Andreas Brandal & Continental Fruit review

ABCF-Tape

ATTN:MAGAZINE has posted a great review of my collaboration with Continental Fruit, released earlier this year on FRM-AT.

“What becomes clear with repeated listens is that both collaborators struck upon a common sentiment here, and one that seeps through the margins of traditional language and pools in the basin of sonic abstraction: uncomfortable and unclear, miserable and strangely romantic, otherworldly and viscerally familiar.”

“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.”
