Sitting on the beach, content to just watch the waves, is simply a joy. And the happy factor is multiplied several times at Buhne 16, the legendary beach-side bistro in Kampen on the island of Sylt. Right on time for the start of the 2012 season, we proudly present the fourth edition of our BUHNE 16 - on the beach series. A luscious lineup of tracks from relaxed Pop to no-frills Singer-Songwriter style ? a mix that ebbs and flows. This is a musical invitation to bury your feet in the warm sand and let your mind wander.
Buhne 16 ? both the location and the CD give us that something special ? that precious bit of bliss and serenity that sadly we are missing far too often. Sometimes we might feel like Californian troubadour Brett Dennen in his song ?Crazy?; the opening track on the CD is about those everyday things that can drive you up the wall. A good thing that you can leave those things behind you at Buhne 16 ? and get more in the mood for something like Donavon Frankenreiter?s ?It Don?t Matter?: just take everything down a gear or two. And with a groove as smooth as the sound of the distant tide, the compilation leaves you little choice ? you automatically switch into beach mode. Insider tips like You & You, Sean Hayes and Beautiful Girls frontman Mat McHugh are given ideal accompaniment in the shape of genre greats like the Kings of Convenience, Jehro and Donavon Frankenreiter.
And the hours just fly by ? You watch the birds flying by in style and think how great it would be to be a seagull, soaring across the azure skies and plummeting down into the water with aplomb. ?This is what I?m into: a bit of beach, ocean and music ? A home from home I?d always be happy to be at.?
And for those times when you can?t make it there, BUHNE 16 - on the beach 4 helps to compensate.
