Brueder does it for me. Absolutely in love with this song. It just brings me to tears. So many Boards of Canada influences. Album is perfect in every way. A true experience to listen to. Great great pressing. 10/10

"Gate" is just such a huge track.
Turns on the chill switch everytime aswell. Perfect as an introduction to the whole album.
Not to mention the other Kettenkarussell classics on this one.

Brueder looks like hommage to mid 90-s sound of Funki Porcini. Drum loop and blue mood.

New York Blues, Everything & Breuder. If anyone can listen to these tracks without feeling anything they should donate their ears or brain to someone else who will

'For rainy days' is a great description for the album, it captures truly melancholic and cathartic emotions throughout. Every track has its own individual cleverness, although I would say that 'Just For a Second', 'Brueder' and 'Everything' are my favourites. Kettenkarussell once again exceeds expectations.

A gorgeous, synthetic/organic fusion of house, field recordings, Boards of Canada-like meditative vibes - but with a distinct Kettenkarussell sound to it. "Gate" starts things off an a melancholic, ambient note with traces of bliss slipping through the cracks. "New York Blues", the album's highlight, picks them up and runs with them, as it builds layer upon layer of euphoria, a gorgeous loop about half-way through the house track making you long for it to never stop. "Everything" lives up to its title, as literally every conceivable emotion will run through your head as you listen to its otherworldly motifs. "Just for a Second", with its breakbeat/house rhythm brings to mind Theo Parrish or Tornado Wallace. A little levity is brought with "Your Hands" and the beautiful, ultra-chill closer "Brueder".
Succinct, sophisticated, both highly original and a tribute to house/chill music of yore, Kettenkarussell have really outdone themselves with "Insecurity Guard".
PS The vinyl pressing is FANTASTIC - if in the U.S., order from Amoeba website while it lasts.

New York Blues is a masterpiece, play it loud!
