Erdbeerschnitzel returns for his first original material since last year's Tender Leaf LP, adding the Delsin label to his respected discography with the Cushion EP for their house focused series. The three cuts here are very much in line with the Erdbeerschnitzel approach pioneered on that aforementioned album for Mirau and the preceding releases on 3rd Strike Records, focusing on a winning brand of colourfully disjointed house music. The brilliantly soaring title track sets the tone, taking a gentle but firm drum pattern and slowly unfurling gossamer layers of flute and string in a heart-rending harmony. "Am Bossele" sees Keiling weave vocal snippets deeper and deeper into the snappy percussion and playful spirals of synth whilst B Side hugger "Crossroads" is Erdbeerschnitzel at his glowering, expansive best; some nine minutes long, the mood remains consistently luxuriant, whether it's cascading arpeggios or effervescent chord stabs setting the tone.
