Let’s travel back to the good old times, think 2008, the year of nicely brewed wine and pretty music done by Wouter Jaspers. It’s perhaps only one side of a story, as it was released as part of a split with Jon Eriksen; but hey, some sides just deserve a little more attention then the others. So with fondness in my eyes i feel it’s great to rehear his work ‘Conglomoraat’ and even more to share it with a new generation who might not have heard the prettiness when it had came out and about.
Think of it as the captured essence of beauty, something of a sound level that has no bad skin, no holes, pimples or disturbed fractions; this music is like a baby’s butt with lots of powder. It’s so soft, smooth, warm and pretty that it seemingly creates every kind of situation into a safe heaven. With music like this playing through the ears, nothing bad can happen, porcelain skin won’t break & all is good.
Wouter Jaspers also brought in a nice shimmering track named ‘Erosie’, this is in contrast to ‘Conglomoraat’ a more shy sounding work. It kindly brews it’s way like a polite breathing calmness, gently and respectfully bending its neck with a bow as it passes by. It does this in a rhythmic way, something that is easy to follow with your own heartbeat and inhale and exhale lung capabilities. The music is pretty, a bit in the distance , yet close like a nice friend…
