Boomkat Product Review:
Surprisingly good full-length excusrion from Paul Kalkbrenner for the Bpitch label, deploying a beautifully executed arrangement of Cologne-bound 4/4 that manages to steer clear of the cheese that seems to be so dominant in that part of the world right now. “Since 77” is the album’s finest moment, a contemplative Detroit-bound burner that wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Lawrence’s excellent full-lengther “The Absence of Blight”. The three interludes : Page One, Two and Three, offer up contemplative accordion baladeering a la Herbert’s ‘Café De Flore’ and offer stylistic structure for the album. “Marbles” is a downtempo late night groover, while “The Crouch” delivers the album’s obligatory “Shaffel” winner. Nice work from Kalkbrenner and Bpitch. Check.
