Piiptsjilling – Fiif / album release by Peter Foolen Editions










Piiptsjilling – Fiif

Fiif’ is the new and fifth album by Piiptsjilling, to be released on June 23rd by Peter Foolen Editions.

Piiptsjilling consists of Jan & Romke Kleefstra (Alvaret Ensemble, Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra, etc.), Mariska Baars (soccer Commitee) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek). They combine poetry with vocals, guitars and electronics. Whether in the studio or live, they always improvise. Without much discussion, they just start, and the music magically pours out, sometimes ethereally beautiful and at other times abstract and noisy.
Jan Kleefstra’s poems are in Frisian, a language most listeners won’t literally understand, but can just as well be experienced on a musical level, adding a sense of mysterious melancholy to the music.

‘Fiif’ doesn’t so much mark a new chapter for the band, but rather an organic progression of their sound. There’s a rougher edge to it then on previous albums like Wurdskrieme (Experimedia, 2010) or Moarntiids (Midira, 2014), and Mariska’s vocals have gained an even more important role.

The album was recorded at Studio Landscape in Gau and mastered by Lawrence English at 158, Brisbane, Australia, and will be released on cd and as download.
The CD is released in an edition of 300 copies and 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 is available for pre-order for 8 euro at

  1. CLA Safflower Oil Review

    Creatine is a naturally formed amino acid that is found in the human body, especially around the skeletal muscle. The human body generates Creatine naturally partly from the diet we take and partly on its own. A healthy person has about 120g of Creatine, most of it being in the form of a compound called PCr. The body can store a maximum Creatine quantity of 0.3 g per one kilogram of body weight. The body produces about 2g of Creatine per day. The chief food sources of Creatine are fish and red meat. Half a pound of raw meat provides about 1g of Creatine for the body. Creatine that does not come from food is produced endogenously by the body from internal amino acids.
