What is Fantasy League? Taking his unique blend of acoustic and electronic elements as a starting point, Brisbane artist Andrew Tuttle has devised an approach to the notion of Fantasy League loosely based upon the idea of the creation of an album as a utopian fantasy environment. This environment sets social interaction against total isolation. It sets self-reflexivity against self-confidence; it promises to complete you, as you complete it. But at what point is the fantasy to be broken? At what point must the music fall away from the promise of becoming and into the concrete nature of being? In Fantasy League, your position is only ever as certain as your desires. Music and self are in unison, but never settled or steady. Written, recorded, edited, and mixed May-October 2015, James Street. Mastered by Lawrence English, November 2015. Andrew Tuttle: computer, banjo, synthesizer, acoustic guitar. Tuttle has released recordings on Room40's A Guide To Saints label and Heligator, in addition to several private mixtapes. Tuttle has collaborated live or on record with artists including Matmos, Lawrence English, Blank Realm, Mike Cooper, and Heinz Riegler, and shared concert lineups with Matmos, Julia Holter, Hauschka, The Soft Pink Truth, Forest Swords, Omar Souleyman, Om, Marihiko Hara, and countless others. Prior to 2013, Tuttle created music under the nom de musique of Anonymeye, releasing three albums and performing over 100 concerts in Australia, Europe, and New Zealand.
