I had assumed Neon Golden was the last we would hear from The Notwist, but six years later here unannounced comes The Devil, You and Me. A nice surprise, and it's even more of a surprise that they have matched or even surpassed Neon Golden.

The Notwist create multi-layered, dense music, an intricate ensemble of beats, samples and live instruments. Their blend of acoustic and electronic sounds is remarkable, with glitches, beeps and stutters working alongside cello, piano and guitar without ever jarring. The Notwist are also big believers in melody and write proper songs, transcending the electronica tag often attached to them.

As for the set here, 'Good lies' is a strong opener, and 'Where in this world' is a nice contrast to follow, with pulsing bass and buzzing strings. The most immediate track is perhaps 'Boneless', which may have just become my favourite song of the year so far. The song builds from a simple guitar and shaker intro, adding pipes, harpsichord and finally a full string section. I have no idea what Markus Acher is singing about, but it's beautiful.

If `Neon Golden` was The Notwist in a state of evolution, leaving their hardcore punk roots behind in favour of post-rock flavoured indie-pop and electronica, `You, The Devil + Me` is the sound of a band who have found their, er, sound. `You, The Devil + Me` may lack Neon Golden's shock factor at least for those who have followed The Notwist's 20 year, albeit hardly prolific, recording life. It may also lack an anthem on the scale of that album's `Pilot', but `You, The Devil + Me` is a real grower, a layered and atmospheric slow-burner. Markus Archer's German-accented English is very much the signature of the band's sound, by no means a disadvantage but a singularity that makes them unmistakably The Notwist.

Post-rock is very much the principal theme, the electronics more decorative than propulsive, adding a layer of lushness to the autumnal, sometimes bleak mood. Indeed certain tracks ('On Planet Off') bear resemblance to the pastoral melancholy of Hood, while a little levity is afforded by the Postal Service-esque electro-acoutic balladry of `Gloomy Planets' and the title track. Elsewhere ('Good Lies') lyrical and melodic refrains build over swelling New Order guitars, or on the most overtly electronic tracks ('Where in the World') abrasive textures mingle with baroque yet pro-tooled orchestration.

Like Portishead's `Third` and Bon Iver's `For Emma, Forever Ago` - two other wintery records with UK springtime release dates - the arrival of `You, The Devil + Me` feels somewhat late (or early, depending on how you look at things), its world-weary ambience very much anachronistic. While this bleakness is impounded somewhat by the cover artwork, this is a not difficult record, there is nothing as funereal and oblique as their Anticon collaboration `13 + God`.

Format: Audio CD
The Notwist's last album, Neon Golden, was an album disillusioned with relationships, crafted mainly for long lonely nights (see song titles like "One Step Inside Doesn't Mean You Understand"). It was only on tracks like "One With The Freaks" and "Consequence", that the band opened their arms, revealing their fondness for simple, tender and touching rumination pieces. The Devil, You + Me, on the other hand, revels in that sound, from the moment "Good Lies" bursts out the door with pensively driving waves of sound that paint a picture of the band crouched over their instruments, pouring all their memories of loved ones, instinctual intimacy and traces of emotion into each heavenly movement.

But for all it's romantic gestures and love-centric gestures, The Devil, You + Me is still best personified by it's album cover: A lone man standing at the edge of a forest, ankle deep in a body of water teeming with birds and wildlife. The narrator of Neon Golden has made it out of the dank labyrinth of tracks like "Trashing Days" and "Neon Golden", only to emerge in an endless sea. Beauty thrives much more in this place, but there's no escaping the fact that he's still a long ways from home. It's that tension between inescapable sadness and beauty that may make The Devil, You + Me every bit as good as it's predecessor, despite it's lack of focus.

By lack of focus, I'm referring to way in which the sequencing of the album let's down it's powerful individual moments, of which there are many, might I add. Besides the aforementioned opening track, "Gloomy Planets" comes to mind; a wistful acoustic track, eventually fueled by Theremin harmonies and a gradually unfolding bridge that uses unidentifiable electronics and noise to gently propel it forward.
