***AVAILABLE AGAIN!!! Vinyl reissue of EINSTURZENDE NEUBAUTEN’s Silence Is Sexy, originally released in 2000 from singer BLIXA BARGELD and his band partners (N.U. UNRUH, ALEXANDER HACKE, JOCHEN ARBEIT and RUDOLF MOSER). This vinyl double album contains the track "Pelikanol," first available as a bonus track with the 2000 release of the album and now for the first time available on vinyl. On Silence Is Sexy they masterfully celebrate the unexpected in the exploration of silence. It is a wonderful album in the classical Neubauten sense; lyrical and melancholy. It's a musical coming-of-age from metal-defying scrap iron sound to constructed melodiousness, with a familiar rhythmic undertow—playful, arrogant, poetic, subversive, dandified and mature. From its first release in 2000 to date, it has doubtlessly remained the group's most complex work and the most fascinating in its evolution. It shows the Neubauten universe from both a known, emotionally moving side, as well as one that is deliberately constructive. It clearly breathes the inimitably rough Neubauten handwriting, while Blixa's voice cuts through intellectual and cryptic texts. It is carried by metal sounds, from which individual instruments can almost no longer be extracted—and by silence. Ultimately, nearly inaudible tones or laughter in the right place can seem more destructive than the most enduring rage. This is an album that won't be ignored; a unique appearance in the history of German rock music. 180-gram vinyl pressing in gatefold jackets.
