More Info

"Das brandneue Studioalbum von VOLCANO THE BEAR ist eine kalkuliert-hysterische Verschmelzung von THIS HEAT, ROBERT WYATT, FAUST und THE RESIDENTS, aus Musique Concrete und Ethnofolk, gesehen durch ein Kaleidoskop aus theatralischer Improvisation. Gegrndet 1995 waren es VOLCANO THE BEAR, die Steven Stapleton von NURSE WITH WOUND derart in Aufregung versetzten, dass er sein United Diaries Label wiedererweckte, nur um 2000 ihr erstes Album ,The Inhazer Decline" herauszubringen. Seitdem haben VOLCANO THE BEAR Alben auf einer ganzen Stange von Labels (und ihrem eigenen!) verffentlicht, von denen ,Classic Erasmus Fusion" von 2006 ein definitives Highlight ist. Wenn die Band aufnimmt, dann geht es darum, krasse Absurditten auf bizarr-schnste Weise darzustellen. "Golden Rhythm/Ink Music" ist ihr erstes "richtiges" Studioalbum seit "Amidst The Noise And Twigs" von 2007. Das neue Album konzentriert sich auf die soundtechnische Trennlinie zwischen Aaron Moore und Daniel Padden und drfte das fokussierteste Album von VOLCANO THE BEAR berhaupt sein. Es zeigt ,Rockmusik" aus der leicht verdrehten Perspektive von VOLCANO THE BEAR und wartet mit mehr Schlagzeug/Gitarren Kombinationen auf als jemals zuvor. ,Golden Rhythm/Ink Musik" bersetzt die bizarre Energie der VOLCANO THE BEAR Liveperformance in die Umwelt des Studios.
Rune Grammofon presents the brand-new studio album from Volcano The Bear, a calculated, hysterical melting-pot of This Heat, Robert Wyatt, Faust and The Residents, of musique concrte and ethno-folk, all seen through a prism of theatrical improvisations and unhinged set pieces. Formed in 1995, and after several self-released tapes and CD-Rs, VTB so excited Nurse With Wound's Steven Stapleton, that he brought his United Dairies label out of cold storage to release their first album proper, The Inhazer Decline, in 2000. Since then they've released music on such labels as Misra, Beta Lactam Ring, Textile, Digitalis, Pickled Egg, Alt Vinyl as well as their own imprints Volucan and Volfurten with the exceptional Classic Erasmus Fusion from 2006 being a possible highlight. On record, VTB offer stark and stunning absurdities in the most bizarrely beautiful way. Recycling and re-contextualizing their material is an innate habit, and the variety of recording options they might choose (be it a highly-equipped professional studio or a second-hand dictaphone) allows their craft to be formed in a myriad of different ways. VTB have toured extensively throughout Europe and North America and in concert they are the duo of Daniel Padden and Aaron Moore. Absurd humor and eclectic ways of producing sounds are characteristic of their live performances and their extensive knowledge of the traditions of experimental and folk music makes the band difficult to categorize. The band record everything they play and will often use these recordings as raw material for their albums. VTB have released a number of records since the start, often mixing studio, live and home recordings. Golden Rhythm/Ink Music is their first more or less "proper" studio album since Amidst The Noise And Twigs back in 2007. Largely based on the sonic fault-line between Aaron Moore and Daniel Padden, it's also the most focused and driven of VTB's prolific output so far, showcasing the duo's unique musicality and interplay, while retaining their trademark eccentricity and humor throughout. It presents "rock music" as seen through VTB's skewed eye, featuring more of Padden and Moore's drum/guitar combination than on previous albums. Taking the bizarre energy of their live duo performances into a studio environment, and combining it with VTB's eclectic instrumentation and Clarence Manuelo's singular audio-work, GR/IM shows VTB making their most vital work to date.
