Lunapark: Gefangene Vögel LP

Lunapark: Gefangene Vögel LP

So I recently discovered that I’m really into NDW (German new wave). Bands like Palais Schaumburg and Grauzone are totally up my alley now. I know nothing about this group other than that this 1982 album was the only one they put out. Not sure if it’s some sort of cult classic or anything, but listening to this reissue, it sounds fantastic. Lots of minimalist synths, shadowy German vocals, and some more upbeat post-punk moments (“Dieser Tag”). “Lederhosen” seems like the requisite silly German synth-pop single, but other songs here go a lot deeper. Good stuff.
