NamNamBulu - Borders

2017-03-09 (News)

14 years have passed since the spectacular debut album "Distances" by NamNamBulu took the international electropop scene by storm. But the band suddenly stopped due to the split of their members back in 2006. But their catchy clubhits such as "Memories", "Now or Never", "Beaten" or "Alone" never really disappeared.
Then, almost out of nowhere the band did re-unite in 2014 with their first new single release entitled "Sorry" within 2014.
Now, 2017, they return with a massive second album under the flag of "Borders".
10 new songs with almost 60 minutes of running time bringing you charismatic and catchy new tunes by songwriter Vasi Vallis and singer Henrik Iversen.

2017-03-08 (News)

On "An jedem einzelnen Tag" Louis Manke once again is setting out emotional moments carried by catchy harmonies. Driven by hope and the undying will to look forward, the new songs are directly reaching out to the listener with an air of lightness and confidence in clearly formulated lyrics and sounds. Veteran producers Henning Verlage (Unheilig) and Ingo Politz (Silly, Silbermond, Joris) have provided Louis Manke's ideas with a modern sound that doesn't shy away from grandeur.

Aegri Somnia - Endtime Psalms

2017-03-07 (News)

Aegri Somnia returns with long awaited "Endtime Psalms" album.
The hum of the "Endtime Psalms" echo through burnt out buildings. Awaiting impending death as the sky grows dark. Black smoke wheezing from charred windows. We we're born from stardust, but are but puppets in a mindless game of DNA manipulation, life.
Deep analogue drones rumble under the heavy boots of the human machine. Aegri Somnia plays the role of field recorder and audio manipulator with surgical precision.

Scout Paré-Phillips - Door Left Open

2017-03-06 (News)

Scout took to pen and paper, composing a song cycle that beautifully and painstakingly reflects her despair. The album explores intimate themes that give infinite weight to her songs – anchoring them here on earth while the subject of love lost and found reverberates like soundwaves floating up and out in the atmosphere. Scout seems to reopen her wounds then stitch herself back up again, using the only tools she has – powerful operatic vocals underscored by walls of haunting, ambient tones.

SIJ - The Time Machine

2017-03-05 (News)

SiJ explores Time Travel on the album "The Time Machine".
The Time Machine propels us forwards and backwards in time. From ancient civilization, where the chatter reverberates in clouded temples. To our impending doom in a future stripped of humanity. A grinding squeal as the paradox cracks reality. At our feet blue skies reflected in a desert of broken mirrors.
Warm soothing field recordings mix with bright overlays and distant instruments.

Written, Produced, Performed -Vladislav Sikach; Artwork & Mastering - Simon Heath.
