6th of June; no sense of pride

By | Misc | No Comments

Today’s our national day. Can’t be bothered to be honest. Not in the state the country is currently in, anyway. Much more excited about moving abroad and starting a remote hotel at an even more remote island.

Overdubs are going great. The main problems at the moment, I s’pose, are lac of time and impatience – just want to get this record out there for the world to hear and enjoy (or not).

Bless, and reclaim the sound.

And you will know us by the trail of reverb

So, we’ve started recording overdubs yesterday. It’s such an amazing feeling when a song you’ve written start to come alive; be it a sample or a slick, new guitar arpeggio.

We have sort of decided the first single, but it’s hard to say when it will see the light of day since we want proper distribution for once. If anyone is feeling up for it, drop us a line at info (at) bolywool (dot) com.

Yet another summer rain today. Usually, I woulnd’t mind, but we were going to have the first BBQ of 2013. Bummer.

Bless,

… And the summer rain

Hey,

Sorry for being a lazy twat and not updating this thing properly.
Paternity leave and some other stuff came in the way.

Nevertheless, we will continue recording overdubs, do some more programming and vocals the coming weeks. Really excited.

Will post more or less daily next week.

Until then,

Bless!

So, back in Sweden after one epic week in Iceland. Our sincere gratitude to Moni for producing/spiritual guidance and letting us crash at his place. So many memories. Vestmanneyjar, Sundlaugin and Reykjavík in general. We sort of realised that Iceland is our spiritual home. The making of (now ten songs strong) will continue in Gothenburg and Borgholm. We’re hoping for an autumn release.

Droyma – Ikke

By | Music | No Comments

We were so efficient with the pre-production last weekend, we actually had time to record the first Droyma song since 2011. Here it is, the antithesis of Já:

 

 

Easter Island

Hey y’all.

So, as the tweet yesterday stated, Já seems to have turned into a mini-album after all. We simply cannot let any of these gems be left out. Hopefully, the end results will be as good as they seem in our heads.

Halfway done mixing the new Cocoanut Groove record – it’s going to be a killer.

Happy easter everybody.

Spitsbergen (Svalbard, Alternate mix)

Can’t really explain why I decided to revisit this gem since I really like the ‘final’ version that’s on the album. I just wanted to elaborate a bit more with a less dense soundscape, i.e. less compression, and added some more keys to enhance some transitions.

We’ve just scheduled a session at the beginning of April that will conclude pre-production for .  Some Icelandic lager, some music and some zombie flicks. Ought to be a blast.

Everyday Mistakes – Voodoo Drums

By | Misc | No Comments

Next week, our friends in Everyday Mistakes will release the first single from their debut album Obscure Lanes. Calle is bashing them drums on the song (+ another one on the record + guitars and assorted keyboards). This record has taken the odd 6 years to finish off, but it is one mighty fine piece of art, take our word for it. Make no mistake, Everyday Mistakes are gonna be mega.

 

First ray on the darkest of days

Dear all,

We’re currently in the process of pre-production our new EP/mini-album (depending on how many songs that make the cut). It’ll be the best thing we’ve done to date. Since the idea of an EP emerged some months ago, we have called it (Icelandic and Faroese for yes).  It starts where Isles ended and takes us even further into the vast open space of soundscapes. Albeit, we’ve said that we’re going to do a proper pop song  again, so…well, you know… you never know.

We’ll try to upload selected videos from the entire process.

That’s all for now.
