With his second album "The Ocean" Philipp Nespital has produced under the name Smalltape one of the best German self-productions of recent years in the melancholic art rock sector. A full six years have passed since the debut album "Circles", during which Nespital, who comes from Neustrelitz in Mecklenburg, has developed enormously. As a supplement to our short feature here is a more detailed interview with the 29-year-old multi-instrumentalist who is responsible for vocals, keyboards, piano, guitar & bass as well as drums on "The Ocean".
