The second album from Berlin's Modeselektor & Apparat

We’ve sung the praises of Moderat before, and posted their brilliant video for “Bad Kingdom” that came out last month. The first single off their upcoming II album, “Bad Kingdom” hinted at a very solid sophomore effort from the Berlin natives. Well now that album, II, can be heard in its entirety over at NPR. […]
