discography

snails Hans Fjellestad - Snails R Sexy [2007/Accretions, ALP041]
buy cd | iTunes | read reviews

"Fjellestad is a master of analogue synthesis. 'Snails R Sexy' manages somehow to merge the famously warm and tactile nature of the Moog with more current-sounding elements of sonic abstraction and edgy noise. There's some of the manic energy of Keiji Haino's recent electronic work here, but at times it gives way to moments of surprising spontaneous delicacy that recall the synth improvisations of Thomas Lehn." - The Wire

"Donkey nurture the spontaneity, the improvisation, the need to force out some fresh abomination, that marks the best of the scene." - The Wire

klh Hans Fjellestad - Kobe Live House [2006/Accretions, ALP038]
buy cd | iTunes | read reviews

"The musical style ranges from fairly accessible piano lines to staggering, dagger assaults of synthwork. The blend of organic and electronic and mildly experimental and wildly avant garde makes for a bracing listen... Fresh and truly the bearer of a jazz heart, 'Kobe Live House' is strongly urged as a listen for fans of intelligent music." - Raves

"The music will sound like nothing you have heard before. You may actually find it breathtakingly exciting and awe-inspiring, without really being able to say why. But in a time very far from now, your children's children's children's children will play this record in whatever format the future will come up with and think to themselves: 'This is the coolest thing we've ever heard!'" - tokafi

"They organaize 'HADAKA DENKYU NO YORU' is the party, with OORUTAICHI, OVE-NAXX!! It is the session of BAIYON and HANS with LAP TOP SYNTHESIZER. It is not only serious sound but it is pop!!" - Jet Set

33 Hans Fjellestad - 33 [2003/Accretions, ALP032]
buy cd | iTunes | read reviews

"This has been one of the most rewarding albums I have ever listened to; especially in terms of never really coming to definite grips about its nature, its source, the feelings it elicits. More than simply being able to find new notes each time, Fjellestad has found a way to create a 'slippery music' that makes a mockery of the deductive process. Highly recommended." - DaveX, WDBX 91.1FM

big sur Donkey - Big Sur [2002/Accretions, ALP028]
buy cd | read reviews

"An expansive, never-ending battle of fantastic sounds with references ranging from Morton Subotnick and AMM to '80s harsh noise artists - sometimes, it's hard to believe so much substantial din is emanating from only two people." - Grooves

"Rumbling like brown infra-hoses beneath the floor, as synthesized rats gnaw at the cables before encountering a fabulous electrocution by crude amplifier-destined electricity from nuclear power plants thrown out across the prairies like doomsday ice-cream cones of infertility... Trummerflora music!" - Sonoloco

"Donkey assume the quality of aural graffiti, jagged hints and smeared traces of illicit communication between members of some clandestine network." - The Wire
