Live session – Day Seven (Notwist cover) at the Funkhaus

Posted on May 20, 2014

This is the second of three videos from a live recording session we did in Berlin’s Funkhaus – the former headquarters of all things radio (and possibly funk, although this wouldn’t apply to us!) – a few months ago. An amazing old building where we locked ourselves in the former cafeteria with a bunch of audio and video recording equipment and the will to catch the unique vibe of the place. This song is a cover version of The Notwist’s song ‘Day Seven’, from their 1998 record ‘Shrink’. Video shot and edited by Markus Wagner. Music recorded and mixed by Robert Eder.

Album review: Nero’s Prospect – Skug.at

‘An assured sense of style’

The name of the band ‘The Tiller & The Tide’ sets the tone for their debut album: the ocean runs like a leitmotif through ‘Nero’s Prospect’, be it in the form of poetic lyrics about sailors, in the dusky design of artwork, or the rich soundscapes that inundate listeners from the get-go and carry them off into dream-like parallel worlds for the next hour. Sometimes it seems as if the musicians surrender without resistance to the various currents of the sea before grasping the tiller to navigate the waves with an assured sense of style.
