NICORETTE by Anja Dietmann
Black vinyl, Colour sleeve, Includes 8 page booklet, 2023
The LP nicorette contains 10 performative songs, which deal with everyday situations in an uncanny light, like a cat with no swimsuit, a dog with no watch but a sharp view, or failed eye contact on a Skype call. As with Anja Dietmann’s motifs, the instruments on the recording often include articles of daily use and invert expectations. Saltshakers serve as percussion instruments; a midi Casio guitar substitutes the sound of a piano. The result is an auditory space in which–without much vocal technical interference–the narrative stands in the foreground.
