With a earthy yet airy voice and an advanced degree in experimental electronics, Barbara Morgenstern seduces your ear with melodic German poetry while the sounds of electronic frippery provides an aural wallpaper of ambient experience. This little EP offers up 5 tracks all done in conjunction with other Krautrock electronics technicians. “Ubermorning” is almost pop sounding with a 4/4 underbeat overlaid with a double time 3/4 melody, Justus Löhncke is her dance partner and while I can’t translate the lyric, it’s pure ’80s pop song joy. “Scrambler” with Robert Lippok is the dance track, and if you dance moves are limited to swaying in place while sipping designer water, why that’s just fine. Your über ungeradetracks lies in “Gleich ist Gleich Als Gliech.” Here Morgenstern sings a dreamy lullaby as metallic sounds clank charmingly in the background. Drugs or meditation, either could use this as an effects anodyne to an altered state.
