Cologne based Jens-Uwe Beyer is releasing this new EP just weeks after his album „The Emissary“ was published on Kompakt’s new sub-label Pop Ambient. While„The Emissary“ was completed by Beyer on his home island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea,„Amor dark pink tencel satin suit“ is very much a collaborative effort. And on exceeding simple classifications. You’ll get this the moment John Stanier (Battles, Ex-Helmet) jumps in with his remarkable drumming on „White oversized fame yarn bolero with John Stanier“. Stanier plays the bouncer at the entrance of your dark alleyway club... and suddenly the goose bumps you were feeling for the last minutes on our skin explode. With music this intense, there’s little time to ponder the classification. And when Stanier is done, there is nothing more than a long goodbye in the air, accompanied by the drums and you breathing in and out slowly. That John and Jens-Uwe are long time collaborators through the outfit „Cologne Tape“ explains why this makes so much sense, despite feeling unheard of before. If Side A takes 8 minutes of its 13 minutes running time to hit the peak, the 12-minute-long B-side gets down to business by the third. Collaborator on „Navy stamp degrade print print oversized viscose hulpil with Barnt“ is another Cologne Tape member, Beyer’s Magazine label partner and neighbour Barnt. Circles everywhere, those ones where you worry they might crash into each other anytime. There is a straight base drum and a snare that somehow bring back memories of the times when industrial was as much of a sound as of a political position – truth be told, these guys don’t seem to do conventional.
