Album of the Day: RaaDie – “Vast Potential”


Artist:  RaaDie

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.

Your album personnel:  Lorenz Raab (trumpet, effects) and Christof Dienz (e-zither, effects).
