Lotte Kestner

Lotte Kestner is the moniker Anna-lynne Williams of Trespassers William has taken for her solo project, named after the heroine of Goethe's "Sorrow of Young Werther". She released her first album "China Mountain" under this alias a few months ago and I have been impressed every since.

If you're a fan of Trespassers William I think you will love Lotte as well. It's Anna-lynne's stunning poetry set to music, as Trespassers William is, except with less of the ambient qualities that the full band and elements of electronic sounds sometimes add. This is full on folk/shoegaze goodness with no fillers.

The album is available through

Labels: ,
