SchnAAk are one of the most interesting acts I’ve come across for a while. The duo from Berlin, Josen Döpping and Mathias Jähnig, create an extraordinary infusion of math rock, jazz and analogue electro that is laid out in a kind of ordered chaos. Their music is largely instrumental and has evolved dramatically since their previous releases: ‘women on ships are bad luck’ a 5 track EP recorded live back in 2009 and their 2011 full length album ‘Wake up Colossus’.
There’s a stronger emphasis on electronic music in the Cool Drink Town EP through the way SchnAAk replicate electronic through analogue instruments in a similar style to Radiohead. Word on the street is that SchnAAk’s next EP, scheduled for release later in 2012, will explore this area further
You can buy the Cool Drink Town EP through bandcamp for just €4/$5 along with their earlier releases women on ships are bad luck and Wake up Colossus for €4 and €7 respectively. There’s also a video for the first track on this EP ‘stampfus’ on its way that was filmed while the duo were in Namibia.
