Excellent new concept double album by Janek Schaefer on Crónica. His best to date. 12 commissioned pieces that range from dreamy to truly hairraising. 'Asleep at the weel...' is absolutely fabulous. An installation consisting of ghost cars & in-car soundtracks. The 20 minute piece on the album documents the dangers of overconsumption & overuse of natural resources from inside the biggest culprit of the last century: the rise & fall of the car. It's like praying for survival inside an erupted vocano. It's really quite spellbinding. One of my favourite albums of the year 2012.
