Berlin and Hamburg-based Das Bierbeben are a stormy electro 5-piece, and this is their sixth release on Shitkatapult. Member J. Müller says of Alles Fällt: "Bad advice or jewel? We like our new album. There were some long nights and days; even with the prevalence of expanded consciousness some favorable listeners of electronic music react either spitefully or aggressively to a slightly misprogrammed bass drum. The style and messages of our lyrics are thus in opposition to this tension." Lifting influences from as diverse entities as Asmus Tietchens, Faust, Asia Hung, Peer Raaben, Dopplereffekt and Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Alles Fällt seeks to distract your average electronic listener into total sedation. With hypnotic bass throbs, danceable beats, '80s keyboard scrawl, and driving guitar, paired with soft, listless female German vocals, this record is an irresistibly smooth, smoky club companion.
