LP / Vrystaete Records (Enfant Terrible) / 2015
his German duo consists of
the musicians behind Baldruin and Brannten Schnüre/Agnes Beil...
but their music is not just a simple sum of these two project...
magical surrealism is one way to describe the sound of Diamantener
Oberhof... subtle electronic sounds are mixed with snippets of
accordion melodies... even though this is contemporary folk music it
sounds very pure and authentic... like obscure lo-fi field
recordings... bringing to mind some of the better Fonal recordings from
the past (think Kemialliset Ystävät, Paavoharju and Islaja)
or a more folklore minded Kaa Antilope... this is a sort of new
primitivism and nothing less as in between archaic-electronic-ambient-folk-Dada-pop music...
