Boomkat Product Review:
For his debut LP for Morr, Frank Schültge aka F.S. Blumm presents a multitude of lovely popsongs and atmospheric soundscapes designed and constructed with an array of acoustic instrumentation, found sounds and electronic overlays. Mondkuchen seems like a colourful picture transformed into music, telling little stories in many layers. Its tension covers a wide field from crushed acoustic sound experiments to perfect pop tunes. Crafted mainly out of acoustic instruments like piano, kalimba, accordion, vibraphone and guitars, the result is so deeply mysterious and original that the usual system of description by comparison simply does not work here. It's hard to believe that F.S. Blumm is a one-man-project. It shows the many skills of a multi-instrumentalist, somehow managing to sound like a perfectly tuned-in orchestra, homogenous and well balanced. Blumm works with melodious sound, with deep buried memories and inner-visions that are governed by a universal and archetypal rule of simplicity. Experimental ideas communicate with accessible and friendly musical constructs with an almost overwhelming sense of ease...you´ll get lost in the land of mr Blumm until you realise that the record has run out. But hey, don´t worry, you just can start it again. Highly Recommended.
