about

Since first establishing its elusive roots in some undetermined location in 2011, German Army has led a darkly addicting, fascinatingly consistent run of surreal dirges on some of the most revered outsider imprints in the game, including Night People, A Giant Fern, Monofonus, Skrot Up, Burka For Everybody, and Yerevan Tapes. Peter Kris, the project’s “known” bandleader, brandishes a flurry of post-industrial vignettes, tinged with dubby effects, atonal clatter, and shimmering, uncanny beauty. On ‘Yanomami,’ German Army tightens its approach to hypnotic, vaguely plunderphonic approach to its signature rhythmic sound collages. Tracks like “Serve in Aramaic,” “Tomochic Rebellion,” and “Advanced Prophecy” speak to scenes both doomed and hopeful, churning through bleak beats and flanked by distorted odds and ends. “Blue Gold Show” and “Copyist” channel some spiritual cousin to Cabaret Voltaire, Ministry, Seefeel, careening in a metallic drift of mechanical movements and blissful melodies. ‘Yanomami’ is the latest chapter in German Army’s sublimely sardonic campaign.
