I am Oak: Pictures of the Floating World

Anyone who has been lucky enough to witness I am Oak's Thijs Kuijken performing his songs solo in intimate venue before an audience who have the decency to keep their mouths shut only wants one thing after Kuijken has taken his last bow: a crisp recording enabling to relive the experience over and over again. The new Pictures of the Floating World EP fills that gap. Recorded at a show in Sonicville in Brussels on January 20 for the Indies Keeping Secrets series he wowed the crowd with just this voice and his acoustic guitar. This is top shelf indie folk.

He is a poet choosing his words carefully. Without ever rising his voice he laments the death of loved ones, finding solace in nature and stories. While listening to this EP it is easy to think that he is playing for an audience of one. It will be hard to find another album that is this up close and personal
