Dr Monika Demmler
Lovecraft

Dr Monika Demmler gives us a rock and roll delight with ‘Lovecraft’. The first bars conjure Drugstore to mind, but it has the energy of The Hives, the effortless cool of The Dandy Warhols, and the alt-twist of Mazzy Star.

This song has open chords with just a little overdrive, a great woody drum sound, a subtle but excellent bass riff, and a Hammond organ to thicken it all up. Demmler’s vocal slices across the top, melodic and full of character.

Aside from the musical delights, Demmler has a way of conjuring an atmosphere of artistic oddity. He next project is based on a letter Einstein wrote to his daughter and will feature the Solfeggio frequency of universal love. Solfreggio frequencies are intended to promote various aspects of body and mind health.

Though I couldn’t find a peer-reviewed paper to confirm these ancient tones and their well-being benefits, it’s broadly accepted that a cat’s purr releases endorphins and has physical healing benefits for the feline and, potentially, the humans around it. The Reverend Douglas Donaldson was not available for comment as he was chewing on some grass.

Dr Monika Demmler is an oddball creative, and the songs are good – so I’m interested in discovering what the Eintein/Solfeggio record will bring.

Watch Dr Monika Demmler – ‘Lovecraft’.

Lovecraft Lyrics

Come on down my angel
Come on down my darling
Let me be your Lovecraft
Let me be your hero

I’m a forest child
I’m running wild
I’m flying high
I’m looking for the flowers in the garbage can
Surrounded by a coat of sacred magic

Come on down my angel
Come on down my darling
Let me be your Lovecraft
Let me be your hero

If you don’t know
Just go with the flow
Don’t look too far
Just for one day
The future is coming anyway

Come on down my angel
Come on down my darling
Let me be your Lovecraft
Let me be your hero

Time is an illusion
Don’t worry too much
Je ne te comprais pas (I don’t understand you)
Qu’est-que tu as dit (What did you say)
Time is a construct of the human mind
And I say, it’s time to board another train

Come on down my angel
Come on down my darling
Let me be your Lovecraft
Let me be your hero
