Haruko- Wild Geese
Haruko is teenager Susanne Stanglow (Susi) and she currently resides in Bremen in Germany. Susi recorded this album during three weeks in December 2008 at her house. Oh, therefore it isn't perfect, but it's perfectly flawed and perfectly human. Susi on the recording: 'I really, really hope you like them because ... I am not totally satisfied. I wasn't able to do professional recordings, as you know, so I tried my best with the stuff I had. It was sometimes a little hard since it's so cold in my room that I was freezing and there were always noises around so that I had to stop recording sometimes and the mic of my recorder is not so good and - oh my god - so many things.' Bracken Records wrote: 'I'm glad that the recording circumstances were not ideal. I think it will add to the intimacy of the songs. I imagine being lost on a mountain with wolves all around would be a cold and frightening experience, for example, so it's only right you sound that way.'
What's it all about? It's about being outdoors all year round, climbing, walking, running, stalking. It's about mountains and wooded lands, little birds and desert sands. It's about changing seasons, enchanted lands, dragons and monsters, and holding hands. It's about nightmares and dreams and cats and time, and children living in nursery-rhyme. It's about love and loss, and discovering things, fairytales and nature dancing, and it's how a waterfall would sound if it could sing. It's about safely waking on the perfect day for you, smiling at nothing to be done except what you choose to do. It's about what life should be about, and it's one of the most beautifully evocative albums we've ever heard. Loner folk never felt more intimate and warm than this!! (Review by Piccadilly Records)
