ABSAGE - Son Of The Velvet Rat

Support: Inga Lynch

SON OF THE VELVET RAT  ist das Projekt des österreichischen Songwriters Georg Altziebler. Seine mittlerweile 5 Alben und diverse Mini-Lps erhielten nicht nur hierzulande außergewöhnliche Kritiken - auch international genießt der Mann aus Graz einen hervorragenden Ruf.

Das Album 'Dorado' wurde unter der Regie von Joe Henry produziert und erschien 2017 auf Fluff&Gravy/Mint400. Zusammenarbeiten mit Ken Coomer (Ex-Wilco), Kristof Hahn (Swans), Richard Pappik (Element of Crime) oder Alt-Country-Queen Lucinda Williams belegen zudem SotVR's internationalen Ruf. Peter Jesperson (Ex-Manager The Replacements) zu SotVR: „Beautiful and somber music, their lyrics are pure poetry.“

Seit einigen Jahren lebt und arbeitet Altziebler den überwiegenden Teil des Jahres in der kalifornischen Wüste bei Joshua Tree.

Live ist SotVR in verschiedenen Besetzungen zu sehen und zu hören: Solo, im Duo mit Keyboarderin Heike Binder und als full band mit Muck Willmann (A)  oder Joel Patterson (US) am Schlagzeug, Albrecht Klinger (A) / Eric Mc Cann (US) am Bass, Kolja Radenkovic (A)  an Trompete, Flügelhorn oder Gitarre und Gar Robertson (US) an Gitarre, Lapsteel und Mandoline. Nicht nur die verschiedenen Besetzungen garantieren spannende Live-Performances, tatsächlich verändern die Songs ständig Sound und Atmosphäre. Vor allem im Quintett changiert die Band zwischen fragilem Neo-Folk-Chanson und rauem Garage-Rock.

PRAISE FOR DORADO:

“These ten songs roll on and on like time and space don’t mean a thing, gripping even with slow tempos and weary bones. “None of us are free/ I’m not without you/ You’re not without me/ That’s what love must be,” one song goes; it’s a treacherous entanglement, and they make it sound sad and comforting at the same time.” —Josh Hurst— [02/24/17]—Full article

"Dorado is a dark trip into the American psyche.” —Blabber 'n' Smoke, Paul Kerr­­ (Glasgow)— [3/21/2017] Full article

 

"DORADO showcases superlative songwriting talents. Georg Altziebler and Heike Binder have created a work of sprawling, melancholy beauty."—Northern Sky Magazine (GB), Liam Wilkinson— [3/7/2017] Full article

 

"A strange, dark intriguing album throughout - destined to keep you on tenterhooks until the end."  Acoustic magazine, Julian Piper (GB)— [3/8/2017]

 

"The bottom line here is that these folks are excellent songwriters and with the backing band (and their own musical talents) Dorado is the kind of Grade A music that doesn’t come along very often so soak it all in when it does."—Dagger Zine—[3/6/2017] Full article

 

"Dorado contains songs that will slowly but surely crawl under the skin. Austria, twelve points!" —Music that needs Attention, Theo Volk (NL)— [3/12/2017] Full article

"Haunting and soulful"—Folkradio UK, Mike Davies [2/17/2017] Full article 

 

"One of the most wonderfully personal, beautiful and difficult albums I've ever heard."—FATEA, Rudie Humphrey—[2/16/17]Full article 

 

" Dorado is truly the first great album of 2017.." —Eleni P. Austin, Coachella Valley Weekly— [2/1/2017] Full article

 

"...charged with emotion and primed to deliver a heady mix of haunting lyrics, smooth-as-silk melodies, aching vocals and poetry." —Tom Franks, FolkWords— [1/17/2017] Full article

" Mesmerizing!" [1/28/16] —Magnet Magazine Full article 

 

"Excellent European take on Americana." —Jeremy Searle, Americana UK— [1/12/17] Full article

 

"They pull together spots of light and hope in the midst of a great ragged emptiness and allow these bright moments to shape the rhythmic momentum that propels the song forward." [11/25/16]—Joshua Pickard , Nooga Full article

 

"Imagine a late Dylan voice, maybe Tom Waits or Nick Cave mixed with the songscape of Brel and Brassens and it will put you in the right territory." —Mike Wistow, Folking— [1/17/17] Full article

 

"Georg Altziebler’s distinctively deep smoky voice carries the melody on its journey, as the falling sweat seems to evaporate before ever hitting the cracking dirt." [11/25/16]—Mad Mackerel Full article

 

[ PAST RECORDS ]

 

“SotVR's songs are thoughtful with deep rootsy arrangements that allow for flexible flourishes from the players." —David Hintz, FolkWorld

 

“Velvet Rat’s sound is where punk rock, folk tunes, and French chansons intersect.”—Maggie Downs, Palm Springs Life

 

“There is a deep and soulful purity to their music. Georg is not just a lyricist. He is a songwriter’s songwriter. There is a haunting beauty in each and every song that stimulates intrigue.”—Lisa Morgan, Coachella Valley Weekly

 

“There‘s some dark majesty at work here."—Logo Magazine

 

“Largely beautiful piano and throaty, smokey vocals...”—Collected Sounds

 

“Heartbreakingly beautiful, slow, minimal folk." —KZSU, Radio Stanford

 

“Introspective and cathartic European folk music."—Delusions of Adequacy

 

“SotVR paint a landscape that echoes the dark romanticism of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake…stark imagery amid themes of love, loss, and longing.”—Performer Magazine

 

"SotVR’s words emanate directly from his heart and their honesty and urgency give the songs a gorgeous hue. Knife sharp lyrics contrast warm melody.”—Sponic Magazine

“There’s a band from Austria of all places who we heard here. It’s a husband and wife team called Son of the Velvet Rat. He’s got this great sexy, gravelly voice. He reminds me of that a little bit – this Dylanesque thing. It’s beautiful melodies and sort of this Nick Drake, Mark Lanegan kind of thing. I freaked out when I saw them at this little place called the Hotel Cafe.” —Lucinda Williams, Stereo Subversion
