To Rococo Rot | WIG137 | Released: 18/04/04
Palindromic To Rococo Rot return with a typically graceful series of moving pictures which as ever seek to show us something of our own time, and 'a something elseness'. In each To Rococo Rot record there is a need to establish a unique and truthful perspective, and Hotel Morgen most closely resembles their 1999 masterpiece, The Amateur View, in that the focus is once more on the three members, Robert and Ronald Lippok, and Stefan Schneider, and their quest to make memorable music that is not just, as they once remarked, 'for klick'. Hotel Morgen is their first album for Domino. If you aren't already, it's time to be fascinated by this amazing Central European group, who've just dropped one of the first great albums of 2004. Are you ready to roc(oco rot)?
