Lestat Vermon - “The River” (Official Video) (by Lestat Vermon)
The first is large cutlery aside. Lestat Vermon is the solo project of the Arctic Circle 18 - and Birnam Woods of guitarist Philip Makolies from Dresden, who now released his debut album “Clouds” the sound aesthetic design to his previous musical work. No bombastic rock, not a wild snorting orchestra but eleven simple, self-sufficient song on the old nylon string guitar (which he was then eleven years was the first guitar lessons), purified, redeemed, and crisscrossed at most times of occasional piano melodies and subtle horns and choirs. Since so you can be almost glad that the musician once while skateboarding broke his ankle and was thus forced to employ sheer eingegipster boredom intense with acoustic guitar and cheap Vermona organs: the (then) unconscious birth of the project Lestat Vermon.
