“The Death and Life of Ruby Marquette“ is the upcoming double album by Phraseland.

In our “baby“-break (which we used to produce many up and coming world changers, influencers and all around ass kickers) we used the time to produce a concept album to make the time go by and we couldn't be more thrilled to finally show the world! Our musical baby will be released sometime in Spring 2020. 

Past Releases

"A Long Way from Home" is the second long player by Phraseland (Released 2014). 

Together with producer Philip Harrison we wanted to dive a bit deeper into our vision of “Psychedelic Americana“ songwriting and we believe we achieved just that! The album is out on vinyl and CD and can be listened to here in its entirety!

"Playground" is the first long player by Phraseland (Released 2012). 

Recorded in our own studio and mixed by Andreas Brüll we wanted to combine our 70s Pop influence with our fascination with improvisational bands such as Wilco, The Grateful Dead and Phish. We mostly stayed on the side of the songwriting and left the wilder parts for our life shows :-)

The album is out on CD and can be listened to here in its entirety!
