The Notwist are that rare commodity: an institution which is continually on the move.
Founded almost 25 years ago, the band returned this year with an album unlike any other in their catalogue. Out now, 'Close To The Glass' finds the German band absorbing yet more electronics, allowing this to fuse with rock songcraft in bizarre, enticing ways.
Now, The Notwist have confirmed plans for a Record Store Day (April 19th, write it down). Taken from their recent album, 'Run Run Run' will be pressed onto tasty 12 inch vinyl for fans and collectors.
Intriguingly, the A-side is a doublegroove cut of the original track and a remix by German producer Ada. On the flip, The Notwist have placed the exclusive unreleased track 'Magnificent Fall' and a remix of album track 'Into Another Tune' by Italian producer Nuel.
'Run Run Run' itself was designed as a deconstructed blues track, with each band taking it in turn to re-work one another's performance.
A deeply conceptual piece, Ada turns 'Run Run Run' into something rather more linear, albeit with a loose-limbed jazz sensibility.
Listen to it now.
