CD Feature/ Sinebag: "Pres de la lisiere"

img  Tobias

We suggest the following for optimal listening pleasure: Take a nice blanket, unfold it in the middle of your room, lie down on it and open up the basket full of fruits, fresh bread, cheese and red whine that you just packed. Then put on your headphones and start “Pres de la lisiere”.

The title of the album means “Close to the skirt of the woods” and that’s indeed where you’re going. In fact, it’s so close to the real thing and occasionaly even better, that you will want to stay at home for the next few weeks. Sinebag, the project of sound artist Alexander Schubert takes you into a world full of sweetly buzzing bees, friendly chirping birds, quietly humming insects and natural harmony. Field recordings from parcs in his hometown Leipzig, from Bremen, Lübeck as well as Spain are combined with the indoor noises from his appartment and make for a drifting backdrop to dreamy momens of folk guitars, shakers and piano melodies. Gently you move from watching the clouds on the green grass to weightlessly floating through a pieceful garden, before enjoying a cozy breakfast at Alexander’s. This is the same place Hermann Hesse’s “Knulp” took its listeners to – a place long lost in time, with happily clattering mill wheels and the lively babbling of the clear stream leading your way.

Just as much care has gone into the fold-out digipack, made up of smooth cardboard and carefully covered with atmospheric pictures. Take it with you in your basket, as you embark on your journey, which will leave you warm and comfortable for more than an hour. And you won’t even have to take an umbrella.
