"Melody Express is the name of Pascal Schäfer's debut EP on Karaoke Kalk. Holding it in your hands for the first time, it might come across as a little old-fashioned. The sleeve design, colouring and the title itself all bring to mind the aesthetics of early jazz singles. But don't be misled by this first impression, as these are only playful and maybe also a little faddist details. In fact, Melody Express turns out to be largely what the name already tells us: a series of melodies, harmonies, combined with curious beats and sounds. a musical train journey -- sometimes slow, then again faster, passing through six stations. The train never stops too long, nor does it carry any overload. On the contrary, the arrangements as well as the chords gain in charm by their simplicity while taking us through the most different moods on this short ride -- from the much cited melancholy to simply feeling like going to a café with old friends, sharing a huge piece of cake and talking about past experiences. And when you've finally reached the end of 'szczescie', it makes you want to start all over again because it's been so much fun. Even if this is all quite everyday stuff."
