Matti Bye – This Forgotten Land

Matti Bye

"Out of time, but just in time, it confirms Matti Bye as a composer of visionary, cinematic scope. ‘This Forgotten Land’ will endure, in fact, because it sounds like it’s always been among us."

Exclusive video premier of 'Melt' via Headphone Commute

"The noise was deafening despite the fact that little had been said." 
*** Ransom Note on 'Silence'

"A work in perpetual evolution, 'Absence' welcomes you in via its meditative, inward citations"
*** Clash Magazine on 'Absence'

Kumisolo started collaborating with Swedish tropical band Joe Davolaz by singing on their « Cha Cha André » EP. Attracted by their warm and authentic sound, she decided to meet them in Stockholm and record the arrangements for her second album « Kabuki Femme Fatale ». By jamming together in Tropiska studios, a true alchemy soon operated between Kumi’s bitter sweet pop compositions and the band’s live vibrations. Listening to « Kabuki Femme Fatale », music lovers will probably tell their common fascination for timeless pop artists, such as Haruomi Hosono, Martin Denny, Françoise Hardy or the synthpop trio Antena. Like a psych-pop concept album rescued from a time capsule, « Kabuki Femme Fatale » brings you a kaleidoscopic reading on the modern woman with unique hypnotic sounds.

Limited edition gatefold LP released by Tona Serenad under exclusive license from Alter K. « Kabuki Femme Fatale » is also available in France by Alter K and in Japan by Flau.

One. So, there's this thing in Incan mythology called pacha. It’s basically about dividing the world, and all of cosmos, into three different spheres: the world above, the world below and this one. While these spheres, according to pacha, are part of a unified system, the division between the spheres is where it gets interesting. That’s where we get the dualism so important with the Incans, the Yanantin. It relates to both time and space, then and now, here and there, anything and anywhere and in any time and everything at the same exact time. In short, what it means is that every thing possesses, in some way, all possible values of that thing; it exists in all three spheres.

Two. Although the term folk music has only been used since sometime in the 19th century, people have enjoyed it a lot longer than that. It’s literally the people’s music. And, while it often describes music that is traditional and bound by customs, because of the inherent democracy of its meaning, it not only allows, but encourages any peoples to define and create their own folk music. So let’s do that.

Three. Isla del Rojo. Comprised of Swedish guitar player and composer Daniel Ögren (Sarah Riedel, Musette) and Danish drummer Ulrik Ording (Anna von Hausswolff), Isla del Rojo blends various South American styles of music—with a particular focus on the Peruvian Huayno tradition—with Swedish pop, jazz, folk and film music. By mixing analog synths with flutes and woodwinds (such as the quena, played by Per “Ruskträsk” Johansson), strings with percussions, they embrace the dualism of the pacha tradition, creating music that is at the same time traditional and modern, South American and Scandinavian, romantic and festive, peaceful and and energetic, fitting equally well on a movie screen as on a Bolivian dance floor.

Limited edition of 300 copies.
