Camping Suburban Shore
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Plug Research
You might not be able to understand a single word that Washington, D.C.-based vocalist Henning Fritzenwalder is crooning in his native German (although you can probably guess what "fotografie" means); despite the language barrier, his breezy bossanova vocals translate into something sunny, warm and accessible. Fritzenwalder cuts his tunes with electronically swiped beats and cackling static, and there's a brooding loveliness to these tracks that speaks volumes. Highlights include Fritzenwalder's breathy, deeply sexy stylings on "Verbrechen," where he sounds unquestionably macho against driving guitar-rock chords. This is Kraut rock, baby.
