New from Moloko+:
Kismet Radio, Herbst In Peking’s latest album, was released on Moloko Plus in January 2020. The 50-minute CD, packaged in a handsome gatefold sleeve and accompanied by an 8-page booklet, has for a motto Paul Celan’s line “There are still songs to be sung, on the other side of mankind”. But this album, a mixed bag of musical styles and influences, not only draws inspiration from Paul Celan. It is rather, as the CD booklet explains, “a space in the air occupied by Herbst In Peking under the influence of Paul Celan, Diamanda Galas, Arvo Pärt, Killing Joke, Frank Bischof, Bauhaus, Mattafix, Rio Reiser, Mark E. Smith, Kosima…” Rex Joswig and friends on the air, on the other side of mankind… Tune in or be left behind on the wrong side.
