März – The River | Karaoke Kalk 10″ 38




The River




Kalk 10" 38

Release Date:



Although it’s been two whole years since their first album “Love Streams”
was released, the songs of März are fresh in our minds as ever. While time
flies, music is the constant factor in our lives, one might think. And this
is exactly the kind of music März make – music that stays in your ear. Not
that it’s so catchy you can’t get rid of it, but rather that you recognise
it by its subtleties, and listeners to the new 10″ by März, “The River”,
won’t have to dig out the album first to know exactly how for instance “The
Help Song” sounded.

“The River” offers two new tracks by März that give us a little foretaste of
their new album, “Wir sind hier”, due to be released on 25th October. The
title track as well as the B side with “Blaue Fäden” are with their
instrumentations and arrangements slightly reminiscent of tracks like Durutti Column’s “Summer”. But this comparison doesn’t quite work, because the use of
strings and melodies or personal moods and remembrances the music awakens
are not enough to relate this kind of reference to an outside world usually
very different from one’s own and to the present. And März are present.
