"Hamburg, Germany. Henning Wandhoffs second album. Follow up to Sunny Day. Chamberworks and band sessions. Data folk tunes meets Tropicalia. 'After the sunny day, the curious night.' The Mountaineer returns with a team of allies, to tell you about his sleep. The spooky drift between conscious and unconscious that digests the measures of the day, the relics and puzzle pieces of a life, and makes dreams from them. The stories a mind tells to itself, to make sense of what it is given. This sleep is endoscopic. It is the sleep that surrounds you, looking at you. Creating a space for you to inhabit. And so we listen in a room full of echoes. Homebound and enshrined in the house that this sleep has made for us. The secret whispers of his voice, sheltered in a harvest of guitar strings, shielded by the breath that vibrates through a melodica, hemmed by the brushes on a drum. The hushed confidences told by a shaker, by a few notes from a piano, by a loop."
