It's time for Banana Split with TRUS! and kleemar!
Mr. Moonlee has joined powers with God Bless This Mess, a record label from Prekmurje (a region in Slovenia), and proudly announces a double nice surprise - a second release this year by TRUS!, and kleemar's eagerly awaited debut album, which we’ve been waiting for the last decade. These nice guys joined forces, peeled the banana, threw the peel in front of your legs, sliced the banana in half, served it in the form of a collaborative vinyl record, and named it “Banana Split”. “Banana Split” brings a double exciting dose of an insightful musical expression. Full of energy and curiosity, TRUS! fill their side of vinyl with post-punk playfulness, indie-electronic mischief and seductiveness of trashy pop. Therefore, it's simply impossible to put their musical expression inside the usual genre compartments and pull up obvious comparisons with other bands, which is just one more reason to cock our ears and simply spin the music. On the other side of the disc, kleemar took care of sentimental ethereal electronics which explore the subtle melancholic microambients and invokes a delightful atmosphere. Kleemar remains indefinable by genre, as well, as he draws influence from very diverse artists such as Mount Kimbie, Dan Deacon, Gold Panda, Four Tet, Album Leaf, Caribou … ”Banana Split” will be released on 17th December 2013 as a 12'' vinyl and free download where each can also decide about the amount of the support. For those dying to know how Banana Split tastes like, vinyl pre-orders are already available, and music is also ready to listen and download on Bandcamp. The release parties will take place on 20th December 2013 at Gromka, Ljubljana, and 21st December at MIKK in Murska Sobota. Also, TRUS! and kleemar have prepared a special surprise for these occasions, but we'll just have to wait and see.
