Alive AG Who you are Alternative CD Botanica
8,27 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Botanica, noch immer eine der unterbewertesten Bands des Genres vereinen auf ihrem neuen Album all das, wofür der geneigte Fans sie liebt.nnWho You Are ist das zentrale Thema der zwölf Songs von Botanicas gleichnamigem sechsten Studio-Album. Bandleader Paul Wallfischs bewegende Stimme ist und bleibt das Markenzeichen der Band und dennoch macht er diesmal Platz für gleich zwei weitere Leadsänger: Gitarrist John Andrews (Peter Murphy, Nena) glänzt in seinen Songs, dem provokanten Cocktails On The Moon und der post-psychedelischen Hymne Xmas, während Dana Schechter (American Music Club, Bee And Flower) mit You Might Be The One im Duett mit Paul Wallfisch an grandiose Duos wie Lee & Nancy erinnern lässt. Liebe, Wahnsinn und weitere menschliche Ausnahmezustände ebnen Botanica den Weg in eine stilistisch vielfältige Songauswahl, mit der sie an die Erwartungen ihrer Fans anknüpfen - krummen Takten wie im Titelsong Who You Are, Uptempo-Nummern wie Witness, Melancholischem in Anhalter Bahnhof oder dem vorwärts preschenden Rock-Song Perfection. Eine zentrale Stimmung des Albums, dessen Arbeitstitel Love war, ist die Sehnsucht wie in Because You're Gone, für das die New Yorker Musik-Ikone Little Annie den Text schrieb, und die Trauer um einen Verstorbenen in Backlit: If I dial your number, has it been reassigned heißt es unendlich traurig im Text. Wallfischs eigener Song-Favorit ist aber eindeutig For Love mit seinem unwiderstehlichen Mississippi-Delta Feeling. Schließlich ist es aber die erhabene Schlussnummer des Albums So Far From Childhood, die Trost spendend verbreitet: I'm going up, down is where you don't have to be. Aufgenommen in New York und Aachen, der Heimat ihres langjährigen Labels rent a dog, produziert im bewährten Team Wallfisch / Rattay und gemischt von Jürgen Müller, der auch schon für das 2009er Live-Album americanundone zum 10-jährigen Bestehen der Band verantwortlich war, ist Who You Are zum einen das ultimative Botanica-Album und zum anderen ein Aufbruch in neue musikalische Abenteuer, denn seit der Veröffentlichung von The Magnetic Waltz im Jahr 2007 hat sich viel ereignet im Botanica-Kollektiv: Paul Wallfisch nahm 3 Alben mit der New Yorker Musik-Ikone Little Annie auf und begleitete sie auf mehreren Tourneen, so auch jetzt im November 2009. Im Sommer 2010 wird er von New York nach Dortmund übersiedeln um dort die musikalische Leitung am Dortmunder Schauspiel unter Intendant Kay Voges zu übernehmen. John Andrews ist der neue Gitarrist von Bauhaus-Legende Peter Murphy und wird im Frühjahr wieder mit Nena touren. Der langjährige Bassist Christian Bongers übergab den Bass an Dana Schechter, die alsbald vom American Music Club angeheuert wurde. Udo Masshoff (Readymade) und Mark Stepro (Ben Kweller) halfen als Drummer aus, bevor mit Schlagzeuger Dave Berger aus New Orleans und Bassist Jason Binnick das aktuelle Line-Up gefunden wurde. Auf der im Februar 2010 startenden Europatournee wird als Very Special Guest-Schlagzeuger Brian Viglione (Nine Inch Nails, Dresden Dolls) mit Botanica auf der Bühne zu sehen sein. Anne de Wolff steuert auch dieses Mal die unwiderstehlichen Streicherarrangements bei und auch ihr Trompeter-Kollege von Calexico Martin Wenk ist auf dem Album zu hören.

Fly Fishing the Louisiana Coast: A Complete Gui...
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Great fishing in great settings with great people and great food, too! Where else can you catch tarpon, eat authentic jambalaya, and dance to zydeco, all in one day? This is the first, and definitive, guide to saltwater fly fishing in Louisiana-inshore, coastal, and offshore. This where-to, how-to guide's coverage begins on the western edge of Cajun Country, in the Lake Charles region, and extends east to the Mississippi River Delta. Louisiana harbors an amazing range of fish: redfish, specks, flounder, tripletail, cobia, tarpon, crevalle jacks, and Spanish mackerel, even largemouth bass, and the author cues you in to what gear to bring, from rod to fly, and provides essential information on local guides; marinas; sporting goods; outfitters; suggestions for sightseeing on your fishing down time; accommodations, from motels to plantation beds; and venues for authentic regional 'good eating' and music. Many of Louisiana's year-round saltwater opportunities, both offshore and inshore, were developed in the past 10 years. In that time, there's been a growth of fly fishing in the state, and catch-and-release has replaced the ice-chest as a measure of fishing success. Whether you're sight-casting, blind-casting, surfcasting, or casting from your 'mud-boat,' here's your chance to hook into your biggest fish ever. Conventioneers and revelers alike in the Big Easy-pack your rod for your next trip, and get out and fish!
