Kammerflimmer Kollektief - Wildling
This gently unfolding, boldly meditative recording by Thomas Weber, Heike Aumuller, and Johannes Frisch manages to harness a quiet power in service of something far much more insinuating than most music that purports to rock. The wildling is a wild creature that has been tamed, transplanted to a cultivated spot from its own habitat. Perhaps this is from whence the familiarity arises: we are all wild at heart, and the band writes to that core being in all of us. The album’s name implies feral ferocity dormant within, the constant struggle to be free from the shackles that bind us. Wildling is the eighth release from the kollektief and is wildly ecclectic with al kind influences (krautrock, psychedelica and jazz and even some Tindersticks).
