Premiere: Flug 8 – Trans Atlantik
Today's premiere is a superb nocturnal creeper from Flug 8 via the mighty Disko B camp. Matching the dark and cold of October with crystalline icicle melodies, Trans Atlantik takes Kraftwerk's autobahn fetishism to a darker, spookier place. The brain child of Frankfurt based photographer Daniel Herrmann, Flug 8 is his response to years of photographing musicians on tour, internalising the loneliness and futurism of hours spent in airports. The results have a curious blend of isolation and euphoria that grows in stature with every listen.
An album, featuring collaborations with N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten) and Kristina Krisoffersen (Mono Girl), is set to follow in January 2015. Head to Disko B for more info.
