The Notwist have been a favourite band of mine for some time now. It was from CBC’s Brave New Waves that I first heard ”Consequence” from their fifth album, Neon Golden. Markus Acher’s soothing vocals are a refreshing change from the commonplace vocals surrounding today’s music industry. Acher (vocals/guitar) forms, with the talents of brother Micha Acher (bass), Martin Gretschmann (programmer/keyboards), and Martin Messerschmidt (drums), a unique and intriguing sound.

Every time I hear a Notwist album, my mind creates an open meadow to meander and discover. I hope this goes for everyone.

Consequence

You’re the colour, you’re the movement and the spin. (Never)
Could it stay with me the whole day long?
Fail with consequence, lose with eloquence and smile.
I’m not in this movie, I’m not in this song.
Never leave me paralyzed, love.
Leave me hypnotized, love.
You’re the colour, you’re the movement and the spin. (Never)
Could it stay with me the whole day long?
Fail with consequence, lose with eloquence and smile.
You’re not in this movie. You’re not in this song.
Never Leave me paralyzed, love.
Leave me hypnotized, love.
Leave me paralyzed, love.
Leave me hypnotized, love.

“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

    Oo, Consequence is a brilliant song. Love that album.

    Thanks for the Ms. John Soda recommendation the other day, btw. ‘Go Check’ is now on heavy rotation in my iPod.
