Alexander von Mehren - debut album news

27/02/12 10:15 am, Alex, Bergen, Norway

Hi, fellow High Llamas fans!

I hope you guys don't mind the intrusion - I recently posted a message over at the Stereolab forum about my forthcoming album and wanted to include you guys in the loop, figuring we are likely to share a great deal of musical references too. The album was recorded in my studio in Bergen, Norway from 2006 to 2010, and in August 2010 I spent two weeks in Chicago mixing the album with John McEntire in Soma Electronic Music Studios. I'm currently scheduling the mastering session aiming for a release later this year and will certainly keep you posted, if you're interested.

Furthermore, I wanted to give you too a chance for a premiere listening of a selection of the tracks from the album, and so you can access three of the album's twenty tracks here:

Insouciance: http://soundcloud.com/vonmehren/insouciance/s-ey0mZ

Aller-Retour: http://soundcloud.com/vonmehren/aller-retour/s-LWNFy

I hope you like them and that this message finds you all well!

All the best from Bergen, Norway,

Alexander

 Wow. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who cites The High Llamas is worth a listen.

Wow, thank you so much for your wonderfully warm words, everybody! I'll be mastering the album in April and will most certainly keep you updated on the progress of the release. Until then, I've uploaded a new track here:

There's also another track available on my website, http://www.vonmehren.com, called Natural Selection. You'll find it in the Music-section.

I hope you enjoy these tracks! Thanks again for the interest and positive words - I really appreciate that!

All the best from Norway, Alexander
