Moderat is a collaboration between the two bands Apparat and Modeselektor. The Germany based band deals mostly in the electronic/alternative genre, with deep instrumentals, brooding beats, and thoughtful lyrics. They are extremely talented, obviously, considering the fact that they have had hours and hours of experience with their own respective bands. And, they’ve managed to create a stunning project that, with each track, grows more and more introspective and more than impressive. Their vocals and backup can be heard in the complex, emotional songs “Bad Kingdom” and “Damage Done,” but Moderat is also remarkably amazing at purely instrumental tracks like “Versions.” It swells and expands gracefully, and the soothing, almost ethereal sounding beats are absolutely stunning. “Versions” is from Moderat’s album II, which was released last year.
