Klangwart – Sommer


Klangwart (Timo Reuber & Markus Detmer) create a journey through tangly reverb tones in an almost clinically paced new release. Sommer offers a lot of room for thought, an airy sensibility with deep bass lows following a more conceptual, almost soundtrack-like layout. The radio tuning style on Schnappschuss is tonal experimentation at its most fun. Both Moloch and Frühtau (w/Nufa) are thick and dense cyclical tracks, only revealing surface squeals, keeping a sense of slithery mystery. But what makes this record stand out is its continuous haunting drone — while this duo adds layers and layers of intricate and intimate sounds. The goings-on shift with low-rise beats in their collaboration with Philippe Petit on the late night chiller Hitzefrei. It’s a dead ringer in your ears.
