poj.wlkp, one of 9 musical projects of polish amateur musician Jan Strach, has always been his outlet for the most depressing, intimate feelings and it is not different this time. Sadness prevails in the lyrics and the melodies alike, which as always follow the diy ethics stated in poj.wlkp’s “hortifolk” manifesto, but here the instrumental tracks are much more polished and include synths, keyboards and effects, no longer leaving the acoustic guitar as the main instrument.
The melodies have been created as combination of fits of inspiration, structured improvisation and laborous calculation in order to achieve something original yet not overbearing or pretentious. Somewhere between sadcore, gothic, folk and rock, the songs penetrate an area of eternal melancholy, while taking interesting turns in chord choices, rhythm and structure.
The album took 3 years of creation in a process equally excruciating, purifying and satisfying. This is the end result, a labour of love of one person, perhaps lacking in professionalism, but never in genuine passion and spirit. Dark, sad and avoiding obvious solutions, and thus adhering the philosophy of every poj.wlkp album so far.
This is the first release in Linear Obsessional’s “RetroLinear” series- bringing attention missed opportunities andlost leads from the past.
This EP by the Teesside post punk band Tick Tick was recorded at Guardian Studios in County Durham in June 1980, “My Swelling Heart” was intended to be released as a follow up to the band’s 12″ EP “The Immortalisation of Tick Tick” by the expanded, more dynamic version of the band, but never got out of the can. Remastered from the original recordings “My Swelling Heart” reveals a band confidently pushing into new areas – including elements of funk, dub and world music, with startling philosophical lyrics and all underpinned by a beautifully recorded new rhythm section.

This is an important album for Projekt Luty for two reasons. It is the first album recorded in nine years; plus, it is the first one recorded in “studio” conditions so to speak, or at least was not recorded to casette tape like all the previous ones. Musically as always with Projekt Luty it is unpredictable, but at the same time surprisingly coherent. Songs are locked within a tornado of swirling effects, simple tranceful repetitions of guitars and keyboards and occasional freakouts. All music as always is improvised but thanks to studio magic, was reinforced after recording with additional synth and drum tracks. It is dense, all the time balancing between order and disorder, alternately fun and dark, noisy and dreamy, always exciting and full of diy charm and jangle.

Born in 2012, between Rome and Florence, the brainchild of Massimiliano Governali and Fabio Chiantini, with the aim of interpreting through music, facts, events and news of our times.
In this issue we talk about the negotiation state-mafia, environmental disasters, corruption and doping in football, the massacre of the Diaz school in Genova in 2001, the Greek crisis, the mysterious death of 23 of the 25 marines who captured Bin Laden, the world’s fastest man and the Higgs boson.
Jan Strach returns with a collection of songs gathered from his short lived “Out of Strach” project which presented each month a new short film, photos, a short story and two pieces of music. The songs were recorded between January and May and due to the time constraints JS had to go with the first inspiring thought that he got at the moment – whichgave some great and varied results. The opening track is based on the reversed melody of “Frere Jacques” but ends in a stoner feakout. There are atmospheric pieces about being followed by a woman driver and the death of dr Greene from the hit tv series “E.R.”; a tribute to Opel Astra over 5 different melodies in 3 different genres. Apparent are irregular rhythms and non-obvious melodies which JS has much love for, and equally much amateur passion and diy spirit, as always on the Underpolen netlabel.
“Eddie Huragan” is dedicated to mr Eddie Palmer of the tremendous The Fucked Up Beat, who fought the hurricane.
“Suddenly a bird” was written to graduate the online songwriting course at Berkeley music school.
Artist: Burning House
Title: Burning House
Format: MP3 [320 kbps; stereo; 44,1 kHz]
Burning House have created a sepia-tinted sound that is both pastoral and psychedelic. The glacial arpeggios, the guttural feedback that owe’s much to the cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky, as it does to the likes of Red House Painters and My Bloody Valentine.
The music truly takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions which evolves a certain sadness, elation, but also black humor.
Chiptune’s greatest and most prolific horrorpunkster ‘+Let’s Disinfect!+’ is gracing TWG with a self-titled album, three years in the making, and his usual bouts of anthemic chippunk.
Continuing our tradition of showcasing chiptune with experimental or ‘out of the ordinary’ applications, Sean Monistat, aka +Let’s Disinfect!+, produces his most diverse album yet. Whilst tracks like ‘My Life Hurts’ and the title track delve into that familiar upbeat +LD!+ sound, this debut full-length sees an expansion of Let’s Disinfect’s repertoire, drawing on post-punk sounds on ‘Melted Ice Cream’, prog metal meanderings in ‘A Garden of Mutants’ and nods to chipthrash in ‘Buy My Lawnmower!’. This all adds up to the most diverse Let’s Disinfect release to date.
As with most releases here on TWG, ‘+Let’s Disinfect!+’ is a grower, and repeat listens will let those punk pop-lined hooks dig only deeper into the brain, until every single lyric is engraved into natural impulse. And if the adhesive motifs weren’t enough, the vibrancy of textures and styles coated with that trademark ‘less-is-more’ chip (in this case DS) programming and crowd-chanting shouts of frontman Sean leave this release in the stratosphere when comparing it to vocal/chip albums of the past. From the plodding determination of ‘Contact!’ to the ferocious outburst of the title track, Let’s Disinfect! continues to cement himself as an essential forward thinker within an often saturated scene, and an extremely talented one at that.

“The Wasp and the Butcher…and the Bird / Coma (single)”
This is the single from the new Nick Rivera’s album called “Zamalek“.
Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between. This album is about the sky you can’t see from this island and the things that swim in it.
Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.
A huge guy with heavy glasses and a drop tuned electric guitar, a woman 10 feet tall, computer beats and synth basses. Post industrial beats, stoner bass loops, metal riffs and german lyrics. Guitars cannot be to loud, drum patterns never to stoical, bass licks never to dark, lyrics never to sealed.
„Their songs are precise, concise in the best sense, and in use of the sometimes minimalistic means highly effective. And damn powerful. Even if their message is disenchanting, their sound gives pleasure“ (Felix Klopotek, Stadtrevue Cologne magazine 4/2013)
Marco Cervellin, the force behind Wacky Southern Current, returns with his third album on No-Source. Argonautica continues the trend of high quality instrumental albums from Marco. To give Wacky Southern Current one genre is to sell the music short. A wide range of influences fill up each release from Marco. Argonautica is no exception. This is a more guitar-centric album with Kraut influences, particularly on the track “We Are Argonauts.” “French Radio” is a short burst of experimental soundscape, while “Blues in A” is an excellent seven minute jazz workout. Wacky Southern Current heads is new directions with such musicianship that it’s hard to believe they haven’t been there all along. Argonautica is: Marco Cervellin – guitars, bass, keyboards. Gianni “Ian” Garbo – guitars. Giacomo Gatti – drums.
