Happy Catchy Friday Music: Hauschka

October 24, 2008

I have been waiting days to post this!

So yeah, maybe such stuff is not your bag, right? My initial feelings, as well. But, give it a chance, and I’m sure you’ll find it as pleasantly surprising as I did.

Hauschka is self-dubbed ‘experimental piano music’ of German composer Volker Bertelmann. ‘Eltern’ – featured above- is one of the slower numbers, but listen for the catchy upward swing in ‘Friebad’ (another off of his latest album, Ferndorf) or the jazz-ish ‘Traffic’ from his earlier days, befitting of A Peanuts Christmas Special.

Of the mere 6 shows he is playing in the US, one of them just happens to be at our very own Hotel Utah in San Francisco, on November 23rd. We should consider ourselves lucky to be able to experience this dude’s talent for only 10 little dollars, and at a pretty unique little venue at that.

To top it off, Hauschka will be playing alongside Tom Brosseau, talented folk singer, and Magik*Magik Orchestra– the official studio orchestra for local indie recording studio Tiny Telephone (founded by our own local hero, John Vanderslice)

So for $10 you can welcome a foreign talent to our wonderful city, while drinking beer under an enormous stuffed moose head, and at the same time support a fine local establishment and the independant music scene. Makes you reconsider that whole stuffy ‘classical’ thing, doesn’t it?
