Jen děcko se bojí
Sestry Steinovy: Jen děcko se bojí (Only children fear)
The third album of Sestry Steinovy band was published in September 2006 and it originated in the Prague studio Svengali in the summer of the same year. This time, the sisters (Karolina Kamberská a Lucie Steinhauserová) decided to produce their album by themselves and they invited only people with whom they get on well on a personal level, such as the violinist Karolina Vančurová (member of Klec band), drummer and percussionist David Landštof (who plays with Lenka Dusilová and Aneta Langerová) bass-guitarist Pavel Hloušek (Šantré); occasional entries of electornics were mediated by Jan Amos. Behind the sound window Vladimír Papež wrung his hands; Alexej Charvát took good care of the mix. The CD cover, like the previous album covers of Sestry Steinovy was created by Tereza Říčanová and Petr Šmalc and this time you can look forward to an especially beautiful digipack. The album starts with an a capella silent song “Myši” (Mice), in which the composer Karolina sings the praises of a morning frolicking of the vermin in the kitchen of her country house. In the end of the album, you will find the electronic version of the introductory song Jen děcko se bojí (Only children fear) in the arrangement of Jan Amos. In between these two extremes, songs typical for Sestry Steinovy (e.g. pensive Štěstí (Happiness), which after a promising start finishes with an obligatory depressive ending, because “fear is a sidekick of happiness”) alternate with a few unexpected pieces. For instance, the punk song Svatební (Wedding Song) is meant as a serious warning to young men against an impetuous lifelong obligation. We can also mention Sibiřská (Siberian Song) – the only song that the painter Tereza Říčanová has composed in her life (in the album, it is interpreted by a women’s choir, unsuccessfully rivaled by a sampled jackal).
