had to look up TORSCHLUSSPANIK as it's one of those wacky German words that sort of translates to Fear of Time Running out...
That's funny and makes sense there was a silly sounding german word for that

I've been looking for the right word for the anxiety that one experiences when there is only a few seconds left on your MFA code to type in

I think TORSCHLUSSPANIK works

Well the band's name is Fernweh is also Germany for Wanderlust and clearly a popular band\artist name as there are four different artists on Bandcamp alone with that moniker

back to Torschlusspanik

"Torschlusspanik is a combination of three German words, and literally translated means "gate-shut-panic." Apparently the term dates back to the Middle Ages in reference to the panic medieval peasants might have experienced as they rushed to make it back inside the city gates before they closed at nightfall. Being left outside the protective walls would have meant being exposed to the cold, wild animals and perhaps robbers.

These days though, the definition of Torschlusspanik is more metaphorical, and is far more likely to be triggered by the effects of a mid-life crisis, or the tick-tock of a biological clock."

I also see other albums called Torschlusspanik

Last night for well kinda obvious reasons the chorus of The Message popped into my head...  Turns it was released 40 years ago today

anyways this is very relative today

Don't push me
'Cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my head
Ah-huh-huh-huh
It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under

The Feeling - Loss. Hope.  Love.

latest album from a UK group that got one shot at breaking the US market which didn't pan out... which makes a bit sad as they write solid pop rock songs...

His Lordship - All Cranked Up E.P

H/T Chrissie Hynde/The Pretenders twitter...

James Walbourne who is currently on  lead guitar for The Pretenders has a new group and so far it's indeed Maximum Rock N' Roll

This EP isn't on Bandcamp, but an intriguing covers album done in one take is

https://hislordship1.bandcamp.com/releases

also James has quite an interesting resume beyond The Pretenders...

Half of the group The Rail, also played with The Pernice Brothers, Son Volt, Ray Davies solo band and the Pogues among others.

Amazon had this for $10 free shipping with Prime. Tough to resist. Last dance with Mary Jane originally came out on this as a new track to hook people to buy this…what a track!

Amazon has some amazing deals…I recently got the Wildflowers 7 LP box for $80.

It’s just hard to stay on top of it.

While listening to The Routes twangy take on Kraftwerk, I suddenly remembered the Senor Coconut album El Baile Alemán ("The German Dance" in Spanish) which is covers done in Latin American styles.

And from the Wikipedia article I like this footnote about why one of the tracks on the original release was removed

[Florian Schneider] said they really liked the work I did, which was quite an honour, of course, but they didn’t like my version of “Radioactivity” and they would really like not to see that released. I tried to convince them that it would be a good idea to release it actually and they got a bit stiff on that.

More Senor Coconut

This one is Señor Coconut And His Orchestra – Around The World With Señor Coconut And His Orchestra

Now working with live musicians this one reworks a variety of songs in various Latin American styles.

This arrangement of Prince's Kiss is outstanding

Spanish version even better
