EDITORS’ NOTES

Rich in delicate textures and rough-trundling beats, Moderat's third LP sustains their reputation for crafting electronic works with a human touch. This time, Apparat provides a plethora of emotive multi-timbre vocals that reach out from the ether he has dreamed up with fellow Berliners Modeselektor. The mix is hypnotic over the stutter-step of "Running," and made woozy by the glitchy distortions of "Reminder." But “Intruder”—with its melodramatic piano hits, luminous synth chords, and Reichian rhythms—exemplifies the album's gauzy air of mystery, with lyrics depicting an alternate world that emerges only in sleep.

The Best Around

Somehow Moderat is even better than the sum of it's parts… (Modeselektor/Apparat).
Even more implausible III is better than II which was better than I. I hope they stay around for a long long time.

The greatest album I've ever heard

Soulful and inspired, this album is seriously underrated. I always feel more introspective after listening to Moderat- their music is a breath of fresh air.
