Havah’s ‘Contravveleno’

vinile havah1500cd1500havah

Havah‘s third LP ‘Contravveleno‘ is finally out! Contravveleno (antidote) is their most razor sharp, dense and assertive effort, a cold plunge by one of Italy’s darkest bands into one of the countries’ most wretched pictures, a moment that united the toughest and brought out the bravest. Inspired by the stories of Ravenna partisans fighting off Nazi-Fascists during WWII.

 

I’m not big on sending quotes and all but very proud that folks all over the world have been responding to this LP and going beyond the language barrier reminding us that we’re not only going through dark times… there is more.

 

NPR“Contravveleno pushes the physicality of the genre in which they traffic with attendant sophistication and grace.”
Stereogum (Album Of The Week) – “Contravveleno is lush and expansive and pretty in its despair. It’s dark music for dark times, and losing yourself in it feels good.”

Geodetic

geodetic1500

Excited to welcome Geodetic, electronic duo of Claudio Rocchetti and Jukka Reverberi, into the Maple Death family. Industrial, techno, cassette culture, avant-garde fascination are all part of their sonic palette. Listen to ‘III’ from their debut ‘Broken Consonance‘ (MDR018) out on July 14th and check out what Inverted Audio has to say about it.

“As rowdy drums, barbed melancholic pads and boisterous synth flights get dunked through a coarse-grained sound design, the vibe is equally solemn and uplifting on the mesmeric ‘III‘.”

Blak Saagan – A Personal Voyage

blaksaagancover1500BS1500fotocassetta

A Personal Voyage is Blak Saagan’s debut, his first journey into obscurity, 90 minutes (!!!) of music dedicated to the ongoing discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space, directly inspired by the work of cosmologist and science popularizer Carl Sagan.

INFOS & ORDER

— “Cavalcando la Cometa 67P” evolves patiently with percolating, distorted electronic blips, melodic fragments, and a simmering ride gliding along while the texture deepens and expands at an almost imperceptible pace, finally kaleidoscopically exploding over a groovy motorik beat to fulfill its psychedelic library Kosmische dream. —- TinyMixTapes

— “The energy often accelerates into warped passages of brilliant library music, with pulsating beats and thick motorik grooves that plunge the listener deeper into whatever bit of the celestial topography has Gottardello’s ear.” — Decoder

Dead Horses are free

1500

Dead Horses Ballad For Losers is finally out, very happy to unleash this corker. Everything you need to know is already HERE. Enjoy it and bring one home. Go for it.

Dead Horses’ ‘No Wahala’

deadhorselive

Head over to AdHoc to hear another scorching Dead Horses track from their upcoming ‘Ballad For Losers’ out next week.

“Dead Horses, a three-piece experimental cowpunk band from the Ferrara province in Italy, have nailed deconstructed blues. Their new track “No Wahala” from Ballad For Loser is like Keiji Haino’s Black Blues gone country. In the song, a plodding rhythm propels spindly, precise guitar work as incanted vocals float atop the track’s aggressive swagger.”

PRE-ORDER this baby!

Dead Horses are coming!

coverDH1500

Ladies and gents, please welcome Dead Horses to the growing Maple Death family. Their tape ‘Ballad For Losers‘ will be out at the end of the month but in the meanwhile you can listen to song ‘Morning Hell’ over at BrooklynVegan!
“From Ferrara, Italy come weirdo folk trio Dead Horses… channelling Dylan, early Velvet Underground, R Stevie Moore, Gun Club and other outliers.” BOOM!

Cindy Lee’s MALENKOST LP

coverCL1500

Sometimes you wait a lifetime for things like this… Beyond honoured to announce ‘MALENKOST‘ LP the first in a series of reissues dedicated to one of our all time (and current!!!) fav artists CINDY LEE. We are teaming up with the great Superior Viaduct / W.25TH to bring you a series of releases plus new music from longtime friend Patrick Flegel.

Out April 7th 2017, INFOS, LONG REEEEADDD & PRE-ORDER.

“Describing a world of beauty, escape, sorrow, loss and catharsis usually needs a strong leap of faith and when it comes to music such a feat is almost impossible, modern day consumption is pulling us by the throats and we don’t have time to surrender, we don’t have time to let the fog, the mystery, the universal shine seek into our eyes and creep into our minds. There are exceptions, Cindy Lee is one of them, a rare all-in lifer, flickering candle.”
