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.
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!
On this Various Artists compilation you can hear some vintage guitars produced in Eastern Block former countries, for example guitar brands like Jolana, Musima, Migma, Tonika, Ural, Mensfeld and many more!
Today Bralitz returns with another selection of songs for your auditory enjoyment. As with his first collection, these catchy tunes are likely to end up on repeat. Enjoy.
Thanks to Bralitz for another terrific 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 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’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.
“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.”
(…) An album, recorded quasi overnight, when check lists, fault-finder and top producer sleep. 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. (…)
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.
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 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
