June 6, 2024:


A new studio track release after a long time:


Our 24-minute improvisational piece 'Montebelluna Sunset', which was recorded seven years ago, finally found itself a home in the most recent volume of 'Intimnosti', a compilation series that features ambient, drone, experimental, and improvisational music that is meant to be listened privately, curated by Ivan Čkonjević, an improvisational guitar player based in Novi Sad, Serbia.


Montebelluna Sunset was an experiment in creating a very slow and calm doom jazz piece that was based on a melodic scale inspired by the Tempang Sunda music of the island of Java. It was recorded at Outside Inside Studio in 2017 by Matt Bordin during the same session where our album 'Psychedelia in Times of Turbulence' was created. It was tentatively meant to be a part of that album, but was obviously too long for the vinyl. For long years we didn't know where to release it until we were invited to contribute to Intimnosti.


There are numerous other tracks from the Montebelluna session that remain unreleased, which were recorded for a different album but at the end didn't make a coherent whole. They will surface in the coming months or yea

The year 2019 is the 20th anniversary of Hayvanlar Alemi. We found this a good opportunity to dive into our vault and release the fifth, sixth and seventh volumes of Hayvanthropological Field Recordings Series. The fifth, titled "Leftovers of Champions", will be out in a week or so on Inverted Spectrum Records. It contains a variety of unreleased studio material, including discarded compositions, alternate versions, and improvisations. This will be followed by the lo-fi recording of an entire concert from 2009, to be released in mid-November. The seventh volume will be a single, coming out before the new year, containing a very odd item from the H.A. vault, the release of which kept getting postponed for eleven years. It's a semi-electronic home recording with vocals. In the next few months we will also be posting various memorabilia from the H.A. history, on Facebook and on our Instagram page opened just today.



Our proper new album, by the way, is coming out on Subsound Records in spring 2020.
