Lyckle De Jong – Bij Annie Op Bezoek
SONLP-004
110 lei
 
The album has a cinematic feel and inherents several interludes of Annie singing her favourite ‘Schlager’ songs, recorded live in her living room. It feels like entering a different world - Annie’s world…

Charming and quietly moving concept piece from Lyckle De Jong, who creates a soundtrack narrative to his encounters with 'Annie', an octogenarian who is said to have been living in near-isolation for over a decade following the death of her husband. De Jong draws inspiration from the classic Dutch minimal wave tradition, embracing the quirks and idiosyncrasies of something like Top Tape, while underpinning the whole thing with an obviously romanticised nostalgia, accentuated by the presence of Annie herself singing that other trad Dutch music of schlager. It's that sense of nostalgia that also recalls the mid-late 90s ghostbox feel of Boards of Canada, Pram etc. It's a little less rounded out, but it's touching similar hauntological territory in its evocation of the ghosts of its protagonist's life.
