Praise for Newspeak:
"Goedecke [..] emerges as a fierce talent on Newspeak who bridges the divide between nostalgic anthemic rock and contemporary indie-rock charm." - MIKE MINEO, Obscure Sound, 16th April 2018
"Max Goedecke’s ‘She’s a Good Damn Girl’ is a well-developed, eclectic composition." - NOAH ZUCKER, ROCKTHEPIGEON, 16th May 2018
"Well, I can honestly say I’ve never heard an album like Max Goedecke’s latest album Newspeak. It has the same haunting euphoric effect as Post Punk bands such as Echo and the Bunny Men with the soaring Classic Rock riffs of the iconic 80’s acts such as Tom Petty, and Neil Young. Yet, the styling is nothing but contemporary. There’s almost infinite diversity written into each of the 10 tracks from his debut album, each of the tracks flows with its own brand of veracity, from punchy Garage Rock to rhythmically Blues Rock." - AMELIA VANDERGAST, A&R Factory, 27th April 2018
"‘Slowly to Sink’ the second track is perhaps my favourite here at the moment and really shows off Max’s distinctive pleasantly raspy voice which here takes on a Jack White-esque lilt. There’s plenty of swirling energy in the song that takes on a real early eighties indie rock vibe and won’t let you go until its teeth are fully sunk in. It’s the kind of song you hear and know that if the artist runs with this then bigger things are just around the corner." - MARK DIGG, The Rock Pit, 2nd June 2018
""Slowly To Sink” was a highlight which also happens to be one of the more single-worthy songs in the batch. The songs builds with intensity and has a number of notable crescendos. [...] Overall, this is a great debut. If you are a fan of some of the aforementioned genres you should like this. (3.8/5)" - JAMIE FUNK, DIVIDE AND CONQUER MUSIC, 16th July 2018
"With a track this strong [Alessia Di Castellabate], one that could be an indie hit on the right playlist somewhere, Goedecke knows to runs away with it; and somehow combining elements of rock, blues, folk, country and pop into one track." - KATE STEVENS, Indie Rock Cafe, 10th July 2018
Newspeak is my debut LP and was internationally released by Ditto Music on the 25th of March 2018. My focus was not only on realizing the sound visions I had of a futuristic indie rock sound, but also of writing lyrics which reflect the fast-paced time we are living in: the world becomes transparent, we doubt long established certainties and are on a permanent search for self-fulfillment - all in a bubble of an artificial media world that surrounds us by day and night.
