Ulrich Schnauss, 'Goodbye' (Domino)

Critical Mass
Label: Domino

by J Niimi

Judging from his album titles, Ulrich Schnauss always seems to be leaving or long gone. The sounds matched the sentiment on the Berliner's first two releases, 2001's Far Away Trains Passing By and 2003's A Strangely Isolated Place -- gracefully melancholic electronica with too much soul to be relegated to sushi-restaurant background music. Goodbye is a bittersweet farewell to Berlin after Schnauss' return to his hometown on the Baltic coast, and the wafting synths evoke fog rolling in from the sea on an overcast autumn afternoon.
