Karaoke Kalk presents an album from Hamburg duo Forgotten Birds. Their music takes us along a track strewn with memories from good old times when girls braided flowers in their hair and swayed to tales sung of life and love's battles -- country folk. Jan Gazarra and Judy Willms' would-be nostalgia is as substantial as a flashback of first love on an autumn evening in a Finnish sauna: passionate but familiar, and somehow outlandishly hot. They recorded this record at Rocko Schamoni's cabin near the Baltic Sea with Jörg Follert (Wechsel Garland, Wunder) in seven days. Also making an appearance on the record is Marcin Öz (the bass-player for Whitest Boy Alive). Forgotten Birds splash the grey of everyday with psychedelic rainbow sunbeams. When they play, knees go soft. Hearts break and squaredance on sticky bar-tables. Their energetic live support includes Alexander Polzin, who also does electronic stuff, and Stephan Rath, who plays drums and things with the Goldene Zitronen, the enchanting Frenchwoman Hélène Gaudet gives the act that last, essential bit of magic.
