"Kalk Seeds is documenting the spreading of the Kalk herb, particularly in Japan and in Germany. 16 tracks and one videoclip display the open and yet so specific profile of the (now Berlin-) label that has been continuously releasing for 8 years now. And it becomes clear: Karaoke Kalk assembles music that¹s not happening like this anywhere else; always docked on the here and now, it is drawing a line into the most diverse sound-worlds, recently even to those far from the electronic one, always connecting them in the unique Kalk specific manner. Kalk Seeds starts off with Roman¹s elegantly formulated pop and allows a fascinating preview on his second album (coming later this year). Including his song, 10 in 16 of the compilation¹s tracks are brand-new and haven¹t been released before. Thus, the label-geography is constantly developing new ground. Listen to Hauschka¹s lyrical miniature on a manipulated piano here, follow Le Rok¹s odd beats and gentle harmonies dancing together over there. In the meantime, there¹s Takagi Masakatsu¹s amazing song-excursions to Japanese melancholy: 4 3/4 min. full of dramatic, even beguiling fragility. In addition you¹ll find Kalk classics like Donna Regina and März, whose music is as characteristic for the label as is that of the old heroes in new sounds like Sora/Garland and Kandis." (label info)
