Herbstlaub isn't an artist. Herbstlaub is a melody. There are many unreleased melodies of a kaleidoscopic past, which isn't one. This is just one of them. The continuation is yours.

Throughout the last five years I always felt that in the tracks, sketches and ideas that I haven't released, the most is being touched what Herbstlaub could be. That may uphold why I enjoy the tension which is in between two releases the most, it also clarifies why I consider Herbstlaub as »melōidía«, singing, chanting motion which is perceived as an entity, instead of being that entity.

»Ich singe in einer Sprache, die es nicht gibt, ich spreche in Gesängen, die nicht sind.«

Retrospects always tend to aweigh presence. Older songs in order to allow present tracks. Before publishing my latest album 'Seems Like Time To Remember, Seems Like The Moment To Forget' I felt drawn towards some unreleased tracks, which resemble more instrumental chanting and restless layers of Herbstlaub. 'New Insight From Forgotten Clouds / Forgotten Hints From New Memories' anticipates the newest album that will be much more drifting and electronic just because this one takes back beats and energy.

The A-side are songs from an album that I never released between 'Streets Aren't For Dreaming Youth' and 'Our Love Was Only Half Forgotten'. 'A forevever, goodbye!' is an example of a track that I occasionally played ever since 2011 in some livesets and sighs that cloudlike moving, repetitive mantraesque that Herbstlaub relish: a light touch, tender tremblings and a voice which is touching the poetry between language and singing, sometimes pupils which are elderberryblack, and than an awaking in raspberry light, your tangle shiver.
