[LBN017] Old Splendifolia – “Utterly Heartbreaking” (EP) (January 19, 2013)

[LBN017] Old Splendifolia – “Utterly Heartbreaking”
During live sessions in the summer house, the woods of Brandenburg and the homes of friendly musicians delicate pieces evolved, capturing random environmental noises and exceptional interaction of the artists. The chamber music-ish pieces flow moment to moment painting scenes with tones.
“The Song Poems seek their fortune through poetic views of the world, leap to the Earth’s perishable inhabitants’ defense, for whom the consistent rational explanations for a world so compelling in its richness, in its confusion, in its complexities impregnable from comprehension give little satisfaction.
So, let’s cast light on the many small details, sense-nourishing observations, confusion, the fear that tears me, which overwhelmed you as well, and on the comfort that She granted you, so you now could come to my aid. Enter with the ears and not only with the latter, into the micro-extracts from rich litera- and orature, elocuted by the inner desire to keep the amazement and the breath of life, to light the inner warmth, which beards the global one, with filigree vehemence. Yes.”

StadtRevue – “Utterly Heartbreaking vereint Blumms elegisches Gitarrenspiel mit allerlei anderen akustischen Instrumenten, Field Recordings und natürlich Plewas Gesang. Die Songs entfalten durch ihre Aufnahmeästhetik und ihren teils improvisierten Charakter einen sehr intimen, persönlichen Charme”. / Music Won’t Save You - “… un conciso spaccato delle potenzialità di un duo al tempo stesso delicato e intenso.”/ NetMusic Life - “C’è una montagna di sentimento e spiritualitá dentro ad “Utterly Heartbreaking”, piccolo capolavoro di inizio anno firmato Jana Plewa e F.S.Blumm.”
