Short glimpses of 2015

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | 3 Comments

Thomas Köner’s album will stay a little bit longer, as our album of January 2015. It is simply unspeakable. For more information, go to the website of Denovali Records. According to the Boxing Day radio show, Fredrik posted here, two new Eno albums might be in the pipeline of 2015. Tigran Hamasyan’s overwhelming debut on ECM (probably a double-cd) with Arve, Jan and Eivind might see the light of day, just before Robert Wyatt’s „Moon in June“ is finding its perfect month. And in February, I’ll  review the forthcoming, disturbing, beautifully broken Kammerflimmer Kollektief album DESAROI on Staubgold. In rather short sentences, full of diversions, illogical thinking and wrong u-turns. Christian Wallumrod is about to release a haunting solo piano cd on Hubro. Robert Wyatt’s retirement from music is a sad affair. Another February release called MOUNT THE AIR, by chamber-folk-innovators The Unthanks, will (of course, not only) be a delight for those looking for subtle influences of Robert’s intricate melodicism. The sisters once covered his songs, and after a passage of private life, they are back with a new, even somehow jazzy take on their old English roots. Great news, too (for the happy few): the Go-Betweens are opening their archives, they have always been „best company“ for me. And besides all, I’m keen on listening to the new Father John Misty album, for rather strange reasons and because one of his latest songs stopped me in the tracks. The cover is bullshit kitsch. But he sang an overwhelming song in the last minutes of the last episode of TRUE DETECTIVE. So, 2015 might become a damned interesting year. More songs about buildings and food. Love comes to town. Daniel Lanois to Frankfurt. And „Dubnobasswithmyheadman“ to Cologne, time traveling with Karl Hyde.

    more on Manafonistas (lezen) (-:

  2. Uwe Meilchen:

    Several retailers are already listing a second with music culled from the archives by Eberhard Weber for release in February 2015 – as the titel „Encore“ suggest it’ll accompany the already familiar „Resume“ CD…

    …and I would also welcome a perhaps already planned live CD (DVD?) of the two concerts that will be staged in Stuttgart to celebrate Eberhard Weber’s 75th birthday (on January 23rd and 24th 2015)…

  3. Michael Engelbrecht:

    The „Resume“ might be followed by an „Encore“ – i love „Resume“! Thanks.
