End Music Discovery: Nils Frahm "Says" Video Is Trippy, Man.

Jan 14th | categories: Music, Music Video

Germany went and produced another rad piano composer. Nils Frahm, pals with our friends at Decibel Festival, played here in a theatre during said fest in the fall. Like an idiot, I didn't go. Well, Herr Frahm must like Seattle as he booked that Lufthansa ticket back to America.

In a city where the marijuana is legal, I'm surprised that the fat, chorused synthesizer tones, delicately placed against the staccato piano rhythms and swells for days doesn't land him a gig playing somewhere brontosaurus big in our rainy city. I'm also a dreamer.

Though I just said he deserves a bigger space to perform in, it's hard to think of a better venue than The Triple Door to host this:

Usually, out of some stupid, contrived competitive feud with "the other guys" I wouldn't post the video from another media outlet, but this gorgeous Frahm performance at KEXP is too good not to share.
