second album is a dark fairy tale brimming with layers of tremolo
guitars, tactile percussion, soft analog synths and moon-dusted vocal
melodies. The tracks take you on a slow-motion free fall through the
rabbit hole into an ethereal world of spectral soundscapes, lush pop
opulence and minimalism drawing inspiration from science fiction, french
70s film scores and Lynchian mysticism. With this record, Fenster
ventures into new spaces, exploring different techniques,
instrumentation and song structures. The album's title and aesthetic
derive from the concept of a make-belief heaven, a place you go when you
die that only exists in your mind.
'The Pink Caves' is released as LP, CD, MC or digital.

Th Go Find come up with a new album, and it's a love album. On 'Brand New Love', the decade of the New Romantics shimmers through in every song. But The Go Find treats those classic eighties sounds in a surprisingly fresh manner: a mix of indie, electronics and some smooooth synth-loving, combined with the already well-known The Go Find sound. There is a brandnew video for 'The Lobby', that gives you the full idea.
'Brand New Love' is officially released on February, 7th (LP/CD/digital), but it is already anost.net.

After recording some killer cover versions of Bryan Ferry or Frederick Loewe, Masha now sings The Cure's second hit 'Boys Don't Cry'. After more than 30 years of heavy Indie-Disco rotation, you might be sick of that song, but Mashas version is just too clever: First she adds a rhythmic Kelis-citation ('Trick Me'). This also brings (even more) gender twist here, as it may also be seen as a comment on Robert Smiths elaborated moaning. Later she simply skips that momentum, that wants to make you sing along – by freezing the song. On the flip, the guitar work of James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump) guitar adds some gentle funk to Masha's recent single 'Fishing Buddies'. There is a brandnew video for Boy's Don_t Cry, too!
7inch comes with silkscreened cover & is limited to 251 copies. Available exclusive via anost.net!

Electronic pop fruitcakes múm return with a new single,
before coming up with a whole new album later in 2013. The A-side
"Toothwheels" starts off with echoes of their millenium-era rhythms,
which morph into shadows (reminiscent of their foggy masterpiece 'Summer
Make Good'). Flourishing strings and teeming arpeggios elevate the
track, that spins along in a cyclical motion before it is being washed
away in a tide of abstraction. The lulling vocals disguise the songs
fatalistic lyrics, evoking an eerie sense of immateriality. B-side's
tune "Cranes Like Ships" is again built around booming electronic beats
and confused synthesizers, but it's a much happier affair.
