ANDREAS BRANDAL
“Murmurs and Eches”
(Field Hymns)




Andreas Brandal takes Bohren & der Club of Gore’s glacial gloom (but trading that saxamophone for more textural synthesizer layerins, mind you) and then he breeds this with Earth’s bluesy, heavy, un-distorted, long-form riffery and Lungfish’s pass-the-focal-point-baton layer-movement. On top of this…or more like buried just beneath…throw in a few samples/field recordings/choral chants here & there and we’ve got a soundtrack that’s brooding, pulse-slowing, and cultivating of chordal anticipation and satisfaction well worth repeated listens.
