The songs of Erna Rot lure again and again with unexpected twists and capture their audience. (Jazz thing) Erna Rot likes two English words, to which she has dedicated a whole album. Not without reason, do they merge German with English and Erna Rot with jazz and chanson. "Angst & Weltschmerz", the ACT-debut of the Berlin-born singer-songwriter, combines sounds that seem to come from the deepest shores of the American southern states with European songwriting traditions. But what makes this album so special are the lyrics: melancholy, serious songs of loss and forgiveness, and gently hovering songs about the heaviness of life, facilitated by everyday encounters.
