Haus Arafna / New York Rhapsody
The mighty Mr. and Mrs. Arafna are back with another set of expertly-crafted angst pop jams. When I heard that part of this was recorded for some sort of New York fashion show, I was pretty skeptical, but Das Haus deliver their strongest material to date. Their sound remains equal parts industrial, minimal synth and power electronics. Although this was recorded in 09 I think it sounds fresher in some ways than last year's full-length, "You." Get it while the link is hot.
