Baader Brains

New Era Hope Colony 12″ LP

Black Vinyl | 319 copies

Two years since the fated members of the Young Tiger Free Organization began their astral journey to Procyon, the time-lock on these recordings has finally opened, and now-for a limited time-we are able to bring you Baader Brains’ second, final and posthumous sonic treatise. Bringing to mind the knocked-out-teeth vibe of David Tarling’s Nervous Breakdown-era Black Flag production values, and somehow mixed with the highbrow artistry of Windham Hill easy-listening releases, Baader Brains here achieves the equivalent of a ketchup-and-ice-cream mash-up. Lyrically there is much talk of mysterious glows, preparation for evacuations, and roadmaps to a better tomorrow. Whether the ‘Brains grasp-or even understand-the gravity of their proclamations, time and history will yet be the determining factor. The New Era Hope Colony EP is not only a meditation on our current predicament, but also a beacon of hope looking towards a yet-to-be-determined future. Indeed, with this record the paradoxes and promises of The Incomplete Unfinished Works… will finally be resolved.
– Jim Glauner (Trouser Press)
