The Music Makes Me Sick
It is Norman Nitzsche (Mina, NMFarner, Masha Qrella) who produced \"The Music Makes Me Sick\". Or rather: He switched the regulators to \"receive\" and Ella Blixt and Robert Kretzschmar fed the hard disk. They have recorded their songs once again as they were written in their rooms, in rough shape, direct, turning somersaults. Four hands, two voices, that\'s what it is all about. Above all: two voices. Two voices with equal rights, voices that let all the space of the world to one another in order to embrace each other very closely within the next moment. And telling us stories constantly as in \"Lazy\" beginning as a melancholy piano miniature in order to borrow the whole keyboard of a Burt Bacharach in a very nonchalant way. Melodies of longing, while the lyrics tell of the speed with which one wants to live one\'s life. Or as in \"Circus\" where the organ suddenly plays a fair waltz. What ist that music abot? \"It can be about happy things or bad things or no things at all.\" \"It\'s A Musical\" are as rough as subtle, as virtuoso as amateurish, as storming as pausing, as obvious as mischievous. \"If there would be a guarantee, a guarantee for harmony\" that is what they sing in one of their songs. It is aimed at the people and still fits to the music, too, whose smallest as well as biggest common denominator can be called pop. And sincerity.
