Happy birthday Forever Grinning

Happy birthday Forever Grinning

Today it's 4 years ago we released this awesome EP called Forever Grinning by one of the very best experimental bands in our native Denmark, Thulebasen.

In October 2011, Thulebasen was contacted by the Statens Museum for Kunst, Denmark's National Art Museum, to create a song for one of the paintings from their collection of 19th-century Danish paintings. Independently of each other, the three members of the band became stuck on a Jørgen Sonne painting from 1847: ”Midsummer’s Eve. Sick People Asleep upon the Grave of St Helena at Tisvilde”. The painting depicts a group of visibly infirm people sitting, and waiting. A myth states that the Saint could heal them if they stayed on the grave overnight. With a strange luminosity that is both light and dark, this painting is famous for being the first to capture the unique light conditions of a summer night in Denmark.

"Forever Grinning" is the song they wrote for this painting. It was co-released together with the label Splendour.

The 12" features remixes by Eric Copeland (Black Dice), Lucky Dragons, Hhappiness, Gala Drop and Lamburg Tony.

There's still a few LPs left here.
