Breakup-Party – Ghosts

[djummi.008]

Breakup-Party

“Ghosts”

I like the “Pop” this way: When in fact this music is banging in the true sense of the word. Catchy and radical! And together with the fellows Indie and Noise “Ghosts” ranges from doubting fragile to resolute explosive: passionately, unsparingly and glamorously!

notforme! – Small Town Mysteries

[SCL194]

notforme!

“Small Town Mysteries”

“Small Town Mysteries” is a tough one. Conceived during a five hour long spontaneous jam session with a let-it-all-out approach it both harkens back to the artists’ punk-rock upbringing and follows the course set by the first album. The voice is back and the crumpled paper poetry is back but this time with a bunch of fellow Karelian musicians to bounce off of. The result – four songs, oscillating from a gentle whisper to a desperate outcry, disjointed, reflection-fueled but unmistakably notforme!

Specially to the album was written a short story about the adventures on the White Sea

Llankru – Llankru

[djummi.007]

Llankru

“Llankru”

The magic of the basics

A music: very simple, as present and obvious as the happening round us. Its sounds: Elements in space, which fly apart in uniform motion, without resistance and get together again.

Llankrú masters the vanishing till the dispersal. Just as its opposite: The bang, with which all wants to expand into space from the center with force. In doing so time is relative. And therefore their im- and explosions happen in seemingly endless calm.

The instruments sound like they sound. A guitar, a second, guitar, a bass and a drum set. The musicians have freed sound and arrangement from all the superfluity and potential masquerade. But intuitively, not wilfully. The single sin is the glowing overdrive sometimes. But to this one the blessing was given already.

With all this „Sturz durch Raum und Zeit Richtung Unendlichkeit“ (C. Karges) Llankrú’s songs relate wonderfully. They could be the six episodes of a film, which may work stand-alone, but forge a bridge of a whole narration together.

The narrative power rises with the reduction. That’s the magic of the basics. Everything runs to a point, slowly the sum of the parts emerges and condenses more and more. And than suddenly: Nothing.

Luca Calcagno

“La Pioggia Rinfresca L’Estate “

Luca Calcagno è un musicista di Cogoleto, estrema provincia dell’Impero, cresciuto a pane, musica e Genoa. Per lo più autodidatta, vive di musica, nel senso che lavora in un negozio di strumenti musicali. E’ una persona come tutti noi, sicuramente con un talento al di sopra della media, e ve ne accorgerete ascoltando queste canzoni che fanno parte del singolo. Indie Pop anni novanta ma anche tanto altro, attraverso la tradizione specialmente britannica, ma con una forte melodia italiana. Ci sono molte cose in queste due canzoni, a quelli di voi un po’ più vecchi ricorderanno certamente delle cose italiane anni novanta, ed è da lì che vengono. Luca scrive e suona con cura, e tutto ciò lo si può sentire nella sua musica. Pubblicare questo singolo è per noi un onore.
Se lo incontrate non fategli mai la domanda su chi preferisce fra Beatles e Rolling Stone. La risposta è ovvia.

Luca Calcagno is a musician in Cogoleto, the province of the Empire, who grew up in bread, music and Genoa. Mostly self-taught, he lives in music, in the sense that he works in a musical instrument store. He is a person like us all, surely with a talent above the average, and you will hear them listening to these songs that are part of the singles. Indie Pop nineties but also much more, through the tradition especially British, but with a strong Italian melody. There are many things in these two songs, those of you a little older will certainly remember the Italian things in the nineties, and it’s where they come from. Luca writes and plays with care, and all this can be heard in his music. Publish this single is for us an honor.
If you meet him do not ever give him a question about who you prefer between Beatles and Rolling Stone. The answer is obvious.

Thus escaping forward, handbrake released and handluggage only: A bunch of broke, a fistfull of wire brush chords, a cup of dreamy speckles, the bass unleashed during walking, the drums dashed downstairs with rumble, outside in front of the door after all everything spontaneously and happily exaled with a deep sigh.

Pk jazz Collective – Safe From Harm

[Netlabel Day 2017]

Pk jazz Collective

“Safe From Harm”

О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня “What If?” в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.

