new Kria Brekkan

Wildering is the vinyl-only 7" solo debut of former múm siren Kria Brekkan. Last year's collaboration with husband Avey Tare was met with decidedly mixed reviews, and I have a feeling this one will elicit similar feelings. To call the bizarre and spooky title track "lo-fi" would be a huge understatement; it sounds like Kria utilized the same recording techniques they were using in 1860, only underwater. Still, there's something hauntingly sweet and otherworldly about b-side lullabye "gömul vísa um vorið" that's compelled me to keep it on repeat for much of the evening:

Kria Brekkan :: gömul vísa um vorið

That voice...maybe you have to be in the right mood, and I guess I am. Buy the 7-inch here, while it lasts. Here's a clip of Kria performing another brand new song called "Ravine" -- which was inspired by a recent trip to Japan with her husband -- live for East Village Radio a few days ago:

When I click the link to buy the 7" I have 28 items already in my cart. Not sure if it's your cart info in the url or something but just a heads up.
