The promotion material to Timo Scharf’s new EP Everything Ever Always Is All Forgotten contains a magical sentence. He is writing down his thoughts somewhere between folk, pop and country”. If somebody uses the c-word in German music promotion, he must either be mad or really convinced. I did not know Timo’s songs before this review, but I felt that this guy deserves some Flyctory.com support. The German artist released his five song package on 19th March 2021.

Timo Scharf – Everything Ever Always Is All Forgotten – Track by Track
The five track EP lasts 19 minutes.
1. Groundhog Day
Already the first song, Groundhog Day, absolutely catches me a lot. A beautiful ballad with a lovely melody. A really nice voice – the song does sound a lot alike country. And it is not at all that antiquated old-style sound. I absolutely love it.
Promises feels very familiar – but in fact it is a song written by Timo Scharf himself. The song is slow and is dominated by the artist’s deep voice. Really a beautiful listen.
3. Shadow Boxing
Shadow Boxing is more rhythmic, but it still has a quite temperate tempo. The song has a lovely country touch. It feels modern, but it is not too rocking – I would rather describe it as discrete. But it is a real beauty, recommend to listen to it.
4. I didn’t mind
I didn’t mind is the longest song on the EP (4:34 minutes). It is really making use of that time, starting very slow and thoughtful. The song concentrates a lot on lyrics, just being regardfully accompanied by the guitars and some other tunes. The song has a nice dramatic peak towards the end without getting pushy.
5. How was I to know
The quiet tunes of Everything Ever Always Is All Forgotten take their finale at How was I to know. The song is again a really deep and beautiful recording. I love how Scharf arranges the song in a way that it is focusing on the lyrics, on the message. Nice!
