Nils Frahm has quietly released another master-work

Created to compliment "All Melody" while on tour, the 25minutes of sound found here, shows Frahm getting back to what he truly does best. This to me is better than his LP release.

Although it sounds nice, I've never personally had an affinity for classical music, so I can't appreciate it as much as others might be able to. This whole EP is a very pleasant listen, although I didn't really get captured by any of these tracks.

Vibes: Sitting in a room with nothing but leather and red velvet chairs with an open view to a snowy landscape outside.
