The German Art Students
Kissing By The Superconductor (Self-Released)

By: Mark A. Lawrence the IV

The indie-rock darlings that are The German Art Students bring a bouncy rough edged energy to their album Kissing by the Superconductor. Their sound is a mix of early Belly and the Lemonheads with pop guitar infecting this album from the storytelling of "Steve Vai Boyfriend" to the chaos of "News Nugget" with the songs touched by enough distortion to give it that garage dirty feel. "Jenny Flex" brings together influencing aspects of The B52's and surf guitar of Dick Dale and the Deltones period Southern California beach sound. You can tell they had fun making this collection of lighthearted tunes and that feel transfers to the listener. Rating: B-.
