Some tunes from the backstock

I often wonder why it is that the best records always sell the worst… at least the best records in my opinion… and this is true for both my own label releases as webshop items… so I went through my backstock and found some really excellent releases safely stored waiting for some people who recognise the quality of the music… below just a few examples of some treasures hidden in the Enfant Terrible webshop… and first here a few more tips for the adventurous listeners among you: His Divine Grace/De Grace split LP, Future Blondes LP, Smycken/Viking Jews split LP and Lowfish 7″…

Tobias Bernstrup and Tindersticks

Lots of things are being imagined and planned for 2015… but these first few days of the year my focus has been mostly on the new Tobias Bernstrup album which is going to the pressing plant soon. Next to that I am listening to some records old and new…

Tobias_RomanticismTobias Bernstrup… of course a familiar name for those who know my label… his next album is called ‘Romanticism‘ and will come in a vinyl edition (album plus 12 inch) in collaboration with Tobias’s his own Tonight Records. The audio master has been checked and now we are finalising the last few changes to the artwork… so all will be ready for the pressing plant soon…

 

tindersticks_ypresAlso I ordered the Tindersticks album ‘Ypres’ from last year… one of those records I forgot to order when it came out… this is an album the band did for the World War I museum in Ypres in Belgium. What you get served is beautiful soundscapes… a bit of modern classical music… rather moody (of course I would like to add)… this could also serve as soundtrack to a WOI film for sure… it has the tension and mood fitting perfectly… although military sounds pop up in the background from time to time the music is all about an atmospheric music experience and not at feeding you with explicit military sounds and music as is often done in WOI (and II) inspired “pop music”… but as said… this is more modern classical music as pop music anyway…
