Now Hear This: Urlaub in Polen | All

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Urlaub in Polen have always been a band that defies categorization. All is probably their most formally coherent album so far, but it is nevertheless anything but a work of genre.

What the songs on All have in common is an architecture evoking Krautrock, developing sprawling synthesizer and guitar workouts on the foundations of finely woven rhythm arrangements. The echoes of West Coast pop (the harmonies and the bass!), of Rhineland tech house and of early Dire Straits (the vocals and the guitar production!) make All a characteristically versatile and international affair.”
