Yogi Lang: Colorful palette of songs!

Yogi Lang – A Way Out Of Here

Yogi Lang is probably best known as the vocalist and front man for RPWL, but he also have a solo carrier. Nine years ago he released the solo debut album No Decoder, and now it`s time for the second album titled A Way Out Of Here not only offers a colorful palette of art rock with its nine songs, but also illuminates the essentials of life with all obstacles, fears and rays of hope. A song-serving nice band, analog synthesizers and epic choirs provide the basis for Yogi Lang’s Gilmouresque voice.

The music and lyrics were all written by Yogi Lang, only Freedom Of The Day was written in cooperation with none lesser than bassist Guy Pratt (Pink Floyd, David Gilmour).

The first symphonic wall of sound is only a few seconds away: The track Move On is obviously audibly linked to the debut work, gently pulls the listener out of everyday life. There are many personal experiences in A Way Out Of Here, which the album wants to convey in peace, without hustle and bustle, without false pathos. Love often seems to offer a possible solution for problems. Love Is All Around and Freedom Of The Day believe in the ability of love and empathy to banish just about any problem to insignificance.

But what if this Way Out Of Here does not exist? In Shine On Me the protagonist cannot accept the loss of his partner, just ignores it and in the last of the nine tracks I’ll Be There For You we also find the last promise to stay with a loved one to the very end, if necessary, at any cost. This already ends a multi-layered and emotional journey through Yogi Lang’s world of thoughts.

German composer and musician Yogi Lang have also appeared on albums by Eureka, Blind Ego and Parzival’s Eye. The latter two solo projects by RPWL bandmates Kalle Wallner and Chris Postl respectively.

Yogi Lang took his first steps in music as a keyboard player and singer in bands at school. His growing love of analogue synthesizers then turned his bedroom into a bubbling, swirling spaceship. At the end of the 1980s, he gave up his social work studies and switched to a school of audio engineering. Working in studios had already increasingly become his main occupation. In those early days, Lang produced the band Violet District and their celebrated debut album Terminal Breath. Meeting the band’s guitarist Kalle Wallner and bass player Chris Postl was the basis for the band RPWL that they would later found.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (3949 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
