"Asra is a duo, consisting of Af Ursin and Raymond Dijkstra. Both of these people have by now quite some history in releasing music. Their interest is mainly in releasing vinyl, for whatever obscure reasons, and they both have done a few. Both Af Ursin aswell as Dadaphon (in whatever guise he pops up) have a personal way of creating music. Using an old eight channel reel to reel tape machine and a mixing board, they record densely layered sounds. Rubbing sounds, scratching objects, but also they play a wide variety of instruments, such as wind instruments and violins. Just as they dont like CDs, they also dont like electronica that much. So its a highly analog affair. Its hard to describe what it sounds like. There are traces of old Nurse With Wound (but not as collage like) or the recent minimalist drone masters (Mirror, Ora, Monos), but its less closed. On their collaborative record, they of course do whatever they can do best. The a-side has three tracks (although one is so short its merely an intro), staying close to the recent Af Ursin LP or the Dadaphon 10". Electronisch Samenspel (meaning electronic interplay) is a short track on the b-side (being clueless why they used only one third of the available vinyl) and a rather lo-fi theremin play, I assume by the both of them. Strange to hear them doing electronic music, but its kinda of nice, really. Strange and remotely playing. A very nice record by two lovely boys." - Vital. Highly recommended! Restocked. 2003 release.
