MUSIC SOOTHES THE SOUL: SEEED RETURNS WHILE TRUMPETS BLAST

I needed a while to see its beauty. After listening to Molotov for the first time my enthusiasm for Seeed´s new album hat sich sehr in grenzen gehalten (was pretty well curbed).

Just as with U2´s Zooropa once the change of the rhythm and the sound made me, a creature of permanent habit, slightly unhappy. But just as with Zooropa then, the more I listened to the new songs, the more I heard and understood the new lyrics, my enthusiasm for the new sound was steadily growing.

Until I could not keep my feet from stomping, my arms from waving and my throat from screaming the songs along straight from the bottom of my heart. And on the top of my lungs (here I wish to apologise to all neighbours – just sing with me is what I say).

Here are two songs, a special favourite of my oldest son´s who thinks Molotov (click to see the lyrics) to be his life anthem by now – and I would not mind it remaining so. And Mummy´s favourite tune called Beautiful where the trumpets are tearing at my inner strings and make my eyes go bling-bling. And let me add, the video for this song is a bloody masterpiece of imagination and animation, yeah!

By the way, for those conversant with Kreuzberg´s topography, Molotov includes some pretty cool shots of the borough: Kotti (Kottbusser Damm from our readers from abroad), Festsaal Kreuzberg in Skalitzer Strasse (filmed during an impromptu concert last year which drew such crowds that half of the roundabout was blocked) and last but not least, the National Denkmal on top of Kreuzberg in Viktoriapark. Hearts will melt. Feet will beat the rhythm. Arms will be waved.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the one and only SEEED!

For O.

For Mummy – Me
