where are you now and who could you be talking to?

♫ Rangleklods – Young And Dumb

  • Who: Esben Andersen
  • What: Glitchy electro wonk-pop, kinda like When Saints Go Machine, Joe Goddard, Yalls
  • Where: Copenhagen, Denmark + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: Home EP is out now.
  • Why: Continuing the trend of covering Danish bands that Arletta already knows, I have this gem for you today. Rangleklods is a name Andersen made up to avoid preconceived notions about the sound of his music and once you wrap his syrupy and sideways sounds around your head you will understand why. Beats don’t stay on the designated park trail, vocals chop like clouds whipping through the sun’s ray’s, and various other instruments fritter about like so many woodland creatures preparing for winter. Plus “Young And Dumb” has that kind of low and bendy bass line that perks my ears right up. Follow it down the rabbit hole and you will find yourself somewhere strange and intriguing. I’m already there. Listen to “Behaviour” and you will know Peter Gabriel is there too.

Brandon is obsessed with popcorn, sandwiches, and new music.

    I read it and felt guilty! Sorry… :) And big <3 for Rangleklods!

    Ha! You should feel guilty! (Not really) Why is your finger so on the Danish music pulse!? Making me look bad… :)

  • http://www.TheBurningEar.com/ Brandon @ TBE

    I don’t know what that means but I probably agree.

  • Arletta

    Again – sorry…? But my finger is only on the Danish music pulse, while your finger is on what’s best in world music pulse, so you still win :)
    BTW Rangleklods will release debut album “Clouds” soon. And the new single premiere will take place on Monday, looking very much forward to it!

    haha, thanks Arletta.

    I like “Clouds” but its not as weird and funky as the Home EP. I’m still looking forward to a full album.

  • http://www.TheBurningEar.com/ Brandon @ TBE

    Yeah, dirty dirty!

  • Arletta

     I think you can hear the echos of Twin Shadow music in “Clouds”… I like it, but I hope the album will be more like the EP. The release date is my birthday – so it better be a great piece of music as a gift from Denmark :))

    Haha, yeah! They better get you the right gift!
