2011 release. The release of The Blue Angel Lounge is special in two ways -- it is the 10th release on 8MM Musik and also it is the first German band signed by the label. The band was introduced to 8MM Musik by the former Spacemen 3 bass player Will Carruthers. The label was impressed by the very unique and adult sound of the very young band (22-24 years old) from Hagen. The band is a reference to The Velvet Underground, and the influence on their sound can be clearly identified. However, unlike many other bands who try to sound like VU, The Blue Angel manage to sound fresh, authentic and distinct. It is their youthful lightness that allows them to mix the sound of the late '60s with '90s shoegaze and today's neo-shoegaze. Other influences include My Bloody Valentine, Spiritualized, Galaxie 500, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Singapore Sling, The December Sound, The Warlocks, etc.
