No Ninja Am I: We Share a Dream

photo: Mirjam van der Most

Sander van Munster of Dutch indie folk project No Ninja Am I created an intimate and in the moment mood by recording his guitar and vocals in one take. It shines through all the tracks on his new EP We Share a Dream. His less is more approach works best with Swim Another Sea on which he plays a deceptively simple rhythm guitar and added a few swirls of extra guitar.

When he goes for a wider sonic palette his songs gain depth. Coen Hamelink's trumpet and Gijs Kerkhoven's viola Magnolia, but it is Hamelink's inspired Flügelhorn on the exquisite slow song Dance Dance that takes this collection of tender, hopeful songs to the next level. Van Munster is a dreamer and he likes to share them through his music. We Share a Dream does what it says on the tin. Open it and the contents will make the world a better place for as long as the music is playing.

We Share a Dream is a self-released EP. Buy it (digital, CD) from his website.
