Upitup Records (www.upitup.com) reawakes again to release this hidden gem of an album by Liverpool based multimedia artist Germanager aka Alex Germains.
"Smiles" is Upitup's free release cat number UPFREE66 and it's bloody entertaining!
Germains easily switches mood, tempos, turns the song around and magically mantains the pop and folk musicality while turning music upside down. The quality of the sounds and the catchy melodies have some sort of post/kraut-rock cum library music feel to them but, be aware, Germanager can bring you anywhere at anytime, without any advice.
This stuff is fresh, and highly original, we can't wait to give you more of his music soon.
Here are the release's sleeves note written by Christopher Taylor:
Yes he has a LinkdIn page. He has things to do. He gets out and about. But when he gets home he makes music. Sometimes for hours on end, sometimes a quick ten minutes before brekkie. That's just what he does. and all those everyday processes he plucks out whilst navigating round our modern life make their way into the music. gently dissected, digested and subverted. Being beautifully unsettled can be very soothing, especially in times such as these.
It's great he's sharing it with you.
