search of a sound between shoegaze, lo-fi and electronics, this is the
music of a voice finding itself. Handcrafted with a passionate
feel, topped with down to earth, unstrained vocals. The first track
sets the standard and from there to the last seconds you are disarmed.
Take it to your heart and carry it with you.
Fresh and vital, with a strong sense of direction, bridging the gap between Slowdive, Labradford and Dntel.
Musique TLR is Peter Tollmar, a high school teacher in Haninge. Resident in Stockholm, Sweden.
started producing music under the name of Musique TLR in my bedroom in
Stockholm in 2003, working with various string instruments (guitars,
dulcimer, banjo), melodica, accordion, software synthesizers, samples,
tape echo and vocals. I am trying to create a kind of mix between the
precision, lifelessness and repetition of the digital sounds and the
errors, scratches and disturbance that comes from using amps, guitars
and tape echoes from the early 1960's." - Peter
Music written, performed and produced by Peter Tollmar. Recorded in Stockholm and New York 2003-2008.
