>>Short Press Release<<
VERT is back. And it’s as if his last album for sonig just came out. The eleven songs on THE DAYS WITHIN don’t have much to do with ragtime, but they have plenty to do with songwriting. A kind of songwriting that is so typical of VERT, who has meanwhile relocated to Berlin, that it can hardly be mistaken for anyone else’s. The tracks on THE DAYS WITHIN all have such a well-defined profile that it is difficult to describe them in terms of one specific style. Butler doesn’t like to use the same idea twice. His signature as a songwriter and producer is more recognizable by atmosphere than by harmonies and hooks. VERT’s music is a mix of melancholy, sophisticated arrangement, densely woven sounds, delicate irony, and many surprises.
