My Map 04:05
I left the street and took the secret way trough the lonely woods along the worry stream and for a while I was lost yeah I lost the trace but you know I always find my way home, home I have my map still in my pocket it will guide my through , it will help me back I lost my way in a desert place next to high voltage pylons next to a tiny stream and for a while I was lost yeah I lost the trace but you know I always find my way home, home I have my map still in my pocket it will guide my through , it will help me back

about

"There's this light, airy quality to Present Paradox's music, somewhat akin to vintage Talk Talk, that manages to sound both psychedelic and emotive. This sings to my soul, as it likely will for anyone that thinks a lot, may be prone to bouts of melancholy, but also sees the brightness and positivity in life." J. Simpson , theevengrounds.com

"My Map only runs about twenty minutes, but it feels like it takes you on an hour long ride. For fans of ambient alternative music with a dark edge, Present Paradox is exactly what you need. This is not to say that the album doesn’t have have a light feel mixed in, however the lightness is saturated with emotion that can equally break you out of the melancholy of life. Expressing intense emotion with a deft hand is the easiest way to describe what Present Paradox has given us, something that may not always be easy to listen to but it certainly will make you think and feel." M. Orange, 24ourmusic.net

"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"
