Autistic Daughters - "Jealousy and Diamond"
Label: Kranky / Staubgold
Recorded at Amann studios in Vienna, Jealousy and Diamond is the debut by the trio Autistic Daughters. The band is made up of Dean Roberts (guitar, vocals, harmonium and harmonica), Martin Brandlmayr (drums, vibraphone and electronics) and Werner Dafeldecker (electric and contrabass). Basic tracks were recorded in Vienna in April 2003 by Roberts, Dafeldecker and Brandlmayr. Dean Roberts recorded additional voices, guitars and miscellaneous instruments with Valerio Tricoli (who was such a crucial part of the recording of Roberts' debut kranky album Be Mine Tonight ) in Bologna , Italy in the fall of 2003. The mastering of the album was finished in early summer 2004 by Patrick Pulsinger.
The members of the band all have extensive connections in the improvised, electronic and rock scenes. Having played as band together for quite some time, Autistic Daughters are more than a "project". The group plans on European touring in support of Jealousy and Diamond in late 2004 and early 2005. Staubgold is releasing the album on vinyl.
