The Devious Dan EP is out on Beatservice records.
The Devious Dan EP / single is a collection of leftovers, forgetfulness, remakes, whims and some new stuff.
The Devious Dan track itself is somewhat inspired by the earlier Aphex Twin shenanigans, with impromptu melodic electronics and some dribbling beats. Golden oldie. There were even several videos made for the track, heres one :
Apart from the Dan, the EP has some tracks that were originally written for Norwegian poets Jan Erik Vold and John Erik Riley , commisioned by the Norwegian magazine Vinduet back in 2002 or so. On the Devious Dan EP, these tracks are featured without the vocals, if we are able to dig up the tracks with the poets on top, we will post them here. ( Don´t hold your breath )
Then there is a remix or remake if you will, of a track from the Doncamatic singalongs album. Rewritten for 4 pedal steel guitars. Great for lucid dreaming or funerals. Check it out
Here is another track,The Coma That Failed, that has been a work in progress over quite a few years. Somehow it has gotten longer and longer as we have worked on it. I guess it was finally long enough, clocking in at about 10 minutes :
And here is a weirder one yet. The Great Plenty. Never seemed to fit in anywhere. Not sure if it do to this day. As charming as it is in all its beatdriven pastoral glory !
In sum : The EP contains tracks from 2001 to 2009. It sounds like its 3 different bands. But it´s not. We evolve. And revolve.
If people are interested, I am sure the whole EP is available online somewhere.
