about

Recorded between Vevey/Switzerland and Toiano/Italy from summer 2012 to summer 2013.
Recorded, mixed, mastered,played by Fred Merk, except lyrics and vocals on« Power of the hill » by Richard Birkin (aka Emphemetry), slide guitar on «Hold me» by Sacha Ruffieux, vocals, lyrics and contrabass on « Les Clochettes » by Rahel Steiner, drums on «Lumière Directe » by Théo Missillier .

Various old microphones, tape recorders, broken instruments, vintage synthesizers, tape delay and unconventional crappy materials were used in order to test them. As a result it gave this collection of songs.
Field recordings were done in the summer 2012 wandering through Vevey, Zermatt, Toiano, Gstadt.

Thank you Rahel, Sacha, Richard and Théo since you've captured the spirit of this record. Many thanks to Michael Frei, Rahel Steiner and Monica Gabriel for their advice.
A very special thank to Caroline Fayet, Louni, Ricardo Mariano and the sun from Toscana.

about

17f Vevey, Switzerland

17f is a quartet who plays Americana folk music. Led by a delicate instrumentation where power is not calculated in decibels. The band created a strong identity on stage, used to play in tight places, they took advantage of these places to build their sound.
Heavily influenced by Neil Young or Pink Floyd, 17f transports you into a cinematic world.
