"Whispering, a laid back pop rhythm and something that sounds like an overwound gramophone ­ thus begins "Jinx", the new album by the Kammerflimmer Kollektief. Recorded by Tobias Levin at Electric Avenue Studio, it is their sixth longplayer. This band is still a "collective", although within the last years and extensive touring through Europe, a group of three core members emerged from the original line-up: Thomas Weber (guitar, electronics, piano), Heike Aumüller (harmonium, vocals, synthesizer, percussion) and Johannes Frisch (double bass and percussion). The eight songs on "Jinx" leave the wide-screen cinemascope soundscapes of the previous albums behind. With their serenity, these songs sound almost like a sediment of the band's earlier approach. This becomes evident in a track like "Nest" (which is reminiscent of the folk-jazz-approach of early Pentangle albums), or the beautifully minimalist yet very touching country-epic "Live At The Cactus Tree Motel"."
