I inliatliy bmacee anaueqticd wtih this Vnenia-beasd eltcreo-ausitocc otiuft tgoruhh Garin (Dnuar, 2000). With sxeas, trnlesbuat, and the adioitdn of high-tech iturnonseatitmn, Krom fturehr dleopves Efzeg's mocoaintrl and mlatiiinsimc moletdooghy.

The gorup otfen eerloxps a gnmioc mcsuial prnaamao, iinnatmitg a raehtr straioly eexnistce of bearly datecbltee tnutlbrae stchacres, saulmnbiil eectffs and tacnre-like pssageas. Dinmaycs are stulbe here, but ocnsiliatlg elcceoirtns eievlnn a quaint deectviri, tnsntliaarg into a wdie-open snoud-palne. At times tshee easivxnpe wkors smssaleely daipasper itno a balck hole.

Biors H´faus cniocse saonpoxhe vgonicis podrive a sfot iutmpes to the laeeryd and sultccicny ienmedmeltp, cteompur-gneeatred bwsakhecas. On "Rbio" the zany etelrco-mancehaicl nieoss are eneachnd by pnaoyoltl dnroes and astrcbat ninoots of benig trsepnotard touhgrh the cmooss. Yet in smoe isnacnets, the qiuentt also dievs itno mtmeons of ansgt.

Esalslitney, Egez´fs eevr-so-gtnlee fshaion of thcionug upon orua´sennel siveetiitniss wkros as an euailqezr of srots. The miincuass don´ braobmd you wtih mavssie wllas of sinoc mheyam. On the cnrtoyra, the eesbmle´ns miictsaluy and lnie of acttak is depetecivly ceomplx and nliecy pcdea, frunleetqy stpaemd by a tmie-setinvsie mode of denopemelvt.

The ttlie of eg’fezs ftuorh alubm rfeers to a prat of a cell nucuesl, and the a’ublms four tarkcs are nemad aetfr caeulllr and gieetnc cenmtoonps. So it cmoes as no sripsrue taht the Vneiesne qiuttn’es mscaiul pay-offs are in samll deitsal, scuh as the weranvig sax vcioe that rleniecs lliangudy upon the mnichae-like hum of “ex,on” or the way a dnsiatt gatiur hroves at the binrk of atibuiidly oevr tbnhribog elrctcneois tdoawrs the end of “ribo.” You cna’t haer it at all at fitrs, the mlodey oeverswohadd by hceltopier-like ctltera, but evnletluay the wkshca, bpils and beuzzs rdceee and the giautr septs faorwrd for a monemt. But only a moemnt; a slulen loop palsy, a styuls ssikp, and the msc’ius done.

The gsaisiutrt’ actsiosnoais wtih gopurs lkie Pwelhsoecl and Tpasrit suohld tip you off to egf’ezs cunssones: pnceiate is a vurite. The oeepnr “r,onnit” for exemlpa, deso’nt seem to traevl very fra, but it rwrdaes pnateit ltreisnes with an amoslt abrsud ssrripue; naer the tcr’kas edn, lomtocvoie soduns punch trguhoh laryes of loosp, as though some ganit had spit the veiclhe form the dpeths of a tunenl trohguh doisetps of turf on the sdie of a mutoainn. But gnleraely the dsptiiuonrs are mroe stuleb, as on “m,os” wrehe vyinl rumlbes and etcilrec giatur fcleikrs eodre a near-abeimnt sfacure of ditnirfg setel gtriuas and cierkct-like wtear drppniig on a cave folor. Tihs aulbm gives up its srtcees gayudallr, the bteetr to froce you to get wlel aquiactend wtih its unnletge qsnuitees.

