AGF PRODUCKTION (GERMANY)
is their fifth studio album.
sounds like a 21st century post techno version of the blues. Since their previous release, both members found families and developed into serious adulthood and are ready to show the world what a German post-techno band can do. The duo are ready to show the blues, with all their dust, moody narratives, and other complicated arrangements, much in the spirit of
John Lee Hooker
-- clear, simple, reduced, honest. This is their interpretation of German 21st century blues. No sampling of old records, but certainly studying the old material helped them to write lyrics about things observed in the multimedia offices of Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. The title track is the key song, with Laub-trademark vocals and pop references that refuse to function as pop. The song is not only a love song to the people in their lives, it is also a pure devotional hymn to the blues.

KITTY YO (GERMANY)
"Laub's 2nd longplayer on Kitty-Yo. With the first CD
, Laub has been compared to a.o. Lamb, Quarks and Björk, and at the same time to the very German 'Berlin 80's'. The remix 12" in '98 then added new influences: drum'n bass style, Laub went dancefloor. Now Laub have found a way to balance on the thin line in between. No distortion on the vocals any longer, harmonies and beats can be found in the... songs (no tracks). One can see a similar evolution to their labelmates Tarwater: the sinister sound of the music does no longer exclude the overwhelming pop-appeal. For this record, the band first took their new drummer Sebastian (also part of Kante) in. DJ Bleed added his voice on answering machine and Stefan Betke aka Pole took an advisory part on the production. Laub are amongst the frontriders of the 'new German wave' coming up once again these days. File under: Electronic Listening/ Trip Hop." Limited stock.
