Kristóf Hajós: Geography

Hungarian singer Kristóf Hajós sings about feeling at home and being at a loss simultaneously on his new album Geography. Now based in Amsterdam he has been all over the place and finding his bearings after yet another move can be time consuming and nerve wrecking. Resorting to build one's own Imaginary World can offer some solace and dreaming of exploring outerspace (Intergalactic) might work as well. Antoehr version of There Are No Mountains was previously released as a single, but the new. slightly shorter version about living in a flat country works even better.

He sings softly, forcing the listener to hang unto each word - imagine Leonard Cohen using an upper register that comes to crooning. With like-minded Dutch musician Stefan Breuer once again pitching in with tailormade songs for him to sing solo - Princess - and as a duet - Plenty of Light - it looks that Hajós is not going anywhere else soon. He is a very welcome addition to the lo-fi folk underground in the Netherlands.
