The german instrumental duo SANT OTTEN already teamed up for building the first walls of sound in 1999.
Since then they released 4 albums and several eps together. In 2009 they joined Denovali Records to realize their 4th length “Morgen Wieder Lustig” followed by a split record with MAJEURE – the solo project of A.E.
PATERRA from ZOMBI (relapse records) – in 2010. With “Fast neu ist auch gebraucht” the full length includes an homage to the old Krautrock heroes NEU! just as a ROBERT FRIPP influenced 13 minutes monster piece like the title track Gottes Synthesizer.
Other songs (“Die Welt ist ja nicht zum aushalten” or “ich verlasse mich selbst”) are rather influenced by STEPHAN OTTEN’s energetic electric drums.
Mellow epic ambient hymns like “Wir sind deine Propheten” or “Das Ende vom Lied” are their great instrument to create a connection between specific soundscapes to make a coherent album out of the single tracks.
The main excellence of this full length is that SANKT OTTEN are combining influences of an old genre with elements of today’s music to a new interesting mixture.
The vinyl comes as a thick 180g gatefold version – the cd in nice digipaks. FOR FANS OF KLAUS SCHULZE, ZOMBI, BRIAN ENO or KRAUTROCK in general.
