Synopsis

Album Description
A sequel to the acclaimed Lunz project, this follow-up finds Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Tim Story shedding their original collaborative moniker in favor of recording under their own names. It's great to hear the Cluster and Harmonia veteran in such fine form (he'll be 74 this year), making effortlessly graceful ambient music that still sounds like it's at the very forefront of the genre. Inlandish is bound to prompt comparisons to Ryuichi Sakamoto or Harold Budd for the glowing, meditative piano pieces at the heart of the record, but the kind of electronic treatments and additional instrumentation reaches beyond any single theme, with some compositions simply augmented by ghostly strands of cello, while others more fully embrace digital manipulation, as on 'Serpentining'; a melding of melodic piano and humming circuitry. Of course, there's some great synth work on the album too, particularly when it comes to the vintage Krautrock tones of 'Beforst', a piece wonderfully redolent of Roedelius' past. Gronland. 2008.
 

CD Reviews

A delight
Bazarov | Amsterdam, Holland | 05/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If Tim Story had a leading role on Lunz, Inlandish is predominantly a Roedelius album, and a marvelous one at that, harking back to the glory days of the Selbstporträt lp's and the collaborations with Dieter Moebius and Brian Eno - Begegnungen and After the Heat.
Yes, it's that good.
Ethereal, keyboard-driven melodies, interspersed with quiet, unassuming concrete sounds to lure you away from whatever you meant to do when you put on this disc for background music. Fifty minutes gliding by like a sigh of contentment. Not to be missed by anyone who liked Lunz, nor by anyone else."
