Nothing on this planet has any meaning by itself. All meaning comes from people, animals, things and phenomenons being connected one way or another, through heritage, through genetics, through animosity, through destiny, through osmosis and what have you. Sports and Finance is an album about connections. It connects eight songs dealing with the matter. Surely there are connections between Sports and Finance and pop music or whatever it is that normal folks listen to. These connections may not be as obvious as the connections between Sports and Finance and things like noise rock, avant-garde, electro, math, truth or dare, but then again, what one will find depends on what one is looking for. Sports and Finance might be a radical body of work and a menace for every dancefloor but Spoelstra firmly believes there is no reason to let any of the abrasive riffs, loose strings, stumbling patterns, rural outbursts and tearjerk twists stand in the way of a good song unless it is funny.

Sports and Finance is the fourth release by Spoelstra, a musician from The Hague, The Netherlands. He debuted with I Got Issues the Shape of Italy (10” lathe cut, 2009), a concept ep about countries and borders. Musically he was looking for the borders of country music. The follow-up The Almighty Internet (cd, 2010) was more electro. Thematically it questioned the importance of information technology in modern society. Pallets (tape + book, 2011) was an impressive collection of songs, art, cartoons, fashion, cliff hangers, flashbacks and what not provided an in-depth look on pallets, storage and transportation issues.
