“j US t”—pronounced “Just Us”—is the new album from legendary Hamburg band Faust.
The Hamburg krautrock institution Faust invite the whole world to use their new album as a base on which to build their own music. The tracks presented by founder members Jean-Hervé Peron and Zappi Diermaier are clearly, intrinsically typical of Faust in their own right, yet offer enough space for completely different works to develop. Which is exactly what they hope will happen.
Whilst Diermaier largely remains true to his habitual handiwork – drums and percussion – Peron, as we might expect, incorporates all manner of unusual sonic sources alongside his bass, various string instruments and piano, even using a sewing machine as a metronome. Tracks like “nur nous” and “ich bin ein pavian” show that Faust have lost none of their predilection for avant-garde Dadaism and improvisation. Peron and Diermaier actually surprise us with folkloristic excursions (“cavaquiñho”, “gammes”). In short, there is something for everyone to work with here. Peron and Diermaier await the results with bated breath.
