New Albums from Frans de Waard and Michael Trommer Available Now

Two records from Daniel Crokaert's Mystery Sea and Unfathomless labels have recently been released. From the former comes Courrière, a new album from Frans de Waard. That's the album cover above. Frans de Waard, who runs Vital Weekly, explains that the record features recordings from a canoe trip that his friends went on—he himself was too afraid to accompany them. Consequently, the record is described as a "soundtrack of a transcended phobia". You can read more information, listen to samples, and purchase Courrière here.

Similarly aquatic is Night Swimmer, the new album from Michael Trommer. This marks Trommer's debut on the Unfathomless label and it features three tracks created from "field-recordings of nocturnal swims and paddles made during the summer of 2013 in Ontario's Georgian Bay." You can read more information about the album here. You can also hear samples and purchase the record on the same page. Both of these releases are limited to 200 CDs and come with an additional art card on 300 gr satin paper.
