Another Powerkraut Records Reissue!

Originally released in 2011 on First Fold Records and long since sold out, the 40-minute CD single "Chromatistes" also sees a reissue. A band members' favourite, Chromatistes comes in a standard plastic CD jewel case with hand-printed sleeve on Powerkraut Records (PK009). Available now in the Store.

More Powerkraut Records Ltd Album Reissues!

With the reissue of Einstellung's recent double album "All and Nothing" comes news of two more reissues. Due to demand the first two albums, "Wings Of Desire" and "...And The Rest Are Thunder" have been reissued with redesigned sleeve art. Wings Of Desire takes on the beautiful artwork of Lucy McLauchlan, a variation of the artwork adorning the album's double-vinyl release in 2009 whilst ...And The Rest Are Thunder's redesign is more subtle, adding an image of the band in the studio on the rear. Limited numbers of both releases come in standard plastic CD jewel cases with hand-printed sleeves on Powerkraut Records. Available now in the Store.

All and Nothing Reissue!

Einstellung's sold out double album "All and Nothing" has been reissued due to demand. We have been inundated with requests for a reissue after the initial limited edition run sold out. The reissue does not include the natural card foldout sleeve and card inserts containing limited photography (new sleeve design above). The reissue is released, like the original, on Einstellung's Powerkraut Records in standard jewel cases with hand-printed sleeves. Limited numbers vailable now in the Store.

New Powerkraut Records Free Releases!

PK006 consists of five demo recordings, three tracks from Einstellung's second album "...And The Rest Are Thunder": "Das Zerknittern Mit Einer Kay", "Zu Schlecht (zeitwort)", "Sich Zu Schaukeln Ist Oberst", the remaining tracks being "Ich Rechne Damit, Dass Sie Blitzen" & "D Glaub Wie Haus". The demos were recorded at Powerkraut, Einstellung's rehearsal space in 2008. PK007 consists of three demo tracks for the 2016 album "All and Nothing". "Monstermensch", "Ei!" and "Erwähnen Nicht Die Wah" were all recorded at South & City College Birmingham by live sound engineer and lecturer Nils Edstrom. Both releases were recently mixed by Steve Hough and are available as free downloads via Einstellung's Bandcamp page or low cost CDR with hand-printed sleeve via the Store. Videos of the three "All and Nothing" demos can be found on Einstellung's YouTube channel.

"All"most There!

Einstellung's 3rd album will be a double! "All And Nothing" will be released in 2 parts. "All" is now complete and sounding great. The tracklisting for "All" is: 1) Das War Jetzt, Dies Ist Dann! 2) Erwähnen Nicht Die Wah 3) Barbarischoen 4) Raumschall 5) Monstermensch 6) Das Ei 7) Mittleren Alter Ruhig. The CD package will be a card digipak with space for both CDs. "Nothing" is yet to be recorded and will be released once complete as a sleeveless CD to join "All" in the package. "Nothing" will be recorded in the same way as "All", using the same studios and equipment, Circle Studios for drums and Powerkraut for bass and guitars.

We are working on another project too. With "Sleep Easy Mr Parker" (one track, just under half an hour) and "Chromatistes" (one track, 40 minutes) we focussed on something outside of songs for an album. The Einstellung sound but different. The new project will be 51 minutes with guest musicians. More news to come.

Katastrophy Wife “All Kneel - 10th Anniversary Edition"

A decade on from it’s critically acclaimed UK release, Katastrophy (Kat-as-trophy) Wife’s sophomore album “All Kneel” finally makes its way to an international release and its long-awaited vinyl and digital debut. Having cut an iconic swathe thorough alternative rock in the late 80’s and 1990’s with her band Babes in Toyland, Kat Bjelland reemerged from a brief musical hiatus in 2001 with Katastrophy Wife's debut “Amusia”. Alternating between her home in Minneapolis and Birmingham - England, Bjelland enlisted the talents of Sally's Andrew Parker (Bass, now guitarist in Einstellung of course) and Darren Donovan (Drums) and Twist's Vanessa White (Additional Guitars) to co-write and record the bands second offering “All Kneel” in late 2003.

Marking it’s 10th Anniversary release, the album comes complete with the complimentary Bonus Album “For Your Patients”, a 10 track compilation of previously unreleased, rare and exclusive bonus recordings, including alternative takes on album tracks: “Sweetheart” and “No Thing” from Babes in Toyland Producer Tim Mac (“Nemesisters”) and the electro-remix of “Liberty Belle" from Scottish indie-icons Bis.
The 1000 copy Limited Edition, coloured, 180 gram vinyl + "For Your Patients" download link will be available April 19, exclusively for Record Store Day. Find your local participating store here: Record Store Day. The 2xCD & Digital releases follow May 5, on iTunes, Amazon and alike.
Audio Previews of the entire release are available here from: Amazon UK, Amazon US.
