"This album isn't like anything you've heard before." -Stereogum
Amnon Freidlin — whose work has been described as "dizzyingly brilliant" (Rough Trade)— occupies an elastic, raw realm of production, composition, and visual design. Brooklyn-based, he goes stag as Honnda, works on video and audio in Mouthguard88, plays guitar in chamber-no wave ensemble Normal Love, and is a former member of psychedelic post-industrial unit Zs. Freidlin has premiered work at the Bang on a Can Marathon, performed at the Primavera Club Festival in Spain, and has received the ACF Subito and Meet the Composer Creative Connections grants. He has shared bills with Yaeji, Sightings, J-Cush (Future Brown), Oneida, Tim Berne’s Bloodcount, The Sun Ra Arkestra, UNIIQU3, Matmos, and Crash Course in Science. His release, Diamonds in the Microwave, featured contributions from Dai Burger and video artist Will Rahilly, on Orange Milk (US)/Attracted Vinyl (UK). In November 2016, he scored artist Nick Cave's installation for Barneys New York. The current album Maraschino Mic Drop is out on Orange Milk, and features remixes by Carpainter, Foodman, and Noer the Boy. Bandcamp Daily called it "unfiltered happiness, dizzy and hysterical and irresistible."
