Description:

Sound Effect and Deep Distance Records present "Daydream Melodies", the debut album by Free/Slope, aka Gothenburg, Sweden-based Daniel Fridlund Brandt. Daniel, also a member of Animal Daydream and My Brother the Wind, is not your average bedroom producer/artist, "Daydream Melodies" is  a fully realized, rich-sounding, krautrockish psych mini-masterpiece of the highest caliber! Based on studio jams and improvisations, Free/Slope, through his almost jazz-like compositional technique, creates instrumental music with a classicist song-structure, while retaining some unmistakably loose, improvisational sensibility. His organic approach to recording adds to the spontaneity and acid-drenched feel of the record; woozy and otherworldy at the same time, "Daydream Melodies" demonstrates some rare musicality and artistry on a no-less-than-magical sound canvas. A wide spectrum of influences, from Ashra and Harmonia to Radio Dept., Spacemen 3 and Broadcast, via late '60s California psych, Miles Davis, Steely Dan and Bo Hansson, informs Daniel's muse, the result being at the same time vulnerable, romantic, trippy and cool. "Daydream Melodies" is a collaborative effort between Sound Effect Records of Athens, Greece and Deep Distance Recordings of London and is out on June 30th on limited edition black and transparent clear vinyl, as well as digital download.
