The year 2010 contained a lot of highlights: as well on the personal level (hell yeah, baby number two!) as on the musical level. We ignited the Fremdtunes-engine, put out some incredible releases, connected with great musicians/producers and had lotsofun. To Fremdkunst (and I think I can speak for the whole band) our gig at Festival Mundial 2010 was an absolute highlight: we joined forces with Eric Vloeimans and Baba Sissoko on stage and created some of the most surprising tunes we ever made. Because we’d like to share this with you. we’ve uploaded the opening-track on soundcloud. Enjoy!
To finish the year of properly we’d like to add the 2010 highlight of Mister Adam: “2010 highlight was the worldcup semi final against Uruguay, especially the beautiful goal by Giovanni van Bronckhorst. ‘Stunning goal by the Dutch captain Gio van Bronckhorst, their was plenty of fantasy about that. What possesed him to have a go?’ An English football commentator said…”
December 5th Fremdtunes will release on bandcamp the free ‘Zauberschwein by candlelight EP’ by Fremdkunst. We’ve already uploaded the track ‘It’s a beauteous evening’ and now we’ve uploaded ‘Alone and never lonely (Generation A)’. So, give it a listen!
