No Way as Way

II is the obviously named second full-length album from Moderat, the German duo comprised of Sebastian Szary of Modeskeletor and Apparat, the pseudonym of Sascha Ring that close followers may recognize from his recent Krieg und Frieden theatrical score project. This musical brain-link, as is often the case, forms something that neither artist could have come up with on his own. Moderat’s first album was lauded for its blend of unique beauty and catchy song structures and the artists continue along these lines with II. The album opens on a rainy day interlude that leads straight into “Bad Kingdom,” a punchy IDM track that gives off an unusually sobering message: this is not what you wanted.

Ring decided to forego any kind of promotion for his latest work, opting instead to have it finished and released as soon as possible. The music itself is almost as quiet as the launch was, predominantly composed slow and hazy ambient tunes. It’s an unconventional album in many ways, not least of which being the fact that it is actually a score.

The latter half of the Aughts finds Modeselektor—Berlin duo Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary—earning a similar reputation with the minimal techno incubated at Teutonic labels like Kompakt, Shitkatapult, and their own home Bpitch Control.
