Fruits de Mer Records presents 'A Phase We're Going Through'
Coloured 12" vinyl album - ON SALE NOW! JUST $25
including postage anywhere in the known universe!

Fruits de Mer Records goes deep in time to prise from their shells 11 pearls from our chosen era of the late 60s and early 70s, puts them in the hands of an equally odd number of bands, who treat them with love, affection and all manner of weird studio things to create:


an album of songs which were drenched in phasing at the time, or have been now, or should and could have been, in our opinion.
Orchestral pop, freakbeat, pure psychedelia, acid-rock and more get the Fruits de Mer treatment and come out sounding all groovy-like.
It's our first album and, of course, it's only available on coloured vinyl - and it's limited to 500 copies in a psyched out sleeve - AND we've already sold over 450!

....Phasing...or flanging - wikipedia definitions of flanging and phasing - often confused with each other ...

flanging - uses short variable delays to cause a changing comb filter effect. First notable uses were in "Itchycoo Park" by Small Faces, and "Sky Pilot" by The Animals. It creates a "sweeping" effect that is similar to the sound of a plane coming in for a landing or the swirling sound of water going down a drain. The flanger was a studio effect at first created by slowing one of the tape flanges in a reel-to-reel tape in regular time.

Phase shifting (or phasing) Modulates the phase of the signal. Popular during the 1970s; one example includes keyboard part of Paul Simon's "Slip-Slidin' Away". High phasing speeds produce an "underwater" effect, as used by Jimi Hendrix in "1983... (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)".

Phasing (or flanging)in the hands of drugs-fuelled bands and their studio engineers in the 60's...definition: wonderful, musical, hazy mayhem
