It’s great to welcome back Tardiss to No-Source with their brand new album, “Thisistar.” This album picks up where “Blue” left off, further refining their sound into something that full bridges lo-fi indietronic and hi-fi IDM. The album kicks off with the over nine minute sprawling epic “Willbury Road.” Downtempo beats are the center stage for this album. Long rhythmic grooves intersect with short interludes before fading out in the last few minutes of the album with the majestic ambient piece “Goodnight Sunrise.”
“The album is a stellar work of excellence.” Floor Shime Zipper Boots
“A noteworthy launch that eludes all genre traps and clichés with ease.” ambientexotica.com
“Surak has managed to lace Space Invaders with such intricate music and emotion that it presents the listener with a beautiful dream-like sensation of falling into the unknown.” Sound and Motion Magazine
“And here goes something I wouldn’t miss at any cost. Easy listen, easy flaw, easy vibes, easily accessible. Everything about this project is great as it carries an extreme minimalist side with some exquisite drone elements backed up by spoken lyrics few places.” TheSirenSound.com
“Este proyecto es musica silenciosa que ingresa a tu cabeza como geringa de silencio ya explotado y sobre alusinas experiencias de placer en cada melodia ya puesta en acción.” Cielos Ciegos
“Nella musica di Surak si avverte uno scarto personale del tutto ineffabile, come a voler decifrare un codice che sfugge alle logiche – spesso binarie – della critica così come la si conosce.” Rockit.it
“Ciò che colpisce è la sua versatilità e capacità di miscelare e amalgamare in modo impeccabile più generi da trame ambient a struttura post-rock sino a intrecci psichedelici che attraversano liquide note di pianoforte, protagonista della maggior parte dei pezzi.” Son Of Marketing
“Space Invaders, il primo disco interamente autoprodotto: tredici tracce che vanno dall’ambient e space rock fino all’elettronica, e formano una deliziosa colonna sonora di sfavillante eterogeneità.” Troublezine.it
“Surak ha prodotto un disco, il primo, perfetto nelle sonorità, complesso e impegnativo per certi versi ma accessibile ed orecchiabile.” Priski.it
“Space Invaders è un lavoro coraggioso e potente, rarefatto e maturo; un risultato ottenuto da idee precise e non declinabili.” IndieRockNapoli
‘Space Invaders’ is the 13-track self-released debut album by Surak. It can be considered atmospheric, yet with a distinct rock vibe and minimalist piano shades. The result is an ambient/post-rock listening experience where the sound is transcendent: the tracks represent a dreamy blend of orchestral textured electronic music.
After more than half a year of silence we are back with a new release by one of our favorite artists, the Swedish indie outfit EMERALD PARK!
“Things EP” is a collection of great songs taken from the album Absolute Zero, b-sides and the upcoming Black Box EP.Enjoy / 23 Seconds Netlabel

Picking up right where the project last left its listeners, furniture music #2 is a high bitrate sequel to the lobit volume 1 released on the SPubsidiary SPTOtfSP (catalog number 011), consisting of all new material except for furniture music #14 – cheap soundtrack for daily accidents, which originally appeared on Hal McGee’s Cheap and Plastic compilation. isteronproject describes its sound as principally what it calls furniture music, “a low-budget parody of the commercial music, inspired by people as residents, devo and, of course, erik satie,” qualified with the further labels kraut punk and cheapadelic. The reference to the Residents feels particularly accurate, especially on the plodding, playful last piece; listeners familiar with the Residents’ Commercial Album will quickly find themselves anticipating the familiar refrain “I wish I was a picnic boy”. Much like the bands mentioned in the genre description, the structure and execution of the songs on furniture music #2 are simple, odd, and quite catchy, with the jovial quality of songs children sing to themselves. In fact, the melody to the song furniture music #13 – corna prendete aria, was first conceived between isteronproject’s Stefano Balice and his cousin when they were children. The instrumentation is also threadbare, consisting of two small Casio keyboards, a small circuit bent Yamaha keyboard, and two Korg pocket-sized ribbon synths. In its very essence, furniture music #2 exemplifies the lo-fi aesthetic, that stripped of complex songs and fancy recording setups, an artist’s true talent and ingenuity can shine through.
It gets even stranger when you realize that Joevs new EP Arc is not meant to be a sophisticated statement or a concept album. Instead, he simply wrote a letter. You know, like your parents did, to speak to someone dear and even more to themselves. The outcome is something heavy and haunting, carried by his Notwistesque voice and eventually broken by all sorts of distorted field recordings.
