Album Review

Br??ckner, Michael – “Days In The Sun” – [Self -released]

humana   1/30/2009   A Library, CD

Electronic/ambient: Germany is a hotbed of electronics, and Br??ckner does the genre proud with this release. It???s a luxury to let one song track through to the next, as they are all of a piece, with 9 (???The Siren???) seeming the most distinct because of its jarring siren start. The long tracks (1 and 8) are never boring because of their ambience. Br??ckner???s wife adds her rich voice to 1 and 3 (which she sings in English and is very melodic), and his daughter adds her pretty voice to 7 (although she sings in a different language). Field recordings of crowd sounds are heard throughout, and book???s pages turning open 4, which is a cool journey (???In a Book???). Beats heard on 6, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, and there???s an oasis in 11 followed by a male-spoken, computer-manipulated poem. Fascinating. 9 is the most versatile track.
PGM: Everything tracks through.
