REVIEW, Tom Tom Magazine:
"From the opening reverbed guitar on the albums opening track, “Greenpoint,” a cosmic alarm rings out into the world. The drums pulse like a heartbeat undergoing a panic attack—in a good way. The mad genius behind the project is Maximilian Markowsky, a Berlin resident, who decided to experiment with musicians who’d never played together before and see what sort of concoctions might occur. Like mixing already unstable chemicals, the result on Leonard Logan, combing the drumming talents of Lia Braswell and Kristin Mueller, in two different cities: New York and Berlin. The result is a fierce bravura of Flaming Lips psychosis and impossible not to dance to interstellar rhythms. Teamgeist is one of those odd experiments that proves that strange bedfellows need not be acquainted first to still speak the same language.
Listen to this: if you believe that aliens speak to us through music and demand that you shake your ass."
