Von Poehl, Peter
Going To Where The Tea Trees Are
(World's Fair)

Of Swedish & German descent, Peter von Poehl's talent was quickly realized by the great Frenchman Bertrand Burgalat, who quickly snatched him up, utilizing his talent as a session player as well as for a side boy band project. It was within these experiences that von Poehl flourished and became interested in pursuing his own thing, much to the enthusiasm of Burgalat. A maturely somber (think Death Vessel) title track leads off a truly stunning debut LP. The folky "Tooth Fairy" will have you smiling and cranking the volume, thinking about that last Fleet Foxes gig you went to. Atmospheric vocal harmonies and catchy choruses don't hurt the songs either. A sharply witty, orchestral-pop record, Going to Where the Tea Trees Are is an absolute masterwork ... and it's his FIRST proper record! HOLY $%^#!!! "Virgin Mountains" leaves a cascade of dancing brass and horns as he reveals, "I believe, I believe that I'm in love", as if his lineage traces along the same root system as Eric Matthews. "A Broken Skeleton Key" is as appealing as anything this side of the exceptional Zombies. I can go on and on with superlatives and comparisons but I will leave you one piece of advice, pick this up if you like a little Moet with your pop music. Highly recommended!
