Nice piannery CD on Sonic Pieces, 2 edition. NOT IN BOOK SLEEVE!!.
Anyone into pianos should check out the Nils Frahm CD called Wintermusik on Sonicpieces (the last thing they did was a split CD by Konntinent which was ace). This is packaged in a lush little thick book style sleeve with a wee nipple inside for the CD to rest its weary shiny fat back on. I have to say if all CD's were packaged like this then they wouldn't be in the state they're in now cos it's a lovely thing. I can't keep my eyes off it... It's all textured like a pair of old mans trousers. hand numbered as well. All boxes are officially ticked... But what's the music like? Well, in a word it's gorgeous neo classical wares. It's just lush sounding classical pieces of piano based music which is as beautiful as it is maudlin. It's very emotive with definite nods to folks like Max Richter, Peter Broderick etc.... some of it reminds me of a more sombre Hauschka without the bottletops and keys. It's a really lovely way to spend 30 minutes of your life! The music was originally intended as a Christmas present for friends and family but it's obviously been discovered by someone with nice ears and you should be thanking them greatly. Well nice! Note only the Erased Tapes is available now which is packaged in a regular slim card sleeve.
8/10 Alex 29th June 2009Piano music is a genre I enjoy when in the right mood. Listening to this lovely three song album by Nils Frahm makes me wish I was in the right mood every day of the week! The album remind me of the more subtle piano pieces of Torley Wong.
From the tranquil simplicity of the opening track, to the 17 minute relaxation epic, and finally ending with an emotionally poignant finale, this album is great for anyon who enjoys sitting back, cranking up the volume and listening to some seriously soothing music.
Hand numbered ltd editions are always juicy as well.
