As the end of the year closes in Peter Prautzsch returns to the surface with a soothing and somewhat picturesque new album featuring 7 tracks each recently recorded in September 2012. Altes Land (Old Country) again takes the quiet path laid down by the early 2012 album release Schwere See. All arrangements wander through rich organic textures, meandering in and out of the carefully shaped musical scope. You wouldn‘t record this sort of music in spring as these nostalgic drones, intimate loops and dusty field-recordings illustrate the beauty of late autumn field walks. Altes Land is a dense soundtrack made for the last sun-drenched october mornings and the first snow of the year and it will help you kick your way through the leaves.
