SWIT’s Long Player of the week: Greetings from the Liminal by Prunk Möbel

Old papers thrown away,
Old garments cast aside,
The talk of yesterday,
Are things identified;
But time once torn away
No voices can recall:
The eve of New Year’s Day
Left the Old Year lost to all.

John Clare

Ya Tosiba turned us on to Prunk Möbel last year. We asked Henrik Langgård (for it is he) to get in touch whenever he might be releasing some new music and, thankfully, he took us at our word. In fact he sent us this beautiful letter about his new LP “Greetings from the Liminal”. It’s a rather fetching calling card and the music contained within (metaphorically) did not disappoint.

Prunk Möbel’s second release “Greetings from the Liminal” is a collection of electronic-music improvisations. The music charts a journey made on New Year’s Day. Spontaneous and beautiful, it captures for me the unique feeling that the turning of the year has, the passage of time from the past into the future, standing at the gates, breathing in, pausing, looking back and then striding forward, down the coastline of endless possiblilites and hidden fears.I really love it, have a listen I think you will too.

The image on the stamp is obtained from a rose painted corner cabinet made by one of Prunk Möbel’s distant relatives. The LP is released on Take It Easy Policy a small, free spirited record label and publishing house run by Emil Høgset, Espen Friberg and friends in Oslo, Norway.
