The World of Dust – Gaman (CD)

Gaman is the 8th album by Dutch experimental folk artist The World of Dust. The title is Japanese for ‘enduring the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity’ – Stefan Breuer covers weighty topics through a personal lens while in a 100% acoustic, slowcore setting. Thus, the album’s eleven songs address the struggles of a young father and artist in the midst of a climate, economic ánd health crisis. Breuer explores these ideas through a mixture of wit and melancholy. Guitars, wind instruments, harmonium and percussion provide an intimate musical ecosystem in which Breuer’s baritone thrives.

Reviews

The press has certainly been very positive too so far:

Luminous Dash: “Gaman sounds very universal and deserves the necessary attention outside our national borders”
Gonzo (circus): “A perfect balance between his small songs and elaborate arrangements with an eye for the smallest detail. One of the best records that fans of Red House Painters or I am Oak can pick up this year.”
Here Comes The Flood: “superb slowcore that digs deep”
Proglog Afterglow: “an album that encourages you to reflect but also to dream away”

The album will be released on LP and CD by Tiny Room Records (Netherlands) and Lousy Moon Records (Germany), and on CD by Moorworks (Japan). It makes it undeniably his most elaborated album to date.

About the artist

The World of Dust is Dutch artist, musician, and manager of Tiny Room Records, Stefan Breuer. With this project he represents a shadowy universe of forlorn beauty, a lo-fi bedroom pop experiment shrouded in elemental imagery and laden with ennui. Influenced by artists such as Mount Eerie and Sparklehorse, The World of Dust is intimate and wistful, mining a similarly rich emotive seam to Norwegian slowcore legends The White Birch.
