Music A.M. Unwound From The Woods
- Words: Steve Marchese
- Label: Quatermass
Even the most vivid dreams are often only silent films. However, had we the ability to score our dreams, Germany‘s Music A.M. would be the perfect accompaniment. With a gentle combination of minimal guitar, stuttering electronic percussion, and a swirling digital mist of various electronics, the trio creates the perfect backdrop for singer Luke Sutherland‘s distinctively breathy storytelling. With a calculated mix of high-art affectation and everyman seduction, Sutherland (not unlike Jeff Buckley or Sam Prekop) has the ability to use his voice with uncommon instrumentation. The result is much like a dream itself-both strangely alienating and eerily familiar.
