Two years after Lasse Loberg’s Back in the Days EP comes a new one – Fantoft Safari. This is a downtempo left field affair, just right for dark nights huddling round the radiator. Download now – name your price.
O Leão is a strange dreamlike affair, with drifting vocals and half-heard instruments. Disorientatingly beautiful. Good Times sets off down a different patch, full of reverb and handclaps. Londons Lonesome Park may lack a possessive apostrophe but does have a lonesome smoky sax. Endless Ancestral Landscapes is lost in the Norwegian woods amidst drones and delay. Fantoft Safari closes the EP with hushed indie feel and wobbly bass. Suitably strange.

There’s strange things happening at Fantoft. The quirky, wobbly kind of stuff. With guitars lulling and voices calling from unknown places. Far out in the Norwegian woods, where quiet is the new loud and black metal was born from dark wads of smoke. Everyone coming here is immediately pauperised. The only option to get staff of life is a place called safari. If dreams were like horses – we would all ride.
