Engineer: Irene Trudel

After two endearing albums of sweet-voiced tunes, Brooklyn-based Clare and the Reasons uprooted to Berlin to inspire their next release. Inspiration came in the form of their 1968 Schwalbe moped model KR-51s, which Clare, Olivier and Bob used to motor throughout the city they called, "a blurred filmstrip of cobblestones, trees, and graffiti." Clare and the Reasons then went to the German village of Haldern-Rees to record the album, "KR-51." The resulting music is a lush pastiche of Olivier's Paris conservatory training with pop overtones, Bob's secret mastery of Yngwie Malmsteen’s guitar solos, Clare's vocal upbringing in the Muldaur family tinted by her love of Lotte Lenya and Kate Bush, and the ancient/modern culture of Berlin.  (Irene, WFMU 2012.)
