Music for 2018 | Part III

Summer moved on. Here's some new music for the fall.

Sleepwalking
by Jonathan Bree
* * * * *
All the way from New Zealand, producer and musician Jonathan Bree brings us something that critics are placing between Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy) and Stephen Merrit (The Magnetic Fields). Perfect references, if you ask me!
Anspieltipp: ▶︎ You're so cool


Physical
by Gabe Gurnsey
* * * * *
Gabe Gurnsey, the other half of Factory Floor, released a solo album, bringing over the dancefloor to wherever you're listening to it.
Anspieltipp: ▶︎ Ultra Clear Sound


Double Negative
by Low
* * * * *
Low (already seen live ealier this year) are back again with a new album in their signature melancholy style. This time they experimented with more layers of distortion and drone, adding a different sound to their catalogue this way.
Anspieltipp: ▶︎ Dancing and blood

Travel Diary: Meteora

I'm still going through the pictures of my trips from last year. These are from Meteora, an area in central Greece comprised of several monasteries built precipitously on top of peculiar rock formations.

Age of Empires 1836


The Savage State, 1834

The Arcadian or Pastoral State, 1834

The Consummation of Empire, 1836

Destruction, 1836

Desolation, 1836

"The Course of Empire is a series of five paintings created by English-born American painter Thomas Cole in the years 1833–36. It is notable in part for reflecting popular American sentiments of the times, when many saw pastoralism as the ideal phase of human civilization, fearing that empire would lead to gluttony and inevitable decay."

Oh, Vienna...

Impressions from my trip last summer to the monumental city of Vienna.
