Contrary to the first assumption, the Berlin chansonnier Karl Neukauf has nothing to do with the grocery chain of the same name. Nevertheless, he takes you on a journey through a colorful world through his songs, rummages thematically on various shelves and places special emphasis on the small print of the (food) packaging (s). In his shopping cart there is a can of Knef, a pound each of Jürgens and Lindenberg, a high-proof Waits, a slice of Mey next to 156 grams of Newman, a tube of Lanegan and a Stiege Niedecken. The sonorous bass voice and the sometimes filigree, sometimes striking piano melodies transform the supermarket flair into a warm-hearted corner shop where you still have time to talk about small and / or world-changing things. Karl Neukauf sets these observations to music in lively and thoughtful musical postcards, which tell stories lying on a white flokati carpet in front of a dark green plush sofa.
