This German duo consists of the musicians behind Baldruin and Brannten
Schnüre/Agnes Beil... but their music is not just a simple sum of these
two project... magical surrealism is one way to describe the sound of
Diamantener Oberhof... subtle electronic sounds are mixed with snippets of
accordion melodies... even though this is contemporary folk music it
sounds very pure and authentic... like obscure lo-fi field recordings...
bringing to mind some of the better Fonal recordings from the past (think
Kemialliset Ystävät, Paavoharju and Islaja) or a more folklore minded Kaa
Antilope... this is a sort of new primitivism and nothing less as in
between archaic-electronic-ambient-folk-Dada-pop music...
