|Absolutely Free Self Titled Limited Vinyl LP
· Absolutely Free are a trio based in Toronto. The group
formulate musical experiments based on instrumentation,
compositional structure and other formal qualities ubiquitous to popular rock music. Following years of touring and releasing albums with defunct art punk band DD/MM/YYYY, the members of Absolutely Free set out to create a more hypnotic, patient music that integrates analogue electronics, African polyrhythms, psychedelia, Bollywood and Krautrock.
· Having released a series of well received singles, ‘UFO’ / ‘Glass Tassel’ (2012) and ‘On The Beach’ / ‘Clothed Woman, Sitting’ (2013), Absolutely Free entered the studio with producer Mike Haliechuk (Fucked Up, Austra) and set out for an ambitious debut, melding elements of their favourite rock and contemporary records spanning the last several decades.
· While their singles served as brief introductions to their sound spectrum, ‘Absolutely Free.’ is a proper introduction and perfect example of their ability to hone a diverse spectrum while maintaining a unified narrative.
· The result displays fragments of Phil Spector, Kraftwerk, Terry Riley, Gang of Four and modern neo-psychedelia.
