Tara King th. & Halasan Bazar: 8 (Ep, 2015)

“Said by Halasan Bazar & Tara King : “The lead single – “TK. 16 pt 1” have had a long journey, deemed unfit for the album itself, it was also worked up during the sessions for “8”, but appears only in the piano/drums-driven ballad “TK16pt2” on the record. Driven by an aggressive bass-riff & a dusty Farfisa drum machine it has a whole different feel to it than everything else on the record, and could not work in the cowboy sunset atmosphere of “8”. However, after the record was done and released, we kept coming back to this song, listening to different mixes & textures, and instrumental versions & disco remixes kept appearing, and it became a live favorite when the two bands toured france & scandinavia fall 2015. A year on it finally hits the streets, with two remixes to accompany it”

Halasan Bazar: How to be ever happy (Requiem por un Twister, Moon Glyph, Re-2014)

“The Halasan Bazar debut was finished, but still missing a title. Eckhoff described the post-recording time as one of existential struggle, prompted by a “naive vision of love being put to the test.” The ex- which is the “you” of most of his songs returned from India with a present for Eckhoff, a joke gift in the form of a
paperback titled How To Be Every Happy. “I immediately knew it to be the perfect title for these depressed and confused songs.”
How To Be Ever Happy was soon released on Steve Rosborough ́s Moon Glyph, on a small run cassette edition. Upon its original release Steve reflected on the records attraction: “the group builds dreamy, pastoral tunes sonically fitted between ’60s folk, AM pop & heaven-gazing psych. Armed with an abundance of instruments & sonics, the complex soundscapes of “How ToBeEverHappy” explore themes of alienation, love & the inner-battle. The slow, strumming genesis of “Figure It Out” matures into a blossoming of circular guitars & deep-seated hooks. On an album of never-ending gems, “Mountaintops” stands outwith its lush arrangements, sun-kissed guitars & infectious, buoyant harmonies. A brilliant new voice is here in Halasan Bazar & How To Be Ever Happy marks their great metamorphosis.”
And now, 2 years on, with the partnership of Requiem Pour Un Twister and Moon Glyph, Halsan Bazar’s How To Be Ever Happy has been remastered for vinyl pressing” (Press)
