Für Chopin

Huck Blues-Front-RGB_web

Sebastian Kiefer, aka Huck Blues, had originally considered these songs as a collection for his band Diving For Sunken Treasure. After about two years of labor the result was a raw and untypically candid album. In 13 songs, Huck Blues tells compositionally complex stories, with a remarkable instrumental variety, stylistic attention to detail and technical perfectionism. Ranging from quiet, gentle, almost balladesque, to orchestral size – sometimes even within a single song.
Sebastian creates a dense atmosphere with the near-dozen instruments, most of which he himself has mastered and recorded for the album. Huck Blues bowes to greats like Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, sometimes reminiscent of Calexico, Beirut or Bob Seger.

Unexpected Gift


It was a seven-year creative process from the first rehearsal until this release – and you can hear on these 20 (!) songs how much this band has invested. With Unexpected Gift, Kick Joneses are making themselves and us the gift of a new level of songwriting, texting, singing an arranging. What is striking is the volitionally eclectic approach. The leitmotiv of this record is that there is none. It is the amazing variety which makes it indeed an Unexpected Gift. There are pulsative and danceable songs next to fluffy pop tunes and rather rock orientated ones. But Kick Joneses are also entering new terrain after all these years. The three ballads marking this premiere are remarkably non-cheesy and wholehearted.

During the slow incoming spring in May 2016 these gentlemen gathered in a small cottage located in the middle of the forest a couple of miles outside their residence in Dalecarlia, Sweden. Their goal was to put 11 songs on tape, live and raw, over two austere days. And it succeeded. With total concentration and focus together with some canned food everything went very smoothly. Without having seen the light for 48 hours, they left the lonely village with 11 fresh power pop tracks. Although spring is often associated with flowers and birds chirping, it’s very dark and gloomy in Sweden during this time of year – the album title Noir felt close and self written. But the material also had gotten into a different direction. Immediately after the members had started working on the album, some time before the recording, they felt that after all the years together they had grown as a band and the songs followed them in the right direction into a stronger and, at this time, darker environment – Noir is certainly a band album in the truest sense.
