EXCLUSIVE! FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE! (FMP 0400) http://www.fmp-label.de/freemusicproduction/labelscatalog/fmp0400.html . DIGITALLY REMASTERED. Two guitars. Two meerkats. One superlative record. An alternately strange and sweet series of stringed performances. Under-heard and under-heralded, Erdmännchen deserves a much wider listenership. Check it out and hear for yourself!
"Using no overdubs or electronic manipulation, these two artists have created some impressive music. The sound is almost orchestral in scope, quite dense, and never less than fascinating. At various times Reichel sounds like he’s playing harpsichord, synthesizer, koto and harp, as well as standard guitar. And even though both are playing electric guitars, the music has the kind of warmth one associates with the acoustic guitar."--Cadence

I love these guys! I am so happy that they also like to perform in Moscow and we have the opportunity to hear them live))
This is a many-sided album, not only free-jazz, not only jazzcore, but also modern jazz, free improvisation and experimental music. So expressive, energetic, and musical album!
It is important to add that this Web-release contains 4 bonus tracks (solo improvisations of all musicians & 'Round About Lapa') that makes the album to be more than just the best album of the year )) Olga Kivius
