The 2017 edition of Convenanza Festival featured Swedish band Fontän, who have released material on Höga Nord Rekords, and that set the ground for a collaboration between the record label and one of the most interesting festivals around. The joint forces has resulted in the compilation album “Convenanza 2018” containing the live acts of 2018.
The five artists are: electro oozing duo Woodleigh Research Facility, consisting of Andrew Weatherall and Nina Walsh, etno-minimalist Komodo Kollektif from Galsgow with, among others, Gordon Mackinnon who’s running the top quality label Invisible Inc. The more rock oriented side of “Convenanza 2018” contains Berlin based Die Wilde Jagt, whose sound can be defined as some sort of post punk where strong chorus drenched basslines float upon a smooth electronic soundscape with both live drums and drum machines as the back bone to the beat. Wild Woman And The Savages could best be described as the result of an orgy between PIL and The Birthday Party! The Limiñanas, with special guest Anton Newcombe, contribute to the collection a garage rock track suited for long hot drives through the dessert.
Weatherall’s unfailing “fingerspitzengefühle” in picking artists for the festival gets repeated yet again and if you for some unexplainable reason fail to make it to Convenanza Festival, the magic from the old castle still can reach your senses with the help from this compilation!
