jens pauly – below [whitelabrecs]

After a 3 month hiatus of physical releases, we’re delighted to have come through the other side to be able to resume our schedule of vinyl-effect CDrs. The catalog resumes with ‘Below’ by Cologne, Germany’s Jens Pauly, an artist whose album ‘Vihne’ was released by us last year.

Vihne is a ‘city’ album, full of dust and artificial light whereas Below is more free and open, as it is inspired by the natural world. The cover image was taken by Jens last Autumn and in this record, he tried to reflect the peaceful moments he experienced during this time. There’s a calmness to the sound underpinned by a satisfying melancholy, as we take in these breezy reflections.

Below perpetuates the subtle beauty of a timeless moment. It’s fragile, and yet, in all its reduced textures, it’s demanding in its overall emotional undergrowth – closely intertwined in hope and yearning.
