f.s. blumm & nils frahm - Music For Lovers : Music Versus Time / Music For Wobbling : Music Versus Gravity
*Deluxe 2LP edition in handmade cardboard/textile packaging, embossed and numbered, including printed innersleeve & download code - limited to 350 copies only. Includes two albums in one package - the brand new "Music for wobbling Music versus gravity" and the previous collaboration "Music for lovers Music versus time" Habitual quiet men Nils Frahm and Frank Schultge Blumm team up for an album of ambient folk and spectral, post-everything chamber-jazz, recorded with bags of reverb and with the investigative but plainspeaking, inviting air of an early 80s ECM side, or even of Jim O'Rourke's recent The Visitor. What starts as a very mellow, meditative set gradually becomes more eventful and complex, climaxing for us with the majestic 'Movements & Meetings', which combines a bluesy lyricism with pontillistic rhythm and mischievous stereo-splitting. Beyond the individual technical skill of the two principals, it's in the effortlessness of their interplay that the magic really lies; this duo, unlike so many collaborations, is more than the sum of its parts. The Germans' natural empathy also means the music avoids sounding either cloyingly folksy or jarringly abstract; it's neither sentimental (a common weakness in so much "contemporary classical" recording) nor mathematical. In this sense, it really is something that floats free, "music versus gravity" if you like - and at its best, it wins that battle hands-down.
