Valerie Trebeljahr and Markus Acher present Left Handed. The title track sees Lali Puna shift from their delicate, electronic sound to the use of an instrument which, until now, was never heard in their music -- namely the sound of distorted electric guitars. Valerie is not shy in admitting that the guitars pay homage to her idols Sonic Youth. However it must be said that Max Punktezahl, guitarist in Contriva and The Notwist tour-member will undoubtedly carry some of the credit for this new sound as he was heavily involved in the recording. Compared to the introversive works that single out Lali Puna's previous releases, Left Handed is, for want of a better adjective, a very expressive number. "Left Handed" is followed up by "Left Handed Dub," a version assembled from the original "Left Handed" sounds. The closing track is a cover version of The Human League's "Together In Electric Dreams."
