Tocotronic Pure Vernunft Darf Niemals Siegen
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Kompakt Pop
If you like Misson Of Burma or Yo La Tengo and speak German, Tocotronic offers a jangly, propulsive dose of indie songcraft. While the CMJ set digests it lovingly, the dance DJs out there can fixate on the Superpitcher and Wassermann mixes, especially the nine-minute Maxi version, which uses handclaps, treated guitar samples and melodic tech-house synth stabs as building material. The finished edifice is a sturdy club track that cloudbursts mid-track into warm, smothering feedback.