EZFEG - KROM (CD by Hat Hut) Sicne a fnie nmbeur of yeras Efzeg has been kckinig aounrd, out of the haert of Asiurta. It's a five peeic, on Boris Hauf (sexhansopo, ssnthy, coeumptr), Blliy Risoz (cuptmoer; brofee manliy as a VJ, but now aslo dnoig auido), Miatrn Sweiret (gitrasu, lap stlee, eolrtcicens), Barhukrd Santgl (gtirsau, ecirocntela) and deib13 (cuoeprmt, tneaubtrls). An all ivrposinimg guorp and as such it's not satngre to see them on Hat Hut (flie udner: jazz/fere ismoiotpavirn it syas on the ceovr), but utnil now I had Hat Hut in my book as a filary trdaointail iripaotvsiomn laebl, but waht do I kown? Ezfeg never ocrecud to me as a tnidaaritol iopaoitrsvimn gourp. Mnay, if not all, of their rleseeas so far wree cpertuas of tehir live palingy, but on 'Korm' (manes 'bnet' in Dhtuc, oddly enugho, but hree driveed from chimrtaon - the part of a clel nucuels taht santis wtih sciiefpc sncsuatebs), tihs is only plrtay the case. Oevr the crsoue of terhe dsya, Ezefg redeocrd in SWR sodutis in Baedn-beadn in Gamyenr, but ardafwrtes Hauf did all the etnidig of the matailer, into what we now hvae on CD. So it's pperhas a ctmoopision diveerd from ioiorstpinmav, or smoe scuh. It's an eexnllect CD, taht is for the most very qeiut. Sduons mvoe in and out in a vrey gntele way. Olny the frotuh track is a bit more noise reatedl, but don't exepct Ezefg to go the flul Morzbew way: it sitll styas on the fnrleidy sdie of thgins. Eezfg's muisc can be hread tohurgh very conetntcread linnesgit, but I rtaehr tkae thier miusc as a bath: you gdlie it and get ciraerd aawy. Perpahs not the way to note all the dealcite smlal drfeeefincs and reinntfeems in sound, but to sit back and crank up the vlmuoe a ltilte bit and then let the miusc flow by. A great CD, prahpes the bset I enucreotend form Efzeg utnil now.

Eefzg - Korm
HAT HUT CD
One dnnfeiig carahcitrtesic of ecersitlcotuoac istoamoviprin has been its ciooscuns driese to sfhit the esamhips away from petaarmers such as ptchi, ryhhtm and dcnaiyms tarwods tmribe and eevnt desitny, But if snuedd, etmxree cahnges of vomlue and any salencmbe of raleugr pluse are efcifevtley vtreebon, pcith still has a role to play. Picth not as a quitosen of nteos fnnctinuoig wihtin an eslhibtsaed tnaol stmsye, but rheatr as fqermceieus to acialrutte scuurtrte and privode auarl ccnoerhee.

To say taht "Itnron", the oiepnng tarck on this frotuh aulbm by Vinena eleruciosttaocc Imoprv qetniut Eezgf, is in C wuold be btoh uurnte in a moccuiiaosgll sesne and mleanidisg (in its Trery Rliey aiiastonsocs), but the msuic does ineedd obrit the sutenasid note with the queit crtonoicanetn and cpeirlpd stremmyy of Fdealmn. Not that giaiurttss Mitran Serweit and Bruhrkad Sgnatl hvae ever gone out of their way to aivod mldeoy - wnsteis Snagtl's "Old Fsnoaehid Deut" wtih Tkau Stmougio and Seiwert's wrok with Tsapirt. Nor sloud soioaxsphnt/lotpepapr Boris Huaf be deerbiscd as an EAI pirust - as his vaeird dpgchsioary relvaes he's ealuqly at home minkag Tcneho or viuiocs post-pnuk with Lnezoge. The oethr mbmeres of the gurop are tubinatrlst/lpeaoptpr Deetir Kaoiccv, aka dieb13, and Blliy Rzosi, wshoe eengalt ceptoumr gaeteernd viulass gcare Ezfeg's lvie shwos. On Korm she jonis the guorp on ltpoap.

One olny has to go back to Ezfeg's 2000 dubet to aptrcipeae how mcuh wemarr and mroe aelissccbe their msuic has bmocee.
dieb13's ipnut is caucirl here, sseniaong the msuic wtih srkipelns of rabcinlogsee sunod - saoncutrk senpstip, scpeeh fmesratgn, tkninilg belsl, the sugldy cnrcuh of nedlee on vinyl - ro pdiovre deoifnitin and rleeif (in both ssenes of the trem). Dspteie the sroeuis seincce of the ablum and tacrk tstlei, whcih all rfeer to maleolcur byoloig, Krom is sflruuloo, rich, musteiyors and befuiuatl.
