Full Of Light (Street Date: 19th of July 2013)
Second release by Pabst. At first sight Full Of Light
is not full of happiness. But its profound. The titletrack deals
with letting the things go, that we love, says Austrian
guitar-player Daniel Pabst. One main topic throughout the whole CD
is the trouble we have with farewells. Yes, the songs
on the CD are also about death and love. Pabst: Sometimes it
is not totally clear wether a song deals with love or anything else.How
can we cope with farewells? Maybe I am a sentimental guy, but
to me music is a good way to handle these issues. (Pabst) But
still: The CD is optimistic, not pessimistic. The titletrack features
the line: Im going into a room of light. While the
first Pabst-record was clinging to jazz-like, free structures, the
new CD is more song-based following the rules of classical songwriting
featuring the musicians Thomas Tannenberger and David Schweighart.
All in all Full Of Light is a deep going, sophisticated
record, on which the participating musicians had enough space to perform.
You can hear synthisizers and a carillon. The songs of Full
Of Light do not offer answers, but they take us for a little
journey and they (maybe) leave us behind differently.

reviews about the CD Songs For A Hopeless Minder:
A great record (Kurier)
The lyrics are upretentiously dealing with love and loss.
They are not melancholic, but deal with real pain. (falter)
