Still bashing away at the vanguard of contemporary music, here Czukay is accompanied by Nico-esque diva U-She. The New Millennium is a mixed bag of shape-shifting techno, lent a theatricality by U-She’s semi-improvised interventions. Best, however, are more darkly ambient pieces like “Metropolis” and “La Secondaire”. With remorseless rhythmical heartbeats and Islamic samples, it’s an inadvertently perfect soundtrack for watching the events around Baghdad. The best 65-year-old working in electronica today.
