Brandt Brauer Frick - Echo (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-BEC 5543960
This is absolutely one of the great deals in our extensive offerings; don’t blink and miss it!

New, fifth release and back on track after their disappointing last one. Really good!
BB&F are a unique German trio who combine certain aspects of progressive/postrock bands like Tortoise, Jaga Jazzist with the rhythmic aspects of Nik Bartsch's Ronin, a Steve Reich/Philip Glass/Michael Nyman maximum minimalist sweep and 'die mensch machine' esthetic of Kraftwerk and lots of techno influence as well.
Lots and lots of polyrhythms here, baby, both electronic and non-electronic varities and lots of piano and keyboards.

“Daniel Brandt - Jan Brauer - Paul Frick: Brandt Brauer Frick. Three German sound architects who burst onto the Berlin stage in 2009, reinventing techno with acoustic instruments, on stage and on disc. Francophiles, their unique featuring on Echo is Catherine Ringer from cult band Les Rita Mitsouko on the title "Encore". Brandt Brauer Frick's influences range from minimal masters Steve Reich and Philip Glass to Ricardo Villalobos's techno. Their fifth album Echo is impeccably produced, a masterly burst of dynamism and precision, revolving around on club music, between serene minimalism and irresistible groove. Echo is Brandt Brauer Frick's "classic sound". The one that has contributed to the renaissance of classical music in contemporary pop.”

I liked this CD first time, right out the chute. Loved it the second, and so on. Why? It's melodic, it grooves with polyrhythmic delight, there are no vocals to distract, and for 4 bucks? Not that the money matters but I hope these guys see some satisfaction from such a great release.
