Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) In a word: AWESOME! On her 2012 debut album, then 28 years old Monika Roscher demonstrates amazing composer and arranger skills that don't leave anything to be desired. The arrangements are wonderfully lush and adventurous, sometimes getting close to the border of dissonance, while never falling apart. The music is tightly composed and arranged, without excessive space for experimentation, and during the reasonably short improvisations, the underlying music bed doesn't cease to remain interesting. While basically at home in jazz, the tracks are partially enriched with rock elements, thanks to the vocals and e-guitar contributions of Monika Roscher herself. Favorite track: Failure in Wonderland.

Monika Roscher Bigband München, Germany

Munich-based Artrock-Pop-Electro collective in the shape of a big band. Venturing deep into unknown sonic territory. Brazen birdsongs dissolve into delirious drumrolls. New Orleans splendor and blastbeats become blood brothers. Feathery vocal elegies and orchestral pathos rock each other to madness. And right in the middle the wildly pounding heart of a band creating its very own musical cosmos. ... more