Drunkeninstrumentcorporation

“Always The Same 10 Fucking Songs”

Drunkeninstrumentcorporation nasce in quel di Saluzzo nel 1998, nella profonda provincia cuneese, per dare un senso alla noia, primo motore della vita provinciale. E per scappate dalla noia Marco Abba aka Drunkeninstrumentcorporation si inventa svariati mondi, e queste sono solo dieci splendide fotografie che ci regala attraverso tanti generi, dal powerpop, al pop più classico, dal college rock al lo fi, ma è davvero limitativo parlare di generi, perché qui c’è la gioia di fare musica e la freschezza che avete sentito in alcuni dischi e che non avete più ritrovato. Vero capolavoro di provincia.

Drunkeninstrumentcorporation was born in Saluzzo in 1998, in the deep Cuneo province, to make sense of boredom, the first engine of provincial life. And to run away from boredom, Marco Abba aka Drunkeninstrumentcorporation invented several worlds, and these are just ten beautiful photos that give us through so many genres, from powerpop to the more classic pop, from rock college to lo fi, but it’s really limiting to talk about genres, because here is the joy of making music and the freshness you’ve heard in some disks and you have not found it again.

“Cinealarm”

Cinealarm – is like you’re sitting at work and suddenly the sirens begin to roar everywhere and on the radio, oldfashion soviet-radio style voice is heard: “Attention! Attention! Cinealarm!”. Then people start panic, although they do not know what to do and it’s unclear where the movie approaches to them. It is not an expensive Hollywood movie. It’s not even the cheap horror of the 80’s. It’s more like some unpopular surrealistic films of not very well-known directors or a collection of short films by these directors.

Bralitz

“Bralitz”

“Bralitz is a one-man-band who plays guitar, drums and percussion, piano, bass, harmonica, ukulele and sings songs he writes himself. He randomly chose the name Bralitz (a small town in North Eastern Germany) for no real reason other than its simplicity and the fact he often goes there to participate in a music festival organized by his friends. Bralitz draws inspiration from classics of various genres, i.e. rock ’n roll, folk, bossa nova, chanson, and manouche, to name a few. Using multi-track recording, he performs all the parts on most of his songs and sings most of the harmonies to his own lead vocals.”

So that’s the official bio. I’ll only add that this little collection of songs packs a melodic punch with thematic ties running throughout. You’ll likely find yourself putting the album on repeat for a while.

A very special thanks to Bralitz for the terrific EP! Welcome to the blocSonic fam!

Ffiper

“VESNA”

В основу альбома легла обыденность “Slow Things”. Меняется мир, добро побеждает зло, а музыка тем временем сотрясает душу.

Проект Ffiper (Файпер) был создан в мае 2015-го. Главной идеей первого альбома послужил внутренний переворот мира, переживания и любовь. Музыка писалась исключительно на iPod touch, а вокал на стандартном микрофоне от наушников. Так вышел в свет “Slow Things”. Через полгода началась работа над “Lit vecher”. Это был порыв поэзии, игра слов и грусть, воссоздаваемая авторами. Заключительной главой стала “VESNA”. Все тот же взрыв, что был в первом альбоме, но только в новом переплете. Атом тепла, внутреннего света и любви.
Все, что дальше – исключительно прекрасное. Все, что старое – частица истории.

Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures – Songs From The Surveillance Age

[BSOG0061]

Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures

“Songs From The Surveillance Age”

It’s been almost three years since we released the Xtended Edition of the excellent Mr. Bitterness album “The Good Fight” and here at blocSonic, expectations were running high for a new album that’s been in the works for quite a while. Well, with the release of “Songs From The Surveillance Age”, expectations have more than been met. This is unequivocally the best MB work yet. When you first approach it and see the six track count, you’re misguided into thinking that it’ll be a quick listen. Then you listen… and over forty-seven minutes later, you’re left stunned. Randal Helm aka MB couldn’t have been more relevant with the times we live in if he tried. I don’t want to give you any spoilers, but let’s just say that Inauguration Day felt like the most appropriate release date.

