German Error Message is an excellent artist. While he is a new discovery for me, I'm nonetheless impressed by the stunning atmosphere and melodies that he can create, I mean, just look at that album artwork; Even that in itself is intriguing! The Lifting has a lot of emphasis on subtle warm and soft arrangements hiding around in loud, sorta sloppy sounds. But that doesn't slow the album down in the slightest, German Error Message pulls the album forward with energy and emotion with his hurt-filled vocals and piano leads that occupy the majority of tracks. It's a great album to spin late at night when you just want to kick back and feel a little down.
