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.

Beautiful album, after catcking Kettenk on the tour earlier this year the album evoked some beautiful. hazy memories.

New York Blues is a masterpiece, play it loud!

My favourites are New York Blues and Everything. They remind me of that indescribable feeling I got the few times I saw DJ Dustin play. Actually, I love the whole EP so much I'm writing my first review for this.

I really like this album. Gate is a quiet opener while New York Blues is quite a contrast actually. The remaining tracks are a bit more mellow again. The last three tracks are my favourites. Brueder sounds very familiar to me. Is it a cover?

6 postings so far on this album. 1 addresses the music. Would love to hear if the music is any good. But no, as per usual a lot of waffle about where I can get this, how difficult it is to get a copy, if I want to swap for a shiny foil Brazil 1990 badge. People, the title of this section is Reviews not general tittle tattle. Let's all make an assumption that as we're posting on Discogs we know how to use the internet and have a pretty good idea of the key websites to look at when sourcing vinyl. Giegling posts seem to be worst for this kind of nonsense. Of course, I'm fully aware of the irony that this post is largely general tittle tattle, but having a review section can be really useful, but it can also be a dire experience when it becomes like reading Exchange and Mart.

I must say that this is an exceptional LP with "Just For a Second" and "Brueder" being on completely different level. Absolutely love their inner BOC side as a story defying narrative for this album.
