Ulrich Schnauss - Far Away Trains Passing By


Ulrich Schnauss is a German electronic artist who is influenced by forebears like Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk--but unlike retro-space artists, he doesn't sound like he just emerged from their dusty studios after being marooned there for 30 years. Instead, his synthesizers bristle with contemporary electro-rhythms, a bit of New Wave romanticism, and melodies you want to last forever. Schnauss has perfected a balance between quiet yearning and joyful heroism in his music, with sweeping major-chord progressions that are triumphal without being ostentatious, expansive without being pompous. For someone who is so rhythm-centered with crackling snares and electro-glitches, it's ultimately the melodies that draw you in, turned on glistening, bell-like timbres and space-organ sustains. Far Away Trains Passing By is actually his first album, released in Europe in 2001, but it's been out of print and is being issued in the United States for the first time. The reissue comes with a bonus CD that includes six pieces pulled from various Schnauss side projects and tracks that didn't make the original album. Far Away Trains Passing By is electronica with a melancholy soul, and it has lost nothing in the intervening years.

DISC 1:
1. Knuddelmaus
2. Between Us And Them
3. Passing By
4. Blumenwiese Neben Autobahn
5. Nobody's Home
6. Molfsee

DISC 2: BONUS DISC:
1. Sunday Evenings In Your Street
2. Suddenly The Trees
3. Nothing Happens In June
4. As If You've Never Been Away
5. Crazy For You
6. Wherever You Are

From Ulrich Schnauss through Blockheads and right up to Tosca... you my friend, have impeccable taste. Kudos to you and yours and a manly pat on the back from a Scotsman in NZ. Happy days!
As it goes - I already own very worn out copies of these albums though I commend you on unleashing them to the dribbling masses.
A fine blog sir. Fine indeed.

Simply Excellent!
Incidentally, the track "As If You've Never Been Away" was used by Jill Stuart for her Spring/Summer 2009 at the recent New York Fashion Week. I enjoyed this version as well as the one on the album "The Trip" which had the Close Encounter signature tune mashed in during the intro:) Cheers!
