PSYCHEDELIC/PROGRESSIVE/FOLK

ORWELL, PAUL - SPEAK OF THE DEVIL (7"/HEAVY SOUL)

The title-track "Speak of the Devil" is a total banger, brimful of attitude and gritty goodness. Paul and his band the Nightfalls lays down a bluesy backbeat and adds a ton of fuzzy guitars and organs straight outta the garage. Hell, theres even a few horns and strings attached this time around! The production is as always spot on, simply adding a next level to the raw factor of the songs. Limited to 250 copies.

ZEMENT - CAO*MGO (RED ON REMIX) (7"/SUNHAIR)

The original song on side A is a driven motorik Krautrock song with poppy synths, shiffting patterns and New Wave guitars. Side B features a remix by Red on, who deconstructed the song to its details and brings it back as a noisy UK-house influenced electronica piece with a krauty techno vibe.

SPAWN - SPAWN EP (12"/NASONI)

Three rock chicks from Melbourne release a self-titled EP loaded to the brim with psych, sludge and stoner vibes. The EP is characterized by a sharp contrast between ethereal vocals and distorted guitar, tough sludgy bass and hard-hitting drums. Prepare yourself for a unique and raw sound that is full of emotion and passion!

FUTURO ANTICO - DAI PRIMITIVI ALL'ELETTRONICA (LP/BLACK SWEAT)

This obscure gem from Italian project Futuro Antico gets reissued on vinyl.

Originally released by famous kraut label Brain in 1973, now reissued on DOUBLE-LP with remastered sound, here is Kollektiv's legendary self-titled album from 1973.

A large, 4-sided booklet full of info and photos is included. Great!

MOUNT ATLAS - MOUNT ATLAS (LP/H42)

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL/NOISE/NEOFOLK/GOTHIC

JUURI & JUURI - KORPIN MARSSI (CD/NORDIC NOTES)

Founded in 2003 by two professional folk musicians. Eero Grundstrom is the foremost reformer of Finnish harmonium, known for his percussive, innovative style and use of electronics - but still he loves pure Finnish traditional folk. Emilia Lajunen's powerful style claims its origins in archaic heritage and fiddler music.

SVJATA VATRA - MUUTUSED ZMINY (CD/NORDIC NOTES)

The bands sixth record "Muutused/Zminy" (changes) is literally riding the winds of change. We're dealing with Estonian folk music here. Originally polyphonic folk music inspired musicians to mix different styles: folk, rock, funky, indie and use Ukrainian ocarina (zozulia) together jews harp.

TORMIS QUARTET - TORMISELE (CD/NORDIC NOTES)

An hommage to veljo Tormis. Their idea to perform his works in an improvised jazz style was put into practice at the Tallinn based organisation Jazzkaar s celebration of Tormiss 85th jubilee.

WEED DEMON - ASTROLOGICAL PASSAGES (LP/ELECTRIC VALLEY)

ELECTRONIC MUSIC/AMBIENT/D’N’B/TRIPHOP

MITRA MITRA - MARIONETTES (LP/POLYTECHNIC YOU)

The band was formed in Vienna in late 2014 by Violet Candide and Mahk Rumbae. After working together on one of Violet's solo songs, "Heat", the pair decided to continue working together and formed Mitra Mitra as a more full time project, with the aim of writing electronic songs not tied to any particular influence or style. However, if there was such a thing as a signature PY sound- arguably this LP (alongside last years Vorderhaus full length), encapsulates it most. Beautifully icy cold synth pop straight outta early prime era Mute / Blackwing studios output. Serene yet melodic, edgy, dry icy hooks and delicious grooves aplenty all over this record. Eight wonderful tracks where quality and sheer melodic guile of the song writing never dips and attention truly is held across the whole set, no mean feat indeed. Limited to 300 copies.

OBJETIVO - MICROMUNDOS (LP/POLYTECHNIC YOU)

'Micromundos', needless to say for PY devotees, concentrates on his cruder electronic soundscapes; incredible often ambient, drone themed pieces that on one hand dip their toes into the revered works of Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius, and the sky back catalogue whilst equally conjuring up a collision of Spacemen 3 psych meets Wire, early Cabs or Magazine darker more atmospheric, post punk industrial/experimental workouts. Limited to 300 copies.
