Erdbeertörtchen - Wald

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 Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
