As tradition goes, the Polish purveyor of lo-to mid-fi experimental pop and rock publishes a short collecton of songs that for one reason or another did not make it to the previous year’s full-length. As always kaleidoscopic, stylistically unpredictable and undefinable with regular genre terms, it melts together post-rock passages, distorted casio beats, crazed noise rock, layered askew pop harmonies with irregular time signatures, a chopped up, triumphant organ hymn.
As always proudly published on Polish home for all homemade, passionate and DIY, Underpolen Netlabel.
«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. »
STEKKLO is a Russian electronic band formed solely by Arkady Cherkashin. His production style was created under the influence of psychedelic-pop bands of new wave as well as of Soviet rock and synth-pop bands. STEKKLO music style can be characterized as a synth-popelectroclash with the elements of lo-fi and acoustic, although the musician doesn’t specify the genre of his project. This main idea is harmony of different kinds of sound and it’s styles in art and live on the whole.

Second release by the cosmic artist Chix, a journey into the human being’s duality.
Four songs, two sides: “Happy Side” and “Sad Side”. The first one includes “La rapina in pizzeria” and “Le amiche di funch”, two delirious genre songs, with cheeky lyrics, while “Gocce” and “Cinico” fulfil the introspective intention: they talk about love and ego.
Featuring Marina Carbone (choirs and guitars), who was an important contributor to the whole work.
Absolutely black, resolutely extremist, metallically chaotic, at the crossroads of experimental garage and industrial boogie, blues and psychotic Transylvanian noisy, Grand Guru’s kinda rock’n’roll is brought to the world, without an epidural, in form of birth of the monsters and nightmares that haunt our Rouen-based sorcerer.

Hello and welcome to the Underpopular hits compilation, the third of its kind!
This is the idea: everytime another 20 albums get released on the Underpolen Netlabel, the glorious father of the undernation, Jan Strach, lovingly selects one song from each release to compile into a presentation for all of mankind, to represent what Underpolen is all about.
And we are about freedom of creative expression, creativity with no boundaries, laughing in the face of genre divisions, we love slip-ups and false starts, accidental noises and experiments of all kind. Pixels, artifacts, blurs and smudges around the edges. Ballpoint marks, scratchmarks, fingerprints all over the lovely amateur, homemade creations.
And we would like to share all of it with you.
The lovingly murky, atmospheric rock of poj.wlkp, trapped in a world of eternal sunset;
The ever surprising imrpovised rock of Projekt Luty, where at all times there has to be at least one person included with no background in music whatsoever; ranging from noise and electronics, to casio backing psychedelic twisted soundscapes,
The mysterious, beautiful piano meanderings captured via dictaphone of Proyect? Moone Jazzers, a musician from western Europe who never told us who he was, sent us these lofi recordings and vanished;
The deconstruction of all that we know about rock music, straight from Deftechnixks;
The layered stream of consciousness synth loops amounting to a chillwave orgasmo from Everywhere Kingdom;
The many faces of Jan Strach, from goth rocker, through intricate meditations over an ocean, to casio melodies for children and full fledged electronified punk rock;
Noises and field-recording drones and collages of Secrets Of The 45, sometimes together with Romania’s Nava Spatiala;
Troglodisco of D.L.A.M.I.A.D., clashing ripped samples with a tact and style of a 12 year old deaf kid with elephant hands.
And as always three bonus tracks for your enjoyment because we love you dearly.
If you dig any of these artists in particular, there are links to their bandcamp accounts when you click on a track.

New 5 song EP from singer-songwriter and sound-maker Simon Waldram, Nottinghamshire, UK.
During his musical journey Simon’s been exploring many different paths: drone, acoustic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, twee pop, electronic etc. Always in a pure lo-Fi key.
On his new EP Simon gives us five new beautiful pop-pearls with its feet standing steady in 60´s psychedelia, punk rock and a brilliant DIY attitude.
Jan Strach, a lofi artist and an avid worshipper of the DIY doctrine, returns with another full length, as sprawling and ecclectic , as are JS’s inspirations: Frank Zappa, P.M. Dawn, 90s nostalgia, the city of Poznań, cheesy Casio sounds, odd time signatures, wacky chord changes.
There are no dull moments here, no filler, genres skipping between synth pop, grunge, progressive elements and even elements of reggae and fusion jazz interludes. The landscape is filled with elements of 90s popculture (through a Polish lens), and the cryptic lyrics describe, in Polish, nostalgic reality with poetic pathos. All the songs are , as all on Underpolen netlabel, with a lo-fi angle and a homeproduced charm.
Jan Strach is always ready to play with forms and genres. There is a song in 15/16 about a clock, adding 1 letter each verse up to 12. There is a bluegrass/country song with a warped synth interlude. An upbeat Casio pop number which suddenly erupts with farmyard samples which transform it into a swinging jazz instrumental. And so on.
The main hero of the album, however is the melody. It is clear that this is Jan Strach’s first love, and the thing that he keeps aiming for. Amidst all this disregard for genre and stylistic clarity, the one utmost pervasive tendency can be seen, and that is, to keep the tunes pretty and memorable.
Released on Jan Strach’s Underpolen Netlabel, where you can find all of his other projects and bands, as well as other riveting DIY acts
Novim albumom “Pretvaram osjećaje u stihove”, Čopor nastavlja svoje začudno putovanje. Ambijentalnim mračnim improvizacijama u kombinaciji sa zvucima koji nas svakodnevno okružuju u prirodi i predmtima kojima se koristimo u svakodnevnom životu stvara atmosferu nadrealnog svijeta a stihovima koje izgovara ponire u dubine podsvijesti i izvlači na površinu sve potisnute strahove, frustracije, melankoliju ali i traži put do ljubavi, nade i svijetla. Putujmo zajedno…
“cHE fICA lA mUSICA eLETTRONICA (NetlabelDayEdition)”
is participating on the first Netlabel Day 2015 ever!
formerly known as FabioRosho and releasing a mixture of 8-bit, industrial and breakbeat experiments since 2009, electronic producer Fabio Crivellaro decides to upgrade his lo-fi gear and to focus on a more synthetic and groovy sound for his new incarnation: here it is, dIGITAL dISAGIO
Released as part of the first global Netlabel Day, this e.p. by Jan Strach continues the tradition started with the previous e.p., “Jan Strach Piszczy W Narożniku”. It collects songs and instrumentals created while Jan Strach was working on his full length albums, their only problem being that they did not fit in with the longplays’ general atmosphere.
Otherwise, Jan Strach is proud and happy to present to the world this collection of beautiful things, as usual with JS full of stylistic surprises: a wobbly weave of ping-pongy piano combined with a barely breathing flute and a dirty one-string guitar; a marimba-stylophone luau reverberating as if from a cave with stomping and finger snaps. A shoe-noisy dreamy rock tune about travelling birds, and a punk thing with girly choruses in a time signature of i-lost-count/4 and a toy and a flute; that’s not all.
As usual with Underpolen Netlabel offerings it is lo-fi, diy, full of odd passionate homemade energy.
New album of Chita musician and poet Sergei Zolin, aka Pavkashavet Bantut perhaps the most dismal in the discography of the artist. «Сон прошлогоднего снега» – is a 35-minute dive into the darkness of what we call the post-Soviet space. And if “The voices on the stairs of Jacob” may denote something, so it would be the voices on a ladder between earth and hell. Quite notable is the only thing with text support – «Долгое прощание», after which you will feel binding approaching of hopelessnes from all sides.
