Stirring from the slumber

Posted in News, Thoughts with tags , on December 25, 2014 by fossbrenna

It’s been quiet around here for a long while. A range of other activities and duties has left little time for the glories of the DIY tape life. That is about to change, although just for a brief moment.

There will be one more release on Fossbrenna Creations. It is a Vemod tape release, and as the plans are now, it looks like it will be the last, at least in the main line of releases, as they have traditionally been done (dubbed, cut, and distributed by yours truly, that is). It seems fitting to the end it here – it is both Fossbrenna release number ten, and by now it is approximately ten years since I started working with this little label. To end with Vemod, my own band, strikes me as equally suitable, since it is in many ways the reason I founded Fossbrenna Creations, and also an important part of the reason for now putting it to sleep.

More news to come of FBM010 closer to its release.

There are loose plans of other related projects, and even some sort of continuation, but knowing my slow self, I see no reason to present these visions before I know for certain that they will materialize. I would surely love to do some modest and low key label work in the future, but time will have to tell.

Midwinter is upon us – time to center oneself once more. Be well!

Old interview

Posted in Related with tags , , on June 10, 2012 by fossbrenna

An old Fossbrenna Creations interview from Kaleidoscope #6 has just been dug up and published on the Kaleidoscope blog. The questions were answered in 2007. A few fresh words on the current situation are to be read as well.

Things (and attitudes) have changed since those days, but some things remain the same. Again: Always different, always the same.

A quick fix of nostalgia for the cassette cultists and the underground dwellers. Thanks to A. Klemi and Kaleidoscope.
