Boomkat Product Review:
This new full-length from Barbara Morgenstern is one of those records that comes along every rare once in a while and creates a kind of melancholic affinity that drags you into all sorts of directions and places. The production here is by Pole, To Rococo Rot and Thomas Fehlman - producing some of the most surprising and heartfelt work from all 3 - coupled with Barbara's breaking, unidentifiable voice and composition. Opening track 'Tag Und Nacht', for example, starts of with slow, pop resonances that are etched on your memory upon first listen - with Pole's production adding highly unusual, almost unnerving touches - the sounds of insects circling the microphone, adding a squinted tinge to the crackling backing track. It gets stranger and catchier from here on. Stunning.
