Grumbling Fur: New Album Details

Experimental duo set to be releasing Glynnaestra through new label Thrill Jockey; tour dates below

Daniel O’Sullivan of Ulver and Guapo and Alexander Tucker (imbogodom) have announced that they’ll be joining forces again as Grumbling Fur for a new album of psychedelic sonic explorations, Glynnaestra.

The duo "have crafted an avant-pop album assembled as one would a collage," reads the text accompanying the album’s release. "This structural foundation is built up via an eclectic array of instruments, both acoustic and modified, to pulsating electronic sounds. … As their history attests, this is a group unbound from the restrictions of traditionalism and unafraid to shed the pretence of pure abstraction. There’s a tradition of subterranean Englishness at play, harking back to This Heat’s Deceit and Eno’s Another Green World. In their first fully realised album as a duo, the process and texture ripple with a kind of electro-gnosis. Glynnaestra herself (an archaic goddess divined by Tucker and O’Sullivan) presides over the record, transcendent and sphinx like: an apt muse for an album of such lovely and powerful music."

They’ve recently signed to Thrill Jockey, who will be releasing the record on July 22; in advance of that, the duo will be touring in support of the LP. Their tour dates run as follows.
