In his new album, "The Hungry Heart", Philipp thoughtfully refines smalltape’s atmospheric sound, weaving together Artrock and Jazz to produce a tone that’s complex, yet accessible and energizing. The progressive rock album pushes the boundaries of smalltape’s signature sound and confronts critical topics of our times: mental health, racism, gender roles, and climate change. In nine compact songs and one 21-min long track, Philipp takes us on an exploration through the narrative of his generation and examines what it means to cope with the fear and desires that surface with change. "The Hungry Heart" is a beautiful evolution of smalltape’s previous musical approach and embraces a modern sound with influences from jazz, electronic, and minimal music. (beyondrock)
