Editors’ Notes

Barbara Morgenstern’s albums are often filed under “electronic” but the German recording artist is basically a 21st-century singer/songwriter using the technology at hand. Since she emerged in the late ‘90s, her work has moved from electronic pop to a highly individual style that possesses elements of indie rock, electronica, and cabaret. The core of her sound is her lovely voice and her acoustic piano, but the tracks are fleshed out at various points with help from drummer Arne Ghosh, guitarist Sven Janetzko, cellist Julia Kent, strings, choir, and subtle electronics. The first track, “Driving My Car,” is a case in point. It begins with Morgenstern’s piano and voice, but slide guitar, electronic keyboard, and drums join in, adding dramatic heft to the music. “Deine Geschichte” starts off with a techno throb only to befriend dissonant piano, chugging strings, and Morgenstern’s delicious singing. Two instrumentals intrigue: “Für Luise” has multi-tracked piano lines that hint at classical music, while “Hustelfuchs” features cello and a variety of “out” string tones that weave a mysterious web. “Camouflage,” a duet with the great British musician Robert Wyatt, is another standout. BM is one of 2008’s best releases.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful voice. Don't speak a lick of German, but like it anyway.

I highly recommend the song "I Miss You '03", if you can find it. The album is kinda scattered, but her voice makes up for it. Foreign equals good, now eat your vegetables.

Another Dance Diva Turning Folksy

This is a continuation of the trend of dance music divas turning to rustic folk (think Beth Gibbons, Goldfrapp, and Dot Allison) that proves to be a pretty divisive move. There are no anthems on this record, which is precisely what Ms. Mogenstern has previously done so well. Still, there's plenty to like about this record, especially if you have favorable feelings about similar attempts, especially Dot's. Personally I'm for it, though I doubt I'll listen to this more than four or five more times.

Sounds good

Sounds great but what a poor choice for a name XD
