Einstellung - Wings of Desire 2xLP

The "Wings of Desire" 2xLP seems to be popping up at various distros, although already released sometime this summer if I'm not mistaken. Einstellung is a band that sounds very German, and their music is in fact inspired by Germany's Krautrock legend Einsturzenden Neubauten, but they're in fact an English outfit featuring members of defunct UK acts such Sally, Grover; Cable Regime and Godflesh. Yes, Godflesh. Despite their roots, Einstellung is not just a sum of the parts but a whole other ballgame. "Wings of Desire" takes the Neu! Krautrock foundation, but then adds layers reminding of My Bloody Valentine, Jesus & Mary Chain, Mogwai and I sometimes hear some Sonic Youth in there as well and you might even say some of the riffing is Sabbath inspired.

"Wings of Desire" comes in beautiful gatefold, is pressed on 180g vinyl and is limited to 500 copies. Definitely worth checking out from Capsule.
