Amsterdam-based duo Harm Coolen and Merijn Schotte Albers aka Weval present their debut album for Cologne-based institution Kompakt, following two widely acclaimed EPs for the imprint. This self-titled effort is not a mere collection of tracks, but a complete listening experience with organic flow, emotional heft and a narrative thread - all presented in their uniquely personal and catchy approach to producing dark electronic music. From the slow burning boogie-down mood of opening "The Weight", moments of introspective IDM as heard on "Are You Even Real" through to the subtle blues rock influence on the pop-inflected "Heaven, Listen" to the bluted trip-hop vibe of old on the chiller "Silence On The Wall" - these guys have a diverse style to express over these dozen awesome songs.
