Hailing from Brussels in Belgium comes Michiel Geluykens aka Candstandy.
Early March he nudged me towards his first full album release for a possible JNN release. It needed but a few listens to know this very much deserved a spot on the label.
His original idea was to create a dreamlike atmosphere using abstract sounds and motions. I must confess that this turned into a very warm, yet still experimentally edgy result that will guide the listeners ears into a comfortzone with slow drones and soft poppy moods.
These slow buddening eight tracks were recorded during 1 week in november 2009 using Guitar, E-Bow, Effects and Laptop.
All tracks written, recorded, edited and mixed by Michiel Geluykens. Artwork by Michiel Geluykens.
