PLANET OBSOLESENCES Paperwalk out now
Ever heard of a music style named 'Gump'? Never mind, at the moment there is only one
band worldwide that will surely bring some masterpieces to this mysterious genre: Planet
Obsolesence, indie newcomer from Potsdam/Germany, who gives the term 'jam' a whole
new dimension. Just like 'Gump': Named after the last remnant of the cigarette, just before
the filter burns. And that's also how the music sounds - easygoing, smoky, leaned back.
Devo, Velvet Underground and Alien Sex Fiend are blazing in the remnants of the embers,
somewhere a bit of New Order is still smouldering. Sure, you could call it postpunk or new
wave - but with such a deep relaxation those styles have hardly been presented as by
these four guys on their way to anywhere.
