Boomkat Product Review:
'Unfolding Luxury Beyond the City of Dreams' is the first of two contrasting new Janek Schaefer LPs for Hamburg's Dekorder. It follows his much acclaimed tribute to J.G. Ballard, 'Lay-By Lullaby' (listed in Pitchfork's Top 10 under-the-radar releases) with a softer, more tactile collection of signature ambient textures and slowly shifting space spread around seven sublime pieces united by an elegiac solemnity. They range from tributes to friends and family who've passed on, thru sweeping orchestral moments woven with field recordings, to one gorgeous number crafted from recordings made from a helium balloon and meshed with a piano loop robbed from The Carpenters, plus his theme tune for a site specific theatre production, and recordings made in Grand Central Station. Beautiful material.
