Excellent new concept double album by Janek Schaefer on CrÃ³nica. His best to date. 12 commissioned pieces that range from dreamy to truly hairraising. ‘Asleep at the weel…’ is absolutely fabulous. An installation consisting of ghost cars & in-car soundtracks. The 20 minute piece on the album documents the dangers of overconsumption & overuse of natural resources from inside the biggest culprit of the last century: the rise & fall of the car. It’s like praying for survival inside an erupted vocano. It’s really quite spellbinding. One of my favourite albums of the year 2012.
