This is the second full-length album by Berlin-based Frank Schültge Blumm and Ellinor Blixt aka Bobby And Blumm for Morr sister-label, Sound Of A Handshake. Since the release of their debut Everybody Loves... (MORR 081CD), the duo has matured and refined their sound, creating more space in their music while still possessing an incredibly soft intimacy. Above it all floats the enchanting voice of Ellinor Blixt, a voice which sounds right up close and so far away at the same time. Evoking a state of sweet melancholy, it describes a moment of beauty and sadness at the same time. A Little Big is music of restrained urgency, of silent greatness, of magical realism. In every corner there is an understated detail, a rustling, a silky whisper, a careful finger-picking. The wonderful guitar skills of Blumm have depth and are, at the same time, light, effortless and elegant -- the perfect counterpart to Ellinor's fragile singing. Harmonic duets and dialogues are intertwined in close arrangements -- a flutter of the eyelashes, a chime, a soft beat, a muted keyboard, A Little Big is the sound of significant silence and elegant pauses. The more you listen to this album, the more beautiful it becomes, and the deeper its roots.
