Worldwide: Nov 02, 2012


The Dropout Patrol is the name of Jana Sotzko‘s solo project. To perform on stage on her own was never as much fun for her as to write her own songs. A full band outfit should evolve - not necessarily an easy task and an intent cursed with failure several times before, especially if the songs are so close to the protagonist. read more...

Quotes

Of course the relationship between words and music is always a complex web, and the meanings of the songs are never one thing or the other, but here their relationship is more like the arms' length collaboration of recitative than the unified affective proclamations of a massed chorus.

Oliver Arditi

Eine beeindruckende Sad-Rock-Platte, die man auf allen Herbstfahrten mit unglücklichen Lieben und guten FreundInnen am Sommertagen hören sollte. Und so schön der Sommertag auch sein mag, an dem man diese Platte spielt: Melancholisch wird es auf jeden Fall.

Missy Mag

Ein starker Auftakt, bei dem man gespannt sein darf, wohin die Reise führen wird.

De:bug

Beizeiten klingen Songs sogar jazzig, ohne die avancierte Rhythmik aufzugeben. Mehr als ein anregendes Update der Farina-Schule, wenn das nicht schon ein kaum zu toppendes Lob wäre.

Intro

Die hörbar mit Herzblut geschriebenen Titel flirren durch den Raum und hüllen den Hörer in die wunderbare Melancholie des Seins ein.

Dropout Patrol. Selftitled

Altin Village & Mine - AVM047

The Dropout Patrol is the name of Jana Sotzko‘s solo project.
To perform on stage on her own was never as much fun for her as to write her own songs. A full band outfit should evolve - not necessarily an easy task and an intent cursed with failure several times before, especially if the songs are so close to the protagonist. The current line-up, consisting of Kristof Kuenssler (drums), Stefan Diessner (bass/guitar) and Ulrich Kalliske (bass/guitar), turned out to be the perfect one. Perfect indeed, if you just look at the long term connection between all 4 members, may it be their close friendship or just being on tour and playing shows together.. it just naturally evolved.
So now, after 10 years, the first selftitled Dropout Patrol album is about to be released, an album that‘s personal and so very close to the things that get life moving forward and things that get lost, change or just fail along the way. Sotzko observed precisely, found just the right words for things that repeat themselves but yet, stay unique. ..and in the end, „being observed“ becomes a major topic itself.
That‘s how the songs get interspersed with beautiful pictures which, at best, last longer than the actual runtime of this album: being chased by wolves, monkeys on rooftops, kisses in a hurry. It‘s these gorgeous moments that are created carefully and reduced.. when tempi change, a choir sets in & so much truth is mentioned in a passing that it almost hurts.
