Editorial Reviews

2007 sophomore full-length release by Swod (Oliver Doerell and Stephan W”hrmann), following 2004's highly-acclaimed Gehen album. If there's been one positive trend emerging from the ruins of what used to be called Electronica for the last couple of years, it has been the comeback of acoustic instruments, especially the piano. Swod, without a doubt, are among the founding fathers of this new, almost neoclassical approach and the success of their debut only proved them right. Sekunden is more than a simple follow-up, it is bigger than even the band's die-hard fans could have hoped for. The melodies are catchier, the bass is tighter, the electronics catch the general mood of the tracks even better and the drums, in all their subtlety, are funkier.

Format: Audio CD
Swod is front running the evolution of modern classical composition with their second full length release on one of my favorite labels, City Centre Offices. The ping-pong approach of passing the files back and forth among two talented composers who met in Berlin in 1991, Oliver Doerell and Stephan Wöhrmann, cemented a perfect distance bridge for a marvelous result. Minimal piano melodies and lo-fi filter sweeps of hissing field recordings and "the voice of a long dead cinema icon" allow for new discovered samples on each rotation. Being a long time follower of Dictaphone (Oliver Doerell's project with Roger Döring), I instantly recognize the borrowed clicks, tweaked chirps, and many other electronic treatments that are so characteristic of Dictaphone's earlier releases on CCO. Wöhrmann's piano playing adds yet another dimension to the style, and gently shifts the genre from future jazz into neo classical. I listen to this album over and over, and it seems to perfectly accompany the sentimental feeling I get when I stare out the window and watch the world run through its senseless cycles. No wonder the duo has scored silent films. Highly recommended if you like Porn Sword Tobacco, Julien Neto, Xela, and of course Dictaphone. Favorite tracks: Ja, Sekunden, and Paintage.

Swod's first release, Gehen, was filled with some promising ideas and a refreshing approach. Some tracks missed, others felt busy, but the piano wasn't smothered in effects (unlike many other electronic acts). The follow up, Sekunden, is a significant improvement. Rather than emphasizing studio trickery, it appears that the duo instead focused more on songcraft, as the melodies are more tuneful, the tracks progress better, and the album as a whole feels very cohesive. Still a chilly affair, with piano, hiss, electronic percussion and other sounds, if you found Gehen to be decent but wanted more, or are looking for some thoughful, interesting electronic music (without delving too close to neo-classical), give this a shot. The samples are nicely representative.
