Barbara Morgenstern 13.05.06
One of my favourite electronic albums of last year was Tesri, a collaboration between Barbara Morgenstern and Robert Lippok from To Rococo Rot. I only knew Barbara Morgenstern from remixes she did for other people but that album was reason enough to go and see her play live at Petrol as a opener for DAAU.
She’s doing a promotion tour for her new album The Grass is always Greener. While she’s best known for makin’ electronic music her new album is largely made up of acoustic songs, a kind of up tempo piano ballads. I could say that what comes close is someone like An Pierlé, only this time in German. Her songs work well live because of the enthusiasm with which she delivers her songs but on the album they are a bit flat, more like sketches. But still, there are a couple of great acoustic/electronic tracks on it that make it still worth while.
Please Wake Me For Meals + Sommer
Grass is always Greener
Die Japanische Schranke + Quality Time
