You have to hear his voice

With a voice like that you can't go wrong? Not true. It could be very much wrong – just because she is so sensational. Fabian Altstötter has such a delicate, charming Popstimme. Warm, deep, soft and yet also male, if, you like to think in such categories.

The restless Vibrato is reminiscent partly of Anohni, the Transgender singer of Antony and The Johnsons, which is only a contradiction if you see such gender categories ... the previous sentence. Just as the quiet coquetry of a young Bryan Ferry out, you could hear, or the Tremor of Mark Hollis of Talk Talk, when you transpose it one octave down. Even with Nick Cave, Fabian Altstötter has been compared. What it means: You have to hear his voice.

He is doing everything right

there is now plenty of opportunity to "Love Is", the solo debut album, has released the 28-year-old German under his new artist pseudonym of young stötter. Old he is not Yes, and a little secret is to stay in the Pop. Do you pronounce the name "Young-Schtötter"? Or is it "boys-Tötter"? The latter sounds a bit brutal for its music . And that is why you are right again.

The Album "Love Is" with his voice anyway, nothing wrong, just everything right. The singing perched on the work – on those Songs, the sound of the acoustic guitar a little angefolkt, and just on the Songs that are angejazzt with wischendem Snare broom and removed the top frame of the piano. Some Songs to turn right, it goes in the direction of desert rock or desert Blues, in the noble variant. There is music out of silence, seems to be intended, to come out of silence. What is the meaning of: Every Sound, every Echo is set so that for Altstötters vocals, there's plenty of room.

Because it fits also, if the first Song "Silence" means. There is a silence in this room, everyone feels uncomfortable to you, sings Altstötter in loose Translation. The rescue in the silence is, of course, you can't repeat it often enough: his voice.

The difference to Sizarr is striking. So the Trio was released, with the Altstötter a few years ago two albums. Sizarr played very ambitious Einflusspop, with many quotations – Punk, electro, Glam Rock, Hip-Hop. A little bit of everything. You listen to this music today, one cannot avoid the impression that at the time of the trial of three very young and Pop euphorisierter friends was to leave the boring German province from which they come, and make it equal to the very top. And the not realized then, but even that you have actually a lot to different interests and tastes and little sense of how they keep their Songs from falling Apart. There's also Fabian Altstötters voice didn't help much.

His solo album "Love Is" is the exact opposite: It is a total, relaxed concentration radiates. It is pre-electrified with Songs like "Wound Wrapped in Song" or "To Be Someone Else", it surges, and ebbing again. It was produced by Max Rieger, as the lead vocalist and guitarist of the Band The nerve is known and in the Studio a lot of sound architecture and the song static is understood.

With his Look, he is in line with the style that currently dominates the scene, the men's fashion.

You can still remain the same in the title song. Starts sweet, what concerns the melodies, and warm, with the lines about sin, physical love (the word Sex would be much too hard) and hugs. But then, a feedback drama los thumps, for the last 60 seconds, out of the blue, with the toughest of shots from the Snare Drum. Fantastic.

young stötter sounds not a little to his German homeland. But to locate dreamy, worldly, and hard. This is due to the fact that he sings his flowery yet unpretentious lyricism with an accent. He sounds like he was at home in the native language of the Pop, much more than anywhere else. So he manages to get there, where Sizarr wanted to be always in the spheres of the major high Pop.

Even his new Look is good: Altstötter wears his blond hair in a sassy jagged edges on the Pony, fetish-uniform earrings, and his flap stay shirts the top sometimes, a little bit unbuttoned, so the Tattoo can be out from the hairless chest. Just so. With this Look he is one hundred percent in line with the style ideal that dominated in the international men's fashion for some time. The slightly swashbuckling, post-adolescent Boy – you can see and admire in the English media as "Fantastic" or "Arena Homme+". And Yes, one would hope that such media start to his music.

The name of Popheroen such as Nick Cave and Bryan Ferry were in the beginning of this hymn. Approached to see whether he feel a spiritual closeness to older men in Pop, he answers the Popmagazin "The weather": "No, I want to distance myself. The usually have shitty views." A very sympathetic attitude.
