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!

The Line of Apollo – The Line of Apollo (EP)

[BM08R17]

The Line of Apollo

“The Line of Apollo (EP)”

The Line of Apollo was founded by two friends (former classmates) in 2014. in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny, in the Russian Federation. Later, they were joined by two more participants.
The band members have played together since 2007, from school times, but the previous project broke up and a revived The Line of Apollo appeared from its ashes. The name was created as a derivative of the past band name (Underline The Sunday). The Line of Apollo also means “The Sun Line”. This line is on the palm of a man and symbolizes the creative beginning.
Initially, the band’s music was based on the youthful hobbies of the band by American alternative, pop-punk and punk bands such as Blink-182, Yellowcard, Sum-41, etc. Becoming older, the collective began to choose a heavier and atmospheric direction under the influence of already modern genres, like such as post-rock, post-hardcore, melodic-hardcore, etc. Although the vocal performance remained clear.

Luca Calcagno – La Pioggia Rinfresca L’Estate

[IYE23]

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.

poj.wlkp – Do Zorzy

[UPL 075]

poj.wlkp

“Do Zorzy”

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.

Jan Strach

“Bjurwa Fantomatyczna”

“Absolutely uncategorizable combination of rock, casio-electronics, lo-fi, majestic pop, punk, post-punk, krautrock, full of colliding samples, guitars, keyboards, whiny effects, but also beautiful melodies and non-dumb lyrics. For lack of a better term called by me “psychedelic chaos-pop”. A work of constantly sleep-deprived madman, made with love and as carefully as the modest setup allowed, so as to depict, as closely as possible, the inside of his tired head.”

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.

Various – Into The Rift Volume Two

[CAAN0002]

Various

“Into The Rift Volume Two”

The theme “World Wide Storms” for Into The Rift Volume Two, was inspired by looking at the world around us, the events and issues that are facing us. Whether those events are political, social, environmental, or something else, everyone has been touched by some looming storm in front of us.

Part of the fun in making a theme like this was that it left the artists open to interpretation. It could be literal, metaphor, allegory, or any of other ideas that the artists had in mind. And there are fifteen very different perspectives on the storms in our world today.

But there is also a consistency to this release. It’s not just a collection of recordings thrown together. Each artist has contributed a work that fits within the theme, making for a recording that is more experience than it’s predecessor.

The seventeen tracks on Into The Rift Volume Two represent a lot of different thoughts on the world, right now. But, I am optimistic about one thing: this is a work that will transcend current events.

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 – 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.

[BSMX0155]

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!

[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…”

Artem Bemba

“Sanctuary”

Artem Bemba — Sanctuary

Sanctuary, это следующий, после Hedgehog Feathers, опыт работы в стиле джаз-фюжн. Писался он примерно год, на трех разных квартирах, которые Артём успел за это время поменять. Здесь уже не использовался саксофон, но было большое количество клавишных партий и гитарных соло. Также в этом альбоме впервые использовались более новые и качественные семплы ударных инструментов.

«Первоначально хотел объединить песни концепцией сыпучих тел, но потом от этой идеи отказался. От нее остались только названия двух композиций — Flour и Sawdust. Затем я обратил внимание на какое то общее умиротворенное и спокойное настроение целого альбома и решил назвать пластинку Sanctuary, то есть, место, в котором всегда можно укрыться и отдохнуть от всех проблем. К этой концепции непосредственно относиться название последней композиции — Sheltering Shell. Так, что у меня получился альбом-убежище от ежедневных проблем и хлопот.»

P.S.: «Был у меня и «проклятый» трек, который постоянно зависал, самоизменялся, уничтожался и попросту не хотел нормально записываться, но чтобы уберечь слушателей, я не скажу который это трек.»

Jan Strach – Jan Pierwszy Starszy

[UPL 069]

Jan Strach

“Jan Pierwszy Starszy”

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.

Fake Cats Project – Russian Canon

[SCL183]

Fake Cats Project

“Russian Canon”

Russian Canon is the first CD of the Moscow based Fake Cats Project. The title certainly doesn’t mean our seventeen pieces form the Russian Canon, rather we are in search of it.
We try to avoid Russian cliches, but sometimes play with them. There are no folk songs accompanied by bayan (the Russian Accordion) though you will hear Kiriill Makushin playing bayan. We don’t play typical Russian rock, though Alexey Borisov is a luminary of Russian rock himself, of the bands Nochnoi Prospect and Tsentr. This is not an album of the Russian intelligentsia, singing their sad, simple songs around the kitchen table, though some fragments were recorded by Igor Levshin in Alexey’s kitchen.
Our Russian Canon is not confined to national culture: we use the Turkish saz and Latin percussion. Our electric guitars certainly do not originate from Russia, and Konstantin Sukhan’s trumpet is more akin to Free Jazz rather than any Russian tradition.
Any overlaps with industrial music or krautrock are sometimes coincidental and sometimes deliberate. Since there is a Russian tradition of fierce speculation on philosophy or revolution at the kitchen table, we use for our sound not cast iron rails, but a buffet filled with utensils, bottles, glasses and a trash bin. We’ve also added the creaks of rusty swings, screams, laughter and the songs of ordinary people in the Moscow streets. We include both the sane and insane, because no Russian Canon can go without a touch of insanity.

Daily Khaos delivery – Lose Your Ways

[BSOG0053]

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!
