Selling out

February 15th, 2010

Believe it or not but we still have boxes of unsold Friendly Noise titles! Now we want to get rid of them, since we’re no longer a record label. “SELLING OUT” is our last attempt at distribution of these CDs. Eight CDs for basically the price of shipping and package, a once in a lifetime give-away opportunity.

Please note: We have only a limited quantity of some titles. On the basis of first come, first served, your order will be shipped in the beginning of March. Promise. Go to our shop for prices, more info, and ordering!. Friday March 5th is the final date to order. What won’t get sold we’ll bury in the woods to be dug up by a future civilization. We owe them that, at least.

“Hearthand” as free download

January 27th, 2010

Since we’re not really functioning as a label anymore and therefore have problems distributing the vinyl edition of the best Swedish techno album ever made, we now offer it as a free download:

Download FYN 102: Liminals, “Hearthand”

If you want it on vinyl.

And a long overdue release party will take place on February 5th at Boom goes the dynamite! in Uppsala, with Liminals playing live.

THE END OF FRIENDLY NOISE AS RECORD LABEL

October 7th, 2009

The time has come for Friendly Noise to say goodbye. Goodbye to being a record label anyway. We will re-appear soon in an other, journalistic, guise, though. More about that later…

One last thing before we go:
We released 207 songs between 2003 and 2009, the most complete discography is at Discogs. This is an invitation to all of you to list your 10 favourite Friendly Noise songs. List them in order 1-10, and e-mail us your list (friendlynoise@gmail.com) or post it as a comment in this Facebook note. We will then compile a list that will be available as a free download as a document of our history.

Liminals’ album “Hearthand”, released later in October, will be our last record. It’s soon out… we’re waiting for the cover now. If anyone wants to review it or interview Liminals you’re welcome, just get in touch! You can listen to two songs from “Hearthand” on our myspace and read more about Liminals here.

Thanks for everything, for listening and for your attention,
Friendly Noise

TESTBILD!-MUSIK I NYA HENRIK MÖLLER-DVD:N

September 4th, 2009

“Det fina med de här filmerna (och även andra av Möller) är att de med små produktionsmedel och på kort tid lyckas genomborra svåra frågor som ensamhet, utanförskap och förnedring. Den svarta humorn är förfinad och visar ibland upp sig i sin extremaste form. Hade dessa filmer gjorts med en större produktion tror jag inte det hade blivit lika bra. Råheten förstärks bara genom att man märker och känner av den låga budgeten. Filmerna verkar också gjorda med stor kreativ lust och energi som exploderat i dessa små obehagliga och fantastiska verk. Ibland är det bara våld och död. Ibland är det rena poesin.” / SMOGG

Senare denna månad släpps Henrik Möllers DVD “Kaninhoran och andra barndomsminnen från Malmö”, som samlar det mesta och bästa av hans kortfilmsproduktion (innehåller alltså inte Malmö-filmerna som gjorts tillsammans med Video Direkt.), till exempel “Det trötta hatet” som visas ovan och de ritade Rufus-filmerna. Testbild! medverkar med en del musik på DVD:n. I vissa fall är musiken specialskriven (som till menyerna), men i andra fall används låtar från skivorna. Det är inte Friendly Noise som ger ut “Kaninhoran…”, men vi gillar Henrik Möller och vill gärna tipsa om att man kan förbeställa DVD:n här.

August 18th, 2009

Following up their message in a bottle on Vågor & strömmar from a couple of summers ago, Testbild! will release a new single, as yet untitled (catalogue number: FYN 105) in a hot air balloon this weekend in Malmö. The songs can only be heard on location in conjunction with the release, after that they will be permanently destroyed from all archives and forever lost. Come and watch its ascent… This will take place on Saturday August 22nd, at 6:30 in the evening, by the sea, next to Ljudkullen, Västra hamnen, Malmö. Bring your drink of choice…

FYN 104: Top Sound “A matter of precision” / “Francophilie”

August 4th, 2009

topsound4

Last year the Stockholm group Top Sound played live at the Friendly Noise club at Sugar Bar. Now we’re happy to release a single by them in our ongoing free mp3 series. If you’ve heard “A matter of precision” and “Francophilie” before do note that these are new and definite versions; proper late Summer hits!

“Embracing all clichés
detecting the flaws
Paris revisited
chords from the North Pole”

“Hollow, yet solid
analogue monotony
an enveloped incision
a matter of precision”

Download FYN 104: Top Sound “A matter of precision” / “Francophilie” here!
