I have been a fan of Eric Hardiman’s music since I first heard the Rambutan album “Incidences” in 2009. We got in touch, and since then Eric has been kind enough to release two albums of mine on his legendary label Tape Drift. A couple of years ago we started collaborating on what would eventually become the debut album by Skeleton Harbor. It has been a real adventure working on this, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. To top it off, the album was picked up by the most excellent Oxtail recordings, who has done outstanding work on the presentation and release of “Maiden Voyage”.

The label says:

The fog rolls in, the wind picks up, and the sun goes down – this voyage may be more than you bargained for. Working long-distance between Albany, USA and Bergen, Norway over the course of 2016, Andreas Brandal and Rambutan have crafted a suite of haunted, icy soundscapes that will be required listening in the depths of the upcoming winter. Expertly crafted and patiently executed, Maiden Voyage is full of gloomy, murky, nautical sounds from two of the truest OGs of the experimental underground.

Check out this, and a bunch of other great stuff in the new batch from Oxtail 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.”

My new album “Flames and Ether” is out now on Oxtail Recordings. The label says:

“A master of fractured beauty and exquisite melancholy, Andreas Brandal returns to Oxtail Recordings with “Flames and Ether.” Pushing guitar and percussion to the forefront, Brandal envisions a world where sci-fi and spaghetti western aren’t so different after all. At once a studied piece of studio mastery and a rich, emotional transmission, “Flames and Ether” reaffirms his place as one of the most imaginative auteurs in underground music.”
