FRÄKMÜNDT im Herbst ebenfalls auf PROPHECY!
Nach längerer Pause melden sich die Schweizer Ur-Folker FRÄKMÜNDT mit einem neuen Album wieder - es erscheint im Herbst auf PROPHECY. Außerdem wird dort der Backkatalog neu veröffentlicht. Hier die Original-Infos vom Label:
"Landlieder & Frömdländler" and backcatalogue re-issues out in September | Pre-order available now!
On September 26th, Fräkmündt eventually make their debut on Auerbach Tonträger with their new album "Landlieder & Frömdländler", which will be released as Digipak CD, Gatefold LP, and 2CD book edition!
After two albums ("Urbärglieder" from 2010 and "Heiwehland" from 2011) as well as an EP ("Uufwärts E D' Föuse", 2010), "Landlieder & Frömdländler" is already the fourth record by Fräkmündt. With this effort, the group, which took its name from an old term for the fabled Mount Pilatus near Lucerne, stays true to its self-created genre "Swiss Ur-Folk". Fräkmündt, a band that since its inception ranks Anna Murphy (Eluveitie) amongst its regular members, perceive this as a unique mixture between new interpretations of traditional Swiss folk songs, indvidual compositions and tunes inspired by myths and legends from Central Switzerland, all of which are sung in authentic Swiss German as it is typical of the region.
While "Landlieder & Frömdländler" is Fräkmündt's most diverse and refined album so far, it perfectly exemplifies the ensemble's odd, rustic style. The musical spectrum ranges from thoughtful reflections on nature across wistful renditions of folk tales to drinking songs performed with Helvetian zest for life. With this, the musicians skilfully balance serious content and subtle humour, which makes their music compelling and tinged with Swiss local colour like no other.
In tandem with "Landlieder & Frömdländler" there will also be Digipak reissues of Fräkmündt's entire back catalogue, each album enhanced by a rare or yet unreleased bonus track. Click on the album covers below in order to get more information about the respective release and pre-order options!
