Düsseldorf transplant via New York, this is TG Mauss' (Torsten Mauss) second solo record, having previously recorded as one half of the synth-pop electro duo Tonetraeger together with Volker Bertelmann (Music A.M., Hauschka). Mauss' debut, Mechanical Eye was a melodious boat trip, an acoustic calling card, and as was promised, the captain has not retired: the fantastic voyage continues. Gravity Will Keep Us All Together is not only the title of his second album, but a statement: whereas modern physicists still discuss whether gravity is all but a form of energy, Mauss acts in the spirit of visionary inventor Nikola Tesla and explores the universal force of music with his intuition as a guide. His adventurous experiments with percussion and guitar strings lead to the rediscovery of the common cultural denominator: pop. Drifting away from the constrictive worlds of minimal music towards his own multicolored cosmology, Mauss surprises with a cocktail of playful beat and Brit-pop melodies, stomping '80s disco and hippiesque country. A talented parodist, he even catches the dark mood of industrial without losing emotional warmth and joie de vivre. TG Mauss gives his music the space to develop and blossom, infecting listeners with a heartfelt happiness.
