Nomad Frequencies – New album out now!

September 6, 2015

John’s second solo album ‘Nomad Frequencies’ was released in September 2015 and has been greeted by some fantastic reviews already…

Igloomag:

“Once again, with his distinctive combination of adventurous ways of playing instruments, unconventional methods of sound design, boldness and honesty, Lemke has created a truly absorbing piece of music that ferociously yet gracefully defies classification. This is the work of a talented musician who constantly moves forward driven by curiosity and passion. It’s important music, untouched by trends and free of copycatting and banality.”

Stationary Travels:

‘All of this sonic craftsmanship and experimentation might sound fascinating in a cerebral way, but what makes Lemke’s albums so captivating is that he grounds them with a brilliant sense of pure rhythm and melody. Tease the layers apart and you will find a dizzying array of ideas and components of sound, but the music can still be enjoyed on a fundamental and visceral level. The reggae lilt of the tuneful ‘At the Dust Boutique’, the rousing piano driven melody and synth swirls of ‘Vessel’, the exhilarating ambient/rock/jazz roller coaster ride of ‘Corroder’, the skittering percussion juxtaposed with moody atmospherics in ‘Grass Will Grow’ – these are all as infectious as they are inventive. And ‘To Let It Go’ and ‘Passenger’ provide the listener with a sense of resolution as much as a sense of beauty in their deeper shades. This is music your intellect and your limbic system can both appreciate.’
