A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

Die Weiße Rose -Les Joyaux de la Princesse [#369]

on August 5, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 19.16.01 If you didn’t know, and I didn’t, the White Rose, or the Die Weiße Rose, were a German resistance movement against the Nazis during the second world war. Their activities are largely unmentioned in popular history which is a great shame as their story is one that fills me with ire and pity. There are even a number of European films that tell their story which are well worth a watch when you’re feeling at peace with the world.  [For more on the White Rose see – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Rose or see the film –  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Scholl_–_The_Final_Days].

Die Weiße Rose is also an album by old music project entrants Le Joyaux de la Princesse. You might remember them for their Croix de Bois and their collaboration with Blood Axis. This is by far their most poignant album to appear in the music project yet. Perhaps it is because I know the history of Die Weiße Rose and how the music makes a fitting artistic aural narrative to their story, or perhaps it’s because the true terror of a fascist nationalist government still remains in my lefty socialist mind.

I suggest a listen to this album in a book lined study with a strong drink and a packet of German cigarettes.
