Ekkehard Ehlers – Maria & Martha

from A Life Without Fear, a strange and rewarding album… Deathy, process-based, disorienting. An examination of “the blues” as a state of undoing. Memento Mori as eviscerated audio files.

While much of A Life proceeds via overt deconstruction of recognizeably ‘bluesy’ material, this sweet and sharp instrumental leans towards abstraction. Its guitar processing is reminiscent of Yannis Kyriakides & Andy Moor’s rembetika project – original post, Yannis & Andy live on Mudd Up!

  1. !
    Thanks for the tip, I did not know that Ekkehard Ehlers had a new release…sounds rather promising !

  2. I’d totally lost track of Ehlers after “Politik Braucht Keinen Feind.” Judging by this one track, this is some supreme loveliness.
