You might be thinking to yourself, "Who the fuck are Dag Rosenqvist and Rutger Zuydervelt?" Chances are you'd be more likely to recognize them under the monikers they normally use to create music. Rosenqvist happens to be known as Jasper TX and Zuydervelt is none other than Machinefabriek. Yes, this is a collaboration of epic proportions.
These two joined forces before a couple years ago on Vintermusik, so this isn't unprecedented. However, that doesn't mean this isn't fantastic. Because it is.
Feberdröm is a mini 3" CD containing one 24 minute song (titled "Feberdröm"). It's a beautiful 24 minutes filled with hissing white noise and shrill high end notes. There's throbbing drones laying down on the bottom coupled with soft turntable-esque crackle and pops. Everything shifts shape, fading, morphing, and it all melds together perfectly. It's certainly a song worthy to bear the names Rosenqvist and Zuydervelt.
Put out on the Odradek label in a limited edition of 200 copies. The CD comes packaged in an Origami style fold out sleeve. It's a bitch to try and put back together but it looks awesome.
P.S. Sorry for the shitty music player. I had to use a different file hosting service because the mp3 is over 50MB and my usual one won't allow that and the new one doesn't allow hotlink but it had it's own music widget blahblahblah, click here to download the song.
