• kristian harting Summer of Crush (digipak CD, £14.50)

    label: exile on mainstream

    After his critically acclaimed debut solo effort “Float”, released 2014, seminal Danish troubadour Kristian Harting returns with a new album and blesses the world with a batch of 12 new songs.  While its predecessor “Float” incorporated ethereal songwriting skills deeply inspired by Western lo-fi pop, Mali Blues and the more avant-garde side of Folk, Kristian widens his focus towards a much more pop-orientated approach.  “Summer Of Crush” is an album oscillating between melancholic dreamscapes and synth-laden shamanic dance tracks.  Motown meets Metal meets Morricone – an ambition that seems to be bound to fail. But not here!  This new album will be accompanied by a serious set of live efforts again and a big European tour in early 2016. His live skills are exceptional and we can only advise every listener not to miss these shows.  In 2014 he toured Europe massively with FUTURE ISLANDS, and later with labelmates CONNY OCHS and FRIEDEMANN, building up a quite impressive fanbase.  The album is released in a mini gatefold CD sleeve in oversized square measurements, printed on heavy cardboard and sealed with a matt lamination.
