UBIK paint - A Collection of 2006 Remasters (GER)
One of the many sideprojects of MEMBER & STOLLE. This here is a remastered edition of some tracks by a band Stolle was involved some years ago (1996-2001), called UBIK PAINT.
Not all tracks on this collection are great (e.g. "Life is Grey"), but some are simply brillant ("Laß sein was den Blick trübt", "La Verite"). The musical approach is – as usual – an experimental one, that brings to mind older Krautrockers, especially FAUST ("How does it Feel") and CAN ("Laß sein..."). But there is also room for the occasional pop tune ("Beautiful"), sometimes sung in a depressed KEVIN-AYERS-Voice ("Late") or arranged like a late THE CURE ballad ("As It Is").
This is a song collection of many contrasts, and the industrial-experimental track "Quiet Earth" is THE perfect closer. Recommended!
