Boomkat Product Review:
"Two track titles, separated by a slash; and two independent realms, recorded moments in time, separate sonic worlds: the two concerts b. fleischmann recorded for his new LP don’t need an album title to tie them together. They complement each other and interlock quite smoothly and organically anyway, lifting you up when the other is pulling you down and vice versa. The first track “For M (a tribute to mark linkous)”, was recorded in May 2010 at Klangboden Mödling: Austrian Angst might still be no option for a Weltanschauung, but there is a certain unease at work in the beginning, pushing down the strings, the cautious guitar loops – which is hardly surprising: the entire piece is a musical obituary for the man who started Sparklehorse and shot himself only a few weeks prior to this very concert. While fleischmann takes care of electronics, guitar and omnichord, as he usually does, he was joined on stage by Matthias Frey (violin, snare), Martin Siewert (guitar, lap-steel, bass, electronics), and Alexandr Vatagin (bass, electronics, cello). Although he has contributed vocals now and then in the past, our man from Vienna remains silent for the second track as well, focusing on ambience alone: “mikro_kosmos”, a solo piece, was recorded in June 2010 at “festival irritationen II”.
