Villagers writes with unabashed romance about technology on its newest full-length player with the traditionally cryptic title The Art Of Pretending To Swim. Or, more specifically, how technology restrains daily life and hides our own helplessness. O ‘Brien is a ponderer, never afraid to tackle the tough issues, and that cerebral charm always makes Villagers all the more stunning.

Klangstof is a dynamic Norwegian / Dutch band led by Koen van de Wardt.

Like his hero Thom Yorke, Van de Wardt tends to feelings of unrest, alienation and isolation.
