“While “Landlieder & Frömdländler” is Fräkmündt’s most diverse and refined album so far, it perfectly exemplifies the ensemble’s odd, rustic style. The musical spectrum ranges from thoughtful reflections on nature across wistful renditions of folk tales to drinking songs performed with Helvetian zest for life. With this, the musicians skilfully balance serious content and subtle humour, which makes their music compelling and tinged with Swiss local colour like no other.”
