SLUMBERLAND

SLUMBERLAND

Installation-music to Arty Farty? ‘Slumberland’ of musician and filmaker Jochem Baelus (ex-Echo Beatty) shows it doesn’t always has to be that way.

Hair dryers with harmonics, deformed knitting needles, super 8 projectors and a combination of drums and sewing machines are the instruments at service, enriched by Baelus’ raw and raunchy guitar parts. Think 'Suicide' VS 'Swans'.

Early 2013 the Dutch indie record label ‘De Zesde Kolonne’ released the “Slumberland by Slumberland” LP, followed by supports for Tindersticks, King Dude and Parquet Courts only a year later. In the beginning of 2017 one of his tracks made the compilation of the New York based label “Dymaxion Groove Records”, in good company of Dan Deacon, Silver Apples, Jad Fair and many others.

Just recently he joined forces with 2 great drummers, Frederic Meulyzer (Hamster Axis of the One-click Panther) and Alfredo Bravo (Flying Horseman), which elevates the whole expercience to a higher level. Long live the persuasive, ghostly voice and dark, alternative, repetitive sound of Slumberland.
