Fantasy League – Europe tour


Hello! My new album Fantasy League has been out for just over a month now (released 18 March), so I thought I’d share some press and tour dates. Thanks for all the support!


Andrew Tuttle, based in Brisbane, Australia; creates sounds that explore the relationship between electronics and acoustics. Tuttle’s synthesis of electronic/acoustic instrumentation and genre, and improvisation/composition is performed on instrumentation including computer, banjo, synthesiser and acoustic guitar.

Following the release of his second album Fantasy League on Room40‘s Someone Good imprint on 18 March and prior to a residency at Ems Stockholm in May 2016, Tuttle will be performing select dates in Europe in April-May 2016.

* AllMusic – 9/10: “His tones are sharp but rarely abrasive, and he applies a stunning array of effects and filters while retaining the music’s earthly, human qualities.”
* Flush The Fashion – 8/10 “Andrew’s album is one of these creative passports that will take you to new places that you never knew existed. That’s not a bad start to the week, or the rest of your life.”
* ATTN: “15 seconds into Fantasy League – the latest album by Australian composer Andrew Tuttle – a banjo springs into the frame, dancing jubilantly atop a slow-swelling drone, swaying over the synthesiser haze like plant life indulging a summer breeze.”
* Cyclic Defrost: “It is as close to an electronic ideal as you can one might expect.”
* Boomkat: “Curious mixture of dusty country banjo twang, drone and creamy kosmische with a sun-baked antipodean sensibility.”
* Sonic Masala: “Fantasy League aims to capture the listener in a phantasmagoria that calms and enraptures, beguiles and bewitches.”
* Sound Doctrine: “Whorls of guitar are overcome by droning rhythms, to be overtaken by thundering organs or fluttering electronic blips.”
* Textura: “that extra dimension also helps give Fantasy League an individuating character that sets it apart from recordings whose soundworld is exclusively synthesizer-rooted”
* 4ZZZ: “The timbres and melodies are constantly changing and shifting in this bluegrasstronic collage”
* ToneDeaf/AMRAP: “Fantasy League is the new album from Brisbane-based producer Andrew Tuttle and it’s his best realisation yet for his intoxicating blend of modular synth melodies, folk guitar and banjo.”
* The Formant: “Tuttle’s synthetic folk sees a lazy-summer night’s banjo bounce over the subtly orchestrated drones and feedback” (
* Ambient Blog: “The weird contradiction between (broken) retro technique in a future society in Gilliam’s Brazil is, in a way, also reflected in (Andrew) Tuttle‘s blend of acoustic and electronic instruments”
* Tinnitus Not Tinea: “Andrew Tuttle’s “Registration” is a pleasingly subtle ambient landscape spearheading by a similarly pleasing finger-plucked banjo line”
* Other language reviews – Rockerilla (Italy), Music Won’t Save You (Italy), Carnage (Italy), Amusio (Germany), Nowa Muzyka (Poland)
* A-Musik CD recommendation, April 2016.
* Feature album on 2SER, RTR, PBS radio; rotation on triple j unearthed.
* Airplay in Australia, USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Czechia, Luxembourg.

2015 wrap up


In the early days of 2016, thought I’d wrap up my 2015 on here! A really enjoyable and satisfying year.

Probably the biggest highlight for me was releasing my debut solo album Slowcation, on Room40‘s A Guide To Saints imprint. Limited physical copies still remaining at the Room40 store. You can also stream it below.

Thanks again to Lawrence English for releasing it, M.C Schmidt (Matmos) and Christopher Fleeger for contributing to it, to everyone who wrote about it or played it; and to everyone who listened!

Thoroughly enjoyed performing during 2015, with Slowcation launches in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Gold Coast; as well as other Brisbane performances throughout 2015. Live collaborations with Early Universe, Pale Earth and Zinia Chan were all wonderful as well!

Another personal highlight was the release of The Cerebral City, a short film I scored for fantastic American director John Moody. The film received several awards in the USA, an honour to be part of it!

2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year, with the release of my second album (more info soon…) in March and a Europe tour/two week residency at ElektronMusikStudio (EMS) in Stockholm, Sweden in April/May.

New music – Mixtape I

Here’s some reissued music! Available as download and limited edition CDR…

Mixtape 1 brings together three archival collage style pieces by Brisbane, Australia based musician Andrew Tuttle into the physical realm for the first time.

Released in an extremely limited, hand assembled run of 50 CDs as well as a ‘pay what you like’ digital edition, throughout its three tracks ‘Mixtape 1’ explores themes of summer pleasantries, domestic bliss, intense subtropical weather, radical agitation, spatial tension and overall redemption.

BickLack is a heavily edited version of an hour long ‘mixtape’ piece created for Zed Digital’s (4ZZZ FM) ‘Back Lick’ program in March 2013. Recorded in Brisbane; January-March 2013 (with a guitar excerpt recorded at Ryman Auditorium song booth studio, Nashville, TN; September 2012).

4064, Rezoned is based on a commission by Darwin based creative producer Britt Guy; and performed live over two nights at Brisbane’s Metro Arts in December 2013. This version of 4064, Rezoned was recorded in Brisbane, February 2014 for the Ears Have Ears program on Sydney, Australia’s FBi radio.

…from soapbox to Senate is a ‘single’ created from live performances, edited improvisations and on-site field recordings of a work by the same name at Boggo Road Gaol in November 2014. …from soapbox to Senate was the result of an invitation by OtherFilm to create a work to present at their Institutional Capture festival.

extended summer shows!


Playing some very exciting shows between now and the end of the year in Brisbane. If you’re around, come along? Really excited to see both Hauschka and Julia Holter!

Also looks like a show supporting Sparkspitter from Adelaide and a couple of other shows, details for all of those when confirmed here.
