The Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Luger – Swastika Sweetheart

26. Luger – Swastika Sweetheart.mp3

With a name like Luger and a track name like that combines lust and button-pressing, you’re bound to raise a few eyebrows. And in keeping with the Germanic tone, Luger delivers some of the rockingest Krautrock in ages, borrowing rhythmic ideas from Neu!’s speedier bits, while adding an incredible amount of blazing organ tones. They then flip the Krautrock script, bringing a hard-charging guitar into the mix.

It’s exhilirating stuff, comparable to half the cuts on Primal Scream’s brutal XTRMNTR album or Death in Vegas’ more amped-up moments.
