Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan's label presents the original film score and soundtrack for the new German film 'Once upon a time there was Indian's Land' which is centred around 12 brand new songs by Acid Pauli aka Martin Gretschmann (The Notwist, Console) who plays a central role via his close collaboration with director Ilker Catak. Gretschmann's music is eclectic and adventurous. from dystopic, carnivalesque moods via moments of high intensity to deep melancholia and fragile atmosphere - boundaries are being teared down. Sometimes psychedelic and far out, sometime focused, catchy with one eye for the dancefloor: but never predictable. The soundtrack is a mixture of his old and new tracks plus music of artists that he works with.
On the debut album of Aparde (aka Paul Camillo Rachel), he certainly took his liberties in regard to his musical output. He consciously limited and aligned this series of songs which originated between the end of 2015 and mid 2016. Each one is said to have gone through a lengthy process of development. The album was finalized in early summer of 2017, in an old cottage upon a lake in the north of Germany. Featuring lead single "Mouth", the album as a whole is sombre yet wholly evocative and features even more stunning highlights. From the dramatic opener "Siren" which sounds like freefall in motion, the jagged "North" which is reminiscent of a Life & Death style journey track that's been deconstructed, plus the lush deep house of "Sand" which provides an adequate momentum at a time when the LP benefits from it.
