The Blue Angel Lounge - In Times 2006 - 2010 CD
The last we heard of The Blue Angel Lounge, the group abruptly split up in July 2014. Since then, it's been mostly quiet on the western front, as far as the reclusive band from Hagen were concerned. And then suddenly, out of nowhere a cryptic ‘Youtube’ message: “The Blue Angle Lounge. Double LP. In Times. March 2016.” And as quickly as it appeared, it disappeared again.
But this much can now be confirmed, in March by containing both carefully selected demos of their three previous studio albums „The Blue Angel Lounge“ (2008), „Narcotica“ (2010) and „A Sea Of Trees“ (2014) as well as previously unreleased recordings, In Times reflects the coherent work & progress of the band between 2006 und 2012 and offers an unfettered image of the band at its œuvre-peak. Thus belies the purpose of the album within the very nature of its title: The name derives from the eponymous piece „In Times“, which appeared exclusively on the 8MM Musik compilation that was released in 2013 on occasion of the label's ten year anniversary and was originally composed during the „Narcotica“ sessions in 2010.
