Florian Von Ameln: Rvvr (eilean 19) (Eilean Rec., 2016)December 4, 2016 at 10:54 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
The jazzy drums and very-nearly-worn-through loops of the opening track hooked me immediately. Then it sounds like hundreds of birds are attacking a string quartet. Then there’s thick, melodic tones and scraggly guitars. Very abstract, but at the same time very directly emotional. Von Ameln has such a unique way of putting together sounds which are wayward and wavy and loose, but yet still make absolute sense. Also, every single track on this album sounds totally different. Such a huge range covered here. Kind of astonished that this guy isn’t more well known. Unbelievably good. Listen at Bandcamp.
