“DIMLY LIT”

(Fort Evil Fruit)

It has been quite some time since Ernesto and I put some energy captured on tape out there, so we both are particularly happy to share with you our new cassette album “Dimly Lit”. Its sound is a bit more sombre, tragic even, but not straying too far away from the inherent warmth of our music. Recorded under the dim light of the Smokey Room in Sint Denijs, these four improvised pieces speak of the uncertain paths we take in this cycle of our existence, like walking through fog or dark corridors, casting strange shadows in our hearts and minds. We must never lose hope in the light that is within us, no matter how faint. Magnificent artwork by Christian Schoppik, edition of 100 copies, contact Fort Evil Fruit to order!

“Though their acoustic drone is transcendental in intent, this is very physical music, achieved by constant motion – wheezing harmonium bellows, resinous violin bowing and rattling prayer bowls. The duo’s musicality and attention to tone, texture and pace make for a richly colourful listen that sounds different on every spin. Drone that’s more likely to get you punching the air than nodding off.” (Fort Evil Fruit)
