As per tradition, six tunes that missed becoming part of past full-length records – collected into an ep, mega-ecclectic as always. Beauty, dirt, melody, chaos, casio beats, screaming, a ballad, grunge riffs, casio-disco, tribal pounding.
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.
poj.wlkp’s new album ‘Do Zorzy’ is their 10th and presents their best recordings to date. The wonderful progression continues, as the creative force behind the project, Jan Strach, fine tunes his abilities and really focuses them into a unique and forlorn dreamy atmosphere. Taking 4 years to create, these songs have been excruciatingly crafted and analyzed by an artist who has poured his heart and the secrets of his soul into every sound and lyric. Each song has an interesting structure with layers of ambiance, character and experimentation strewn about the melodies, all while maintaining a core of folk.
The opening song “Zrobilem Sobie Spacer” sets the tone of the album with a wonderfully noodling guitar dancing throughout its ether, ultimately climaxing in howling melody. The album continues triumphantly with peaks and valleys, all weaving in and out of heartfelt lyrics and lush instrumentals. Coming full circle at the end with “Białe Pola,” a beautiful acoustic number reminiscent of the early days of poj.wlkp. Two bonus tracks grace the Unfinite Records release, both of which only add to the album’s allure. On the whole, ‘Do Zorzy’ is a crowning effort waiting to be explored on a rainy day in your heart of hearts.
There’s no doubting that todays music technology is powerful and versatile and Rephazer shows us how powerful with his EP he called the ‘Holiday Mixtape’
And it’s just that, a mixtape (or sketches) created while on holiday at the various locations in the track names (I’m guessing). Created entirely on one single piece of Swedish Engineered hardware (from the guys that made the Sidstation way back when) called the OP-1 (for those listeners interested).
Rephazer creates some fantastic moody, detailed and atmospheric Boards of Canada inspired tracks. Perhaps from the same sound palette for each track, but all with a chilled out vibe. Summer is drawing to a close but kick back and relax beside the pool listening to Rephazer!
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. A true provincial masterpiece
Rough distorted rhythms and hazy melodies. A combination of raw machine jams and jagged textures of lo-fi pads. Fuzzy aesthetics built by field recordings, samples and personal memories. In his debut on sonic moiré nnls musically refers to streets of his home in Italy. Every track is a musical quote of a drive or journey, every title a reference to an existing road. A musical cartography of the artists environment. This piece portrays a persons connection to its environment and its paths, which is captured in the title of the album.
This album is also available as a limited, elaborate tape version and includes a mirroreffect packaging, booklet, download code, bonus tracks and a sticker.

As per yearly tradition, Jan presents an ep with material that did not fit the full-length album from previous year, in this case “Jan Pierwszy Starszy”. As with every JS e.p. there are no rules and the diversity of genres is breathtaking. Here we have casio-retro-wave, guitar post rock, noisy guitars overlaying, joyful turkish zurna-pop with broken time signature and an anthem of the priviledged man with a sturdy beat. As always on Underpolen netlabel, the lo-fi and DIY atmosphere is everpresent in spirit and on surface.
Deftechnixks explores the core of noisy rock music, by stripping it of all non-essentials. All that is left is energetic experimental post-punk clatter featuring unschooled screaming, a drumset consisting of boxes and tins, and an electric guitar with strings crossed. This results in a heap of joyful, noisy rock-bashing in the amateur, passionate spirit characteristic for all underpolen releases.
In December 2015 the commonest comember of Projekt Luty, Stach, visited the Nad Garażem Studio fresh from the British Isles for a joyful recording session. As always the project’s aim is to combine the knowledge and abilities of a person with (some) musical abilities, and the enthusiasm and fresh approach of a person unblemished with musical-theoretical background. And as always, at the crossroads we have an unimitable, undefineable organized chaos galloping through psychedelia, krautrock, punk, post-punk, even ambient and grunge, while keeping its lo-fi and homemade charm.
“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.
The title could suggest that this is a debut, [“Jan the first the elder”], but it is far from the truth – this album is JS’s 60th (sixtieth!) release overall and 8th under his own name. But at the same time, after years of refining, meandering and looking for his “own sound”, the sworn-lofi experimental casio rocker claims to finally have achieved the middle ground between all his influences and interests on this one. And although jumping between many styles, it is in fact his most balanced yet – synth-pop, post-punk, shoegaze, chillwave, experimental tendencies leave enough space to breathe for pop sensibilities and epic synths – and as usual DIY spirit ensures that nothing is ever too calculated and lifeless – things constantly move, snap to place, click and keep the sounds flowing organically. And all Jan Strach trademarks are still here, distorted synths, some heavy guitars, some lovely delayed noodlings, romantic strings, odd time signatures, noisy outbursts, curious samples, and plenty of plain weirdness.
Proudly released on July 14th as part of the global Netlabel Day 2016, on the best Polish place for the homemade DIY lofi weirdness, Underpolen Netlabel.
Everywhere Kingdom continues the adventure in the improvised/stream-of-consciousness realm but again takes the music in an entirely new direction. Whereas its predecessor was a hypnotic chillout adventure meandering through blurry clouds of warmly distorted synths and subdued guitars, here NOISE and RHYTHM are kings. Pummeling distorted beats, squealing and stuttering synth loops draw the listener into a brutal, yet groovy, experience. Bouncing between primitive hip-hoppy beats (Jellypit, Chimp Thug), industrial (Corrosive, Sno-Blower), techno (Saibaba Goblets, Shrrum Vacuum), ande even making a stop at noisy-casio-ska (When I Die), all slathered in static and distortion, the 9 tracks here make for an uncompromisingly thrilling ride which similarly exhausts and leaves the listener wanting more.
Released on Underpolen Netlabel, home for the raw, weird, homemade lofi treasures.
