about

Zement:Werk is the first LP from Zement.

Some words from Simon Delic from Backseat Mafia / Psych Insight:

"So before we affix this term once again let’s take it elsewhere. The first thing that struck me from clicking on Zement’s bandcamp page was that this was a band from the land of the Bauhaus movement and the land of Kraftwerk. A land where utility/ form/ function have always gone hand in hand. It seems only appropriate then that Zement (you know it means cement, right?) should name the tracks of its album as the natural raw materials of a building:

‘Ton’/ clay

‘Kalkstein’/ limestone

‘Eisenerz’/ iron ore

‘Sand’/ sand

‘Gips’/ gypsum

This on the one hand is very elemental music featuring the sonic building blocks of contemporary sound laid bare. Yet, as the band suggest, there is also a certain sense of alchemy here, a gestalt process in which the different elements come together to make something more. Yes there is something solid and functional about this music, but from that there is also something psychedelic and otherworldly. Listen to it and you gradually seen the structures melt in to a far more diffuse experience, it is Kosmische music which can take you away from the mundane into something altogether more mesmeric."

--

"Wie die Zahnräder einer gigantischen Maschine greifen die Patterns ineinander, vereinen sich zu einem dynamisch vorwärts preschenden Klanggemenge, das den Eindruck erweckt, als würde das Treiben in einer - weitgehend automatisierten Fabrik - dargestellt. Und plötzlich erkennt man: nicht Neu! sind der Bezugspunkt, sondern Kraftwerk, die sich ebenfalls einst anschickten, mit minimalistischen Klängen eine Industrielandschaft musikalisch zu beschreiben." (Jochen Rindfrey)
