weathertunesNoticed a seductive, beguiling fragrance in the air? That’s Weathertunes’s new album release. A “parfum” which conquers your senses, and spreads an instant well-being feeling for sure. Tempting lounge grooves, spiced with heartwarming positivity, flood the room with sunlight. The Lemongrassmusic brothers Roland and Daniel Voss wrote and performed everything on the album. No guest appearances this time, which impressively underlines the qualities of the project. Their passion for the French lifestyle and culture had a formative influence on the album’s spirit. With sweet melancholy, songs like “Dimanche Matin” or “Anis Nous Explique” tell about the irresistible scent of the Cote d`Azur. The selected technical and compositional pathway is set with class and in regard to the songs mood, turning “Parfum” into a lovely companion along life’s way. A feel-good album in its best sense. While listening, even the sun seems to shine a little brighter.

Mindful of the fact that understanding and embracing different cultures is paramount in human evolution, the 12 tracks on „Thoughtful Machines“ are a liberation of these ideals which take the listener on an adventure across the world – from the calming influences of the East to the formulaic repetitions of the West resting on the African soul from which this music stems. Placid Larry indulges us in a contemporary, worldly and optimistic easy listening collection of musical stories – full of thoughts, ideas and creativity…

Anemine is an Electronic/Ambient project by Alexander Hardt and Roman Weingardt from Cologne. During a long-standing collaboration, Anemine has developed its very own sound aesthetic. Most of the sounds, the two guys are using, arise out of their own made samples, self-developed software and field recordings. Elements of improvisation and collage pour equally into the process of sound composing. Since its foundation in 2003, collaborations with other artist have been part of the projects work. Anemine has realized two stage programs with the spokeswoman Susanne Rump in the period since 2008. Live electronics, soundscapes and staged reading merge into an unique expression. Their last collaboration was inspired by the novel “Oceano Mare” by Alessandro Baricco, resulting in the album “MeeresWeiten”. The album name is a German play on words, it literally means “SeaWidths”. The dreamlike images, that Alessandro Baricco draws in his novel, are reflected on the album in 11 scenes. Packed in a soundtrack-influenced aesthetic, piano and bayan harmonies flow together. Song structures are traversed by fine-tuned sounds and a subtle veil of noises. Thereby, a soundscape took shape, that appears with a mysterious, colourful and intoxicating expression. Alexander Hardt works as a sound designer, produces radio plays and radio broadcasts. Roman Weingardt works as a sound designer, produces radio programs and develops audio software. “MeeresWeiten” is their first release for “Lemongrassmusic“.
