Lost Tribe Sound is honored present two albums from the Danish trio, Skyphone. 'Marsh Drones,' their first new album in over 5 years, will be released along side their previous album 'Hildur' on August 23rd, 2019. While 'Hildur' was digitally self-released to a limited audience back in 2014, LTS felt the album deserved far more attention than it received. Plus, what could be more satisfying than hearing it on high quality vinyl for the first time.Our admiration for Skyphone's music has gone on longer than LTS has been in existence, beginning with the release of their first album 'Fabula' on Norwegian label, Rune Grammaphon in 2004. Our first experience came during the Mary Anne Hobbs show, when the song "Kinamands Chance" came on the air. The music felt alive, there was a delicate warmth to it all it's own. Even if the music could be lazily classified as electronic, the sonic components felt as if they'd been 3D printed, then hand-aged by a smith. It had this incredibly tactile feel to it, as if these sound objects were in the same room as us, skittering about, performing ear-bending stunts and blurring the lines between the acoustic instruments and their synthetic counterparts. From that moment on we were hooked, keeping a close ear on Skyphone's music ever since. It's quite surreal to now be helping to the trio to release not one but two albums. Though we'd stop shy of declaring Skyphone the Godfather's of this type of highly intricate electro-acoustic music, they definitely brought new levels of inventiveness and authenticity to the scene. They are masterful at combining a multitude of instruments and genres that could easily go wrong in lesser hands, where rogue electronic rhythms, half-drunken synths, and slow burning jazz and dub fueled progressions give way to velvet-coated layers of guitar. It's the kind of music where anything seems possible.'Hildur' was recorded at Hotell Hildur, an abandoned railway hotel, located in Ever�d of south Sweden. The trio utilized a number of location throughout the hotel to lend to the acoustics of the recordings. Mads recalls, "There was a really particular vibe at the place, the acoustics were great and there were hallways and rooms that allowed for different kinds of recording. And an old drum kit that we recorded using a very wide stereo setups (using high-end mics) - you can hear remnants of those recordings all over the album. Also, the slightly out-of-tune piano was recorded there."
