Album Notes
With ten hours in studio and ten months of post processing, Television Pickup has created an album that sounds like a collection of postcards from a deserted tourist paradise, scanned and converted to electronic signals.

Kinescope Mountain is Television Pickup’s second album release. Here they continue their journey through a mixed bag of suggestive musical landscapes, from widescreen panoramas to clinical close-ups. Dramatic themes join forces with messy, abstract improvisations, creating a one-hour stream of flickering images: unclear, like dreams almost unrecognizable, but still impossible to forget.

Television Pickup had their first public appearance in spring 2004, and has since then been around Sweden and Denmark playing for dogs and grandmothers. Katrine Amsler’s music is characterized by simple but spellbinding melodies, rearranged and transformed by the band. And if everything else is beyond recognition, the moods and the typical Television Pickup sound is what glues it all together.

"… hell it’s an intriguing album: All spooky sounds, tape loops, atonal sax and clarinet, guitar noise [...] for an hour-long break from all the other crap you fill your ears with, this is a good, little record." - Jon A, Lowcut Magazine.

"They are moving surprisingly easy between introvert experiments and naive humoristic playfulness." - Christopher Thorén, Lira
