RCD 2071 - Skyphone: Avellaneda (CD)
Skyphone belong to a new generation of Danish musicians that also include bands like Under Byen and Efterklang. Musically it´s possible to place them somewhere between Efterklang, Sigur Ros and Swedish group Tape. In the Rune Grammofon catalogue Skyphone is probably closest in spirit and musical ideology to Svalastog and the more melodic sides of Alog. With ”Avellaneda” they have further developed the ideas of their acclaimed ”Fabula” debut into a seamless blend of acoustic and electronic elements, rich in detail and sonic refinement, with the occasional touch of Scandinavian folk music providing a strong melodic base.
