de la Mancha
The End* Of Music
Karaoke Kalk

De La Mancha consists of Jesper Lund and Dag Rosenqvist and they have taken their name from Cervantes novel Don Quijote. Their music is ethereal and fluid, recalling plenty of others but with its own unique flavor.

"Ursa Minor" is a dreamy meander with angelic vocals that sounds just right. "Under a Leaden Sky" is a shimmering, grand ballad that scrapes the sky. De La Mancha proves their talent here and then some. "Willow Lane" is a bare, piano-led reverie that they excel at. Its beauty is obvious and almost painful in its intensity.

"Land's End" is a gorgeous, lengthy track that readily leads towards the album's end. It's an astonishing album.

* What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.
