Seelenluft’s THE RISE AND FALL OF SILVERCITY-BOB starts with the beguiling “Magic,” a sweeping landscape of horns and harps, and you know you’re in for a lovely cinematic trip from there on in. The sinuous “Such a Man,” for instance, is like a dating service for the funky. Seelenluft is like a magpie of different cultures and instruments: the automotive recitation on “Auracar” swirls beneath some Indian-inspired tablas, while “Mexican Hat” is a percussive showdown in a dusty spaghetti Western. “Walking ‘Round the Biotope” has a quick, bouncy feel, even as the bright instruments overhead introduce a more contemplative note. “The Terrible Sound of Silence” borders on sleazy listening, but with enough rhythmic skank to keep it head and shoulders above the din. A dense, lovely debut.
