Here’s a nice writeup on the Skeleton Harbor album “Maiden Voyage”, still available from Oxtail Recordings.

“Brandal and Rambutan breathe the subzero temperatures deeply, and ice crystals form in their lungs. Their adventures are documented in the sounds of the sea, the whitecaps breaking on rocky shores far from safety.”

Skeleton Harbor – “Maiden Voyage” OUT NOW!

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.
