A wonderful thing happened! The cover for ‘Killing something that’s already dead’ won a Silver Award at Creative Circle friday evening! That’s amazing and so well deserved.
The guys from OddFischlein had two works shortlisted at the award show – and both of them got a prize. This is so well deserved.
We are so happy to be a part of this and we are really proud to know such talented folks.
Go ahead and read about Creative Circle and see their mention of the cover here.
And by the way. Today it is exactly four months since our record was released. It’s been great so far. Really great.
We have been getting so much more attention that we expected. Great reviews. Listeners and buyers from all over the world. A lot of feedback on the art work. A few very dedicated fans. It’s been really great.
Since you are reading this post, you are also in some way a part of this and we ow you a huge ‘thank you’. Thank you!
We are starting to work on new tracks, new vinyl designs and maybe videos and apps. And we are really looking forward to it.
Frans + Anders

French blog @diffuser.net listened to our music and they like what they listened to.
As so many times before we are flattered that anyone takes the time to listen to and write about our work. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. And merci too :-).
The French speaking reader can jump over to @diffuser.net and read the full review here. Others can – like I did – use Google Translate to get a sense of what they are writing. There are some flattering stuff there… An example is the words about the opening track ‘Averages‘:
“Dès le premier titre, on en prend plein les écoutilles. Averages est un vrai tour de force, une démonstration du talent de nos deux compositeurs. On ne s’ennuie pas une seconde au cours des presque 6 minutes du morceau, emportés que l’on est par un tourbillon musical et vocal qui nous nous prend du début à la fin, les premières notes du morceau suivant nous sortant d’un état quasi hypnotique. Un plaisir à écouter au casque, ou dans le noir sur un bon système de sonorisation!“.
Thanks a lot

The cover for ‘Killing something that’s already dead’ has been shortlisted for a Creative Circle Award in the category ‘design:product print’. That’s a well deserved recognition of OddFischlein’s magnificent design, if you ask us.
Watch the cover on and what it’s up against on Creative Circle Awards website and cheer for success on the 11th of May.
While on the subject of the cover we want to show you a small video that a couple of guys from the cool Manacles of Acid outfit from the UK made recently.
Thanks! Go have a listen to their own cool analogue synthesizer stuff at themanaclesofacid.com.

You should really go to DJ Foods web page and take a look at the brilliant pictures he took of the album.
The blog post about Machine, dear is here but you should really check out some of his own work that is quite spectacular.
He took 14 great pictures and writes this about the artwork:
“I received this beautiful item the other day after seeing it on both the RokRiot and Hardformat sites. Upon watching the short film of the record being opened (see below) I knew I had to have a copy. The group is Machine, Dear and the album is called ‘Killing Something That’s Already Dead’. Designed by Klaus Matthiesen of OddFischlein, there are only 150 copies and you can grab one here.”

Undertoner listened to ‘Killing something…’. They gave us 3 out of 6 stars and are uncertain about it’s qualities.
Read the review here.
We appreciate them taking the time to review the album.
Want to read the other reviews? We got everything from 3 to 5 stars and from “reluctance” to “beautiful”. Go to the press section to read them all and feel free to tell us what YOU think.
Actually we would love to hear what you think… The album is free to stream or download.

We have just found another short – but very positive – review/mention of the album at Andrew Dubbers blog called ‘.com/music’.
Go read it here.
If you want to know who he is, visit Andrew Dubber at his site andrewdubber.com.
“Finely crafted, aesthetically beautiful electronic-inflected minimal indie rock from Århus in Denmark. Arrangements and vocal reverb put you in large, gallery-like spaces. This is music that gives you room to enter and walk around. Take your time with it.“.
Nice words. Thanks, mr. Dubber.
