After the highly acclaimed demo tape “Losid vo Bärge ond Tal”, the FRÄKMÃœNDT debut album “Urbärglieder” is released on Steinklang/ Percht: “Urbärglieder” is the amazing and unique debut CD of the Swiss Ur-Folk project FRÄKMÃœNDT which was born out of the idea to revive old sagas and nearly forgotten songs and atmospheres of the alpine regions of Switzerland. Performed in alemannic central-Swiss dialect, the songs on “Urbärglieder” simulate a journey through landscapes and sagas of the quaint regions of Switzerland. They let you chase through stormwinds with the wild hunt at mount Pilatus or stroll under the paintings of the danse macabre over the Spreuerbridge in Lucerne. One can meet the devil in the Schöllenen gorge and follow the alpine herdsmen during their sad walk down to the valleys in autumn. The album is alternated by two sound-accentuated sagas and two atmospheric pieces, letting one share the horrors of the ghost-house in Stans and the mythical ambiance inside the Mondmilchloch cave. On “Urbärglieder”, acoustic guitars, accordion, violin, flutes and various percussion instruments generate melancholic melodies full of nostalgia, but also rousing hymns which invite to dance. The album is very diverse and never gets boring. Without exaggerating, this is truly something new which was never heard before: Ur-Folk at its best! FRÄKMÃœNDT is definitely the originator of this sound. The album has a playing time of 67 minutes and it was mastered at Luftschutzkerker/ Switzerland. FRÄKMÃœNDT features cz of STURMPERCHT / DÂNNÂGÔISCHD / VINTERRIKET / ATOMTRAKT / NEBELKORONA etc. It is available in a deluxe DIGIPAK with 16-pages booklet and also as limited wooden box including a sticker, a t-shirt, a glass of Mondmilch, a jigger, stones from mount Pilatus and a small book of old Swiss sagas. With “Urbärglieder” a varied piece of extraordinary Ur-Folk music was born, telling with lots of heart’s blood and in its very own way the stories that are about to be forgotten. 15 songs / 67 min
