black midi "Schlagenheim" (2019)
LP (NEW) - Rough Trade, UK, 2019, RT0073LP, First Issue, 180g Vinyl, Gatefold Sleeve
Black Midi’s superb debut album Schlagenheim leaves no doubt as to the band's ambitions or their creative force. They seamlessly blend art, math and noise rock to leave one impressive, earth-shattering debut. The album is a mix of violent and exotic influences, with Talking Heads and Swans coming to mind, but the album creatively stands on its own. It launches into action with "953", a sensory onslaught of chaos, but then calmly flows into peaceful, almost reggae verses to then swirl and build back into the initial mayhem. The album earned Black Midi a Mercury Prize nomination alongside their European contemporaries such as IDLES and Fontaines D.C. It is not recommended for casual listeners, but that’s what makes it so great, we implore you to get weird with it today.
