Having released of string of 12"s since 2010, Even Brenden, AKA Chmmr (pronounced "chi-murr"), recorded his first full-length, Auto, over the spring of 2016. A true nostalgic, he uses Compass Point-era and early Italo sounds for inspiration, and attempts to simulate these styles. This makes for a melodic, chuggy, and graphic album that belongs a little more in the living room than on the dancefloor. With ten tracks of dusty rhythms and the honest, naïve, and spacious themes that is Brenden's signature, it's a record designed to signal that today's technological future may not be as different as yesterday's. Hidden behind his Chmmr moniker is Even Brenden, whose summery debut found its way into the world via Norwegian psych-disco label Luna Flicks in 2010. The record became somewhat of a sought after item, and after making pit stops at Relish, Dødpop, and Untz Untz Records, he landed on Prins Thomas's Full Pupp label in 2014 and have stayed put ever since, all the while enjoying a steady habit of record jocking and the occasional keyboard duty in Telephones' now-defunct live band. Even resides in Oslo makes odd waves without vowels. Cover painting by the late Harold Cohen's AARON program - automation at its finest.
