NEW BRANNTEN. Please note this is the second pressing of 250 numbered copies, in regular printed sleeve with insert.
"Durch unser zugedecktes Tal completes the Seasons Cycle of Brannten Schnüre. For three consecutive years (2014-2016), the duo released Aprilnacht (Spring), Sommer im Pfirsichhain (Summer) and Geträumt hab ich vom Martinszug (Autumn). Afterwards, they released two highly acclaimed and now out-of-print albums with Muschelsammlung and Erinnerungen an Gesichter and now Winter’s finally here with Durch unser zugedecktes Tal.
"The album evokes lyrically and sonically how people experience winter: from the joy of the first falling snow to the weariness of darkness and cold, from well-tried rituals to drive winter out to the relief of thawing and blooming snowdrops. Durch unser zugedecktes Tal is also a record about patience and hope. For the first time, Brannten Schnüre’s aesthetics are reminiscent of Christian beliefs; the idea of living a life pleasing to God is present in the final words cited on the record, a poem by German writer Hans Schiebelhuth that rounds up Durch unser zugedecktes Tal and leaves its listener behind in a solemn mood." - Holger Adam
