Einstellung Formed in 2004. In 2006 their debut album "Wings Of Desire" was released on CD on Chatterbox Records. At the same time, "Sleep Easy Mr Parker", a 28-minute, one-track CD single was released on Bearos. Both releases and their loud, heavy shows garnered them much attention (the unusually long, trance-inducing, krautrocker "Sleep Easy Mr Parker" appeared on the BBC website). "...when we tell you that there isn't an Einstellung song that's shorter than 7 minutes and yet they write the most interesting music we've heard in years, please take it as the highest of praise.
Power, beauty, noise, melody, hypnosis, simplicity. Blending glorious monotonous "Krautrock" with melodic tones and heavy slabs of Sabbath riffage, whilst finding time to declare sonic warfare on those tinnitus victims who have passed the point of no return". More recently "Wings Of Desire" was released on double-vinyl on Capsule Records and Einstellung now have their own label, Powerkrautrecords and a second album due imminently.
Einstellung's work has been likened to My Bloody Valentine ('Schwester' is probably the sort of thing people have been thinking of in the past when they've ventured similarities between Einstellung and My Bloody Valentine; that is to say that much of its duration is spent picking the listener up, carrying him to the runway and letting him admire the turbined bellow of the jet engines), Bardo Pond and Neu! ("If Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother had undergone their musical educations in 1990s Birmingham instead of 1960s Berlin, the music they would have made together under the Neu! banner probably would have sounded a lot like Einstellung's debut, Wings Of Desire") amongst others.
