Album: Vast Potential
Label: Traumton Records
Style: Sunday morning solemn
Favorite Track: “Unterwasserfische”
Music from: Vienna, Austria
What I like about it: I like the intimacy between the two musicians, and how they sound always in sync even when they’re twirling away on opposite sides of the dance floor. I like how immaculately tuneful each of these pieces are, and how they have a catchy quality without really any dedication to patterns of repetition. I like how this music is a Summer day, sometimes undiluted sunshine and other times like a starry night where the only sound are crickets and a soft, comforting breeze rattling the leaves in the trees. This is music for daydreaming, and I like spending a lazy Saturday afternoon just kicking back and floating away in imagery, cats snoring nearby, and a feeling that peace has settled into my life. This is the music for that kind of day. It’s also one of my favorite albums of 2019.
