oh what a night...
The Legendary Lightness (CH)
Arrangements rich in feeling, a playful carpet of sound to stand on, and rhythms from deep inside will get to you and leave you thouroghly impressed.
«Since the demand for our LP was quite substantial and because initially we we're able to offer only a small edition, we came back with a second of the same work, which features a new cover. You can get it at our concerts or at your local record store. Hey, just treat yourself - you're worth it!»  wrote the 'three beards' of The Legendary Lightness; looking like the ZZ Top of Nu-Folk-Indie-Pop.
Try your luck at Wudi's Jamarico (hangin' in, hangin' in!) or at Veit of RecRec. There, who knows, you might just strike gold with this great disc and its hot album cover art. Otherwise it's straight to our island of the lightness of being for a rare copy of said LP, titled «Ancient Greek Breakfast Club». It was named after a club in Justinac (F) - rhymes beautifully with Armanac - where the village elders engaged in readings of the writings of Greek mythology, with a little Shakespeare thrown in.
«To be or not to be» or «Do be do be doo», whichever you prefer, but like Odysseus always fantasizing about returning to his Penelope, our three drummers are great seekers and dreamers. But it's their music; music not dominated but enhanced by their melodious drum sound, that'll get you dreaming, dreamers - and get you dreaming big.
You'll hear it: Arrangements rich in feeling, a playful carpet of sound to stand on, and rhythms from deep inside will get to you and leave you thouroghly impressed. TLL addict Philip Amrein has this to say about «Ancient Greek Breakfast Club»: «If you quantitively dubbed the near mythological «Smile» of The Beach Boys and «Music from the Big Pink» by The Band, you'd get a sonic blueprint of what their debut album's all about. The three drummers, Daniel Hobi (Gabardine), Dominik Huber (Schnitzer) and Dominic Oppliger (John Sars) exemplify a musical power that pushes all local competition aside and flush against the grating of the Kanzleiturnhalle. A perfect LP - go and do yourself a favour and once you crawl out of bed on Saturday, get it at Wudi's Jamarico (hangin' in, hangin' in!) or at Veit's RecRec. And then let the A side run till you hear the B side.»
«Promising» and «unpretentious» are other opinions coming from the media, helping to push them up the mighty musical Olymp. Right on point. And watch the video that accompanies «Airplane», it'll fly straight to where music is already located inside you.
Trust and get on their flying carpet of sound, spiriting you away - never to return. (At least, keep dreaming...).
