If you saw Astral Swans perform during his Dutch tour in December ’18, you know you’re in for a treat. If you didn’t, now is your chance. The new I am Oak album is called Osmosis, and it’s fantastic (pleonasm, I know). So head on over to De Nijverheid on September 15!
Between 2001 and 2017, Circus Devils – the Ohio freak-rock trio founded by Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices) – released 14 full-length albums, each containing its own distinct sound and story-world. Remaining firmly under the radar throughout its run, the band provoked head scratching from music critics while providing fans with experimental cinema for the ears.
In ‘Circus Devils: See You Inside’, band member Todd Tobias offers a personal glimpse into the band’s playfully dark, psychedelic world. The very well-written A5 book has 204 pages, is in full colour, and has stories and images that every fan of Circus Devils, Todd Tobias or Robert Pollard will enjoy.
This is the first book released on Tiny Room Records. We are beyond psyched! It will see the light of day in September, but you can pre-order it by going here.
Toby Goodshank – “untitled” out today! A must-listen if you like antifolk, The Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis, rap, folk, indie rock, acoustic music, humor, vulgarity, and music in general.
We’re super happy with this weird and awesome slab of vinyl. It was released on CD ten years ago, and a few months ago Lousy Moon Records (from Frankfurt) and Toby asked us if we wanted to co-release it with them. Fuck yeah! We have been superfans of Toby’s music for a long time, so here we are. Cool yellow vinyl, an inlay with new artwork and lyrics, and a short tour coming up (with the release show 22 May in De Kromme Haring in Utrecht).
You can order the vinyl here:

Some cool quotes from the press so far:
De Subjectivisten: “raw, spontaneous and extremely varied”
WoNo Magazine: “not just special, also impressive”
Keys and Chords: “unconventional and timeless”
Mpodia: “wonderfully varied with excellent songs”
Proglog Afterglow: “an intriguing and special album”
N91° is here. The new LOGOUT album is now available for streaming on all platforms.
The album is also available on vinyl in our Bandcamp store and in limited stores in Athens, Amsterdam and Utrecht: Syd Records, Homcore, Synthesizers & Vinyl in Athens (GR), Velvet Music in Amsterdam and Koffie Leute in Utrecht.
Athens Voice (official) premiered the album last Wednesday, while Here Comes The Flood kicked off album reviews yesterday, naming the album “a true desert island disc, with no set rules, making it impossible to pigeonhole”.
The album will be presented live in a series of forthcoming concerts in Utrecht 12 & 18 of May, Any Other + Logout | EKKO in Brewpub de Kromme Haring and Logout – Instore at Koffie Leute and in De Ruimte on the 9th of June, with a date for Athens currently being confirmed.
N91° is the story of a desert island outcast waking up on a sandy beach, without any recollection of the past. Gradually he starts remembering what brought him there, by the little things he ﬁnds on his torn clothes: a plane ticket, a handwritten note saying “love me like there’s no tomorrow”, a part of cloth from a kite. A motionless woman is lying close to him on the sandy beach. Logic and time unwind, as the memory of the accident returns. In reality or in a dream, the woman awakes and the two of them sail in wild waters beyond the 90 latitude parallels of the map.
This story is composed through the accumulation of songs written between 2007 and 2016. The songs were recorded and mixed between 2016 and 2018. All instruments were played or programmed by LOGOUT, with additional vocals on ‘Bayorsai’ by Nalyssa Green, Zoe Lianou and Themis Tsitsos. The album was mastered at Sweetspot Productions in Athens, GR in early 2018 by Dimitris Papadimitriou. The album artwork as well as pre-release digital art videos for “Pesssoan Odyssey”, “Love Me”, “Bayorsai” and “When It Was Not Too Late” were designed by metaphorms.
Weehoo! Very happy to announce that we’ll be re-releasing Toby Goodshank‘s untitled album from 2009 on (yellow) vinyl for the first time!
Samsara by The World of Dust is out today! Listen here:
Louder Than War: “What is notable is the quality of the lyrics on this release, and how they dovetail with the musical score”
Timpaan Muziek: “A beautiful, sober and dark album for the late hours”
Here Comes The Flood: “Fans of serious and dreamy lo-fi folk will love it”
Music Won’t Save You: “With Samsara, The World of Dust opened up new avenues for ‘bedroom’ music”
WoNoBloG: “In the calmness, The World of Dust finds a pop feel that is rather infectuous”
Ingeplugd: “An album with a lot to discover”
The Next Gig: “The voice of Breuer has a hypnotic quality, and the instrumental collaboration between Tobias and Breuer is solid as a rock”
De Subjectivisten: “A strong and captivating album full of sadness”
3voor12/Utrecht: “A beautiful ride”
We’re very excited to present the second single lifted from Samsara, the fifth album by Dutch slowcore dream-pop artist The World of Dust. The single is accompanied by a wonderfully playful music video featuring 157 action figures from the late ’80s & early ’90s. Check out the video below and stream the song here.
The album will see official release on the 1st of March 2019 with pre-orders available now in our store.
