ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Itamar Ziegler has seized upon a harmonic, textural and atmospheric language that leaves a deep impression, uprooting expectations and bypassing typical responses. Threading together elements of electronica, folk, rock, and soundscape, while much of their music has a darkish cast, its emotional, internal life ranges from quirky
and experimental to profound and vulnerable. Fronted with Itamar's vocals, there is a shape-shifting feeling inherent in the way the songs move, inhale and exhale, leaving a transformative residue with those who let it in. Make way for a striking, powerful mix of dark introspection, passion and conviction casting shadows and awakening a sweet, soft spot in the mind. Beautifully compelling and
intoxicating." (CD BABY)

" 'the birds, the sky, the trees...and all that shit' is a beautiul, melodic, differentiated collection of songs in which the acoustic sound of a gitar is a recurrent element. Imagine a strange mix of Nick Drake, Belle and Sebastian, and Tom Waits. Itamar Ziegler's distingished personal soundscape will stay with you". (Nanouk Leopold/Film Maker)

"2 LPs from a Brooklyn-based composer and producer who has soundtrack work for Israeli short films, BBC documentaries and even 'Pimp My Ride' on the CV. From the self-titled largely instrumental LP of 2002 it is easy to see how his works would fit into this context. Short pieces ploughing various furrows. 'Jimi Stack Shakshooka Shak', an antiquated mechanical toy whirring into life to start with, 'Slum' following with desertrockrinkydinknu-Bhangrese. Waitsian spasm occurs on 'Filth', watery Beefheartian brood on 'Night Ride' while 'Arabic Surf Dance' adequately advertises it's thrilling, spiraling self. There's a Sex Clark Five style skewed acuteness and cuteness throughout, with touches of the Magic Band's dexterity. The more recent LP 'The Birds...' features more recognizable songs with more vox, and is more folkish, less hectic. The opening untitled track is the gem, an Asian sub-continental post-rock spoken word epic. A good accompaniment to showcase the range of Ziegler's talent." (Skif/Vanity Project/UK)

the grind and the grandeur
a double-edged paean of irritation and wonderment. i find the balance of roughness and beauty perfectly uplifting.

Threading together elements of electronica, folk, rock, and soundscape, while much of their music has a darkish cast, its emotional, internal life ranges from quirky and experimental to profound and vulnerable.

the mix and the melody
From the opening track one's hooked into the ethereal mixture that provides social commentary with the prevailing addiction of modern life, that compelling need to be entertained. Hooking an infectious melody with sweet invective Zeiglar succeeds in grabbing the attention and invokes that mysterious interaction between source and object creating a musical oddysey, an adventure into sound where there continually lurks the potential for transformation.
