Here’s what happened since we last spoke Re: Apparat: There’s a new podcast by Sascha Ring for the relaunched Groove magazine website. Also, there’s a pretty, unofficial music video for the new Apparat song ‘Goodbye’, which features the ethereal voice of Austrian singer and musician Anja Plaschg, better known as Soap&Skin. The video comes with images by German director Fritz Lang, taken from his 1928 silent espionage thriller ‘Spione‘. Nice to look at – but not as nice as the story about that little robot in the official Samam Keshavarz-directed ‘Song of los’ music video (see at the bottom of this article) that we mentioned the other day.
Despite the song and video, Ring of course isn’t saying goodbye at all, au contraire: his new album ‘The Devil’s Walk’ (listen here) is out now via Mute Records and Electronic Beats recommends his European tour with Apparat Band (which you can get a taste to with the new Slices Magazine DVD from our latest Electronic Beats Festival in Prague, for more dates see below). And: don’t forget to come to Electronic Beats Festival Bratislava, Slovakia on October 15th, where Apparat Band will be joined by Lamb and WhoMadeWho.
To celebrate, we’re giving away two signed CDs of Apparat’s ‘The Devil’s Walk’ deluxe edition (see above), one of them bundled with an also signed copy of Apparat’s recent DJ-Kicks compilation. Just fill in the form below and keep your fingers crossed.
