CD Reviews


»[Man in the Maroon] has been quite a ride. I started making this record more than a year ago, at the beginning of the pandemic. Last April there was a feeling we all shared that the world was on pause. We didn't know how long that was going to be. A lot of nerves, but also, a lot of experiments. Did you make any experiments? Mine was this album. [...] I started recording Man in the Maroon over a year ago. I try to avoid hyperbole, but putting out a record in 2021 is like floating in a one person life raft in the middle of the ocean shouting through fog. Which is to say, I need all the friends I can get. If you like what you're hearing, please consider sharing Maroon on your socials and maybe tell your friends and family. I don't know about you but when someone I know and respect tells me to check out a piece of music they enjoy, I take it a lot more seriously than something that shows up on an algorithm. Also, this being an album, I know it's different than asking you to listen to a single song. Take your time.« (Korby Lenker)


»Immer wider wirdi gfragt - warum üsi Musig nid am Radio louft [...] Mini Musig syg z exotisch, i singe bärndütsch u tue jodle u das söu für SWISS MUSIC z exotisch sy??? [...] Wir sind zu exotisch für SWISS MUSIC [...] Man möchte die Fachleute da gerne mal kennen lernen. Was mag sie wohl treiben? Emännt der schnöde Mammon? Ein Schelm wer solches denkt!« (Doppelbock)
