Bremen artist ULLI BOMANS is releasing his second album under his real name,‘SORT BY DRAGGING,’ on the Berlin-based SHITKATAPULT label. His debut album ‘Riven’ followed a long series of music productions under his alias Schieres and numerous maxis, albums, remixes and tours together with Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere and their band of electronic thunder experiments, Shrubbn!!. This time, the listener loses himself entirely in the gloomy, captivating worlds of sound or, better yet, cities of sound and their digital abysses. It is quite spooky, at times sinister and implies (songs of) the homeland, completely in line with Fritz Lang. Metropolis, only this time in a modern, more modest form, an understanding of traces, excerpts, transcripts from microcosms, which then seem absolutely harmonious and tempered to a strange well-being. All at once, very clear parallels emerge – to the art, images, sculptures, the understanding of his sculptural and visual art, which takes him from Bremen to Detroit and back.
