Lorelei is the debut album from duo Feminine (Giampiero Riggio and Francesco Cipriano). A wave manifesto against the deeply rooted reverence for the logic of genres. “Lorelei” develops on two complementary levels: one archaic and passionate, troubled by the many contradictions of a land like Sicily and the other, accurate and bewitching, is a prelude to teutonic Stuttgard. A countless number of bytes which they shared and exchanged remotely. This work is romantic and brave at the same time, constantly immersed into a very deep atmosphere, never trite,
fooled by the certainty that there is no dream which cannot be described.
After many years in the making, and following an obscure lo-fi CDR release about ten years ago, this is Peter Holy’s first solo album, this time without materializing physically (the music, not Peter).
Peter plays piano and sings, accompanied by Tupolev bandmates Alexandr Vatagin (cello, recording, mixing, mastering) and David Schweighart (drums). The record consists of 9 pieces, 2 of which are re-recordings from songs from the old CDR, one is a reworking of a piece by Tupolev and one piece was also used in a song on Alexandr Vatagins album Serza. The remaining 5 pieces are completely new.
Safir Nòu (Antonio Firinu) is a composer, guitarist and accordionist.
The music collected in the album Groundless could be identified as “total music”, influenced by different styles and genres, from world music to post-rock to jazz. The sounds and the melodies bring the listener to an ethereal and hypnotic dimension, which is the “groundless” dimension indeed.
“notforme!” is the acoustic solo project from Pavel Mokhort, the singersongwriter of the Karelian punk band Six-Pack Sunday. Since 2009, he has traveled half of Russia with occasional forays abroad, playing small bars and cafes. “We Were Coalmine Canaries” is a collection of travel notes, postcards and photographs from his shoebox of memories. Keep it simple: a guitar, a shabby plaid shirt and a couple of friends.
«Эти песни записывались в 2014-2015 годах и были опубликованы в интернете тремя частями: сначала первые четыре песни (обложка с птицей), следующие три песни о кислом (и картинка с лимоном) и отдельно — последняя песня (с фотографией).»
From Jhansi, India, this fresh and gorgeous chillout-ambient-downtempo release is incredibly enjoyable and almost palpable. It brings to mind a perfect combination of the worlds of Ulrich Schnauss and The Album Leaf.
Nostress Netlabel proudly presents “Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1”, the new album by Massimo Ruberti, from Livorno (Italy). An artist who likes to call himself “trafficker of sounds and images” now considered one of the label’s flagship artists. The album will be released exclusively for the upcoming second edition of the Netlabel Day, a considerable important event organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. which will take place July 14 and involving Netlabels from around the world. Will take place at the endless web areas and there will be a collective exchange of unreleased and original music, that will bring enrichment in the archives of all those who participate in this beautiful and important initiative. Massimo Ruberti will bring high the banner of Nostress Netlabel with the publication of the first part of an EP extremely complex and sophisticated, that catapults the listener into distant and forgotten times. A work that requires careful listening and that will see the closure of a circle as soon as possible, through the publication of the second part. “Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1” it’s an album in warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored and never trodden by human. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ‘ last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound. Four songs that lead the listener to dive into the wonderful atmosphere created by Ruberti, starting from the cover depicting a Vedic text 5000 years ago to the intoxicating beauty of sound that will, without a doubt, to a new relistening of the album.
Segunda edición de este gran álbum, que va desde un folk lo-fi hasta una sicodelia melancólica y femenina, canciones llenas de imaginario visual, con un sonido bien particular y que personalmente sentimos como único. Lanzado originalmente hace un par de años atrás, re-emerge con un nuevo arte, y algunos temas extras grabados en el intertanto, como si con el tiempo se hubiese perfeccionado así mismo, volviéndose mucho más coherente con lo que propone sonoramente, disponible en descarga gratuita, pero también pronto en una edición limitada en formato físico.
Dublin based duo Jim Lawler and Ben Rawlins (aka Saso) return after a 5 year hiatus with the release on their 5th studio album titled Mysterium.
Where the duo’s previous albums centred around guitar and vocals, Mysterium is primarily a collection of piano based instrumentals occasionally lit by Lawler’s fragile vocals.
The band abandoned formal structure letting the music unfold naturally, using silence and room ambience as instruments in themselves.
Replacing guitars with the more pastoral sounds of an upright piano and acoustic organ, the album was recorded in one room and the duo invited musicians from diverse musical backgrounds to perform certain parts and improvise around sounds and melodies. The compositions are sprinkled with acoustic drums, double bass, woodwinds, brass and neo-classical vocals adding moments of colour and contrast to the otherwise minimalist sound.
1. In My Shelter (3:50)
2. Girl Of Fall (3:06)
3. Beautiful Day (3:47)
4. Apple Of Perfection (2:41)
5. Sign Of Love (3:28)
Total Time: 16:52

M-PeX revisits his debut album Phado, originally put out in 2007 by Thisco and Fonoteca Municipal de Lisboa, now remastered and available free for download at Enough Records. The album is dedicated to his grandfather, Luís Tomás Pinheiro, master of the portuguese guitar, who introduced M-PeX to the fado universe. In Phado, M-PeX assumes the portuguese guitar as a characteristic trait of his musical identity, mixing it with electronic music. Cover artwork by Marco Madruga.
“Krillin Split” is a valuable collaboration between two promising young Spanish musicians: Cuarto and Indiosingracia
Tradition, modernity and ingenious experiments gather in ten tracks melting folk, electronic, ambient and pleasant oddness.
“Krilin Split” is cozy, warm, friendly and candidly melancholy.
The first step towards something new.
Polish DEFIL vintage guitars in action! 22 tracks, almost 70 minutes of guitar-music. Every artist or band use some model/models of DEFIL instrument (the oldest one: 1962’Mandolin… up to 1991’Aster Lux).
“Things Left Unsaid” is not only the testimony of a precise moment, but rather the result of a long research, composition and improvisation done by the band: there’s a common area where musical elements from diametrically opposed musical worlds such as jazz and contemporary music, rock and blues coexist without forgetting the melodic vocation in each composition.
