NEWS: THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO Release Digital Single

October 03, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Norwegian independent band THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO will release their new album Pop Obskura on October 7th in Europe and November 5th in North America.  The band has released a digital single on iTunes.  The single includes two songs "Collette (Subie Subie)" and "Cybernautic" and can be purchased HERE.

 

Praised by the likes of David Fricke (Rolling Stone Magazine) and Michael Stipe (R.E.M) THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO follow up their artistic triumph of the last album Futuro. The fifth incarnation of the band manifests the second consecutive collaboration with Norwegian producer Jørgen Træen (Motorpsycho, Jaga Jazzist, Kaizers Orchestra).

 

Pop Obskura was recorded in three different locations during three different seasons over the past year, the bulk of it in a cottage outside of the band's creative epicenter; Haugesund in the beautifully fjord-ridden southwestern reaches of Norway.

 

The band has set out to create a timeless, song- and vocals oriented artpop-album for a seasoned audience. Let's say compost rock meets 60's cellar decadence. All in all it shows a cooler and subtler approach than the noisier ventures of its predecessors, invoking associations to Broadcast, Yo La Tengo, Electreland and Stereolab. References notwithstanding the tracks are of course all wrapped in the unique and easily identifiable soundscape guise that is, and has always been THE LOW FREQUENCY IN STEREO.
