"Deine Stimme Ist Der Urspung.."
Label: aufnahme + wiedergabe (2017)
aufnahme widergabe have gotten the privilege to release the second album by Die Selektion, late May. Last time they released an album was six years ago, their first self-titled album on Fabrika Records. Much have changed since then and it is a more refined and interesting Die Selektion that can be found with their newest album Deine Stimme Ist Der Ursprung Jeglicher Gewalt. The album is roughly thirty-four minutes long.
Schatten, the first song off the release, is a really emotional trip. A song which slowly develops and jabs you straight in the heart. Theres so much nostalgia to be had while listening to it, essentially a very good introductory. Here darkwave meet electronic body music and dance music in an odd combination add to that a trumpet and youre set. It is interesting how it builds up and then unleashes mayhem upon the listener. Rhythms are on point and youre caught up with the motions of the baselines, synthesizers and vocals. A certain distraught tone is brought out by the vocalist, making the setting even more postapocalyptic then it couldve been otherwise.
There is really a perfect groove between the trumpet and the thumping baseline. One discovers complex melodies layered upon one another in perfect synchrony. It hits very deep just before it fades out into nothingness theres something really touching about how the atmosphere goes from energetic to sullen and accepting of its own fate. Personally, theres not been many songs that hit as deep as this one, the only exception being the repertoir of Keluar. Thats a good point of reference when it comes to how expressive the song really is.
Deine Stimme, the last song on this album, really says something about where they might be heading next with future releases. Theres a heavier, more experimental tone to the synthesizers and the vocalist concludes the record mysteriously. Reverberated voices and noisy rambunctiousness a cyberpunk feeling. A clarity, a mission of something even more grandiose. After having listened to this album it feels empty, especially when the last song in the end of it builds up something that mightve even been a tenth song. aufnahme wiedergabe really knew what they had assembled when releasing this.
