Collaboration with Continental Fruit out now!

Posted in News, Sounds with tags , on September 25, 2017 by andreasbrandal


My first collaboration with Jon Øyvind dates back to the mid nineties, when I did the cover art for his “Taste Like Good EP”. Aside from a guest spot on a track from the brilliant Continental Fruit album “Gently Carved Into Sound” in 2002, this is our first time to release something together.

As far as I know, both “Taste..” and “Gently..” have yet to be available in downloadable form, but the equally great “Mentor Mentee” released on Smalltown Supersound in 2004, can be found on Spotify/Itunes/Tidal etc.

“Andreas Brandal & Continental Fruit” is out now on FRM-AT.

Get it HERE.

Symbols flyer

This album was made using glitches and loops mostly derived from recently unearthed recordings made in the early nineties. Old dusty tapes, disintegrating in the basemet for ages meet field recordings, samples from 78 rpm gramophone records with the odd drone and some instrumentation sprinkled on top. A quite bleak affair, where sludgy sounds hiss and squeek their way through the swamp, dragging along broken bones and ghosts found in the mud.
The CD-R version is limited to 40 copies, and comes with a xeroxed zine featuring a visualization of the symbols.
The download includes full quality front and back artwork and a PDF-version of the zine.

Check out the album HERE.
