Written, composed, performed, recorded & produced by Boris "Lauter" Kohlmayer.



dMute :
A la fois envoûtant et enjoué, tutoyant les grands espaces et les paysages urbains, ce second album de Lauter réussit le grand écart entre le folk généreux d'Herman Düne et celui, plus ombrageux, de Woven Hand. Souhaitons à Lauter la même destinée qu'à ces derniers.

Foutraque :
Avec Cursed, Lauter signe donc un second album fort prometteur qui, à coup sûr, ne laissera pas indifférent tous les mélomanes épris de grands espaces et de liberté musicale radieuse.

indiepoprock :
Picking agile et mélancolie en bandoulière : Lauter débarque comme un troubadour un peu fatigué mais encore prêt à faire virevolter ses doigts sur la six-cordes. "Cursed" est, c’est vrai, un très beau disque de guitare, mais c’est bien la moindre de ses qualités. Boris Kohlmayer a choisi de porter son folk vers des terrains moins bucoliques, vers des ambiances crépusculaires, alourdies par une anxiété inquiète typiquement urbaine. Twin Peaks n’est pas loin.

adecouvrirabsolument :
De facture principalement folk, Cursed est un voyage au milieu des phares de la musique allant des Doors à Palace, sans jamais perdre de vue les lumières de ceux-ci. Rarement un album fait dans l’intimité se permettra des moments de puissance d’un titre comme our seperate ways que nous reverrions de voir démarrer une de nos compilations.

Track Name: As Pretty As A Picture
She is sniffing around me
but I do as if I cannot see her

My heart melts
I go off my head

She catches my eyes
and I catch hers

She's as pretty as a picture
She's as pretty as an angel
She's as pretty as a picture
She's as pretty as an angel

I never really looked for love
I thought I could do without it
Now it's time to go straight to the point
or I'll be sorry 'till the end

My heart melts
I go off my head

She's as pretty as a picture
She's as pretty as an angel
She's as pretty as a picture
She's so pretty, she's my angel
Track Name: Hit The Road
I wanna hit the road
in the springtime
and see the countryside come out of its sleep
I wanna hit the road
an see the countryside

I wanna hit the road
in the summer
when the flowers are in bloom
and the cities are too warm
so people leave it
for some cooler places
where they can rest
'till it's over

I wanna hit the road
in the fall
with my banjo and a suitcase
and sing what I have seen
I wanna hit the road

Going to the eastern countries
where it's so cold outside
but in the bars, the audience is hot
and the booze flows

there I will dance all night long
and I will sing this song
there I will dance all night long
and I will sing this song
I wanna hit the road

oh let me hit the road
I need to see what happens over there
to see how people react to the music
oh let me hit the road

My faith needs to be flaired up again
yeah, the fire must be poked
I wanna hit the road

there I will dance all night long
and I will sing this song
there I will dance all night long
and I will sing this song
I wanna hit the road
Track Name: Our Seperate Ways
We were both standing on the road
wondering which way to go

Will we go our seperate ways
I can't bring myself to do it

can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it

It's not that things screwed up
between us
we were such a cheerful crew

can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it

we went through a hard time
but we always get over it
now we're both standing on the road
wondering which way to go
Will we go our seperate ways
I can't bring myself to do it

can't bring myself to do it
can't bring myself to do it
Track Name: Summer Journey
With the guies during the summer holidays
we took our bikes and went for a ride
we covered a distance of several miles
with a precise aim in mind
we wanted to see the girls

during the way we wondered
are we going to be welcome
are they going to be there for us
and then we arrived
so the charming dance and the serenade could start
may the best man win... a kiss

none of us really made its choice
so the situation was so confused
that we came back empty handed

still we were full of hope
and the next time could be the good one
Track Name: It Is So Quiet
There is no need to hurry
the falling snow is kissing my lips
so softly

There is no need to hurry
I follow your footprints
no you won't run away from me

The fields look like clouds
The nature seems to admire its peaceful state

It is so quiet
Track Name: Who Is That Boy ?
Who is that boy you talked to yesterday night
I'm sure not to know him
I surely do not
you seemed to have fun
yeah, to have a good time
Who is that boy you talked to yesterday night

Where did you go yesterday night
I've been looking for you everywhere around
I asked everybody but no one could tell me
Where did you go yesterday night

Winning smiles and kwowing glances on your friends faces
I just can't stand it anymore, it makes me sick
Winning smiles and kwowing glances on your friends faces
I just can't stand it anymore,
What do you all hide from me

Who is that boy you talked to yesterday night
I'm sure not to know him
I surely do not
you seemed to have fun
yeah, to have a good time so
Who is that boy you talked to yesterday night
Who is that boy
Track Name: She's Putting You On
She's putting you on
She's putting you on
She's putting you on
She's putting you on

It's true I hate her with a passion
she is notoriously cruel
that girl will stop at nothing
you are miscast in the part

Better go away
Better go away
Better go away
Better go away

You'd better avoid her like the plague
or you'll fall miserably
remove all traces of her presence
yeah, you will get it

She's putting you on
Better go away
Track Name: Bow
Bow to Christ and kiss the cross
bow the Christ and kiss my cock

are you really the village idiot ?
who would trust the village idiot ?

don't you react to their hammerings ?
that will be a piece of cake for me.

if even you tell only one word
the devil is going to get you

so bow to Christ and kiss the cross
bow to Christ and then kiss my cock.
Track Name: The Cursed Song
this is the last song
this is the ghost song
this is the cursed song
I'm going away
I'm going away

this was the last song
this was the ghost song
this is the cursed song
I'm gone away
I'm gone away.
