The Notwist

Formed near Munich as a post-hardcore band, the Notwist gradually began to embrace a fusion of classic '80s indie pop songwriting and scruffy electronic backings indebted to Oval and Autechre. The quartet is comprised of brothers Markus and Micha Acher (on vocals/guitar and bass, respectively) plus programmer/keyboard player Martin Gretschmann and drummer Martin Messerschmid. Their self-titled 1989 debut and 1992's Nook were rough-and-tumble punk LPs. Third album 12 marked the group's first flirtation with electronics, though the chord structures and vocals of Markus Acher marked the Notwist more as an alternative band. The band then gained an American distribution deal with Zero Hour, and after 12 was reissued, fourth album Shrink -- almost entirely abstract electronic in nature -- appeared in 1998. Neon Golden (2002) and The Devil, You + Me (2008) were both song-oriented in nature, albeit with electronics continuing to play a significant role in the band's material. In 2013, the band resurfaced with the single "Close to the Glass." The album of the same name, which boasted some of the Notwist's most accessible songwriting and experimental instrumentation, arrived in early 2014.

Neon Golden Changed My Life.
Every electronic/i n s t r u m e n t a l act doesn't need to be either Mogwai or Massive Attack. There is place for more reserved music like this. Just because they aren't screaming and shouting (figurativel y ) doesn't mean they aren't saying anything.
Definitely enjoyed this music.
Why would you wonna crap on this? So it's not the best around, there's always plenty of material which is a sin not to spit on, and THIS is definitely not.

I love their music. :D
Interesting discussion. Well, I've heard two of The Notwists songs, and like them both. That's a pretty good start, but I need to hear more.
To a certain extent I agree with longfade on this one: Wimpy, missing the passion you feel from a band like massive attack
longfade1- nope never enough. and you forgot to mention how delightfuly melodic they are ;)
Ooohhh - "a fusion of 80s indie pop songwriting" ! Don't we have quite enough of these crappy, wimpy, indie bands? Jesus, they all sound exactly - EXACTLY - the same.

hear some shoe gaze and Tears for Fears...Okay two good songs in a row hear some pavement
I like the vocals.
why does it seem the band is refusing to take credit for their earlier album "12" where their best song "The Incredible Change of Our Alien" resides? They dont include it on their website's discography or anywhere else, the only place i can find it is on amazon.com where people are selling the album for like $30 used!
