By The Waterhole
By The Waterhole is the German-turned-Bergen artist Eva Pfizenmaier.
Her debut solo album "One" was released in November 2013 on PlayDate Record, and I have played it regularly since I got it earlier this year.
What we get here is Eva´s voice along with some keyboard and effects, adding a nice touch to the songs that may in the style of singer-songwriter, art pop or whatever. On PlayDate´s Bandcamp site we may read that her "influences range from pling plong music to alternative pop, from contemporary music to good old fashioned blues", and that sounds reasonable too.
Call it whatever you like, it´s a very fine album. Have a listen to one of the more melancholic tracks "Then and There" here in the blog, or run on over to PlayDate on BandCamp to listen to all of it, before you buy it for next to nothing.
The lyrics may be studied here.
The Søren Andreasen remix of "Then and There" is not on the vinyl version (only for sale at concerts?).
Co-produced and mixed by Stephan Meidell and mastered by Jørgen Træen.
