Brimming with dark, epic energy, Thomas Weber possesses a creativity and sense of innovation that is truly unique. Fearlessly extending into raucous and experimental bursts of static while sounding like a highly charged improv ensemble. Weber's playfulness and scope make Maander a truly engaging experience. It's his willingness to explore new sounds, moods and manners - to move well beyond expectations and into a new realm - that make Maander so interesting. Weber (a member of the revered Payola collective that also includes Tied & Tickled Trio, Notwist and Village of Savoonga among others) ably provides 13 tracks of unrivaled spontaneity, diversity and originality that serve to shake things up and turn the genre on its head.
