Acute 02:16
I can't hear the bleep of the machines anymore I try to smile I try to say it's alright it's alright let's get home let's get something to eat let's get some sleep let's say it's alright it's alright

Let me sleep 03:38
In the middle of the mountain there is a little treasure which we don't open because it's gonna take all our pleasure In the middle of the sea there is a little treasure which we don't open because it's gonna take all our pleasure Let me sleep Let me dream and when I wake up it will be alright In the middle of the sea there lays a little treasure but I've been told not to open it because it's gonna take all our pleasure In the middle of the mountain there is a little treasure which we don't open because it's gonna take all our pleasure

Midnight Fog 04:18
I'm getting lost in the midnight fog I'm getting lost in the midnight fog Splinter of glass on the ground Splinter of glass on the ground I need your hands to get through I need your hands to get through The train has passed the left-hand points there is no way back no way back everything is different now The train has passed the left-hand points there is no way back no way back everything is different now I'm slipping on the surface I'm slipping on the surface I need you help me up I need you help me up there is no way back (repeated) back (repeated)

Goodbye 03:49
There is a little left to hold and to cling to the pictures you painted and the photos we have taken memories, memories arrive with the wind and depart memories, memories arrive with the wind and depart I search you on Friday and I search you on Sunday but the only place to find you is in our memories and dreams dreams So this is how we saying goodbye so let us say saying goodbye

Appletrees 04:40
Apple trees and strawberries sleep well under the fire two pillows under your neck you sail to your harbor on misty morning a walk under the branches two cups of coffee there is nothing wrong Apple trees and strawberries sleep well under the fire two pillows under your neck you sail to your harbor on misty morning a walk under the branches two cups of coffee there is nothing wrong Apple trees (repeated)

about

" I, for one, enjoyed these weightless auras immensely, from my Christmas light citadel in the burgeoning gloom, as if Kleinekottmann were plucking directly onto my ventricles. An honest and open work, delivered with excellent musicianship and great production. Check it out, in the sunset. " J. Simpson - theevenground.com


"The gorgeous tones and delayed whispers of the title track make it sound pleasingly like an ambient remix of Beak>’s ‘Mono’, while the plinky ‘Let Me Sleep’ and gently pulsating ‘Midnight Fog’ show a similar talent for subtle compositions. The whole EP seems to drift by in a dreamlike state" Kier Wiater Carnihan - the-monitors.com

"The Acute EP is a beautiful piece of work – perfect for a quiet evening at home, glass of something red, lights dimmed, fingers rolling."
Josh - bitethebelt.com

"Like listening to a mix of Philip Glass and Radiohead.
Truly breathtaking." Phil Russell - alittlebitofsol.blogspot.de

about

Present Paradox Germany

"Dortmund based German artist David Kleinekottman who is clearly as prolific as he is talented. Ambient, experimental, art house and electronica in scope and influenced by Brian Eno, Elbow and Radiohead. I’d say those signposts mark Present Paradox out for closer inspection"
