No Ninja Am I: We Share a Dream

photo: Mirjam van der Most

Sander van Munster of Dutch indie folk project No Ninja Am I created an intimate and in the moment mood by recording his guitar and vocals in one take. It shines through all the tracks on his new EP We Share a Dream. His less is more approach works best with Swim Another Sea on which he plays a deceptively simple rhythm guitar and added a few swirls of extra guitar.

When he goes for a wider sonic palette his songs gain depth. Coen Hamelink's trumpet and Gijs Kerkhoven's viola Magnolia, but it is Hamelink's inspired Fl├╝gelhorn on the exquisite slow song Dance Dance that takes this collection of tender, hopeful songs to the next level. Van Munster is a dreamer and he likes to share them through his music. We Share a Dream does what it says on the tin. Open it and the contents will make the world a better place for as long as the music is playing.
