EDITORS’ NOTES

Milky Chance vocalist Clemens Rehbein describes the sentiment behind Mind the Moon highlight “The Game” to Apple Music as “feeling like you don’t know how to manage your relentlessly changing life. One moment you’re building something you’re at peace with, and then, with one change, the stability is all gone. It’s probably easier to learn to swim than build your own island.”

In the last half decade, Rehbein and multi-instrumentalist DJ Philipp Dausch have seen more change than most: Their 2013 single “Stolen Dance” was a guileless blend of coffee-shop guitars and warm electronics that made them unexpected global stars. On Mind the Moon, their third LP, the German duo succeeds by becoming even more fluid, incorporating sounds from Portugal (“Fado”) and South Africa (the gorgeous “Eden’s House,” which features vocals from Ladysmith Black Mambazo) as well as contributions from Australian singer-songwriter Tash Sultana (“Daydreaming”) and nomadic Belgian producer Témé Tan (“Rush”). It’s leftfield pop for a generation with little interest in the conventions or boundaries of genre.

Best cohesive album to date. I overall enjoy more songs and the entire album from the beginning to the end. They keep getting better with age, bringing something fresh, but keeping their originality that we all enjoy.
More upbeat than their past two albums, which gives it more repeat listens. Doesn’t quite have the raw and solemn vibes of Sadnecessaary, but again is another step up in quality of the blend of instruments and sounds that neither Sad. or Blossom had.
“The Game” is the classic, in my opinion, head single of the album that compare to Stolen dance and Cocoon, and how they stook out of their track lists. Bringing that unexplainable body urging groove.

Great collab in “Daydreaming” Tash just fits right in with the sweet contrasting voice in the middle of the song, much more natural than Teme Tan’s copy and paste solo in “Rush”.

“Scarlet Paintings” and “Fallen” are some hidden jems throughout the album that didnt make it to the list of singles but definitely could of, and don’t forget the killer hook in “ We didn’t make it to the Moon”

Whole album ends with the Inspiring track that is “Window” which is aging like a fine wine, better with time, where you can really appreciate its beauty, black and white to “Edens house” but both bring a similar energy in the album.
