Sol Invictus

Hard to characterize, something between spoken word, choirs and medieval songs.

The entire album can be played on YouTube and bought from various locations.


Yung Hurn

Upon hearing an extraordinary song, I’d listen in on the artist. Usually it’s a one off and other songs vary on how much I like them. Not so Yung Hurn – I’m under the impression that nearly each and every song by him is in itself very enjoyable and special. Despite his songs being exclusively about taking drugs and sex he still seems to be in good shape. May he be able to maintain balance, creativity, energy.

OK KID – Kaffee Warm Trilogie Live

The youtube clip is claimed to be a live recording. The video though is clearly cut from multiple concerts. Has the sound part really been recorded in one piece and live in front of the public? If it has, then it’s even more impressing – the dramaturgy of the song is quite complex, but even so, the band is playing it with the precision of an atomic clock. Their drummer – Raffael Kühle – certainly figures among the best drummers I know of. The stuff he’s doing is unexpected, unheard of (at least to me), his drumming is not ticking streadily in the background, but it’s popping in and out, ever changing.
