How Do We Want to Live?


Artist: Long Distance Calling
Label: Inside Out Music
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 26 June 2020

Instrumental German rock band, Long Distance Calling, give us their latest LP, How Do We Want to Live?, released on the Inside Out Music label. Their last six albums gave us a vivid, artistic and personal history, which only began to scratch the surface...

How Do We Want to Live? contains ten new songs (52 min, 56 sec) delivered in the form of an ongoing narrative. This is futuristic electronic music with a human soul. In many ways it feels like a modern Pink Floyd album in both its scope and delivery.

This is an album that is almost impossible to play out of order, as the entire project is the sum of its parts. Take one element out and it loses a little bit of its spirit further down the line.

Overall, this is a beautifully constructed album, wonderfully produced too. It's also one that gets better the more time you spend with it. Well worth investing some serious time getting to know it properly.
