Insanely productive Pieter Kock of Berlin’s OTannenbaum serves up an album full of polyrhythmic collages, hovering ostinatos and explosions. 300 pcs
General aesthetics of sound: flying marble in an underground scenario totally overground. Planet of the Superapes, being a soundtrack of now, is composed of the following chapters:
Night Clubs: hard grooving eight and a half minutes, gently topped with cosmic synths and distant choirs.
Phillipines: strings and weightless vocals telling of hope and loneliness over a driving beat.
Oedipus Listen: euphorically floating atmosphere. ecstasy.
Planet of the Superapes: title track: dark, ghostly, naked, melancholic, dramatic. With a good pinch of optimistic fun.
Page 25–30: total apocalyptic drama, agressive rhythm.
A warm and inviting yet alienating record for an interesting summer.
