Huffington Post 2014: „'Me So Selfie' Is The Creepy Rock Anthem For Our Self-Indulgent Time!“

Reclusive Swiss philosopher, Loic Matter once said: “I am drawn to stillness, solitude, routine, and introspection. If you want to be happy, don’t be like me.” No one has taken that advice more to heart
than Tobias Jundt henceforth referred to by his nom-de-rock: Bonaparte. Bonaparte is the opposite of stillness - he is kinetic. Bonaparte is allergic to solitude - he is a leader. The only routine Bonaparte
adheres to is having no routines - he is random. Bonaparte wears x-ray intro-spectacles - so he can see into himself and out of himself simultaneously. And, as a result, Bonaparte is happy. Happy to meet you, happy to kiss you, happy to treat you, happy to eat you.

Unlike Loic Matter who hasn’t set foot outside of his mountainside cabin in the past 23 years, Bonaparte’s natural state is movement. His most natural activity while in this state isobservation via interaction. Bonaparte collects languages (both musical and verbal) everywhere he goes - like a kid collects shells at the seashore - excited about each and every new discovery - vibing off of the rubble of the Berlin Wall, the melodious bird songs of New Zealand, the camaraderie of Russian vodka, and the beat-up breakdance cardboard of Brooklyn. By soaking up such a wide array of cultural contexts, Bonaparte has developed effortless knack for code-switching that keeps his music unpredictable and fresh. Even though he sings primarily in English, it often seems as if he is experimenting with his own idiosyncratic dialect - where repetition and wordplay morph meaning into something that is entirely fluid, dynamic, and often times absurdist. Two of Bonaparte’s biggest hits - “Anti-Anti” and “Too Much” - utilize this twist of meaning so effectively that seemingly negative phraseologies become chant-worthy rallying cries. The same kind of magic is worked in “Out of Control,” a stand out track from Bonaparte’s forthcoming release - where there is such a clash of disparate musical and linguistic traditions that the urgency of the message “No Food, No Guns, Control” becomes contagiously universal.
Just as he gathers languages in his constant state of motion, Bonaparte also gathers conspirators, collaborators, fervent followers, and most importantly friends. A gaggle of elaborately costumed dancers decorate his frenetic live show. Videographers emerge from their darkened editing sweets to create stunning Bonaparte videos (like the clip for Into the Wild that beautifully captures a day in the life of a Shanghai street performer and his simian assistant). Engineers and musicians alike are quick to accept invitations to record from this charmingly strange traveler. Such was the case for recording the new self titled Bonaparte album in Brooklyn, NY. After a chance meeting and a few drinks, Bonaparte casually teamed up with Andy Baldwin, to record an entire album - featuring drumming by Philadelphia native Christopher Powell, and even a cameo from Brooklyn rapper/artist Tim Fite. If you listen very carefully, between the notes of the songs, you can hear the sound distance traveled and life long friendships being formed.
