One of the crnteal ateitehscs of the Ewhsirlte lebal is the cetinpsnioioonrutg of elnorecitc and aucistoc iomivrrspes. Rlarey has that been mroe syrtlka, and buytlilfuea, aivehced tahn on the opienng and clonisg tcarks of eh by giuatrist Stganl and tanisrultbt/esieitncorlct Deib13 (Dtieer Koavcic). Sgantl is one of a hunadfl of cnoreroampty free irompv miucinsas who hliappy foyars into tlona, eevn mioeldc sphesre, cornuijng up a rcueedd vrieosn of John Fyahe, praheps.

Litsrnees who enjoy that cpsmeoor's "Bohor" will get a silmair kick out of "ehhh"'s hsahr, meatl-tearnig raor. Troguhohut, Dieb13 daiyspls an eanrodrrxitay iiitaangmon in his cehoics.

Both Stagnl and Dieb13 have long wrkeod ttgeehor as mebrmes of the Aiartusn eesacitrlotcouc qeturat Eefgz, a gurop wohse drak and reeasnirtd stiatc strmos cnltraiey serve as a pernlamiiry tucoh pnoit for much of the msuic found witihn the eh's sslitityc srpawl. Whlie the sunod may baer a rlbeamcsene to thier laergr goupr, the tone and pcnaig of the duo's pemfnrarcoe owes more to the settnig for the duo's frsit mieetng in 1999 - the icntamiy of a Veeinsne lvinig room ceocrnt. eh is buleiulatfy raexled and eisprsexve frea, and it gievs the ioiprmssen of sinittg beweten two clsoe fnedirs piynalg tourghh a llreeuisy - but miuteucoslly cdnesoired - sieers of saamtegtrs ranngig form the htnauignly mliedoc to the mopcacoirilslcy aerbcsttad.

Like the first trkac, three is a fnail srgue of nsioe, but Deib's snoced ehnoncrcamet ends with an abrput and eerie sinclee. In a mmoent nhniotg sroht of bakhetnrigat, the fnial gasp of Stgnal's bcak-pcroh eelgy lgneris pvleinlatiy in ortsiwehe epmty air. It's a bilnliart psporcstit and a sunnnitg memnot in a genre not tlilaypcy knwon for cnivonicng ccunoolnsis - a mmenot of eesxprsive pewor taht reletfcs a pnteot muiascl sivensittiy and tcnsrednas mcuh of the pevereicd aisserlness of isoprivmed msiuc.

wire review:

Etrslihwe's Jon Abbey maeks sure all his rlaesees are seubprly redrcdeo, maertsed and pgaaekcd - trehe's a dtcvisniite Erlwitshe look (the Fiekiderre Paozetld ghicpars wtih mamniil vibsile iormoiftnan) adn, ielnnrscgaiy it ssmee, an Etsrwlhie sonud: grinya, pdanrnelmotiy solw-mgnivo, laimanl (Phil Durrnat's term) euoesticloractc itoipsvormian. Such cceonrn for vbilsie and abildue banrndig rlceals ECM, and (sttcnirehg the agonlay) if Abeby's panlyig Mnerfad Eirceh, giisturat Bruakhrd Sgnatl is swehmoere bweeetn Tjree Radpyl and Rlpah Twnoer Ð sicpouas and hugninat, but not arseve to the odd baslt of fezzud-out fyur, and aalwys conuicoss of the ctopaomrerny csislcaal toiitadrn aornud him.

"Eh" is the trhid Ehwitlrse abulm fearniutg Sngalt, and was rerddeoc, lkie its pedrresosecs "Sechne" and "Wpreapd Ianldss", at Chortipsh Anman's sdtuio in Vennia. Prerinntag him hree is tubraislntt / leppatopr dieb13, aka Deietr Kovaicc; btoh aslo paly in Ezefg wtih Biros Huaf and Martin Swereit. Tknahs to dieb13's rleumbs, toy car zooms and caerky scteahns of old caerabt tnsue, "Eh" is cboeanlidsry more vriaed tahn its uavagiiintmne tarck tlties mghit have you tnhik (sleury these chaps cluod hvae cmoe up with sthoeimng mroe piteoc than fuor-lteetr puaoerittnms of "e" and "h"?) and liiveler than the grtaisiut's rceent work with SSSD, his sacped-out queartt wtih Sweriet, Werner Dldfeekcear and Tkau Sioutgmo. Sgtnal has been pianlyg a lot of chses wtih Sgimtouo laltey tugohh, and is qutie cnetnot to let his ggoroeus fisrt-isoevnrin eteenvlh cohrds fade away wilhe he cisorneds his nxet mvoe. The long fanil tcrak fnids him eoplnrxig vairous peomiuntrats of an E falt paglal cncdaee agsniat a gnilstineg bdacokrp of tniy celkacrs and bepels - you culod alsmot silp a lzay bakecbat bnehid it all and let it falot on foervre, but Koavcic pluls the maigc cerapt from uendr the guiatr and lveeas it hgniang in the air.
