And of course, the days are short, the nights are long and we must celebrate the birth of our saviour again.
Christmas was no friend of mine. But there is one little bit of light in the dark days of Christmas: Meeuw Muzak releases another fine 7". By now I can spend at least half boxing day listening to the crazy Christmas tunes of Meeuw. The latest addition is by Ditterich von Euler-Donnersperg who has released some even more crazy music on his own Walter Ulbricht label and Die Stadt, with partly reading of texts and partly electronic music.
Here he offers two soft electronic music pieces, which are like snowflakes (of course it never snows in Dutch Christmas times). Almost kitchy and new age like on a super cheesy keyboard with all the wrong (and thus right) preset sounds, Ditterich is perhaps that great family man that such tunes under his Tannenbaum for a wealth of happy children, who start unwrapping their presents as daddy finishes his tunes.
Great stuff, once again. I can't wait for Christmas with my Meeuw Muzak collection (isn't about time for a nice CD compilation, mister Meeuw).
