Markus Mehr‘s Off may be his most accomplished to date. And if you sense any hesitation it is only because of the bewildering talent and depth he displays across all 4 of his releases. If we take a different tact then we could say that Off is a beautiful and haunting distillation of all that went before it. All the grandeur, all the subtleties, all the melodic immersion and all carefully constructed and conducted noise. Off is 42 minutes of uninterrupted (literally) sonic and melodic immersion and engagement. It gives as much as it asks of its listeners and then some. And we’re not the only ones that have such thoughts! Check out this fantastic review of Off over at the always excellent Textura and then step over to DOA for this excellent review by the equally excellent Jon Gordon.
Off is available now in digital formats and as a limited edition custom package CD through the Hidden Shoal Store. CD stock is limited so if you are interested the sooner option is better than the later option.
