Deep Distance (UK) and Sound Effect Records (Greece) join forces in presenting "Day Dream Melodies", the debut album by Free/Slope, aka Gothenburg, Sweden-based Daniel Fridlund Brandt. Daniel, (also a member of Animal Daydream and My Brother the Wind) is not your average bedroom recording artiste, his debut “Daydream Melodies” is nigh on epic in ambition- a fully realized, rich sounding kraut / psych mini masterpiece, heavy on nods to heroes for both label and artist including the likes of Manuel Gottsching and Spacemen 3. Based on studio jams and improvisations -and through his almost jazz-like compositional technique- Free/Slope creates instrumental music with a classicist song-structure, whilst retaining an unmistakably loose, improvisational sensibility. His organic approach to recording adds to the spontaneity and acid-drenched feel of the record; woozy and otherworldy at the same time… The album demonstrates a rare musicality and artistry on an almost epic sound canvas. A wide spectrum of influences, from Ashra and Harmonia to Miles Davis and from the Spacemen to Broadcast, via late '60s California psych, Steely Dan and Bo Hanson, informs Daniel's muse, the result being at the same time vulnerable, romantic, trippy and cool. "Daydream Melodies" is a collaborative effort between Sound Effect Records of Athens, Greece and Deep Distance Recordings of London.
