Niels Gordon – Land (Release May 15)


Outside of Gothenburg, Sweden just where you feel the distance to the city and the forests starts to grow deep. That’s where Niels Gordon creates his music. Inspired by the woodlands that surrounds him as well as his dreams of the great cities of Europe.

On the 15th of May Niels Gordons debut album is released on vinyl and digitally via Lamour Records. Just like on Niels previous releases he offers soothing electronic music with hints to the cosmic 70s scene as well as the more electronic acts of the krautrock era.

Since his first EP ‘Ohrnacht’ (released in 2015) Niels Gordon has created his own world of solitary electronic music that has found its way around different corners of the globe. The solitude is manifested during his live performances where Niels is found on stage alone performing improvised versions of the songs without the aid of computers or backing tracks. Performances that has taken him to various stages. From opening for O.M.D. to smaller clubs and festivals.

REVIEWS and ARTICLES

Groove.de
Land (Lamour Records) von Niels Gordon aus Gävle klingt dagegen unverkennbar nach guter alter Handarbeit an Modular-Rack, Oszilloskop und Potentiometer. Nach frühen Kraftwerk, Cluster und anderen motorischen Soundstöpslern der (vorwiegend deutschen) Krautsiebziger in die schwedische Provinz von heute verpflanzt, wo das Synth-Gestrüpp bestens grünt und wuchert.”

Dark Entries
“Voor de liefhebbers van ‘Berlin school’ kosmische muziek of meditatieve synthesizerambient in het algemeen is het debuutalbum op LP van Niels Gordon een heel mooie aanwinst.”

Vintage Synth Explorer
“All we can say is that it must take guts to carry the amount of gear Gordon used during his concert outdoors into the elements. The concert lasted for nearly an hour and features six tracks by Gordon.”

Radio Nacional de España – RNE 3 Atmosfera
“Niels Gordon construye paisajes sonoros mágicos utilizando órganos caseros, sintetizadores analógicos y efectos que dan como resultado sonoridades muy armónicas, melódicas y melancólicas.”

Nordische Musik
“Obwohl Gordon eine beeindruckende Anzahl verwendeter Instrumente in den Album-Credits auflistet, vor allem Keyboards und analoge Synthesizer, ist die Musik frappierend minimalistisch.”

Last Day Dead
The ‘cosmic’ element is intense on this sublime piece of music, which it’s just unmissable for fans of Jean-Michel Jarre & Vangelis. A hgihly cinematic experience…

Musique Machine
“This sort of retro futurism is dependent on tone as much as structure, and Land really hammers that home.”

African Paper
“Bei all dem kann man nur das Fazit ziehen, dass Gordons “Land” für viele die Synthie-Entdeckung des Jahres sein dürfte. (J.G.)”

Release Music Mag
“The contrast of the machines and the woods and farmland surrounding the small stage in Niklas’ garden, together with the setting sun, made it a very cosy and well-needed event in these peculiar times. A reminder of sort how important live music is for many of us.”

Music Map
“Un buon modo per rendere più “organico” il pensiero inerente ad un elettronica meno sintetica rispetto a come siamo abituati a pensarla.”

Musik an sich
“Ich bin im Falle von Niels Gordon für die erste Variante, denn er macht das so charmante und selbstbewusst und mit dem nötigen Respekt gegenüber den Originalen, das es einfach auch Spaß macht, sich das Ganze anzuhören.
Nicht besonders innovativ, aber trotzdem kurzweilig und schön anzuhören.”

Pretty in Noise
Niels Gordon begann 2012 mit der Entwicklung seines eigenen Stils instrumentaler elektronischer Musik, um dem Ursprung der elektronischen Musik näher zu kommen. Das Ergebnis ist eine Art organische elektronische Musik mit einer ausgeprägten Krautrock / Berlin School-Atmosphäre. Zum Teil sehr elegische Klangwiederholungen, die kreativ aneinander gehängt neue Sphärenmusik entstehen lassen.”

“The music that Niklas makes now is electronic; reminiscent of what Tangerine Dream sounded like in the 80’s and 90’s. For those of us who love the analogue sounds, this is a pure dream to listen to. Sit down with a pair of good headphones or speakers and float away in wonderfully rich sound.”

White Lion Radio
“Niels should feel very proud of this album, he has worked very hard over the last few years, one thing you can tell from this recording is that he really enjoys what he does, and whilst there are the obvious influences across the album, he truly does have a unique sound of his own. Start the album, turn the lights off and absorb the music of Niels Gordon, you wont be disappointed.”
