Here comes the last installation to my Six Weeks Absence series. Last, but not least, I would enjoy the privilege to introduce:
Talking To Turtles – A Car, A Beer, Cigarettes
You know, I used to be of the opinion that german music was hopeless. As a german-speaking individual, I can tell you the language isn’t too beautiful, at least, not in the way french is. Complex? Yes. Definitely. A bit rough on the ears, to be honest. Anyway, my point is: I haven’t heard a good german artist in a while.
Talking To Turtles is a duo consisting of Florian Sievers and Claudia Göhler, that originated in Rostock, Leipzig. When? No clue. Their website is less-than helpful when it comes to a biography. Nonetheless, the highlight is supposed to be the music.
A Car, A Beer, Cigarettes is the eight track off their August 19, 2011 album ‘Oh, the Good Life’.
On top of having beautiful lyrics, the song offers an overwhelming feel of acoustic bliss that, in turn, contributes to the ‘touchiness’ and delicacy of the song. Acoustic songs always captivate me, and this one is no exception.
Well, I guess this concludes my Six Week Absence post. I do hope it doesn’t happen again, but I can offer no promises. Better a broken promise than not at all, eh Twain?
