about

2012 – LP + insert + download cart + bonus tracks, Numbered limited edition (500 copies) – CD (cardboard gatefold cover) + insert
three:four records, tfr016

From the start, curiosity pushed Thierry Müller and Mushy to book a studio in Rome. Intrigued by the combination of their universe, they spent three days improvising with Luciano Lamanna.
With nine hours of recordings at his disposal, Thierry wrote the Far From Paradise story. Editing was a long and tedious process in order to keep the spontaneity of the sessions. A few re-recordings and instruments were added to the framework (drums, percussions, cello) to finalize the 12 tracks that made it onto Far From Paradise.

The spirit and colour that come out of it lead Thierry Müller to revive the Ruth concept. Dark and wistful atmospheres with a hint of eroticism melt with more electric and spontaneous moments. Even though some tracks could be considered as electropop, cold wave or synthetic krautrock, the consistency lies in the cold tension and minimalism present all through the record.
