On December 13th 2008 the Kleefstra Bros shared the stage with Sytze Pruiksma for the first time with a curious impro (video). A year later the three stepped into the Landscape Studio to make one afternoon of music, which lead to Deislieper, the first album by Kleefstra|Pruiksma|Kleefstra.

The album contains five pieces, all uncut impro's, in which percussion, bird whistles, bells, cymbals, experimental as well as melodic guitar and spoken word float together, whirling around eich other, taking its time. Deislieper is published by Hibernate Recordings. The art work is done by Ian Hazeldine, based on the brilliant high key pics by Ruurd-Jelle van der Leij. The album off course contains a booklet with the spoken words in Frisian, plus translations. In the release section you can see where it is available. Of which getting it through the [r] is a very good option! And in the listening section you can find three tracks (scroll down a bit). This is what Fluid Radio said about it.

Meanwhile the trio is involved in more recordings, that will probably lead to some exciting other releases... More about that someday. First Deislieper. Play it loud!
