05 AUGUST 2 0 1 6 :: Alex's Hand / Kunstler Scheisse (2016, R094 CD/DD)
OUT NOW - CD/DD! RAIG is proud to present: "Kunstler Scheisse", the 3rd studio album by ALEX'S HAND. This one is far more orchestrated than other band's albums, a bit more refined and more complicated. The band happens to be humorous and funny on the surface, yet incredibly intricate in terms of their compositional and arrangement ideas. Their "Kunstler Scheisse" doesn't really fit here or there, its subgenre classifications fall short. And why does it matter anyway? Just listen to the music... CD (8 tracks Ц 62 min.) comes in a full-color 4-panel cardboard folder. $13.00 + shipping.
