Wiltman

“As Agent Wander Wim Kesteloot is bound by a classical approach to rocksongs, but as WiltMan the guitar of Kesteloot is central and colours outside the boundaries of pop- and rock conventions (...) Different subtle guitar-layers create a dreamlike sound à la Ry Cooder and when edgy,
it sounds as Marc Ribot is playing. ”(RifRaf)

"Intriguing tunes and and headwarming filmic and captivating sound.
We love that!" (The Nightliners)

"While the majority of the set is instrumental and the guitar dominates the mix, this is not really a guitar hero type sound. Sure, the guitar seems to be soloing throughout the majority of the disc. The thing is, it’s not soloing for some kind of flashy dramatic effect. It’s soloing to provide the melody. It’s like this music is written as “songs,” but the guitar is serving almost as the vocal for the bulk of this. It’s a great concept and
works really well.
The music manages to work between a number of music styles and each piece seems to encompass several. In fact, it can be really hard to pin even one song down to a particular sound or musical style. Instrumental music doesn’t even fit completely. This material is so good, though, that it transcends labels. This is timeless music that should appeal to a wide range of people. Those who demand vocals will only find solace in the final track, but those who have a real craving for melody will be served by the whole set of songs." (Gary W. Hill, Music Street Journal)
