Barbarossa Vinyl, CD & tapes by Barbarossa at Norman Records

Show page list »


On Barbarossa's Lier a heady blend of pop and contemporary soul are paired alongside a lush framework of drifting, synthetic bass and glistening synths. Precise drum work comes from Joel Wästberg and everything is shrouded in a comforting amount of warmth and layered, floating orchestration. 


Barbarossa, aka James Mathé, was once a fully fledged acoustic folkster, working with José González and The Fence Collective. But Imager sees him step fully into a different world, that of electronica. He sounds very at home there (this is a very accomplished record), but the pure songwriting sensibility of his earlier work is still audible. On Memphis Industries.
