DOOMENFELS

doomenfels

A stack of cassettes, some instruments, a microphone and a borrowed Tascam 488 were stuffed into a cellar in spring 2012. Enough equipment for Dominic Oppliger alias «Doomenfels» to write and record a series of songs that now are compiled on the six track EP «Epilog». These carefully arranged sketches around sometimes urgent and repetitive beats are accompanied by a Dark-Folkish mood. One can feel the Lo-Fi approach yet the melodies seem weightless and manage to elevate the songs from dark cosy places into the light. Doomenfels sings in Swiss German, a language that is alien to most people and in this context will sound new even to native speakers which only adds to the supernatural air.
