The Notwist (DE)
Formed near Munich as a post-hardcore band, the Notwist gradually began to embrace a fusion of classic ’80s indie pop songwriting and scruffy electronic backings indebted to Oval and Autechre.
Last 30 January, the German heroes of indie rock released a new record called Messier Objects and it’s basically a compilation of the Notwist’s constantly shifting musical universe. The seventeen tracks display features of ideas, sketches, electronic collages and post-rock.
Listen to the new track Das Spiel Ist Aus below and you’ll find out that The Notwist still blows you away with their contemporary style and masterly musicianship.
