Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand


[Red Threads sleeve]"Red Threads" (Album, 2014) 

Self release/Bandcamp

Effortlessly walking away with the 'most uncompromising name of the year' award, British male/female duo Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand (perhaps unsurprisingly) firmly throw down the gauntlet on the musical front too. Which is satisfying. Having established such a resolutely 'fuck convention' attitude to naming themselves, anything less would have felt like a cop-out. This is their third release and their first album. 

In naming themselves Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand (Noun: The thing that is almost the thing you want... but not quite) they're seemingly uninterested in their discover-ability (either by word of mouth, and good luck typing that into Google), and instead focus purely on what's important – integrity. That's not to say Red Threads winds up being a worthy but un-listenable release. Not in the slightest. They've put both heart and soul into producing an admittedly dark and challenging series of soundscapes but in doing so have turned in a beautifully honest, if abrasive, suite of compositions. 7/10
