    KALI FAGERBERG IS A FORMER HARSH NOISE PERFORMER (AKA BLANK VERSE). HE MOVED FROM SWEDEN TO GERMANY AND DECIDED TO REVAMP HIS SOUND. ON THIS DEBUT ALBUM UNDER THE ALTERED SPELLING, HE FLAWLESSLY FUSES ELEMENTS OF ATONALITY AND EXPERIMENTATION WITH POST-PUNK, MINIMAL INDUSTRIAL, COLD-WAVE, ELECTRO, NEW WAVE AND WEIRD, ANGULAR POP-ROCK SONGS. STRONG JOY DIVISION AND (OLD) CURE-ESQUE GUITAR WORK PEDALING, DESPERATE MALE VOCALS WITH A SWEDISH ACCENT, AND A MULTITUDE OF INTERWOVEN SYNTHESIZER STYLES. PROGRAMMED DRUM PATTERNS STOPPING AND STARTING, GIVING FREE-FORM SECTIONS THEIR PLACE IN BETWEEN. THIS MUSIC IS DISJOINTED ENOUGH TO STAY EMOTIONALLY UNCOMFORTABLE YET DRIVING AND EVEN CATCHY ENOUGH TO MAKE THE AIRWAVES. SOUNDS LIKE XIU XIU, DEPECHE MODE, CABERET VOLTAIRE, NEW ORDER, BOUYANT SEA, OMD, KRAFTWERK, AND MAYBE A TINY TOUCH OF PSYCHIC TV AND RUSSIAN TSARLAG, HIDDEN UNDER THE TINGE OF SINGER-SONGWRITER SENSIBILITY. ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR, EASILY. FOR FANS OF "WEIRD" AND "NORMAL" MUSIC ALIKE.

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Idiots & The Envious via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
