This is the second full-length record from Lüneburg, Germany's Springintgut (Andreas Otto). Recorded partly in his house in the middle of the forest and partly in Amsterdam, Park And Ride is heavily influenced by these two very different environments. "You may take the title literally," says Otto. "'Park' represents the more melancholic chunk of tracks on the album, which I recorded at home in the forest ... The more upbeat tracks would fall into the 'Ride' category. I remember riding my bike in Amsterdam during the summer. Life was good, happy and light." Park And Ride combines the high craftsmanship of electronic music with spontaneous outbreaks. With Andreas playing the cello and bass or his friend Max Fey playing guitar, this release lovingly irritates the listener with high-pitched noises from bended circuitry, surprises from the chopped-up vocals of Japanese singer Kazumi, and the long, crackling ambiences and field recordings on "Everything In Focus." Jan St. Werner from Mouse On Mars sums it up perfectly: "I feel inherited in a very gentle way. What a record!"
