8-23-08 Einstürzende Neubauten – Stella Maris

Posted by Sean on August 23, 2008

Well, since we’re still doing German music

I got acquainted with Einstürzende Neubauten on WFMU‘s Strength Through Failure with Fabio. They’re known for making their own instruments out of scrap metal and construction equipment, giving them a very singular sound. Unfortunately, the song that I wanted to post – Let’s Do It a Dada, a fine showcase for their readymade instruments – isn’t on YouTube, or rather it is, but only in live performances with crappy audio quality and hooting fans.

Luckily, Einstürzende Neubauten has plenty of other videos up. This one – Stella Maris, with Meret Becker and off 1996’s Ende Neu – relies more on traditional instruments, so maybe it isn’t the most representative Einstürzende Neubauten song out there.

But I don’t care. It’s very winsome and full of longing, and I just like it.
