Dear friends,

As promised we’ve got some gooood news!
Our new release ‘Afterwords’ will come out in September!
Also we have now a brand new website made by Gema Peréz!
Check out her fb page: @Gemaperezphotography
Our webshop is under maintenance, and will be very soon online again.

Such exciting news!!! I'm glad they're releasing albums so frequently, I'm still listening to Disclosure quite a lot! So so happy about the new album!

PS: Silje looks like Amy Adams :P .

They say Areas is a cover, but of which song?

As you might know, we’ve released four exclusive tracks on a limited edition 10 inch vinyl EP called ‘Afterlights’.
We’ve received many requests to release this one on CD, so we’ve decided to do so.
Besides the original tracks this Afterlights CD will contain some brand new songs that we are finalizing as we speak! We hope to release this CD early 2013. We’ll keep you posted!


Finally! Afterlights turned into Afterwords, three months turned to nine. But what matters is: new music coming soon. :D

Yep, but we also have additional content for that waiting. I hope there will be a bundle with Disclosure, I will buy that.

OK, I've had this album for about 1 month (digital FLAC copy from ordering the physical copies) and it's mindblowing!

Bärenfels is absolutely stunning and my favorite track on the album.
I hardly recognize it as a remake of Heroes For Ghosts (some These Good People samples in there)

Btw, can I get an English translation of the speaking parts?

I just need to be careful about damaging my speakers because this sounds so great loud!

I must say that I have a hard time liking this album. First track is really good. Music on "Echoes..." also lovely, but why did TG cut the lyrics out here and on so many other songs on this album?? I mean, what is a "Remake"? IMHO basically a remake keeps the substance of the original. And then, there can be something added, or changed, or put in a different context. But here, in most of the "remakes" the substance (i.e. music + lyrics) mostly is just ignored. I'm afraid exactly this process is what I always defined as a crappy remix.
Ok, here the remixes are from the artist itself. And apart from "Bärenfels" the music is good. So, if you look at this opus as a remix album it's interesting.

Well, after the amazing Disclosure it's hard not to be disappointed, I guess. It's surely not as bad as the text above may sound. But there is just not much to be enthusiastic on Afterwords. Many tracks are "nice" (all three tracks starting with an A ;-) ), Gemini III is pretty good, maybe the best of the Geminis. But only the first track is a winner for me.

Not yet I could hear the album, but reviews in the Internet are very good.
