March 2022 Vinyl Giveaway

Mar 25, 2022
This month's vinyl giveaway is an experimental classic from Frisk Frugt aka Anders Meldgaard. At the same time one hears a wide range of genres in the music: free improvised noise, Danish folksong, classical European music, avant-garde and pop merge to create an opus, equally something to sing along to and to study.

"Whatever it is, the word hasn’t been invented yet. It’s just brilliant." Drowned in Sound, 9/10

"It will melt the minds of Van Dyke Parks completists and Björk fans alike" - Mojo, 4/5

"A defiantly unique voice…like Sufjan Stevens let loose in Pinocchio’s workshop…his orchestration is a delightful canvas" - The Wire

The 59 minute-long Den Europæiske Spejlbue is a masterly achievement, one that Anders Meldgaard been worked on from 2011 to 2014 – a modern and contemporary take on songwriting woven into orchestral collages. In order to realise his imaginary orchestra, Anders built some of the instruments you hear on the record himself: partly because he did not have a large live orchestra at hand, and partly because it was his ambition to create music in a fantasy world where new things were possible.
