Rodi Kirk's traveller music is perfect to drift away to. I wish I could drop everything, and jump on a train for a few hours while listening to Solms on repeat. Jazz and psychedelic folk infected krautrock beats for the ages.
Written and recorded in the winter of 2012/13, Solms is the first solo release since the New Zealand born artist relocated to Berlin.
These songs follow on from Rodi’s 2011 LP 'Distance from View' distancefromview.bandcamp.com, contrasting traditional instrumentation with contemporary electronica, serving as a link between past and present.
