Camera - Phantom Of Liberty album review
Camera still fahn fahn fahn on the autobahn.
For over 10 years, Hamburg’s Bureau B label has been a hotbed of cutting-edge German electronica and returning Krautrock royalty. Based around aptly named tribal human metronome Michael Drummer, Berlin’s Camera are one of the label’s brightest recent signings, having released two albums, 2012’s Radiate and 2014’s Remember I Was Carbon Dioxide. For the third, Drummer may have found the perfect musical foil for his pulsing ritual motorik in film music composer Steffen Kahles, whose eye for lethal synthesiser concoctions can hark back to the heyday of Krautrock legends such as Neu! and Kraftwerk, while deploying his own brand of multi-hued mystery, imagination and dexterity.
