Leave it to the awesome LCL netlabel to turn me on to some more great new music. LCL recently started a series of releases entitled Carte Blanche that are releases that are not the fare that the label normally puts out. Moolen (Moritz Beller) is a young artist from Hamburg, Germany who started composing some pretty great post-rock/electronica after the breakup of his ska band.
Moolen cites The Notwist and other post-rock bands as a big influence. I tend to see a bit of early Caribou and Ulrich Schnauss as well. Art of Heartwork is moolen's first release and is a document on what has been going on in his life over the past few years. Very personal and interesting this release is worth a careful listen. Brokentopflow is my favorite track of the moment. Give it a listen and enjoy!
