will be doing an LP with Swedish artist/composer Matti Bye, one of my current favorite Swedish artists.
Artist: Matti Bye
Looking for a little Halloween music and don't want the usual goth/industrial recommendations I hand out? I highly recommend Matti Bye and Mattias Olsson's collaboration album "Elephant & Castle" -- it's the perfect soundtrack of creepy calliope tunes ala "Something wicked this way comes", great any time of year but especially perfect for this particular weekend. Listen via Spotify: http://open.spotify.com/album/1zJYHaNEwFdMkXCQcnH13E
And if someone from is watching, I'd sure love a copy of that limited edition box set w/the Edison cylinder, but somehow I imagine I'll have to settle for one of the less-fancy copies. Full details here: http://www.kningdisk.com/index_elephantandcastle.htm
"Empty chairs", the song streaming about, comes off of the album "Elephant & castle", a new musical collaboration between Matti Bye, a Swedish artist known for his soundtrack work, and the prolific analog/keyboard enthusiast Mattias Olsson. Said album "was created in relation to the photographic work of Martina Hoogland Ivanow," whose images provided inspiration for the music during the recording session, fourteen prints of which will also be including in the LP's box along with a phonograph cyclinder. The official release date is April 24 via .
Swedish psych/folk act Vinter, featuring acclaimed soundtrack composer Matti Bye, will release their sophomore album "Vinter II" on November 22 via Tjärnen and will only be available on limited edition vinyl. Hear sample tunes at myspace: http://www.myspace.com/vinterfolk
