“Evelyn Blumenau and her fellow musicians prove once again that they have a feeling for the musically special, for the sound that entertains as well as challenges in the most beautiful way.”
The double LP is like a gift from the cloudy Viennese musical sky. Exclusively German-language songs that are situated between thoughtfulness and clarity. A collector's item at its best. 4.2.2022
If you like Element of Crime, you will also like the Viennese band Novi Sad.
More than three decades after their formation, the "grand masters of the intimate pop song" (Falter) are in top form!
An almost mysterious spirit surrounds this band, which does not allow itself to be deterred and tirelessly goes its own special way. They combine poetry - the lyrics are written either in German or English - with complex arrangements and diverse musical ideas, which they are always able to implement coherently. Whether indie folk, rock, soul and jazz sounds, art or pop song. With this fine vinyl edition, on two long-playing discs, this best of all so far not sufficiently appreciated bands is given an appropriate space.
