unschärfe / shimmer

Split hexyclical sides sift through subtle sounds of seasonal shifts, from hot to cool and cold to warm.

GHOSTANDTHESONG conjures a saturated psych-lo-funk/neo-surrealist-punk sunshower, the perfect cooldown for a squelchy joyride through woodland creeks canopied in summer sunset. Before nightfall, find a spot to lie back and let crisp autumn riffs and ritualistic rhythms of the rolling river cleanse your heavy heart and hazy mind. With the cold creeping closer, come back to consciousness and follow the siren to shelter.

Avoid the frost on the trek to refuge and wait out the winter with CHRIS REHM. Whispering winds of ambient-ghost-folk drown out all cognizance, but the thaw comes in a shimmering daze. Awaken to sunlight's fingers lifting your lids and softly strumming the icicles in your ears. Rise up and return to the river to replenish that spring spirit of roving revitalization. Get solar, take a quick dip and cycle on.

UNSCHÄRFE: eine romantische feier der kaputtheit. eskapismus mit darauffolgendem realitätsverlust. die katze aß das antidepressiva des onkels, nachdem ich sie ihm geschenkt hatte, weil er sich so alleine fühlte und starb. sind wir nun entkommen? ist noch adrenalin übrig? gibt es nicht genug leute die etwas sauberes machen wollen? recorded 2010 in different rooms and places around freiburg and berlin. this is the beginning of neo-surrealistic punk!

SHIMMER: written and recorded in 2009-2010, through a number of different dorm rooms, bedrooms, and bike rides in new orleans. with one heavily-effected improvised guitar & vocals take as an atmospheric constant throughout the side, i've intermittently placed snapshot ideas in song form on religion, display & perception, and two songs about one girl.
