South-East London Rock Band Rutger Hauser New Album: The Swim

Hello there... Another new records from Indie label Adaadat (UK) and Tutl (Faroes Island), let me introduce.. Rutger Hauser band, I think this band is fully influenced by Actor Rutger Hauer, the band release new album called "The Swim" , this album is the second album from South-East London based improvisational experimental rock quintet Rutger Hauser The Swim record was recorded over a week long period in the Faroe Islands in a community hall called Sólarmagn, on the coast at Velbastaður looking out towards Hestur and Koltur, the horse and colt, and the Atlantic beyond. Sounds like natural experimental mixed with breakthru ideas, The album features hand assembled artwork with stamped labels and risographic printed inserts. It is due to be co-released by Adaadat and Faroese imprint Tutl on the 1st of July.

Accoustic sound from nature, birds and music tools (amps, cello and drum kit, studio gear, pillows and bedding) was made possible by the generosity of various individuals and organisations on the islands, and by the dedicated organisational work of Klaemint, the band’s one Faroese member.

Rutger Hauser describe more details, here is the complete details: "Velbastaður is a bleakly beautiful place, but it was uncharacteristically sunny for most of the week. On Friday night, the sessions complete, the fog came down and we drank and danced enveloped in grey nothing. The place is in the music - the sound of the big, wood-panelled room, the coast road empty in both directions and the sea outside the window.

The Swim sounds like a group of people working things out together. If we could do without pre-determined form and without conventions of improvised music; if we could not necessarily be drummer, bass player, guitarist, cellist, electronicist, but sometimes just people playing together in different combinations; unspecialised, unsure. It’s mostly first or second takes. When we did things more times, they usually ended up worse.

Sean Woodlock recorded the sessions, helped us to make sense of the music before and after, and though he will deny it, became one of us. Back at home, the recordings were mixed in a second week by John Harries, and some overdubs added by Ian Stonehouse. Otherwise, they sound now not much different to how they sounded in the room at Sólarmagn. The vinyl cut was by Noel Summerville, and art and design by John Harries"
