On "Liberation von History", Wechsel Garland is playing a lot with seeming contradictions. The two very different facets of his music whose cohesion is not immediately accessible correspond to the album's two sides: while
side one sounds sad and melancholic, side two appears very at ease and liberated from musical conventions.
Jörg Follert has come a long way since his "Wunder" album. With "Liberation von History", he in a way liberates himself from the stereotypes or clichés that had then been attributed to him. You will nonetheless find everything you used to love about his music, everything that fascinated and enticed you, here again - only different, taken much further.
The album features guest performances by Jens Massel (the person behind the Karaoke Kalk projects Kandis, Fumble and Senking) at the bass, Jacques Palminger (member of the Hamburg-based band Universal Gonzales) and finally the voice of a Japanese singer Hirono Nishiyama.
