Diggin’ This: Benny Gebert – “Night Life” (Arts & Crafts Records)
This cricket chirp-fueled piano hypnosis on repeat.
Recorded in a farmhouse in the woods of upstate New York in the midst of a heatwave with all of the windows wide open for maximum cricket and coyote collaboration, “Night Life” by Benny Gebert (one half of the German indie-pop duo HAERTS) and recorded by Andy Baldwin (Björk, St. Lucia, HONNE) is a Nils-ish, Chilly-esque pulsing piano meditation that perfectly captures the balmy blur and hovering heat of summer.
Track of the day.
