Sturm Café - So Seelisch, So Schön!
Old School EBM Sturm Café has almost become a cult band here in Sweden and it was not that long ago that Progress Productions picked up this band and caressed them. When I first heard some audio samples before this album was released I first got a little bit disappointed and I really thought this would be one of the weaker releases from this label. I guess I have to learn that Torny Gottberg really knows what he's doing when he select his artists.

The record came by mail and the same evening I continued to paint our lovely computer room. I put on the album and listened while I painted. The music fitted right in when you stood there, sweaty with roller, paint and paper tape. The album was on repeat and before I knew it I was singing along gladly, dancing with the brush swinging along, must have been quite a sight for my neighbors to see.

This album is good, really surprisingly good and if you like classic EBM of the monotone type you really going to enjoy this. Even though there are no surprises when it comes to soundscapes, this album really got what it takes. Playful, hard and elegant.
