minco eggersman presents what will be his fifth solo-album RESERVOIRS under the guise of ME – where ‘solo’ is relative, considering the musical journey eggersman has made over the last few years, and which has landed him in a filmic niche all of his own.
RESERVOIRS takes its point of departure in ME’s more filmic work, but also unabatedly hints at the late 80’s, and could well figure in a stray episode of twin peaks. the typical, synthetic sounds of the yamaha DX7 synthesizer, the electric chorus (bass) guitars and the hammond melt together with the many acoustic instruments in a beautiful reverb unique for the reservoir in which ME recorded this album.
thematically, RESERVOIRS is about illusions, estrangement, dreams, nightmares and memories. the atmosphere of david lynch’s twin peaks series (one of ME’s favorites) is always close by, with the angelic voice of mariecke borger – who fills in more and more leads – starring as ME’s own julee cruise.
RESERVOIRS takes its time and creates its own space. RESERVOIRS forges the depth of introspection and the wideness of a gaze into the open into a work of art, that does not wear off by the rust of time, but rather finds its shape. a record that shares itself with its listeners, and that its listeners can become part of.
