Air Cushion Finish’s distinctive sound palette reconciles pop music with experimental electronics, think Alan Bishop meets White Noise (with a touch of Super Collider?) ... Air Cushion Finish formed in Berlin in 2007 and comprises of composer jayrope and natural vocal synthesizer Lippstueck, who have graced Berlin’s underground scene together since the 1990's. Lippstueck sings, wordless and backwards in time while his partner jayrope tends DIY, electronic, string or percussion instruments small enough to fit into a small suitcase. Changing setup and subsequently music is programmatic to the band, resulting into an unforeseeable slow motion cacophony of whispers, bleeps, rhythms and harmonies. There’s a notion of Dada, but you never know.
The 8th album of ACF marks their current state of poetical accident, swaying, swinging and bouncing, boldly careful, like a transparent tattoo on your forehead.
