Piiptsjilling's new album 'Fiif' is out. It's the quartet's fifth album and it's released on Peter Foolen Editions. Fiif doesn’t so much mark a new chapter for the band, but rather an organic progression of Piiptsjilling's sound. There’s a rougher edge to it then on the previous album ‘Moarntiids’. Guitars and Mariska Baars her vocals are more prominent. Listen for instance to the tracks 'Delstrutsen' and 'Fiskersbloed'.
The album was mastered by Lawrence English and is released on cd and as download. The CD comes in a vinyl transparent sleeve containing a folded poster with an image of a painting by Mariska Baars and the lyrics in Frisian and English. 'Fiif' can be ordered on the bandcamp page of Peter Foolen Editions.
