locktender – friedrich LP (cheapo)
record sleeve has severely bent/donged corner(s)
Four years after the release of “Rodin”, Locktender from Cleveland, Ohio, are back with their third studio full-length. While the previous albums “Kafka” and “Rodin” focused on the works of Franz Kafka and Auguste Rodin, Locktender are staying on the path by this time reinterpretating the works of the German Romantic landscape painter Caspar David Friedrich. So the pervading themes are sadness and melancholy, reflection and resolve. The band’s flexibility with their style allows them to accurately weave their way through complicated emotions that are really and truly captivating.
