Shame Over – Murena Murena (2016)

Some albums ask for a laidback listening. Some you can listen to casually, put them in cars or in bars, making people fall in love for the length of one song, making them ask “Wow who’s that?”… Some other albums may seem hermetic when you first taste them, because they need to be listened to in one sitting, while doing nothing else. Then, you are able to hear the distant but rapidly approaching siren’s call to dive into them, to drown into them.

Murena Murena’s albums, though, manage to be extremely satisfying in whichever kind of listening you give them. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. From different networks, in different cities and universes, I watched people’s faces light up with that very special glow of getting surprised and transported by music. I’ve watched people fall in love with songs while listening to Murena Murena, the same way I fell in love with Ghoaster Coaster, some time ago. And it’s a boundless love adventure. You can always dig deeper into the Murena Murena sound and always find hidden gems you’ve overlooked before. Just like Ghoaster Coaster, Shame Over is willing to embark the journey of a long-term relationship with you.

Year in Review – 2015 in Munich again

Here we are, at the end of 2015, a completely incredible year. 2015 is the year where the Munich Underground Scene actually became completely tangible to me.

I had all the time in the world to completely dive into the networks that I love, to take in the energy that these people can give you, to go with the Munich Flow… There was so, so, so much great music in 2015, you have no idea…

So here you have it, a small and humble and completely subjective recap (in alphabetical order) of all the releases that meant a lot to me, and mentions of some great things to come in 2016… Enjoy!
