Summer Sale

In 2018, Belgium’s very own vintage synth duo METROLAND released their 4th conceptual album “Men In A Frame”. On this album they further expanded their artistic horizon by (quite literally) throwing photography into the concept.

Besides the highly praised “Men In A Frame” main album, METROLAND also surprised everyone by releasing 2 “non-album” singles with “Man In A Frame” and “Memorabilia” which were accompanied by more obscure electronic B-sides and remixes. But that’s definitely with the successful first exposition “Pictures To Listen To” held in Belgium that the band pushed their concept to its maximum limit allowing the audience to fully experience their “Men In A Frame” concept, allowing the exhibition visitors actually listening to the pictures and receiving afterwards the exclusive “Pictures To Listen To” compilation.

Animated by that unique and dynamic aim to constantly immerse their listeners in the symbiotic combination of electronics and deliberate, yet minimal design. METROLAND went the extra mile for the ultimate closure of their conceptual chapter dedicated to photography:  Passenger A and Passenger S presented a selection of kindred spirit musicians and bands with the challenge of, this time, putting the band in the frame, ending up in this unique remix album: "Framed”. A unique extension to the austere art that METROLAND holds so dear, each track on this luscious 12-track gatefold yellow colour vinyl album is the remixers’ personal contribution to really put the finishing touch on all of these METROLAND memorabilia. And the list of featured contributors simply speaks for itself!

This very limited double-LP release (300 units worldwide) is accompanied by the “Framed Anew“ carton sleeve CD offering a slightly different track list. (3 exclusive remixes on the yellow vinyl by DER DRITTE RAUM, DIE ROBO SAPIENS and FROHM; and 3 non-vinyl remixes on the CD). This beautiful collector item will be released at the occasion of the second “Pictures To Listen Too“ exposition at the Cultuur Centrum of Mechelen – Belgium from its vernissage on 26th January 2019 until 24th March 2019.
