Carsten Pieper If anyone wonders about my "Spanish phase": I'm delving into Bandcamp's treasures looking for stuff for the next holiday-in-Spain-compilation... Anyways, chances are, if you like this one, Guadalupe Plata might not be your cup of tea :-)
Very idyosyncratic - progrock meets classic (including the soprano voice) meets jazz and folk. Sounds weird? It is, but it's great, nevertheless! Favorite track: Ra.
