Brundlefly & the Swede’s “Pretense”

Hey!

We’ve just released our new lp, “Pretense”.

We’re a pretty indulgent duo- but we’ve riddled this fucker with plenty of additions (violins, cellist, clarinets, vibes, trumpet, trombone, etc).

I suppose it might be confused for some kind of “prog”, seeing as it’s got a side long, kitchen sink of a track on side a, and only two other tracks on side b... in true “close to the edge” fashion. We’ve gone so far as to release it in fancy, roll your joints style gatefold “tip on” style sleeves as well. This lp was mastered by Carl Saff, and manufactured by gottagroove.

Lots going on here, and even vocals (our last lp was all instrumental). I’ll not bother trying to put words to it, but I’m not sure this is a reasonable record... hope y’all can dig.

Have a listen.

Spent a bunch of time with this record today, and it's brilliant.

Recommended if you like Tortoise, Sergio Mendes, and heartbreak.
Whole thing just races forward, takes a bunch of left turns, but still has a grand vision.

solid! Buy it, you humps!
