“The Absurd Silence Of A Mute World” is a collaborative album by multi-instrumentalists Samuel Vaney and Loïc Grobety under the OLOMUHD moniker. The project was initiated in early 2022 and combines their interests in abrasive textures and deconstructed rhythms.

You might know Samuel Vaney from his work with Eeli Helin as part of the Swiss/Finnish drone-rock duo known as Fargue. This group, founded late in 2019, is notable for its multi-instrumental prowess, focusing on ambient, drone, and post-rock genres.

The album is out via the French label Cyclic Law. It holds just one track that explores ‘both contemplative and intense soundscapes’.

Drummer Michael Anklin contributed to the album as well next to vocalists Hemlock Smith and Mütterlein. Samuel Vaney handled the mixing and mastering in Switzerland. The album’s artwork was created by Stefan Thanneur.

It will be released on March 29th in a limited edition of 300 CD copies, each presented in a 6-panel digisleeve with matt lamination with a running time of 43 minutes and 31 seconds. You can order it here on Bandcamp.

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.
