Sea Songs

Acker (2015)

 Pressed on black vinyl by Mobineko. LP jackets screenprinted by ACKER bassist Constantin Roman. Contains B&W insert.

ACKER’s album art depicts the mystery and unpredictability in their music. Although ACKER labels itself as a rock band, the combination of guitars, percussion and cello, plus the creative and ingenious application of pedals destine the band’s extraordinarines far past rock ‘n’ roll.

Because of the peculiar blending of orchestration and your typical rock elements, Sea Songs doesn’t bring you immediate excitement as if gulping a whole mug of ice cold beer. However, listening to Sea Songs is like tasting a bottle of decent, well-stored wine. You sip this lavish drink, then feel it flowing through your blood vessels, reaching the branches of your nerves. After emptying the wine bottle, the fruitiness still remains on your tongue, in your throat, and you couldn’t help yearning for more.

Sea Songs‘ first track “fear generation” strikes aggressively after its quiet intro, and you could even be annoyed if you’re not into the forward guitars. ACKER uses common overdrive, but utilizes it in a more challenging way. Continue listening to the song, and you’ll notice the band controls the balance and harmony between electronic and acoustic instruments tactfully. It’s an irrefutable combination.
