Aurora Borealis

FINALLY!: GRUMBLING FUR ‘Furrier’CD available now. This amazing album has taken forever to see the light of day and indeed has gained near legendary status… Essentially a super group of sorts, GRUMBLING FUR pools the talents of Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Mothlite, ex Guapo), ALEXANDER TUCKER (be sure to check his excellent new ‘Dortwych’ album on Thrill Jockey), JUSSI LEHTISALO (Circle, Pharaoh Overlord), Antti Uusimaki (Mothlite), David J. Smith (Guapo, THE STARGAZER’S ASSISTANT and Eetu Henttonen. This melting of minds conjures up some etherial moods, shifting washes of sound, otherworldly vocals and moonlit vibes, creating an astonishing whole. With artwork throughout by Alexander Tucker the album is presented as a six panel digipack and as a limited LP with printed inner bag. Truly worth the wait. Initial press reactions have been amazing. CD and CD/T shirt package available now. Limited LP, 300 in colour, should be with us by the end of the month.

MURMUURE s/t LP version of the excellent debut CD that came out on Paradigms last year and garnered so much praise from so many quarters. This masterpiece is now available on vinyl as an edition of 500 copies on black vinyl in a silk screened folder sleeve. SAelling fast! Presented as split release by Aurora Borealis and COLD VOID EMANATIONS “All Murmuure material is based on a one hour guitar improvisation from November 2006. Selected parts were further edited to fit a rythmic structure, and merged with additional layers of sound. This process of mixing & endless re-writing took 3 years until final completion. The percussions are a mixture of the original programmed drums, and some (extremely re-edited) additional live drumming. Vocals were recorded during a cathartic trance at a sacred place in the forest, with a mini-disc recorder. Being almost inaudible in the music, they’re strictly conceived as a vocal sigil technique, a vehicle for intent. The 30 minutes long, self-titled release is possibly the first and last Murmuure record. I’ve put so much in it that it will be hard to match, and there would be no point in doing something more just for the sake of it.”
