It has been years in the pipeline, so much so that I was beginning to think it would never see the light of day, but we can thankful that Aurora Borealis will finally release Grumbling Fur’s Furrier this August.
Here is some more information about it…
Borne form a day long improvisation in deep dark south London… A smattering of Fins and Englishmen chatter, chant and chime as rail lines whistle and hashclouds billow. Swamped cavernous modes unravel into vistas of blissed kraut mantra and stilted metal drifts.
Months pass, O’Sullivan and Uusimaki quietly trundle through the wreck-age with a fine tooth comb assembling the hairy monolith. Scene changes and juxtapositions are magnified, temporal dream states fall deeper into comatosed hypnosis. O’Sullivan and Tucker’s deep psyche vocal duets fly above bubbling hippopotamus pools and humming electric temples. Lethisalo barks the Viking lament from sonic Helheim.
‘Furrier’ basks in astral shade.
Daniel O Sullivan (Ulver, Guapo, Mothlite, Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses, Aethenor)
Antti Uusimaki (Mothlite, Panic DHH)
Jussi Lethisalo (Circle, Pharaoh Overlord)
