Today we’re listening to Grandbrothers, a Swiss-German duo formed in Düsseldorf. It’s a pianist and a percussionist whose music is all made from one instrument: the piano. Listen to All the Unknown from this year (reminder: that’s 2021) and be baffled by the sounds they create within this constraint. Unknown is a beautiful, dramatic record that seems to score an invisible movie. 2017’s Open is equally beautiful, with pensive Reznor/Ross-like phrases.
Have a really good Thursday.