At blocSonic we’re working hard to build a platform to help our roster of artists increase their exposure to listeners who truly care about music. In that spirit, late 2017 will see us do more to get our music releases out to even more listeners. However, I can’t help but feel bad that important albums like this won’t be heard by a much wider audience. It’s all at once, well-written, catchy as hell and has something to say of substance. The simple matter is that it should be heard and blocSonic is very proud to release it. So, please, listen and enjoy. Don’t forget to share it with friends and family.

Huge thanks goes out to Randal Helm aka Mr. Bitterness And The Guilty Pleasures for entrusting the release of the important new album with blocSonic!

I wish the recent US Presidential election had gone a way that would have taken us a step toward making the themes in this incredible album a bit less relevant, however, unfortunately, this album became all the more relevant with the election of Trump. No more Balance of Power… Dark Days, indeed.

[SCL188]

Fodiator

“No Reason”

“High up in the attic in the middle of the night… a faint light”

Van Ooij (1970) grew up in the south of the Netherlands and was brought up around music. His father was a local folk singer and Joris had the privilege to try out all old and strange instruments his father made and gathered over the years. Van Ooij followed violin lessons and played a lot on the harmonium. From a young age he started to write his first songs, formed a group with his schoolmates and at the age of 13 they act on national Dutch TV. He bought his first synthesizer at his 15th birthday ( Korg ms10) and that seemed to be the start of experimenting and playing a lot with more ectronic sounds & instruments.
He started to write for theatre and in 1996 he co-wrote the soundtrack and leader for a 26 episodes Dutch tv series named “West-Zijde Posse”
With the urge to create and as a kind of escapism he founded Fodiator (after a genius of the flying fish family) in 2010. A melancholic blend of indie, pop, rock, folk and more….call it “commuter-pop”. His sound, made with all kinds of instruments in combination with his “falsetto” voice has a strong weakness… he often jokes.

Press & Support:
– 22 tracks Brussels:
“The things we learn while selecting these 22tracks! Apparently, a ‘Fodiator’ is a genius of the flying fish family. Next to that, it’s also a project started by songwriter Joris van Ooij in his attic. He’s an self-taught musician who creates his songs alone and then performs them with his Dutch – Belgian band. Van Ooij likes to create an atmospheric and melancholic blend of indie, pop & folk, that reminds us of what makes acts like Efterklang, Menomena and Guillemots so great. Great stuff for the winter, that is coming’’.

– Radio1 Belgium:
“Sometimes it is allowed to play plain pop music, so with this song by Fodiator. A rich layered sound and great story about the longing for the first sunny day of the season, told in just 2.24 minutes.”

– 3voor12 :
“Joris van Ooij, musician behind Fodiator is offering his unpolished music, made on his attic, on the internet….We heard four quiet promising tracks that we hope will appear to hear on EP soon.”

– Elite Muzik:
“I found a new record from Fodiator, an upcoming indie band out of Holland. The record is titled “No Reason”, and sound pretty dam good, give it a listen…”

Mastermind SX – Keep on moving

[DPH025]

Mastermind SX

“Keep on moving”

Mastermind XS is a dub-project from Saarbrucken/Germany, created by Daniel Stephan (guitar, bass, keyboard, programming, sitar) and Heiko Petry (vocals, lyrics, melodica, keyboard). Their music is based on a solid dub foundation: heavy basslines with conscious lyrics and deeply rooted dub & reggae with an interesting twist, integrating many influences such as electro, ethnic music, drum/n/bass and even indie or punk. Their sound unites different styles, which hardly fits into one single genre and are always exploring new musical spaces, combining their Ableton skills and live instruments, forming a unique ear-candy-mixture of grooves.

They have been busy releasing their music since October 2010 on diverse netlabels. Their first EP “One Dub Many Roots“, was released on the French netlabel LCL, while in 2011 their first long-player ”Reset all systems“ was released on Angel Dust Records. Their next album “Freedom of choice” was released in august 2014 again on LCL.

Dubophonic is proud to host their new album “Keep on moving”. It’s a compilation of 12 songs representing their unique and unconventional blend of dub & reggae. Modern and roots-elements are combined with drum/n/bass, electro, dubstep, indie rock heavy guitars, conscious lyrics and of course deep basses and delays.

