My friend Pilar urged me to listen to the new Moderat album and now it's really starting to sink in. Just check out this preview clip of "Rusty Nails". The video is from the album's accompanying dvd.
"The debut single is representative of the musical concept of the trio: a maximal, polished sound aesthetic with atmospheric density with driving but reserved rhythms already developed. On the album version, the proverbial undertow emerges after a few bars with somber, radiant beauty without overwhelming the listener with excessive melancholy. Breathe deep, sit back, and let it work!"
