Neuzeitliche Bodenbeläge

Ich Verliebe Mich Nie

Here we have something very spezial from Dusseldorf's mighty Themes For Great Cities - the debut release for new outfit Neuzeitliche Bodenbeläge, which seems to be a collaborative project from Joshua Gottmanns and recent Growing Bin sensation Niklas Wandt. "Ich Verliebe Mich Nie" is an A-grade NDW dancer, stomping through the smog of your nearest punk club fuelled by grumpy synth bass, neon tinged keys and hushed vocals. Neat nocturnal melodies, warped fx and a snappy song structure recall the best bits of DAF, Grauzone und Der Plan, but this is fresh and forward thinking enough to offer more than a plain pastiche. Over on the flip "Pfleg' Mich" (something like 'care for me' in English) extends a warm embrace and leads us through some optimistic synth riffs and uplifting vocals while the motorik rhythm section drives the track from synth pop serenade into the more kosmische end of the NDW spectrum. As limited as it is lovely, this is every bit as essential as you'd imagine.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: TFGC can do no wrong in my book, and the Dusseldorf label join Growing Bin at the top of my most recommended releases this week. This slender 7" hosts the NDW grooves of Joshua Gottmanns and Niklas Wandt, who join the dots between the contemporary German scene and the 80's pomp of Grauzone, Za Za and Eiskalte Engel.
