B°TONG’s “A Fleeting Moment Of Superabundance” is available now from the French record labels Force Majeure and Les Nouvelles Propagandes. The new release is out on black vinyl or digitally. Note that the vinyl comes with a download code and is limited to only 300 copies.

This album is quite a chance for the Swedish-Swiss project B°TONG, also known as Chris Sigdell. For the first time, he’sactually playing instruments and recording live. Before this, he solely used samples and recorded sounds to create his pieces. The album has three long, ambient songs and for the first time they can be played live.

Sigdell was part of the German band NID from 1995 to 2005. As B°TONG, he focuses on experimental sound, creating moody, dark soundscapes. When performing, Chris uses microphones, metal objects, and even kitchen tools. These sounds are then modified using effects.

B°TONG has some shows coming up to promote the album:

  • 23rd Sep: GummiLyd 16, Drammen
  • 26th Sep: Støberiet, Copenhagen
  • 27th Sep: Haerverk, Oslo
  • 28th Sep: Knust, Trondheim
  • 30th Sep: Klikken V Festival @ Boksen, Oslo
  • 14th Oct: Fab In 4 Festival, Lodz

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
