Reflection on one's own roots was fOr Max of Milland a logical consequence after his former rock band has dissolved. Because giving up was not an option for the 26-year-old. The decisive impulse brought the realization that the music is much easier to him by the hand when he focused on the language with which he grew up: the South Tyrolean dialect. "No other language can so honest and undisguised reflect sensations as their native language," the living and studying in Berlin musicians. In the course of the song ideas just poured out of him. Especially the title song of the album is "How do i actually kimm" in this context as a psychological theme. It is about the feeling of home in the romantic sense, to homesickness and ultimately to the universal find home in love. Max of Milland scored with his musical and lyrical mix of departure, earthiness and international pop influences acclaimed not only in the shortest time support slots for Sportfreunde Stiller and the sons of Mannheim, but also won the Bavarian Prize for Young Songwriter 2011th
The thought of home relatedness and Tyrolean dialect may cause occasional prejudice, we expect in the vernacular music first at regional accents phenomena that remain virtually misunderstood outside their home district. Not as Max von Milland. His songwriter pop is such internationally applied and marked in the melody understanding of the Beatles, Kings of Leon or Jack Johnson, that the dialect the whole work is not dominant, but it only gives an exotic color and a completely independent and novel overall feeling creates. "I think that people from other areas are quite grasp the meaning of my songs, even if they might not every word is familiar."
A good example of the quality of songwriting is the first single "Leg di ago". The title deals with the recognition of true happiness in a world that seems to consist only of advertising and noise and the self-deception opens the floodgates. Basically therefore to the essentials. Max of Milland are personal observations of everyday life always conscious meta level, thought-provoking, the personal world of experience is always dominant. Also, the folk rock love song "With you by my side" told without embellishment of love, friendship and the holding together in difficult times. How cinematics run the scenes of the song before the inner eye from to eventually open the door to a further highlight of the album to open - the melancholy comforting folk song "Often when you andersch denksch". Max of Milland found here, accompanied by skillful guitar playing, frank words for wounded souls. He asks to hear itself to faith and to his heart. this, incidentally, are recurring thoughts that keep coming up. Open to a certain extent the spiritual world of the artist.
The songs on this debut album sound through the Bank matured remarkably and the arrangements are brought impressively to the point. As producer he could therefor Olaf Opal (The Notwist, Sportfreunde Stiller, july, Madsen ...) delight. "I met with him in Berlin, we talked briefly and then immediately went into my apartment to listen to several hours of my songs. Although Olaf comes from Bochum and there is no connection to the South Tyrolean dialect, he has understood the recordings immediately and implemented optimally. I have a feeling that he has shown me exactly as I am. "
Enhanced with musicians like Simon Frontzek piano (Sir Simon Battle, Tomte), Alex Jezdinsky on drums (Naked Lunch) and Thomas "Slowey" Merkel on bass is Max von Milland with How do I actually kimm an album succeeded in that dialect boundaries will transcend. Because his music is great pop music with indie roots, sometimes euphoric, sometimes thoughtful, but especially of credible warmth. This will also be seen outside the Alpine regions.
