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 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.”

Stromboli’s VOLUME UNO is out

stromboli1500 stromboli2web

VOLUME UNO, Stromboli‘s debut is out today. His tape in 2015 basically inaugurated our small label and to see him evolve, grow and deliver this incredible mind bending LP is a real treat.

“Beneath a saturated nebulous city landscape lies a mirror reflecting sharp, complex particles of light that disappear under the faintest drop of rain, literally silver dissolving into rust, mercury poisoning the train tracks of modern paranoia. Through the cracks, the chilled warmth of Stromboli’s Volume Uno rises, expanding on the notion of a solitary figure gasping for life in an industrial setting.”

Listen to Stromboli’s Drag Phase

1500strombolivolumeunostromboli2web

We already told you that Stromboli is back with Volume Uno on Feb 10th. Listen to opening track Drag Phase via Inverted Audio.

Nice words: “… tape-saturated canvas of anxiogenic ambiences, shadow-clad synth psychedelia and grainy-textured layers, the Bologna-based artist takes you on for a borderline, hallucinogenic trip across semi-abstract cityscapes and barren post industrial terrains as seen through an insecure, paranoid-like perspective… Our pick – the album’s opener ‘Drag Phase‘, shows the most stripped-back facet of a black-hearted monolithic whole slowly disintegrating in thick carbonic fumes and pitch-dark sooty peels. Winter depression is almost gone. Almost.”
