Hanno Leichtmann - Nuit Du Plomb [Karaoke Kalk - 2006]

Nuit Du Plomb is a fine slice of ambient electronic beats scapes, full of wonky melodies and hazy ambient drifts. Original conceived as a soundtrack to a reading of German expressionist writer's Hans Henny Jahnn novlet The Night of Lead, but donít let this put you off this is not a deep concept album. Itís very approachable and consistent collection of tracks.

On offer are eight tracks that go from straight out melodic synthesiser drifts tied to easy beats, to more stretched out and smudged round the edges, eerier  sound works. Hardly the most original album, you can hear traces of past ambient electronic artist. But thereís enough of Mr Leichtmann own personality in the sound , his ear for musically - thematic  flow and a knack of coming up with memorable melodies, to make this an enjoyable and rewarding trip.

Iíll have to say Iíve always had a soft spot for ambient beatscapes, and certainly a good example of how it can be done , very well. One I can see my self returning to again and again and has made  me curiosity about Mr Leichtmannís other work.
