This is the record I have been wanting ever since hearing their early 7” EPs (and the track on MRR’s Sound the Alarms comp). It’s well worth the wait. Mülltüte deliver on the promise of their early records and push their sound further than anticipated. They are still the rough and raw hardcore punk band they’ve always been, with the scratchy guitars that sound as though they’re being played through wrecked amps and a crazed vocalist, but here they’re stretching out and making things more interesting with the driving post-punk of “Welle,” a song that makes a great album even greater. The music slows down a bit, and gets a touch more dark and layered. Lianne’s voice comes floating across the din midway through the song and it’s pure gold. The instrumental “Versuche” that follows the raging “Glaube” was totally unexpected, but welcome. It shifts gears for a brief moment, allowing for reflection before going back to full-throttle, marching punk with “Familie, Werte, Traditionen.” They display tuneful elements that give you something to hang on to. Great album from the first note to the last note. It’s here, it’s now, and you better get it.
