Thomas Nöla et son Orchestre returns with a trip through the church rectory and out into arctic carnivals.
The ever-expanding orchestra - still featuring the female guiles of Karen S. Langlie (cello) and Melissey Castevet (backing vocals) - includes the new additions of Gerard Paul Powers (bass), Eric Dahlman (trumpet) and guest appearances from members of O Paradis and Comando Suzie.
With the kraut disco of "Tierlexikon", the space-age ragtime of "In The Poppy Fields" or the piano and Hammond-laden "Iron Gate", the discerning listener will be driven to bouts of ecstasy.
Even includes two covers: the swing hit "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön" (Charlie and his Orchestra), and the acoustic "Sunday With Jacky" (The Can't/Stanton Meadowdale).
