Who's excited about a new Moderat album and tour ? They'll be releasing their third album on April 1st (it's not a joke !)
Moderat was one of the best show I saw in 2014.

As for Modeselektor, I've seen them something like 8 times and it's one of the most entertaining electronic music act to see live, especially when they're performing with their VJ friends Pfadfinderei.

New track : Reminder  ;D

First show of the tour was tonight in Paris. It was awesome! I also got to buy the album 3 days before street date at the merchandising booth, and I love it. "Intruder" is the best track of the album in my opinion. I've been playing it on repeat.


Album leaked ten days ago. I haven't been listening to it as much as I could have. There's also a Live In Berlin album. Maybe that was being sold at the gigs too?

I struggle to make out the lyrics at the begining of Intruder (...they come passing by...), and later on it just seems to be "when I sleep at night". Perhaps this is Moderat's equivalent of "Enter Sandman". I like it though - the melancholy piano line and the pulsating groove. It's probably my joint favourite with Finder - one of those tracks that leaves me wanting more. Overall I'm not sure I'm gonna like this album as much as II.

Just realised they have a London gig on 2nd April which is sold out. I missed them last time too. D'oh!
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

I discovered them recently and liked them so much that I exchanged an Underworld ticket for a Moderat ticket. I'm going to the show tonight

Woah. That's an endorsement and a half.
If I were to acquire an album to listen to while I'm working today, where should I start?

I really enjoyed "Bad Kingdom", but don't know anything about their albums

no idea, no idea

Thanks! Nice Koze remix of that tune too ^

I guess I'll get all three and see what happens.

Bad Kingdom actually reminds me a little of Bob Moses. Sultry house.

II is their best album in my opinion, but all 3 albums are excellent. I'd say start with the first one, it'll get you hooked !
You can listen to "A New Error" on the first post of the topic, which is the first track of the first album, and the best introduction to Moderat possible :)
Bad Kingdom is a good track but far from being in my favourites.

I'm not the biggest Underworld fan so I can only encourage this ! The show was amazing, you'll have a great time :)

Well that was amazing. It's really cool to see an Electronic band play live. You can see them manipulate the bpm on the beats and pitch on the melody. The vocals and (bass) guitar add to the live experience.
Also bought II and III

Next thursday Underworld (yeah, only exchanged my extra ticket  ^-^)

Really great album! Strong, melodic and breaks.

Agreed. I'm too playing it on repeat.
Hi Kevin!

III is now out, and the instrumentals and bonus tracks are there too on streaming platforms ^^





Also, quote from an interview on their live setup :

Quote
I re-programmed some sounds we used the modular for in the studio. It's nice because you have much more modulation moments. We have one part in a song, which we call the 'Chemical Brothers part' as it's full of modulation."

Nice. I'll probably be going again in october

Will go in september at Moscow.
Hi Kevin!

I wish they had Intruder in the video :( Or the 10 minutes of techno improvisation.

The little synth melody around 0.35 on Reminder...reminds me of the intro to Skream's remix of In For the Kill. Just sayin'.
