about

A synthesized message from the ghost world.

What exactly is a record? Grooves wrapped in cardboard? Not alone. A statement? A promise? This also. Sometimes a record is like a message in a bottle. Like this four track vinyl debut Konkord has uncorked. A genie named Tschok hovers through the glory days of Pop: synths vibrate and squeak like 1980s wave-pop has sent Morse signals from its hibernation. And the reserved pathos in Michael Lahner´s voice is on par with the top pop voices of this golden decade - without sounding like them. This is the secret of ghosts: they are here but also they are not. This EP is a message from a dreamy world in between. "Ikebana" presents a smoothly floating groove that might even make turtles with a postrock affinity let their hair hang out. On the other hand "The Slumber" is so melancholic and beautiful that you wish to be trapped in a time warp - just to hum along over and over again.

Tschok is the mysterious sounding name of the hero in a 1970s children´s book. How is that fact connected to this sound? A ghost might know!
