Boomkat Product Review:
This latest album from the German three-piece (their first for the chart-topping Domino imprint) comes to us amid much excitement and anticipation. "Hotel Morgen" is quite easily the most accessible of all the TRR albums to date - softly developing a formula that started off so beautifully on their masterpiece full-lengther "Veiculo". The opener "Dahlem" sets the agenda with the loose sweeping drum machine modulations of Ronald Lippok, the free Bassline evocations of dubmeister Stefan Schneider (aka Mapstation) and the dis-articulated electronic tinkerings of the gifted Robert Lippok. The result is a sub-discoid post-rock instrumental anthem in slow motion, taking its time with build up and with the gradual introduction of all sorts of elements you wouldn't quite know how to place or describe. "Hotel Morgen" takes the notion of acoustic electronica deep into the realms of subtle experimentation and soulful soundscaping - with Schneider's basslines often grounding these loose-limbed tracks into more traditional post-rockish structures. As such, it's an album of sheer delight, exposing subtle aspects of production and hidden depths with every repeated listen. Highly Recommended.
