Awesome album

I bought this on a whim after hearing a "Hostage" remix. I'm very glad I did! Klangstof is really something new and special. Even songs that I weren't originally my favorite, like "Amansworld" and "Telephone" I have come to love and appreciate. I know I will be listening to this album for a long time.

Wowzas!!!

This album is pure magic, I'm completely addicted to it, and is easily amongst the best albums I've ever heard in my life. I can't listen to any track on this album individually, I need to experience the album as the epic cohesive and beautifully flowing entity/journey that it is each and every time. I foresee world domination on the horizons for this extremely talented and unique sounding band and am thoroughly looking forward to seeing this modern day classic masterpiece debut album performed live in just two months from now at Coachella!!! If you like Radiohead, Alt-J, Sigur Ros, MGMT & early Coldplay, you're likely going to love this! :-)

Masterpiece.

This album is a masterpiece. Every song is unique and gives you a completely different feeling. The intro, "Doolhof", will not fail to give you goosebumps. The sky is the limit for Klangstof and I will listen to this album for years and years.

About Klangstof

The dreamy alt-indie of Amsterdam-based group Klangstof is the product of Norwegian singer/songwriter and producer Koen van de Wardt. His earliest inspiration was Radiohead's OK Computer, which he used to hone his instrument-playing skills. Once he started writing his own material, he bolstered his songcraft abilities with studies at Hedmark University College in Norway. After a stint as bassist with Dutch indie band Moss, van de Wardt committed himself to the Klangstof project in 2014. After releasing the single "Hostage" in 2016, he was signed with Mind of a Genius, home to Zhu and Gallant. The sweeping tune incorporated the icy soundscapes favored by Radiohead in their late-era works, while also infusing some of the ethereal atmospherics of Sigur Rós and funky flourishes of Alt-J into the mix. ~ Neil Z.
