Vinyl Giveaway, May 2023

May 01, 2023
This months vinyl giveaway is a buried treasure from back in 2013 by PRE-Be-UN aka Nicolai Kleinerman Koch (Oh No Ono, Choir of Young Believers etc.). Sign up to our newsletter below before June 1st for a chance to win a copy on vinyl.

On this — our first picture disc vinyl — released on August 19, 2013, the expression is minimalistic despite complex instrumental arrangements including samples, vintage synths and effects, and analog sequencers. It's both written, recorded, and produced by Kleinerman himself and he also plays almost every instrument on the album. 

It's a modern pop album that - at first listen - could seem oddly composed. The melodies are cut to the bone and have a vibe that they are almost derived from a mathematical formula.

About clean spasms Kleinerman said:

“Nowadays it is hard to discover an authentic folk culture, but with PRE-Be-UN I aim to address the fact the pop culture is the authentic folk culture nowadays, not anything else. My lyrics have ambiguity as a textual ideal, and I think you could speak about them as hyper referential as the lyrics constantly on sen- tence-level refer to pop and avant-garde culture - everything from Gene Vincent to George Brecht”.
