A note for folks looking at the Meinschaft tape: the artists aren't super enthusiastic about digital music streaming, so when you look at the album on Bandcamp you will only see one track. However, for those who buy the tape or the digital download, the rest of the album will download as bonus tracks. Want to hear the whole thing? Pick up a tape and hear it just as the artists intended!
MEINSCHAFT rides the ship of indifferent taste through the stagnant and troubled waters of Western civilization. With the winds of materialistic hedonism blowing ever faster through their sails, they generate a perpetual vortex of ritual energy and concentrated spectacle; hurtling humanity closer and closer towards the crushing singularity of PROGRESS. email@example.com
Skrot Up is delighted to introduce the world to Meinschaft, a glorious new project conceived with intense focus and classical rigor. We think you’ll agree that this project speaks eloquently to our present post-truth “situation” in the humid dusk of late capitalism. Sending distress signals from hidden confines near the Great Smoky Mountains, you’d best heed the warning of these pernicious canaries while you still can (and lay waste to a dance floor or two on your way out).
P.S. The description above was eloquently conceived by the Scholz Master: Tymbal Wizard and Skrot Up abettor. We are grateful.
All instruments performed and recorded by Meinschaft. All tracks recorded at The Clams Casino, St. Elmo, TN ("Paradise is a pair of dice") 2016 - 2017
Mixed with Joe Lentini
