"Akbé/Animé", our first full-length release, will be available as a digital album and on audio CD on November 24th, 2017.
The album documents the earliest phase of our musical project. We started recording our rehearsals in March 2017 and have since then always kept the recorder running during our sessions. This has left us with a huge digital archive of attempts, sketches, weird noise and decent tracks. At one point we felt that the best of the decent tracks were actually good enough to be released, so we selected eight of them for this album. You find them here largely as they were recorded, with no overdubs and only minimal editing. There may be a few rough edges, and we realize that the sound is not always exactly hi-fi, but the rawness found here has an immediacy and urgency that we could never quite re-create in a studio setting. Consider this a live album of sorts.
1. Akbé, 2. Cryo #3, 3. Alma, 4. Animé_12, 5. Andaï, 6. Cluster, 7. Thomas. 8. Unthought.
The album will be made available digitally via our Bandcamp page as well as through iTunes, Google Play and other digital music sites. A limited edition audio CD can be ordered directly from us on Bandcamp.
