German singer/songwriter Maximilian Hecker received some public and media attention over the last ten years (mostly in Europe), but random music lovers aren’t familiar with his work. They really should. Infectious music that’s actually intelligent coupled with such a distinct voice aren’t very common these days. Polyester and Summer Days In Bloom demonstrate it beautifully:

Lyrics

Touching flowers with your scream
Meeting sweets
She smiles like cream
When your hair hides melting grace
Worn out minds won’t touch your face
I am leaning far, too far above the ice
So I’ll feed my hands with cheeks of other names
I am lying under tons of porcelain snow
Polyester absorbs me
Fawn
At last my parents cried
About my green and my last white
Now my darling goes to him
She will dare her cross’s skin

I am leaning far, too far above the ice
So I’ll feed my hands with cheeks of other names

I am lying under tons of porcelain snow
Polyester absorbs me

I’m using gloves

Summer Days In Bloom

Lyrics

Paralyzed by ancient delight
And riding for a fall today
I am dressed in style, so eager in mind
But furthermore distracted by you

And it’s like I lose myself in dreaming of summer days in bloom
Oh, I’ve got no clue how I could fight that all that I am is worth a dime
Worth a dime

This liquid lunch will not stop my punch-
Drunk quality to doze while I run
It is thirty-nine degrees in my mind
It’s thirty thousand miles more to go

Cause it’s like I lose myself in dreaming of summer days in bloom
For I’ve got no clue whatever happened
All that I am is worth a dime
Worth a dime
