Dominik Eulberg Heimische Gefilde
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Traum
Greeting, and colorful woodpecker. That's the gist of Heimische Gefilde's opening, which revisits the "wildlife techno" that underscored Eulberg's debut, Flora & Fauna. This time, the part-time park ranger introduces a new bird or insect between each track of glittering minimal techno. From the machine comes music on par with (but sexier than) the best of Lindstrøm and The MFA. "Afraid of Seeing Stars?" sets things in motion, followed by bait-and-switch banger "Der Buchdrucker" and eventually a track in which the bass, snare, hi-hat, and vocals are literally for the birds. Remarkably Eulberg remains so connected with the natural world, and in sharing it with listeners, that he reveals some of the most exotic sounds of all.
