  • Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3 weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te regelen, maar het blijft lastig...

    OmschrijvingAfter almost two years of collective isolation and tossing around on your own, you could easily forget the creative power that can be unleashed when you do things together. The Hamburg producer and multi-instrumentalist FINALLY GEORGE reminds us with his new album "Icy Skies": the list of artistic accomplices is long, and the result is a gift to all art rock fans. George`s debut "Life Is A Killer" made the prog and art rock scene collectively sit up and take notice in 2018. Eclipsed magazine selected the album among the top 5 of the hundred best albums of the year. Reviewers used comparables from Pink Floyd to Steven Wilson, bombast and emotionality were praised as well as the sophisticated songwriting and excellent production. Even then, FINALLY GEORGE gathered an impressive group of collaborators, above all Styx drummer Todd Sucherman, who is not only one of the best of his craft, but also one of the few drummers who - as Styx frontman Lawrence Gowan once described it - have "deep musical knowledge and sensitivity". Sucherman is also back on "Icy Skies". He describes his contribution to the album, which is quieter and has more melancholy than its predecessor: "George`s material is harmoniously and rhythmically very rich, a dream for every drummer," he says, "Every song is like its own little film, to say it with my drummer colleague Dave Mattacks." With music this good, your only job is not to break it. " FINALLY GEORGE corrects this very modest assessment: "Todd doesn`t just play the tracks as a session musician might do. He gives an incredible amount of input, suggests things and thinks about things. Without him," Icy Skies "would be not what it is. " The same can be said for the other FINALLY GEORGE collaborators: Violonist Anne de Wolff (BAP, Calexico), trumpeter Ingolf Burkhardt (NDR Big Band), keyboardists Detlef Bösche and Mathias Pogoda (Inga Rumpf) and the much-booked background singer Anja Bublitz. "It`s been extremely rewarding to work with all of these amazing musicians," says George. "And I think you can hear this concentrated creative energy on the album." The mix by Frank Reinke and the mastering (Ludwig Maier / GKG) ensure that "Icy Skies" is also an acoustic experience, and the artwork comes from a creative person whose art has often left traces in art rock and prog world: Hajo Müller, who also became famous as the cover artist of Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson and Blackfield.
