Plankton Plankton is an instrumental duo and released their first vinyl record in 2001. They like technology, eyeglasses, mythology and synthesizers but still make very pretty music with lots of pop. Plankton are always doing recordings, remixes or atleast planning to do them. They like to do stuff on slow days while drinking coffee. In 2009 they made their magnus opus "15 min" and has since then been on an extended coffee break.

Releases by Plankton:


New cassette and digital release from Lo. It goes into darker and more abstract territory than previous Lo releases, it has some dub element, strange rhythm, weird Lo-fi aesthetic and lots of static.

Tunic - Sandviken LP finally out on vinyl!!!

Tunic - Sandviken LP is finally out on vinyl. It is Tunic or StÄlverks first full-length release to hit vinyl and we are very very proud of it. After remixing, re-mastering and finally that extra vinyl touch, it is a completely flawless record, concerning everything from songwriting to cover art and production. If you ever liked good beats or big wall of sound-production, this is a record for you. Sandviken LP, much like many debut albums, is a record that sums up everything important about the people who made it and the place it was made in, in a handful of pop songs. Amazingly consistent and long-lived, this is a record we have lived with for three years now, and it is still our favourite thing we ever released.
