Ulrich Schnauss A Strangely Isolated Place
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: City Centre Offices
Ulrich Schnauss finds virtue in prettiness and early-'90s dream pop. With track titles like "Gone Forever" and "On My Own," this follow-up to his widely revered Far Away Trains Passing By is presumably intended to tug at the heart strings rather than the feet, and kindle particular emotional responses-specifically a sense of loss, longing and loneliness. Yet, like many of the artists to whom the Berlin-based producer can be justly compared (Slowdive, Chapterhouse, Bang Bang Machine), Schnauss creates pleasant music that is curiously blank and weirdly unevocative. A Strangely Isolated Place is a palimpsest on which to impose your own personal circumstance.
