about

Bernhard Wöstheinrich's second album as The Redundant Rocker puts the emphasis on the 'song' and the 'feeling', as opposed to the detailed digital editing and inventive effects that marked his playful debut release, Collider.

'Heart' is a melancholy creation, which is strongly reflected in the minor keys and slow tempos of the emotive compositions.

Drawing influences from French band M83 as well as Big Beat styles, Heart possesses a unique take on the notion of 'wall-of-sound' production values.

The fully analogue mix comes courtesy of Clemens Schleiwies and Markus Reuter, who took a more intuitive and "rock" approach than one would usually expect with an electronic album.

The track Alluvium has been featured in an Austrian TV advert.

"An astounding array of instrumental songs that fuse pop and contemporary electronics to generate a relentless dose of exhausting tuneage."
Matt Howarth, www.soniccuriosity.com
