NEW REWORK ALBUM "pleasure is pretty"

new rework album "pleasure is pretty" out on november 2007: After several releases for the Frankfurt based label Playhouse during the last years Rework now present their second longplayer, on which they continue their work on thrilling post-retro-like New Wave hits and although „Electroclash may have run itself ragged, Rework hasn't stopped giving it another shot.“ Combined with a new rock-rooted attitude and the new female front singer Sascha Hedgehog, who „finds herself singing 'Love Love Love Yeah' abandoning Gallic sensuality in favour of Hoxton-esque disenchantment, programmers Daniel Varga and Michael Kubler wear their sunglasses at night, punching out beats fresh out of 1981.“ For the release they chose the kind of krautrocky imprint Pavlek Records based in Eastern Berlin and Hausmusik Distribution as their partner. Avoiding a long and energeous label search, they prefered to sattle the release within their related network. According to the new formed band-appeal in their music and performance, they decided to leave Playhouse fort hat „roadtrip“. The record felt bit to rocky for the guys from Frankfurt and so Rework came up with the idea of leaving the label for the longplayer, but keeping it tight with Frankfurts Playhouse in order to continue droping their maxi outputs there. The record may not be seen as a turn in the Rework sound, as more as some logical progress for the band: Keeping in touch with dancefloor-culture and at the same time opening up to a more New Wave orienteated kind of feeling to the music. As result the record is filled with their well apprecitated cold dancefloorhits and Elektro-Gitarr-Synth-Ballads. All disguised with straight rhythm patterns and synth-guitar lines in tradition and emotion of Eighties Clubculture and their house music background. Besides that and thanks to their new singer s. hedgehog they also pushed up their ready to rock glam-factor, when they enter stage and start to pump their „Who loves You“ elektro wave sound through the PA-stacks. „Ready for Pressure, Ready for Pleasure...“ „Dont fuck with love, it´s fucking life...“ and „You are so sick and sweet, I am losing myself....“ are some of their lyrical benchmarks, they transport.

Ontem deitei-me com as 4 amostras e não é que acordei já quase sem neura?
Lá para a tardinha tomo outra vez o remédio.
