Man könnte meinen Lady Blue Beard wären zur falschen Zeit am falschen Ort geboren. Erinnert ihr Leadsänger doch mit seiner extravaganten Art und seiner markanten Stimme eher an frühere Helden wie David Bowie oder Lou Reed. Und auch sonst duftet es ein bisschen nach der Zeit als Pluto noch unser aller Lieblingsplanet war. Man denkt an den Sound der Stones zu besten "Let It Bleed"-Zeiten, hört extatische Backings à la The Kinks' Lola und Songwriterqualitäten, die bei aller Bescheidenheit dann doch immer wieder an die Beatles erinnern. Und doch sind Lady Blue Beard nicht die klassische Vintage-Band bei der man bei jedem Song das Gefühl hat das "Original" zu kennen. Viel zu eigen sind die komplexen Arrangements, zu offen die Genregrenzen Richtung Jazz, Neofolk und modernem Pop. Und schaut man nach direkten Vorbildern der Band liest man ohne Verwunderung auch Dirty Projectors, Feist und Michael Jackson. Eine einzigartige Band wie sie nur alle paar Jahre vorkommt. Und das verbindet sie dann doch wieder mit den Helden vergangener Tage.

The first time you hear Lady Blue Beard, you get the impression the band was born in the wrong place at the wrong time. The way the lead singer reminisces of past giants such as David Bowie or Lou Reed with his extravagant style and unique voice. As though the band heralds from the good old days, when Pluto was everyone's favorite planet. Songs that evoke the best of the Stones from the Let It Bleed era, awash with ecstatic backing vocals à la The Kinks' Lola, not to mention songwriting that, to drop the B bomb, takes you again and again back to the Beatles. But Lady Blue Beard isn't your typical vintage band where you're sure, with every song, that you know the original. Much too distinct are the complex arrangements, too open the genre borders to jazz, neofolk and modern pop. And with no astonishment you read that the band's direct idols include Dirty Projectors, Feist and Michael Jackson. A unique band of the kind that only comes around once every few years ... another aspect that links them to the heroes of yesteryear.

Linup:

Picture Of An Elephant - Snippet

Press Reviews

From Imperfect Fifth

"If you appreciate the sounds of The Beatles, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Rolling Stones, Lady Blue Beard is the newest band to add to your collection. Songwriter, singer, and guitarist Klaus Fischer immaculately creates a folk-soul sound with the band’s debut album titled Picture of an Elephant. He flawlessly combines speaking, mild scat singing, and whistling with modern rhythms to create a polyphonic pop sound that radiates vitality and raw musicality. The musicality of each instrumentalist is showcased in each song through guitar breaks and vocal riffs. Picture of an Elephant manifests a brilliantly cohesive sound with each song driving the next, sounding similar yet impeccably powerful on their own. Lady Blue Beard excites listeners with the first track titled “Breaking Your Heart,” a catchy, high energy track that screams hit single..." Read more
