I admit I’ve been missing out on Console‘s charm until only very recently. Based in Weilheim/Munich, they formed in the late nineteen-nineties. Led by TheNotwist‘s lead programmer, Martin Gretschmann, Console maintains a distinct sound that only at times borrows from The Notwist sound. Suck and Run has a beat that just keeps me going, while My Dog Eats Beats is closer to an experiment in electonica than an actual developed song. If yr a fan of anything Morr definately check these guys out.

“Too many people, and actually too many German musicians, take themselves too seriously. I just try not to be like this. I try to be more funny. When we play live, we have a lot of fun on stage, because life is much easier if you laugh a lot,” says Gretschmann in a 2001 interview.Watching Console‘s videos are adequate proof.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    There will be a new Console album out on August 25th. It will go by the name of “Mono”. It will be more ambient-style than the electro-poppy “Reset the Preset”. Sounds good to me!
