Roter Mohn

Roger Matura


More Original than the Original
A cover album like no other: On Roter Mohn, Roger Matura turns John Lennon’s “Jealous Guy” into an ambient ballad propelled by softly gyrating kalimbas, while “Get it On” by T. Rex rises like a psychedelic phoenix from the ashes of feedback and multilayered vocals. Whereas his previous releases sported a warm vintage sound, Matura had something more current in mind this time: All three albums build self-contained worlds from elements of electronica, acoustic instruments and his recognisable voice.
The result is remarkable: Some of Roger Matura’s cover versions sound more personal than the original songs.
