NZ's Kraus & Duckling Monster are The Maltese Falcons

Originally released in a 20 edition lathe cut by Root Don Lonie For Cash, the self-titled debut LP by The Maltese Falcons is now available for free download from the Free Music Archive.

The Maltese Falcons is a duo featuring Duckling Monster (of Dunedin's retro-futurists The Futurians) on keyboards/vox. The multi-instrumentalist Kraus rounds out the duo on bass, drums, guitar and synth.

Kraus hails from Auckland NZ and has been churning out top-notch experimental sounds since 2001. After founding The Futurians, he has gone on to form Olympus (with Stefan Neville of Pumice), Pouffe with vocalist Matt Plunkett, and many other projects while recording solo under the name Kraus. Much of his output is available at and here on the FMA.

Two selections from Kraus' acclaimed Faster Than the Speed of Time are below. The 2011 LP can be found stateside via Soft Abuse and in Europe via France's Bimbo Tower and Metamkine.

Kraus was previously featured by LizB: "Overmodulated in New Zealand" [Sept 2009]
