An 8-song 10” mini-album by this German-based singer-songwriter. Before you run screaming from the latter characterisation, this is engaging, wordy stuff, with a free-flowing delivery over backing that incorporates jazzy and ambient twists and turns. In the same ballpark as Brigid Mae Power or Peter Broderick, who Mr. Body shared a compilation with.

9/10 Jamie Staff review, 13 December 2017

Jung Body wrote and recorded the 8 songs on this album -- all concerning the people in his life that he loved and lost -- during a 4-year period of constant turmoil, and sometime catharsis; one of the by-products of the making of his remarkably beautiful record. Plain-spoken, frank yet tender; these songs are moving tributes to much-loved human beings. The instrumentation is arranged loosely, with muted brass, woodwind and soft percussion occasionally punctuating relaxed, jazzy strums of guitar -- always engaging, and a perfect counterfoil to Jung’s wordy yet easy delivery.

The flow of this record is something else, with lovely melodies offsetting the sad, melancholy feelings the subject matter evokes; it's a perfectly bittersweet package overflowing with heartfelt emotion. The honest, direct and genuinely touching nature of the material prevents it straying into excessive / overwrought territory. We’re in the same ballpark here as -- for example -- Brigid Mae Power, for sure; I’m also hearing echoes of Jose Gonzalez, particularly in his nimble finger-picking. There are many highlights on this LP, but the gorgeous watery guitar on ‘RF’ and the melodic, harmonic interplays on ‘ASLDTLJL’ are but two moments on a majestic and affecting record. I'm confident you'll find many more.
