I’d like to announce the upcoming release of my brand new album FEVER DREAMS. You may have already heard the first taster track – the title song FEVER DREAMS I. The whole album is now mixed, mastered, artwork is prepared and standing by for manufacture. The new tracks have been produced by Jamie Hutchings (Bluebottle Kiss/Infinity Broke/The Tall Grass).
It has long been a dream of mine to release an album on vinyl and to make this dream a (hopeful) reality I will be crowdfunding the vinyl pressing via the Pozible platform. I have tried to be as imaginative as possible so that there are plenty of interesting rewards for anyone who can help by pre-ordering from my POZIBLE PAGE. There you can also read some history about the album, my band and the fact that I recorded this record with a group of my oldest friends. The campaign will be live on Tuesday 12th March.
You can out my introductory Pozible video here:
I was lucky enough to have French-Canadian artist Lenny Piroth-Robert paint a series of portraits of me which he submitted for the album art. Lenny is a man of many talents – his main day gig is working as a guitar luthier at Daddy Mojo Guitars and over the years he has created incredible instruments for bands such as Wilco, U2, Band Of Horses and Jack White. I was lucky enough to have a guitar built especially for me (Rosetta!) which you can see me holding in the painting above. On the side he is an extremely talented artist and the surreal atmosphere that he has created in the album art will be something to marvel at in a vinyl sized format. I’m still pinching myself at how lucky I am to be surrounded by such creative types that are willing to lend a hand to my musical projects.
Finally Fever Dreams I has already been receiving some airplay on Sydney radio and the Doubtful Sounds website had this to say about the new track:
“‘Fever Dreams I’ is a jaunty, noisey and unsettling journey into the psychology of virally-induced broken sleep. Moldre’s previous releases have been more melodic and often folkier in nature where this track points to a wider embrace of noisier textures and a wider palette of sounds, Distorted guitar sprays hard panned from the right speaker while a competing and complementary banjo adds a manic, fevered quality to the song and the rhythm section marches on with ominous insistency.”
