Port Almond is the new alter ego of Norwegian singer-songwriter Rune Simonsen - also known as the lead singer of Washington (Mount Washington) and Lagoonbird. This new self-titled album was recorded fully analogue during a 3-day session in February 2018. It was produced by Guy Sternberg at LowSwing Studio in Berlin.
Recorded live with minimum overdubs, the album is completely computer free. It features Port Almond's unique songwriting style: an extraordinary mixture of soft guitar picking and whispering vocals backed up by a raging, free improvising 7 piece band. Everything is recorded directly to analogue tape using LowSwing's unique collection of vintage
equipment from the 60's and 70's.
The songs of Port Almond range from intimate ballads like the folky “The River Ankh” - featuring the British avantguard trumpet player Tom Arthurs - to the dreamy “Send Your Love” with vibraphonist Oli Bott. From the wall-of-sound noise-pop “Cliff Diver” to Nigerian pop influenced “Destinations”. All examples of Port Almond's talent for strong melodies and intelligent lyrics.
The artwork for Port Almond's new album was created by Israeli renominated artist Nir Evron. The cover photo was taken at Devil's Island, the infamous French prison in French Guiana. It was used between 1852 and 1953 for the internal exile of French political prisoners.
"Port Almond" is available exclusively on pure analogue 180g vinyl and will be released on October 5th 2018 on LowSwing Records.
