DRØNE ::: REVERSING INTO THE FUTURE
Side B this strange life ll ::: 19:57
"A very hot day in the hills above Los Angeles… only possible to work in the mornings because of the sweltering afternoon heat, so all a bit frantic, but with a kink in time. There is no wifi-controlled air conditioning; the car is electric-powered and charging up. It has barely rained for months, (if not years) and the hoses are working overtime. Its an analogue session; Mark’s modular synth set up is working furiously and overheating. We are pushing sounds through and seeing what works… and things gradually take shape. The forms seem to determine themselves; how much control do we have? How much do we want? Some peculiar things start to happen and the haze bends. Some of the sounds seem alive and are quick to reform as we struggle to contain them, like trying to stuff snakes into a bag. The sounds moan and sing, forming their own phonemes.”
drøne: Mark Van Hoen & Mike Harding
ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF ::: THE MIRACULOUS
Critically acclaimed artist and musician Anna von Hausswolff is finally back with her long awaited third studio album.
The new album “The Miraculous” floats like a ghost, from the subdued elegance of the title track, and the bewitching “En Ensam Vandrare”, to the unbearably tense, Godspeed You! Black Emperor atmospherics of “Discovery” and the brutal, Swans-meets-Black Sabbath savagery of “Come Wander With Me / Deliverance”.
The album will be available in November on 2 LP and CD. One of the LP’s will have an etched backside with artwork done by Anna von Hausswolff.
