The five best Kramies songs ever (maybe)

Like lists. Like Kramies. Likes Kramies lists. Tough choice, but here are the five best Kramies songs of all time ever. At least until the new release in October. Most of these tracks are available as free downloads over at Bandcamp.

Sea Otter Cottage

Hear the creak of the beams. Feel the swell of the sea. Sense the dark enveloping you. The seas, they just won’t behave. Sea Otter Cottage is wonderfully evocative. Check out the excellent version with Grant Wilson too.

Inventors

Kramies in pre-dream pop phase. Or the most recent one anyway. But there are more than a few hints of what is soon to come here. In the guitar. The phrasing. The general sense of someone faintly swooning.

I Wish I Missed You

Featuring ambient crows, this is a classic. If you’re hoping for a birthday song, a summer song, a welcome-home-I’ve-baked-cupcakes song, then look elsewhere. But if you’re feeling slightly down on your luck, then Kramies is the artist for you.

Ireland

There’s a clue in the title. But this is a song that would feature never mind the moniker. In this live version, the audience is under Kramies’ spell. And so are we all.

The Wooden Heart

Sei mir gut. Sei mir gut. Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst. This is a mesmerising studio version of the song that originally appeared on the eponymous EP. Dream pop. Dream folklore. Meh. Just Kramies.
