“Tapestry of Forgotten Ideas” out now!

My new album “Tapestry of Forgotten Ideas” is out today on Tape Drift Records. Here’s what the label says:

“Tape Drift has been a huge fan of Brandal’s music for at almost a decade now, and his second outing for the label is a stunning contribution to his body of work.  The cold darkness of Norway informs his music, but it his ability to conjure worlds completely unknown that really makes Andreas stand out.  Tapestry of Forgotten Ideas (TOFI) showcases a collection of tracks that are heavy and noisy yet complex and bursting with complex sonic details.  His releases consistently offer aural surprises while never letting the quality meter show any signs of flagging.  It’s a remarkable feat given the size and scope of his discography.  Don’t skip this one.”

Many thanks to Joshua Stefane for allowing me to use his excellent photo for the album cover!

Check out a couple of the tracks HERE.

“Flames and Ether” in Cassette Gods

Posted in News, Reviews with tags on January 28, 2017 by andreasbrandal

Cassette Gods has posted a very nice review of “Flames and Ether”:

“…Brandal’s harnessed the language of near-future dystopia by combining it with “spaghetti western” flourishes, presenting in result an apocalyptic experience, one where the oxymoronic violence and tranquility of the title have converged and spawned. The juxtaposition is strange and majestic. In short, it’s stunning.”
