Barbara Morgenstern & Robert Lippok

ambient electracoustica // german electronica

For those of you who like Aqualung, but think that Matt Hales is neither sufficiently electronic nor sufficiently German, you might consider Tesri, the quirky little album from which the below track is taken. There are definitely shades of Mr Hales in the sparse rhythms and doleful keyboards, though the similarity shouldn’t be overstated. The joy of Aqualung comes from its rich acoustic texture, whereas Morgenstern & Lippok aren’t afraid to throw the odd electronic buzz or pop at you. Thankfully, though, they’re not the sort of melody-ruining buzzes and pops that you so often find in ‘cutting edge’ electronica. On the contrary, ‘Gammelpop’ is a pleasing blend of idyllic twitters and big hugs, a tranquil break from the grimy, industrial sound of the rest of the album.
Controlled and considered, an impressive sound.

    feedburner mangles the url to the mp3. it replaces the & in the url with & (which in turn lets ipodder fail).
    I think it’s easiest if you replace the & in the url to the mp3 with %26
    (google for url-encoding if you want to know more)
    Anyway, thx for doing this, your podcast is great.
