Felt by Nils Frahm

Piano tinkler Nils Frahm recorded his previous album the Bells in a big old cavernous church. With Felt he wanted to invite the listener right into his world as if they were sitting beside him at the ivories.It is so quiet that you can hear Frahm breathing and the noise of his fingers touching the piano. A deeply intimate listen.

The Nilster is back with a brand new studio new album on Erased Tapes and it's the difficult 3rd album! From the off I can tell it's a much richer album than previous albums as there's more than just piano on it. The opener with its Tubular Bellsy xylophone is really rather splendid. There's also a few samples and some field recordings (from the sounds of it) on here so there's plenty moreto feast your ears on. It's still an introverted listen and you're probably going to want to listen to this on your own as you'll get more out of it(Nils says that it should be listed to on headphones as that's how it was made). There's still the 'Hamlet' moments when you'll want to curl up in front of a log fire with a glass of wine and a huge cigar (don't burn yourself or get too pissed for that). It's essentially a maudlin sounding piano album though so if you like party music you're best looking elsewhere. The star of the album is the final track 'More' with its frenetic piano and xylophone combi where they sound like they're trying to outrace each other. In the background there's some really warm sounding bass which brightens the sound even more and it's by far the more uplifting piece on the album. It's a beautiful piece of music and worth the price of entry alone. I think this is his most realised work to date and one I think you'll definitely need to spend some time with.
