The music of eisenlager is subject to no form and no rule established by me. It happens in the moment that it happens. It is not being formed in my head in advance. It is formed during creation. Midnightradio 11 and eisenlager are the two projects I have been pursuing since the year 2000. The sounds that evolve during creation reflect my humor, my fear, my life, my experiences and current events. I do not fit in any category but if I had to I would describe myself as an electric krautrocker. It makes me happy when people go on a journey with my music, when they tell me what they felt, what they remembered. When that happens I have reached my goal.
The wonderful new experimental ambient album from Meteer.
A mix of organic and glitchy electronics forming a warm ambient sound.
A wonderful apocalyptic BFW debut from Dozelimit, a band based in Russian city Omsk (in south west Siberia).
55 minutes of glorious shoegazing soundscapes and post rock noise.
On Saturday 6th September 2014, musicians from around the world each wrote and recorded a complete new song, from scratch in one day.
The next day, these songs were collected and put together as an album.
The day after that, the album was released as a free download under a Creative Commons licence!
These albums are always a lot of fun. We never know what we are going to get but having so little time seems to energize musicians into creating something that some would normally work on for weeks.
The result is a wonderful mix of a whole range of music from musicians around the world, all completely written, performed and recorded on Saturday 6th September 2014.
A massive thank you to all the musicians who took part.
Enjoy the album - and please share!
The second collaboration album from Devin Powers (SineRider) and Graham Marlowe, both of whom will be familiar to many of you from their previous releases on BFW and beyond.
This album acts as a second half to its counterpart, however it builds and expands upon its own musical ideas.
Lakewaves Vol. 2 is a fusion of scratchy tape loops, guitars and smooth synthesizers set to jazzy, downtempo rhythms.
