B. Fleischmann: Angst Is Not A Weltanschauung!

B. Fleischmann
Angst Is Not A Weltanschauung!
Morr Music [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
On the nine-song Angst Is Not a Weltanschauung! electronic guru B. Fleischmann moves into a more indie territory and even lets his own Nick Cave like vocals appear on two of the albums tracks. Of course he uses several guest vocalists with the most notable being Daniel Johnston on
"Phones, Machines And King Kong" that keeps the record moving, diverse and interesting. There is also just the right balance of good beat heavy electronic numbers for longtime fans including the staggering fourteen minute closer "Even Your Glasses Miss Your Eyes" that should make Angst Is Not a Weltanschauung! a worthy pickup for anyone that knows B. Fleischmann by name.

Key Track: "Phones, Machines And King Kong"

Band With Similar Fire: Field Mice
