Diamantener Oberhof

Diamantener Oberhof -Diamantener Oberhof (LP, 150 copies)

This German duo consists of the musicians behind Baldruin and Brannten Schnüre/Agnes Beil…  but their music is not just a simple sum of these two project… magical surrealism is one way to describe the sound of Diamantener Oberhof… subtle electronic sounds are mixed with snippets of accordion melodies… even though this is contemporary folk music it sounds very pure and authentic… like obscure lo-fi field recordings… bringing to mind some of the better Fonal recordings from the past (think Kemialliset Ystävät, Paavoharju and Islaja) or a more folklore minded Kaa Antilope… this is a sort of new primitivism and nothing less as in between archaic-electronic-ambient-folk-Dada-pop music…
