Barbara Morgenstern moved to Berlin via Hamburg. With her idiosyncratic sound that’s part electronic, part song-writing, and part folk, she quickly became a celebrated sensation. Her enchanting music is beautiful and radical at the same time, somnambulistic and yet full of groove. On her current album “Unschuld und Verw├╝stung”, the beat often fades out, giving way to the invigorating hum of woodwind instruments (played in concert by Christian Biegai); when the beat does kick in, you suddenly feel like you have been plunged into an abstract future R&B record. Barbara Morgenstern’s new album was released by “Staatsakt” (Bonaparte, Isolation Berlin, Dagobert).
