The Icelandic Stafrænn Hákon will release his 7th album in November / December, „Prammi“. The album contains 13 compositions that were written and produces by Olafur Josephsson, the driving force of Stafrænn Hákon.
Since 2001 Olafur has recorded under the Stafrænn Hákon moniker and released large amount of records under different monikers or projects such as Calder, Per:Segulsvið and Náttfari (who released the wonderful „TÖF“ last year.)
„Prammi“is a balance between a lighter melodic song structure and heavy wall of guitar sounds and drones. On his last record „Sanitas“ Stafrænn was experimenting with more poppier structures throughout the record with a less focus on the heavier aspect.
„Prammi“contains segments of scary guitar drones and also a large amount of more constructed compositions that might even sound like a collaboration between Phil Collins and Sun Ra with Seal at the mixing desk.
The Greek underground label „Sound in Silence“will release the record in a limited of 300 copies.
