Rediscovering this music shared with his parents, united with the sounds of Autechre, Cristian Vogel and Jiri.Ceiver to Pink Floyd and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, brought back an understanding of why he wanted to write music in the first place.

"Oddments of the gamble"

Nils Frahm and his childhood friends, Frederic Gmeiner and Sepp Singwald, joined by Andrea Belfi and Peter Broderick, merge post-rock, jazz, modern classical in their 2nd full length under the Nonkeen banner. A continuation of the unique, analogue concoctions that formed the first album. Although it inevitably draws on a similar formula to the previous LP,pensive loops and melodies, sweeping arpeggios, post-rock jams and rolling jazz breaks, Oddments of the Gamble still stands alone as another statement from the trio despite originating from the same recording session.

"Light upon the lake"

Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek (ex-Smith Westerns) and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich (ex-Unknown Mortal Orchestra), to say that Whitney is more than the sum of its parts would be a criminal understatement. Their debut album marks the culmination of a short creative period for the band. Chicago's Whitney arrive as a fully formed gang of outsiders, their album rich in the musical history of the classic bands of the 60s and 70s.
