Third of June
Ferdinand (feat. Urzula Amen)
Die Taube auf dem Dach
From One Cell (feat. Urzula Amen)
When I'm Drunk (CD-only)
Double LP version.
's self-titled new album was born on the beaches of the Baltic Sea, during a five-week retreat from reality in the winter of 2012. The contrast of traditional and modern, of colorful yet sinister, of classical but still unheard compositions is the main focus of this album. These controversies are reflected in the album cover as well: bright waves surrounded by dark skies, a beautiful and enchanting cherry blossom placed upon two black, headless pigeons, bringing together elements that are not intended to be combined. These pigeons are the main theme of the track "Die Taube auf dem Dach," a track that brings across the hope and dream of freedom. The third track "Ferdinand (feat.
)" delivers driving basses, Spanish guitar sounds and beautiful vocals by singer Urzula Amen that emerge into multi-layered harmonies, accompanied by enchanting synthesizer sounds. She also appears on "From One Cell," which comes across as a light and sizzling -- yet soulful -- interpretation of modern house. "Die Mächtigen" is an anger-filled statement about the world's political and even daily life, for the sake of profit. The track "Cherry Bud" is set amidst what seems like a comfortable tea-time scene -- a beautiful piano piece is playing, providing a perfect reference for the later track "Cherry Blossom." Another example of Stimming's combination of classical elements very modern production methods is heard on the track "Dylan's Theme," where strings and bass seem to go hand-in-hand. As soon as the beautiful strings (played by
) reach their climax, the artist mercilessly destroys them. The album reaches a deep and sinister point with the track "Uberblick" -- the artist's own voice creeps under your skin and the steady beat is interrupted by short kettledrum-rolls, making the track suspenseful and exciting. To round it all off, "Feeding Seagulls" is a reference to his first track, showing off a simple synthesizer harmony combined with a complex melody and bringing you back to the very beginning.
