GAUTE GRANLI - Blusens Fasong
"The Norwegian wunderking of demented psychedelic song (de)structure is back with a fantastic collection of soft madness. His Animalskt LP was played in the UE office until you could see through it. Gaute Granli is a one man band, taking a complete stranger with thirsty ears by the nose to leave him/her/them behind, confused and hungry for more recognizable hope.
There's a constant form of recognition going on here in these 8 stretched songs, these strange flirts with folk music you think you know from somewhere, vocals that don't sound like they consist of words one knows, and pop parts that are stripped by a psychedelic gnome messing with loop pedals. Although everything magically works, and made it into a song structure of sorts, a melancholic almost religious dust of desperation sits uncomfortably on all these tunes, like a frog that was already licked on the back.
Limited to 300 copies, comes with an insert, a download code and a UE sticker" - Ultra Eczema.
"Norwegian sound-conjurer Gaute Granli uses guitar, voice, and a phalanx of effects and loops to make hypnotic yet disturbing music that often feels like it’s coming from inside one’s head. On Blusens Fasong, he gives almost every track a repetitive rhythm, cycling some rubbery or pounding sounds then wrapping them in moans, whirs, and whines. The absurdist humor of his music, which sometimes evokes cartoons projected underwater, brings to mind obscurist artists such as Kraus and the Residents. But the kind of woozy darkness that underpins all of Granli’s emissions gives Blusens Fasong a feeling all its own." - Marc Masters. (best experimental music on Bandcamp April 2021)
