Out now: Fenster's 'The Pink Caves'

Fenster's 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.

 
CD, LP, MC are available via anost.net & come with an instant download!  A strictly limited edition on clear vinyl is only available from anost.net & on Fenster's live shows.

'Brand New Love' by The Go Find now pre-released!

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.

Masha Qrella: Boys Don't Cry / Fishing Buddies

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!

Aloa Inputs 'Anysome‘

Aloa Input's debut album is released today! – you can get it via anost.net!


Drawing from a long list of influences all three members agree upon (e.g. Animal Collective, Eno, Beck, Beatles, Morricone, Why?, Can, The Notwist), Aloa Input are well aware of the album’s world-spanning approach, mentioning “guitars from Cape Town to Portland, beats from Berlin to Chicago, and vocals from NYC to Düsseldorf”. And yet there’s more to Anysome: the exotic detours, the band’s willingness to experiment and to go that extra mile for a good hook, the hypnotic singing and electrified horizons, all neatly placed on top of minimalist basslines. Another important skill mastered by Aloa Input: Though certainly not content with doing just one thing, the resulting itinerary never resembles a zigzag line.

múm: Smilewound now pre-released w/ extra 7inch!

múm release their 6th album 'Smilewound', that really marks a new step of Icelands finest electronic pop band, which sounds more focussed than ever. múm – this goes for the music as well as for the line-up - is in a state of constant change: For 'Smilewound', the charismatic singer and former band member Gyða Valtýsdóttir has returned to the band. Sparser in sound than many of its predecessors, 'Smilewound' is an airy, relaxed record, that will make you smile often – despite the heavenly voices singing about violence in one form or another in most songs. On 'Smilewound' múm's capability to build playful electronic sound-ornaments around simple melodies is in full bloom!

Officially the album is out next Friday, but it will be shipped from today on via anost.net – and only at anost: with every LP comes a strictly limited 7inch (100 copies only!) called 'Mystery', that contains five exclusive instrumental pieces! (The LP comes in deluxe gatefold cover and includes the mp3 version of the album.)

múm will start touring this month (presented by De:Bug) & their very special guest is going be no other than Sin Fang - who will perform a 'one-man-show' (stating, he trusts in the help of 'some robots and holy ghosts').

Múm: Toothwheels

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.
