Was JJ Cale from Stuttgart? It almost seems so when you listen to the new album "Strange Nights" by BRTHR.

 

It is, as the record shows, a congenial duo: Eißler's sense of melody and songwriting combines with Brettschneider's well-grounded sound fetishism.

 

Together they do a relaxed slow-jam to Rhythm Ace, which brings us to JJ Cale. He used the drummachine too, and Eißler and Brettschneider explicitly name the king of the Tulsa sound as an influence.
