It moves, it sings. ...but does it swing? Anyway, it represents the soundtrack of my life, my musi- cal in uences: some San Francisco psychedelia, some London underground, some Berlin school (old & new). Krautrock from Cologne & New York minimalism. A shot of Detroit grit, a bit of Mos- cow dust, a splash of Paris charm? Who knows. Its about daily grind, the passing of time, the change of seasons & relations. Reality & ction & perception. Biography - back & forth.

First heard in around 2003/04 and it was journey to the regions I’ve never been before.It was like discovering something that was always there yet not that obvious and certain.To me an absolute masterpiece. hoob.son
This album is composed of an excellent mixture of the usual drone ambiance and uplift jazz loops making for superb tracks. It is almost as if each track tell a story in an "audio-film" fashion. Mamaxabras
