rolf bronnimann

wonderful fresh sound, nicely strange, great whisper voice.
each song is a different experience, listening doesn't get monotonous. the instrumentation is fresh, reminds me sometimes of flower power sounds and i like that. good lyrics. all in all a great find (saw it on the mccarrigle website). thank you for this music.
