Humbug

Records by Continental Fruit


Artist info:

Still one of the better kept secrets of the Norwegian underground scene, Continental Fruit is one Jon Øyvind Lærum and his synths, effect boxes, and a trembling voice. C.F. has been active since '95 but has a refreshingly slim discography - there's the Smalltown Supersound CD from a few years back, a 7", a cassette, and the Humbug CD-R "Gently Carved Into Sound" (this is currently re-released as a free download with printable new cover art - check it out (http://www.twilightluggage.com/rel/TLMP04)). Continental Fruit music is often drowsy, abstract, downtempo, very humble and unassuming DIY sounds that can in fact be unsettling and even scary if you listen closely, but also quite beautiful.
