Bumann und Sohn
Berlin-based singer/songwriter Anna Erhard has given her second solo album the name CAMPSITE. The title track, however, is not a longingly plucked guitar song for the campfire. On the contrary, "Campsite" has a cool beat around which it clangs and rings. The guitars create all sorts of noise, Anna Erhard recites a series of campsite memories in a voice that sounds like how you feel when woken up by the morning sun after a great but short night in the heating tent.
In the '90s, alternative acts like Beck and Luscious Jackson played this kind of deadpan slacker pop. Now Anna Erhard brings back this sound - and some sounds more: The album CAMPSITE - like the previous album produced by Pola Roy, former drummer of Wir Sind Helden - has a tremendous wealth of styles, melodies and stories.
