CD in 6 page digipack with additional 16 pages booklet with all lyrics. After three years Jännerwein have now released their second album "Nach der Sehnsucht". The band, now grown into a quartet, continue the musical journey they began with the predecessor "Abendluten" and leave the numerous subcultural constraints of neofolk behind them. The listener encounters touching, often melancholic and yearning, but nevertheless powerful folk music which transports the special atmosphere of the town of Salzburg and its surroundings, but without
descending into lederhosen triviality. The sound is dominated by various classical instruments like guitar, violin, accordion, recorder and percussion, as well as polyphonic chants. The musical diversity is paralleled by one of content. Alongside genuine lyric of the artists about longing, loss and
departure, adaptions of texts by related spirits like Gottfried Benn and Friedrich Nietzsche can be found. "My Prime Of Youth", the only English track, also features an elegiac and slightly martial collaboration with the Danish group "Die Weisse Rose".
As mentioned above, Jännerwein manage to step out of the pure
scene-related context, without renouncing their roots or loosing authenticity. The outcome of this process is of impressive beauty and timelessness, which will be appreciated by lovers of European-influenced folk, whatever their background might be.
