SUPER GEIL! It’s music that puts me in an immortal trance and is feeding my inner desire for something deep. High class. A trip and meditation what works perfect like a personal and private soundtrack (on the walkman).
I see an image like driving on the German Autobahn during the sunset in Wintertime! WOW!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Asquith (Lobster Theremin)
Incredible long-player and so happy to see Stenny really stretching his legs and entering different sonic realms whilst instilling each track with his own signature. Simply incredible.
