Dr. Mindflip I love this album, it's unlike anything I have heard before. The hypnotic, drifting atmosphere always seems on the verge of sweeping you away, but each track keeps you grounded with subtle, almost-danceable rhythmic motifs. The whispers of Monsters' emotionally-ambiguous narrator draw your deeper down into a dreamlike state as the album progresses. It's not for everyone, but an open-minded, meditative listening session is sure to bring you on profoundly strange, gentle, and sinister journey. Favorite track: Lifted.

about

This album was initially released in 2007 on the netlabel Thinner. The tracks “Home” and “Winter's Tale” come from the 2007 EP “Examples of a Medusa” released on the Thinner-Sublabel Autoplate. The track “Cynosure” was originally composed for this album.

Listening to the songs on the album creates a feeling one gets during sleep, as our dreams reappraise the day's experiences. Immediately awakened from a dream, every part of it can be recalled and each nuance can be experienced and seen with the inner eye as a phantasmagoric slideshow of continuous images. Slightly disoriented, we ask ourselves: "was this real or was it a dream?" As the day progress and our memories degrade with the passage of time, details of the dream fade away and only vague fragments remain like a collection of disjointed snapshots.

about

Philipp Weigl Germany

"Weigl lays his whispered, English-language vocals over lush, dreamlike compositions that drip with yearning melancholy. The results sound something like William Orbit and the Beloved snuggling under the duvet on a particularly dreary winter's morning. Sometimes, it seems, the best things do still come for free." ... more
