Karger Traum is Blake Lusk and Taylor McKenzie from Oklahoma City. The project began when Blake invited Taylor to improvise vocals over his solo project, Holy Siege. Taylor’s style of improvising lyrics in German fit well with Blake’s minimal, throbbing productions and the pair decided to forge ahead as Karger Traum. Despite wearing the obvious Einstürzende Neubauten, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, and Suicide influences proudly on their sleeve they have managed to create a sound that has as much forward momentum as it does reverence for the past. After releasing ‘Alles Auf Einmal‘ on Blake’s label, Tape Gun Records, they recorded ‘Such A Dream‘ for DKA Records.
