Drekka


Drekka is primarily the work of Michael Anderson, along with an occasional rotating cast of characters primarily drawn from the Day2 Alliance - a community and collective of artists, labels, musicians and filmmakers which has been creating experimental folk and skewed pop masterpieces for almost a decade. He has recorded music and experimental projects, under various monikers, since 1986. In 1996, he took up the Drekka - moniker for himself as he lost a friend Read more on Last.fm
Drekka is primarily the work of Michael Anderson, along with an occasional rotating cast of characters primarily drawn from the Day2 Alliance - a community and collective of artists, labels, musicians and filmmakers which has been creating experimental folk and skewed pop masterpieces for almost a decade. He has recorded music and experimental projects, under various monikers, since 1986. In 1996, he took up the Drekka - moniker for himself as he lost a friend, gained another and and decided to pack up and move from Boston, Massachusetts to Chicago, Illinois, United States. Michael Anderson also runs Bluesanct Music, a Day2 label responsible for releases by Black Forest/Black Sea, Boduf Songs, Cindytalk, The Iditarod, In Gowan Ring, Low, Panteleimon, The Pilot Ships (featuring members of Stars of the Lid), Static Films, Vollmar and many more. When Drekka's debut full length Take Care to Fall was released on Bluesanct Music in 2002, reviews incorrectly decided Drekka was the vanity project a label owner. This is not the case.

Michael Anderson has recorded music and experimental projects, under various monikers, since 1986. Bluesanct Music was begun in 1996 to celebrate and share the music of Drekka and its Day2 friends. Drekka has toured extensively in Europe as well as the United States, with like-minded artists such as Jessica Bailiff, The Iditarod, In Gowan Ring, Annelies Monsere, Rivulets, Stone Breath, Vollmar. And despite only having released two proper full-length albums since 1998, it has contributed tracks to literally dozens of compilations as well as self-releasing many singles, EPs and short-run cassette releases. In short, Drekka has been a long-standing record collectors nightmare; a case that will soon be rectified with a series of releases collecting these varied and widespread orphans.

The first in this series will be a double-CD issued on Morc Records this winter. Affinity can be heard to such diverse contemporaries such as The Microphones/Mt. Eerie, Svarte Greiner, Machinefabriek and Xiu Xiu. While deep felt inspiration is drawn from such luminaries as Flying Saucer Attack, Coil, The Halfer Trio, Current 93, and Nurse With Wound. http://www.bluesanct.com/bands/drekka Read more on Last.fm.
