Erdbeertörtchen - Wald

2010-09-12 06:35:34 UTC
It’s difficult to detach instrumental music from its prejudices: Immediately you think of mystified hippies who play their easy listening endlessly and talentlessly. Or you might think of choleric men who once gained their glory in hard rock combos. Disregarding these negative connotations, you might think of epic vastness and melancholically overflowing streams of distorted and undistorted tunes. Or think of something yourself for a deliciously prepared salad of metaphors. erdbeertörtchen don’t have a singer because they don’t wish to become the next counterfeit of long-known grandseigneurs of the post-rock era. They are rather influenced and inspired by a different stile of guitar music: One that is mostly accompanied by singing and which prefers putting the accent on good melodies instead of incessantly raising the musical tension which always results in the same predictable explosions. It’s quite simple: erdbeertörtchen write pop songs. Never trivial or boring, sometimes swift, sometimes relaxed. A good melody is just what one needs. And you’ll often be tempted to sing along – if only there were lyrics. But you might think of some yourself, such as ‘Since my TV is broken, I’ve been missing nature films’. In spring 2002 erdbeertörtchen’s first 7’’ was published by their own label “Köff-Köff-Schallplatten”. An amazing long-play album ("wald") followed in 2003 in cooperation with the cologne based Label “Tumbleweed Records”. In May 2007 their second album "Humbug, Watson." was released. ( Erdbeertörtchen play very good indie tunes without voice. Some people miss it, some people love it the instrumental way. Give it a go and decide yourself. ) [ MySpace ] | [ Last.Fm ] Artist - Erdbeertörtchen Album - Wald Release Date - 2003 Genre - Instrumental, Indie Pop, Post-Rock Tracklist 01 - Erdbeertörtchen - Sauerampfer 1:58 02 - Erdbeertörtchen - Pflaumenjahr 4:15 03 - Erdbeertörtchen - Manchmal Am Fenster 4:21 04 - Erdbeertörtchen - Schlafkonto 3:22 05 - Erdbeertörtchen - Marzipan 3:25 06 - Erdbeertörtchen - Mein Armer, Armer Khobz 3:51 07 - Erdbeertörtchen - Krokel 3:40 08 - Erdbeertörtchen - Passiepen 4:44 09 - Erdbeertörtchen - Magenfahrplan 4:28 10 - Erdbeertörtchen - Borowski Wie Zilinski 4:53 11 - Erdbeertörtchen - Volldampf Voraus 3:13 12 - Erdbeertörtchen - Cruebel 4:17 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Erdbeertörtchen - Wald -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Great Earthquake | The Sea And The Cake | Broken Social Scene | The Stay Lows | Fin Fang Foom --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
