Acoustic Garden Releases Newest Album “Mediterranean Mind”

Acoustic Garden is releasing their newest album, “Mediterranean Mind.” The record is a full-length collection of originals as well as cover tunes that have made the crew of acoustic artisans famous in Europe. The music is extremely well orchestrated and features some of the best vocals in music anywhere, and indeed from any time.

Acoustic Garden have a variety of sounds, including a folk-inspired, classic-rock tone that reaffirmed their stardom in 2010, when they won the annual Christmas Song Contest sponsored by German radio station SWR1 with their rendition of “Under the Christmas Tree.” Yet this was only a refocusing of the spotlight on them, as Acoustic Garden had already had hits on Top-20 radio music lists going back to 1998 with their cover of Culture Beat's “Rendezvous.” In 1995, lead guitarist Frank Bülow's cover of “Inside Out” was reproduced and distributed on a Bravo Hits Sampler album rather than the original track.

The band's tradition of covering great music goes back to their original inspiration, the legendary but now-defunct MTV program, “MTV Unplugged,” which featured live shows of popular alternative rock n' roll bands playing their set on acoustic instruments. The show proved extremely popular, spawning many live recordings that would go on to be some of the featured acts' most well-known and best-loved work, and Acoustic Garden was born at first in imitation of this, just for fun. The band has been long since writing and performing their own work, however. Bülow writes of this:

“Way too long I was on the road, just playing the songs of others... Now I'm come along with my own songs, and with a band the likes of which has never been seen nor heard before!”

Obviously, Bülow's enthusiasm is high, but it's not just high – it's also infectious, and it's not just infectious – it's also extremely appropriate. Acoustic Garden are expert musicians of the highest and most laudable taste in music. Every song is their own, covered or not, and this, their newest record, is definitely worth any music fan's listening time.
