ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What reviewers say about "Above & Below"...

Waitsian vocals and melodious guitar

'Harvester" opens A. P. Meister'S latest offering, “Above and Below”. It is a melodic, guitar picking number with drawling, deep vocals which set up the tone of the whole album. Meister is a singer/songwriter who has previously explored a myriad of musical styles but has settled on this bluesy/folk genre which was a love of his from his early years. Lyrically dark and mysterious, he explores his music through guitar, picking and strumming and creating a gentle, restrained sometimes sombre, atmosphere of the smoky bar room of yesteryear.

He is a talented exponent of the guitar, both acoustic and electric, but a cursory search for him on the net proves tantalisingly difficult. His history, other than on his own site, is sparse. I’m guessing he is Swedish, but this is not evident in his vocals. He gives the impression of a Southern guitar-picking bluesman. And a very good impression it is too. “How the Story Goes” is a beautifully crafted number with languorous, dreamy vocals. “High and Low” is a sensitively performed tune with undertones of a John Martyn vocal slur. There are some extended pieces on here - “Stray” is a nine minute offering, whilst “How the Story Goes” and “Levitation” clock up over seven minutes apiece. “Stray” meanders into a guitar solo that wanders and weaves. All of them are unobtrusive, melodic pieces. The whole collection is exactly that; though don’t take that as a negative. Subtlety has its place. Sometimes you just want to lie back, relax and listen to something tuneful. This is it.

(Paula Cooke, AmericanaUK)
