White Days 05:13
Now all looks but is a kind of land I carried towards, just missed a penny looking for owls, Nothing that time wouldn't heal - Following the white days I sing morning songs, it streams, it streams over hills - deep down I shall. And new cities grow vertically, some come down, most don't - crooked love in scratched little hearts. Following the white days I sing morning songs - those who still are born by hand walk by the streams.
May I ask what you do all day long May I wonder how you two get along May I say I will never understand how come May I think that other things might also count How did you find what you found Can I ask how you chose for that one Can I wonder if that is really what you want Can I think what you think one night long
Karma 05:49
I didn't wanna wait in line I pushed in front, thought it will be fine shouting - not very ladylike but, hey, I did it anyway and went about my day. Then everything went wrong I crashed my bike, was late all day long spoiled my dress with blueberry pie but, hey, I thought, well anyway and went about my day with no understanding of the way how lines suddenly get crossed and how everything can go right or wrong how everything you do falls back on you. The following day things looked better until the postman brought me a letter the tax collector was on my tail but, hey, I couldn't pay so I had to get away when I fled my house I left the toaster on after just two hours the house was gone I realized this one was on me and, hey, my dear, I don't know no more what to fear I have no money, no place to go, no bed, and then I hear that deadly viruses are being spread I look up and a jumbo jet is falling from the sky and oh my, we will collide with a huge burning asteroid!
Mush Room 02:32
how am i me if i don't see who others are how are we we if you don't see how we are not you how is he he not me if he can't see who i am how are you who they are if she's you and you won't be it
Over spaces that run on forever fly sounds and silence. We wait for the sun and leaves for days to stretch and for our hands to catch. We move, we change. Light won't be the same. We come and we go. We run hand in hand on green grass in the sun, Finding right, finding wrong.
Geil 04:23
See my calls and hear my signs Crave for light and don't just hide Open wide what's closed inside This is greatness of man We are given what we need To our flaws and life I bow


Playdate Records second release is quite a revelation.
Krachmacher – german for noisemaker – started up as an improvising, avantarde rock experiment. They spread their wings as a noisy, eclectic electro rock being, and now lands with their first album "Paratrooper" with catchy, energetic artrock, which has just as much in common with 90's indie, as kraut rock and dansable noise music. Hear White Days’ pulsating drive, Karma's cool beauty, Geil's liberating craziness – and the majestic finishing track Hymn To Imperfection.

Krachmacher stretch their songs longer than the pop format of the radio, and fill them with brutally beautiful improvised cacophony, surprising structures and innovative transitions. German Eva Pfitzenmaier's feathery touch of old-school jazz in combination with fuzzy screams and an unhindered register is dancing on top of a fiercely driving rhythm section, consisting of the noiserock duo The Sweetest Thrill. After their recording, Krachmacher extended their members with Linn Frøkedal of The Megaphonic Thrift and Low Frequency in Stereo.