Mastered by the pioneering artist, producer and peace activist Celt Islam, their new release (and their first on our netlabel) is a proof of the duo’s strength and innovation: writing reggae and dub oriented music with socially conscious lyrics and musically exploring different ideas, oscillating between danceable and meditative, powerful and calm, groovy and heavy, on their quest to define the far distanced borders of dub music.

Solaris

“Summer Edits”

Solaris was formed by Mark Sanderson, Richard Sanderson and Mark Spybey as young krautrock fans in Teesside in 1974, when they were aged 12 and 13. As the members grew up through post-punk, electronic music and free improv they have remained friends and still occasionally record together. These sessions were produced by Mark Spybey in Northumberland in 2010 and 2012 during the Summer holidays, and although the musicians have matured in the intervening decades, the influences of those original favourites (particularly the improvisational alchemy of Can and the cut-ups and aggression of Faust) are still audible.

Linear Obsessional is delighted to present their debut album- some 42 years after forming!

Cairo Braga

“Brother, Where Are You?”

“I’ve been listening to this song for a long time, thanks to a compilation my mom owns in CD, and it has always fascinated me for expressing so well feelings of isolation, longing and bewilderment, although with some kind of hope. Whenever I find myself surrounded by those feelings, it always comes to my mind. This time it came to my voice, by choice and by necessity.” Cairo Braga, musician

“The city is an entanglement of grayscale. The colourful boy is no more than a dimmed shadow blending to the bleakness of the concrete and of the hearts he finds. Solitude is palpable, even though there are signs of life amidst the neon light billboards. Where could be all those who promised love, hope, company? Nobody told him how hard it was to grow living in a brotherhood that exists in name only.” Marco Magoga, illustrator

While doing so, when I do find gems, it immediately changes my mood and makes the task of finding more great music, that much easier. Once I’ve got about 30 or so gems, I know that I’ve got some great music for the next volume, but what’s still unclear is which songs will ultimately make the cut, how well they’ll flow together and which ones I’ll have to remove because I can’t reach the artist or label. Eventually, though, I arrive at the final sequence that I can throw into my music player and listen to while preparing the compilation for release.

This time around, the final compilation is just so very, very good. Don’t get me wrong, each one is great, but there’s something about this collection of songs that’s unique. Perhaps it’s the way they flow together, or maybe certain songs work together so well that it makes the whole that much better. Whatever the case may be, I think netBloc Vol. 51: Embark! is likely to eventually be considered among your favorites… at least I hope so!

For this volume, we’ve got Electronic, Hip-Hop, House, Indie, Jazz, Post-Punk, Post-Rock & Soul from all over the world for you to enjoy and listen to. So download your copy… put your player on loop and spin it all day while you work!

Cairo Braga – Sadness is a Blessing

[EE007]

Cairo Braga

“Sadness is a Blessing”

I turned 25 on 30/09/2015 while curing myself from a strong bacterial pharyngitis. the day before I was supposed to show up for my first vocal audition, to become a member of the Coral Livre da Cidade de São Paulo (São Paulo City Free Choir). the pharyngitis kept me from going. it was a bitter and sad birthday. “Sadness is a Blessing” was the song I chose to sing at my audition that never was. all vocals here were recorded in one take, just like an audition. all feelings here are being healed, just like the pharyngitis.

Daily Khaos delivery – Lose Your Ways

Daily Khaos delivery

“Lose Your Ways”

Just over a year ago we released Daily Khaos delivery’s debut EP Plastic Houses, a terrific EP but with hindsight, only the beginning. With Lose Your Ways, they’re starting to hit their stride and seem to be developing into something quite special. Packed with instantly addictive songs such as “Cosmic yell”, “Goliath”, “Electrical love machine”, “Until the end of the world” and many more… it’s very likely that the new album is going to attract some new DKd fans! Will you count yourself among them? Check out the album and find out.

Thanks to DKd for delivering such an incredible album!

“Бивис и Баттхед, Батхёрт и Брокенхарт”

«Этот альбом должен был выйти еще в 2013 году, но различные преграды никак не давали нам его закончить. Так успело выйти три альбома (ComingOut! (2013), Икра из молодых (2014) и 69 (2015) и только сейчас в 2016-м году мы смогли завершить эту работу. Поэтому качество текстов и игры на инструментах характерные для того времени. »
