The Flower Farmer Prunes...

This week finally sees the release of Flower Farmer's "Prunes". The good folk at Reckno have waited almost three years whilst Florian tried to carefully prune the original improvisations down to a listenable length, without damaging the essential character of the original floral arrangements, or the essential character of his brain.

The result is over 40 minutes of relentless electronic foam, suitable for late night f-zero drives and midday sun-touched ferry rides.

By magical serendipity, the album is presented as a split cassette release, with the other side taken up by Goodiepal's early '90s ambient opus "Havet". Incroyable! I handled the artwork for both sides (reversible sleeve!), and had a lot of fun with it.

You can hear the whole thing and order the cassette over at the Reckno bandcamp page. They've also released a new tape by Campbell Kneale's Our Love Will Destroy The World this week, just in time for the summer. It makes me want to go to the beach - highly recommended.

Here's the final track from Prunes...

Florian is occasionally sending in tunes from his current Miniatures project, so fans can expect to hear that completed c. 2016.
