Figur 5 is Couch's fifth album. Figur 5, as in figure skating maybe, is also structured by the rigorous choreography by means of "figures." The choreography of Couch songs has always been rigorous, too. Or, to put it more clearly: it has always been unambiguous. Each instrument, each sound has its place, its position, and it has been this way since 1995 when the first album by the Munich trio was released, or, two years later, when the band put their pragmatic dealing with sounds into Etwas Benutzen. Figur 5 is also indicative of what sprouted buds and blossoms on the albums Fantasy (1999) and Profane (2001), both released on Matador Records. Couch songs had become pop songs. Instrumental music in a ready-to-break-up-mood. Euphoric hymns, often consisting of four or five notes only. The art of repetitive exuberance. Songs by Couch are like a perfect wave, as a wave on the Hawaiian coast in November. Once burst out, you hear it grow and grow.
