Thees Uhlmann - Gold
Eight tracks, eight extraordinary German language cover versions. Uhlmann and his newly formed band interpret favorite music - or as the artist himself puts it: "You can't break a good song, not even we can". But for all its coquetry, it becomes clear incredibly quickly that this project is not a demolition firm at work - quite the opposite. It's rather about paying tribute to pieces that really mean something to you with your own musical interpretation. At the beginning of this idea was a track by Hamburg trap rapper Haiyti: "Gold", which also became the title of the album. On this record, Thees Uhlmann transforms the most diverse styles into a highly variable band sound. You're guaranteed to be pruned more than once: "Oh, and that's really not from him? No, all cover versions, we swear. The pieces that fit so well into the Uhlmann verse are from 2raumwohnung, Östro 430, Sophie Hunger, Klotz + Dabeler, Nena, Die Braut haut ins Auge, Judith Holofernes.
