KURZMANN/STANGL Schnee (Erstwhile)

I never heard of these musicians before listening to this: mea maxima culpa! A delicate, inside-looking record mostly made of acoustic guitar shadows and laptop treatments. It reminded yours truly about the best episodes of a young O1Rourke (circa "Disengage") but with a touch of nightmarish aura giving this music a well recognizable spice. Dare I say "Feldmanesque"? Spacey but grey-brained, a character of its own: a lovely, lovely release.
