Watch a Gritty Video From Reindeer
'Field Reports From The Western Lands' drops on March 30 via Anette Records.
James Reindeer is set to release his full-length debut on March 30 via Berlin-based experimental outpost Anette Records.
Field Reports From The Western Lands is a conceptual sequel to the fbcabric & reindeer LP It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Whom You Know, presenting a 16-track collection that utilizes various field recordings collected around Europe and North America, as well as dialogue samples of President Truman and Robert Oppenheimer, to take you on a sonic journey “through the fallen Western World of murky dreams and alluring weightlessness.”
The first single from the LP, “Description of a Struggle,” borrows its title from the first published story by Franz Kafka, and is a perfect introduction to the cold, murky atmospheres present across the album. The track, like the album itself, touches on elements of post-rock, downtempo, and gritty trip-hop, with its accompanying film following suit with images shot in abandoned structures throughout the Plagwitz district of Leipzig, Germany.
