German Army – Kalash Tirich Mir
- Yerevan Tapes
- ambient / drone ,
German Army is a duo from somewhere just outside of Los Angeles, CA, in the dehydrated and dilapidated outskirts of San Bernardino County.
Little is known about them, but what you need to know is this: a prolific non-stop stream of countless releases in all formats in less than four years for labels like Opal Tapes, Handmade Birds, Beläten and Chondritic Sound. A truly weird approach that mixes up early industrial and exotic infatuations, cheap gear electronics and world music soundbites, obnoxious drones and beach-like radiance. Again, primitive toy drumming and Eastern traditions heritage, twanging guitars and dub reverberating influences.
All this and more is Kalash Tirich Mir, a fucked-up name like it’s supposed to for the band’s fifth full-length on vinyl LP. Fourteen tracks that will mess your mind up and make you wander around German Army’s wilderness.