Background Radiation, is the electronic pop duo Ludo Maas & Tim Dwyer. Their sound sits somewhere nicely between Tunng and Apparat. They have been slowly amassing music for this full length album since 2008. “Uniform Static” is a collection new work that is their most engaging, polished yet. It is an extremely percussive album, sharing similarities with their “False Start ep”. Electronic drums pulse and click along all twelve tracks. A lot the the instruments found on their “Moot Point ep” also make an appearance on this album. Many of the songs lyrics delve into ramblings of space, dreams, and memories.
Rho return to No-Source Netlabel with their first batch of new material since 2010’s album, ‘Cedarleaf.’ ‘Brace For Gravity’ is a brilliant, concise, and calculated release. It showcases the two distinct sides of Rho. One side is their quiet, ambient, acoustic side. Guitars tremble slowly through seas of effects in many of the shorter songs on this album. The other half of Rho is the sprawling, progressive, beat oriented instrumentals. In these pieces, rhythms, synths, and guitar work to take on an almost kraut rock nature. The title ‘Brace For Gravity’ suggests an epic release and these longer tracks definitely deliver. Brace yourself for Rho.
In 2011, No-Source Netlabel kicked off a remix contest for Will Bang’s album Stay Gold. As you may remember, Stay Gold was created as a starting point for musical collaboration. Now that the initial contest is over, No-Source brings to you the remix EP “Stay Golden”. The EP contains five tracks, remixing four of the songs off Stay Gold. These five tracks come across less as remixes and more as a compilation of songs by different artists. Interestingly enough all five tracks share a similar indietronic bond with each other. Ilona from Switzerland adds kick drums, effects drenched vocals and a wave of synths. Harvey Kreepar takes his remix to post-progtronic territory with an immense build of layers. Ford Madox Ford, a mysterious project from the mind that brought you Full-Source, takes on three tracks with reverberated vocals and distorted, arpeggiating synths. Stay Golden is a great way to wrap up the 2012 release year for No-Source. Enjoy!
Electric Mirrors is an indietronic project from musicians Derek Rutter and Eddie Palmer. They collaborate entirely online, crafting electronic experiments. Once a structure forms, live instruments and vocals are added, steering their songs in a direction closer to the boundaries of pop music. There is a decidedly Americana element to their laid back vocals and dusty sounding lyrics. The vocals are paired next to instrumentation of the downtempo synthpop variety. The end result on “Unlimited Dream Company” sounds like The Flaming Lips remixed by Portishead. Electric Mirrors expertly molds electronic experimentation into layered hooks and song structure. “Unlimited Dream Company” is a great album that needs to be listened from start to finish. Electric Mirrors is definitely a band to watch in years to come.
Tending to Huey’s music comes up with ease but is, at the same time, very complex in its design. Thrilling songs right from the start into which you can dive deeply – a fabulous and bravely composed listening-adventure. Not just pure Pop!
The Apple Core EP is in the truest sense of the word the quintessence of the longplayer Poison Apple. It concentrates the album in form of 5 well picked songs.
Cocolixe brings us the new EP, “Doméstico.” After Cocolixe’s first EP “Futuro”, the Barcelona-based artist delivers us a more personal and song-oriented work. The longing for the past and puzzlement in front of the future coexist in these four warm electro-pop songs, leading us step by step from melancholy to enthusiasm. Referring to European 60’s and 70’s cinema and music, “Doméstico” invites us to enjoy cosmopolitanism quiet into our private space. “Le futur qui avance” starts off the EP with a trip-hop vibe, a slow beat, hushed vocals. and some nice guitar work. “Giving Myself To You” picks up the pace with a infectious electro beat topped off with a playful little lounge melody. The beat continues strong with the head nodding “Mai” and its guitar driven chorus. The final track, “Swing Low” was originally featured on No-Source’s 50th release compilation, “Another Day, Another Way.”
“All It Takes” is the third album by Multi-Panel, the solo project of Ludo Maas. Native to the Netherlands, Ludo has been perfecting his style of loop based electronic music pared with vocals and acoustic guitar. On “All It Takes”, Maas blends Lo-fi IDM with Americana, creating a decidedly cinematic experience. Each track blends to the next like scenes in a movie. Nostalgic guitar rifts become the canvas for the synthetic flourishes and expressive synth work. Drum beats and vocals, come and go, on a tidal schedule. The end result is a rich and complex suite of songs that demands to be listened to from start to finish, like a good film. The album was inspired by Maas’ new found love for the cinema, and accompanying soundtracks. Notable inspirations include Tangerine Dream’s Risky Business, Howard Shore’s After Hours, Jon Brion’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Patrick Leonard’s At Close Range, Ennio Morricone’s Days of Heaven, and Jon Hopkins’ Monsters. Maas’ musical influences include Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Múm, Colleen, Fennesz, Boards of Canada, Neil Young, Four Tet, and Postal Service.

