If anyone knows me, they’d know this album forms a perfect storm of what I dig about music. I love it when someone actually aims to “sell out” by doing it in such a way that everyone is left dumbfounded by the product of that intended vision. There is one “right” way to pull that of course, and that’s where some hidden gems are always found. What is that right way, you ask? The answer can be found in Joachim Witt’s Moonlight Nights, a perfect je ne sais quo of German electro-pop that goes beyond anything you’d expect to hear then. Surprisingly tropical. Surprisingly experimental and “German”, it’s one of my all-time favorite summer albums for reasons I’ll never quite be able to place.
