Originally released in 2013. Candelilla were founded back in 2001 in Munich and, according to their website, were reborn when new drummer Sandra Hilpold joined the band in 2007. Since then the line-up of the quartet has remained intact with Mira Mann, Lina Seybold, Rita Argauer, and Sandra Hilpold. Candelilla has always been a more interdisciplinary collective than a mere rock band. Candelilla is known for their willingness to live above the so-called standards of German indie pop music, to push the boundaries and to survive the process. For their second album Heart Mutter, the Munich-based all-girl-band traveled to Chicago to record the complete album live in the studio with Steve Albini. Heart Mutter is made of twelve songs, which together form a 46-minute set of noisy fireworks: Sonic Youth in the ear, an explosive mixture of German and English phrases in the head, and a quantity of anger in the belly. Heart Mutter is an intense piece of music that manages to showcase the energy and the spirit of the quartet in all its beautiful rawness.
