'Lucky Hands' is the most recent album from thomas brinkmann.
This album is a coincidence of will and action. Would it be right to say that the fact that this production happened was an accident? - Maybe not, as much as it would deprive the producer of his interference and presence in the whole process, but at the end it was simply a lucky hand that pressed the right knob at the right time. The album has an appeal to be easily charming and intelectually accessible probably for everyone who likes funkyness in its both frivolity and heavyness. This is one of the best semi pop productions of the nearest past. It's very diverse, sliding from straight dance to melodic vocal dub `margins`, then marching into the dark german woods, called 'maschine' - a clash of light and heavyness of kraftwerk and ramstein at once. But sometimes mr. morrissey can be even heavier, like in in `the more you ignore me, the closer i get`, a vocal track with the original smiths lyrics. Respect to talking heads!!! And not to be said in the contentious way, but having much in common with them, the track `lucky hands`turned out to be better made by brinkmann. The album is ending with the stunning idea of marco palmieri, who combined some of the drums taken from `isch/ROW`with the extraordinery musicien dj reinhard from the 20ies, whose music is timeless. as the closing of the album, this track leaves an optimistic perspective to produce further, beyond time. Shortly, it is luck that things happen. It is luck, devotion and courage that music can still reflect, challange and encourage and finally it is also luck that at the end its pointless to talk about musik. Just grab and listen.
