"...Konstantin Gropper, artistically known as Get Well Soon, released three different EPs on three consecutive Mondays last November. These EPs are available exclusively on limited edition 10” vinyl. Each EP has its own theme and its own release date..." (press release)

"...Greatest Hits is a collection of exactly that: six evergreens of pop history reinterpreted by GET WELL SOON. And as always, these are not mere cover versions. That would be far too easy, right? Instead, Gropper puts songs like GEORGE MICHAEL’s Careless Whisper or THE STRANGLERS’ Always The Sun into different frames, bending their initial meanings and emotional statements into strangely familiar jewels. Really, we can’t wait to hear more from that and chances are that there’s more to come in some form as the bandleader mentions:
    “I just love covers. The list is long, believe me. I probably started about 20 versions for this. My goal is never to create a better version, but one that is as different as possible and still works.”
Once again, GET WELL SOON report back with a gentle, classy bang. As uncompromising artificial, crafted and ambitious as pop’s big fictions have to be, but at the same time grounded and polite in everything they do, Gropper and his band create a sort of mass compatible insider pop. With lots of things to discuss about and moments of simple bliss. Music that’ll make us look in each others eyes while we knowingly nod the head, listening to discussions between Heidegger, Zeppelin and Kenneth Anger in the Rififi Bar..." (Read more:
