Fur Power!

We, Grumbling Fur, are releasing our second full length album 'Glynnaestra' through Thrill Jockey records on July 22nd. Here's the bumph...
Daniel O’Sullivan of Ulver and Guapo and Alexander Tucker (Imbogodom) have announced that they'll be joining forces again as Grumbling Fur for a new album of psychedelic sonic explorations, Glynnaestra. The duo "have crafted an avant-pop album assembled as one would a collage," reads the text accompanying the album's release. "This structural foundation is built up via an eclectic array of instruments, both acoustic and modified, to pulsating electronic sounds. ... As their history attests, this is a group unbound from the restrictions of traditionalism and unafraid to shed the pretence of pure abstraction. There's a tradition of subterranean Englishness at play, harking back to This Heat's Deceit and Eno's Another Green World. In their first fully realised album as a duo, the process and texture ripple with a kind of electro-gnosis. Glynnaestra herself (an archaic goddess divined by Tucker and O'Sullivan) presides over the record, transcendent and sphinx like: an apt muse for an album of such lovely and powerful music." 

We're also featured in Serena Korda's film 'The Transmitters' currently showing at Camden Arts Centre as part of her new solo show 'Aping The Beast'. More details here. We're performing live third eye soundtracks to coincide with three ritual dance pieces around a 15ft green latex dinosaur puppet.
