Ole Peter is back. It's been a while since his last release. In fact we've just been discussing that it seems like it was more of a recent thing but it's actually his first commercially available release this year. Oh, and it's not even a proper album... It's a stopgap 7 track mini-album jobber which was written while he was on sabbatical with a poorly knee! Nils Frahm is on board as pro knob twiddler and the artwork has been done by Machinefabriek. The music is lush as you'd expect. It's a totally stripped back simple affair with Peter playing guitar or piano (or both on some tracks) with him singing wistfully over them. No electronics or weirdness... Just simple songs played beautifully with a bit of heart. It's mainly piano based and the tunes are downbeat and moving as you'd expect. 'Pulling The Rain' is my favourite with its sombre sound and amazing piano-ness. His voice just trickles over the music lightly like rain pitter pattering off a car bonnet. Am being all poetic again! Lovely stuff...
