This is the third full-length release on Karaoke Kalk from Cologne-based Jörg Follert, aka Wechsel Garland. Easy finds Follert lending his voice in song to his dreamy electroacoustic instrumentations. There have been elements of both singing and song in his work before but not as distinctly arranged and not as forcefully set in scene. Approaches to more song-oriented tracks have been inherent from his Wunder project and Follert has been following his idea to travel in sound with various sketches that become more and more concrete. Creating delicate interplays between songs and instrumentals, these songs take their cue from minimal music and cool jazz, letting their elements communicate in a non-dogmatic manner. Various guests support the eclectic range of rhythms and sound details, including guest singers Yvonne Cornelius (aka Niobe) and Tusia Beridze, while Argentinan artist Gustavo Cerati extends the musical arc with his guitar, basslines and some additional sounds. Jörg Follert's second step is to take care that between the multitude of ideas, both songwriting- and sound-wise there still remains some gentle air to breathe. Touches of bossa nova, reggae, jazz pop and hints of Caetano Veloso make various lightweight appearances. Easy is the aural expression of a long, lazy afternoon.
