last years acclaimed 'blitz ep' showcased a band on fine form, a kitsune dance-off that rocked floors when they dropped in clubs from japan to jakarta. it was, however, only the tip of the iceberg...10 tracks each with their own vibrant identity, this is the sound of a band welding dancefloor pugilism onto crafted sonic sculpture. "the first album has an outer space style," muses jens moelle, "but this one arrives down on earth, it has more songs, more humanity, more depth." but anyone worried that this means the band have become whiny singer-songwriters need not fear, digitalism rock as hard as they ever did - if not harder. like all energized rockin' music there's a heavy seam of madness in digitalism's sound. the track 'reeperbahn', named after their native city's notorious red light district, is a festival-friendly breakbeat monster that will give the prodigy a run for their money. there's lethal dancefloor weaponry throughout; antibiotics is a techno explosion reminiscent of the klf, with a looped sample exclaiming, 'you will be disqualified', while miami showdown is equally epic acid-fest. all punctuated by the pop gems just gazin' - an unexpectedly a delicious combo of local hamburg singer cathe and computer-programmed acoustic guitar - and the julian casablancas co-write forrest gump.