The grandfathers of ’23 Seconds Netlabel’ are back with a long-awaited and absolutely astounding EP. “A Thousand Ways EP” is our eight release by the mighty Azoora from London.
For years the band has been creating music on its own terms, which has resulted in a unique and very personal sound, often combining a lot of different genres like indie, post-rock, singer songwriter, trip-hop and a dose of experimental ideas.
Azoora consists today of singer and songwriter Paul Loader, producer, composer and multi instrumentalist John Purcell, drummer Ben Cochrane, and backing vocalist Trudi Lawrence. It was more than two years ago since the full band released something together and the result surpasses all expectations, comparable to the band’s best work. Perhaps the atmosphere is a little bit darker today and the music not so experimental, but the core of the music is the same as before, and the concept where the EP contains two alternative takes of each of their tracks.
So sit down, make yourself comfortable, listen, and be carried away by our flagship and most important artist: Azoora!
[MotNiM] (short for Mystery of the Ninth Morning) is a new EP of music by dmyra. At only three songs, these are some of dmyra’s longest and deepest tracks to date. As the album and track titles suggest, this musical work is shrouded in mystery. Each minute is just as cryptic as the last. The final track, a complete epic, will still leave you wanting more. More music and more answers. dmyra told me that “interpretation is everything.” Perhaps that is the key to the meanings within. “goodbye parks and gardens…”
Here is the Return of Adam Radmall (aka PlusPlus), Plantman’s guitarist (WHO HAVE A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT ON ARLEN RECORD IN EARLY 2013).
After the extraordinary album “Evils” released in March 2011 by La bel netlabel, here is eight new electro-acoustic tracks with a subtle melancholy that characterizes the PlusPlus’s compositions.
Also available in limited CD edition with four extra bonus tracks.
“My ear were literally staggered as soon as the first notes of this disk” La Grosse Radio Rock
“An album you can taste listening after listening” NetMusic Life
“An interesting and pleasing album” iThink magazine
Nylon and Turtle was recorded after that, while he was watching jazz pianist Brad Mehldau, Sergi boal, guitarist and composer, had a revelation: the necessity to create his own music. This necessity led him few months later to record this CD. There are 9 songs, most of them recorded in one or two takes, so it’s almost a live recording. It is an organic and intimate album, in which the guitarist tries to make a little travel. As in Ice Voice, where it can be appreciated the Nordic influences of Jose Gonzalez, or Yorke, where we can hear echoes of Radiohead. Fukushima is a tribute to the victims of the tsunami in Japan, in where it mixes anger and calm; The incident of the Bell features great tecnique and sounds with a mixture of pop and grunge music, all with the same nylon guitar. In Frontera, the flamenco sounds in his fingers, and take us to Orecchio di Dioniso, and then we get carried away through the last song of the album, “Is anybody out there?”, a composition that borrows the title from Pink Floyd, ending with a question. This album is the starting point of this guitarrist of Barcelona, who decided one day to make his own music with the guitar. Sit back and listen … is anybody out there?
(this album is a joint release with the No-source netlabel)
No-Source Netlabel is pleased to bring you the re-release of Background Radiation’s debut EP. The amusingly titled “False Start” was originally released in 2008 on Jog/Shuttle. The 2012 version has been recently remastered and contains a previously unreleased bonus track. This new track, titled “Recovery Basin,” is based upon elements from their 2010 track “Discovery Basin.” “Discovery Basin” can be found on No-Source’s debut compilation “Hey You, Choose Your Own Adventure.” Like Background Radiation’s second EP, “Moot Point,” “False Start” combines acoustic instruments with downtempo electro-pop experimentalism.
Hielo en Varsovia was born in Madrid in 2010 crossing the dark talents of Narcoleptica (guitar) and the interest of ex-members of 8bits To Die, Ki (keyboard and vocals) and Buddy (drums and vocals), to explore other areas in his new musical project.
The noise accompanying their anguished melodies creating landscapes closer to the subconscious that in real life, opting for a sound that mixes the new/dark/cold wave, with its obvious post-punk will.
His first album with us is the same name and contains 13 songs full of abyss and sulfur. A prodigy.
