Artist: Klaus Marten
Label: Self-released, 2014
It is rather difficult to define this Brooklalbum as music in the way we define music in usual. This is more like a kind of sound experimentation yet injecting some influences in music - in a common term. Although Klaus told that this album could be described as shoegaze-leaning, I would still calling it as sonic experimentation. From all 16 songs, you would find how noise created and experimented through sonic wavy experiment. However, you could still find some guitar-based song - some with noise "bothering" it.
In any certain point, I have to agree to describe this album as shoegaze or dream-gaze influenced. 'Around You' and 'One Waits There For You' are more than strong to prove it. This is a drone kinda thing that oftentimes laden in reverb. To stand out as a art-craft, this might be interesting in some ways. However, we have to agree to label it as an extreme one to be friendly. Anyway, that is how art - in this term, music, whatever it is like - built and appreciated.
