Studio's Dan Lissvik Preps Solo Record For Late Fall

Studio's Dan Lissvik Preps Solo Record For Late Fall
If you’re like us, you’ve been waiting desperately for a news update to tell you Studio are finally releasing their proper West Coast follow-up. Well, sorry to disappoint you but this isn’t that story. However, it is perhaps the next best thing: the band’s Dan Lissvik has dropped word he’s stepping out for some soon-to-be-released solo action.

Taking on the moniker D. Lissvik, the electronically-inclined Swede will leave the comforts of his blog-adored duo to release 7 Trx + Intermission, which will come via Studio’s imprint, Information, on November 24 on both twelve-inch and CD. And by the sounds of the few tracks posted on Lissvik’s MySpace page, this entirely instrumental, song title-less affair comes bearing many, if not all, of Studio’s beloved hallmarks: the strung-out dub rhythms, the Durutti Column-styled guitar lines, the world-influenced percussion and, most importantly, the layer upon layer of rich, rich headphone-catering textures. Nice.

However, at this point, we’ve only heard word of a confirmed Scandinavian release, with no mention of North America. With any luck though, we Canadians won’t have to wait a whole year or two to get our paws on a physical release of the album like we did with West Coast.
