i've covered dutch singer/songwriter kramies a couple times, and his latest release, 'forets antiques', is an intimate live recording from a performance in france. i've always enjoyed kramies' music, which is generally subtly produced, but i think that this warmly recorded live set, stripped to the most basic solo performance elements, shows off his talent for sad, romantic song craft best of all.
you can tell that the crowd is hanging on the performance. it includes one previously unreleased tune, called 'ireland'.
get it here.
