NOT IN STOCK
Time Is a Mountain
On white vinyl. It all starts with a sound: the sound of a monophonic synth -- then we have the drums and what binds it all together: the bass. Phrases, echoes, memories -- expanding lines that evolve and re-evolve. Escape from New York. Growing up. Possibilities and limitations. The smell of dust and electricity. A wish to go backwards and forwards at the same time. It all comes down to an introspective groove and the strength of the collective process. Time Is A Mountain is the brainchild of Tomas Hallonsten. Honing his craft in the group Tape and on numerous other recordings, he's now one of Sweden's most distinctive musicians, talking to his machines and coaxing totally organic sounds out of them. The music on this record throws its tentacles both into the future and back into history with a sound not to be confused with others. Together with cohorts Andreas Werliin (Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Tonbruket, Fire!) and Johan Berthling (Tape, Fire!) they've created a real gem of a record.
