Edinburgh Leisure release new single ‘Startup’ on Tenement Records.
Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Die Gefahr In Jazz’, it follows 2016’s ‘Contemporary Art In Digital Culture’ by the band, formed of Keith Farquhar and T Fraser.
Farquhar is an visual artist and former vocalist of The Male Nurse, sister band to Country Teasers, and best known for their two Peel sessions of 1997 & 1998 including single ‘My Own Private Patrick Swayze’.
Fraser is one half of the duo ******** (newly released on Domino Records’ imprint Weird World), a collaboration also known as [Fraser, Ormston], which featured at Counterflows 2019 and includes artist Ailie Ormston.
The album was written largely with the Rhyme Zone search engine tool and recorded mostly on iPhone 5s, using instrumentation of staple guns, masking tape, supplement bottles and blister packs with “Apple-hack sounds and misuses”.
The duo categorise their sound as ‘iPod Shuffle’, describing the new release as “a harmonious cacophony of mammal and machine processes”.
The album is available on limited edition vinyl and digitally.
