Album artwork for Tanq by Capri-Batterie

Fresh from their collaboration with Stewart Lee, Capri-Batterie approach the summer of 2021 with the long awaited release of their studio album TANQ. Six new pieces of instant composition that Full Blast drummer Michael Wertmüller describes as ‘more than music’. What does Wertmüller mean by this? Music that crosses boundaries and transcends categorization is now an established tradition in it’s own right. What sets Capri-Batterie apart is their willingness to take the broken walls of genre as read and settle at once into building profound structures from the resultant dust and the debris. This truly authentic approach to music making produces surprising results that are at once bold, subtle and questioning. A music that affords the listener another (an other) set of vanishing points. Hence TANQ. If Cecil Taylor and Blixa Bargeld sat down together and listened to this, they would understand it. This unique and incredible release is one of those rare occasions where we at Dirter are comfortable describing it as “unmissable”.
