And then there was music! Our latest signing LOGOUT releases his first single/video of the new album N91° (scheduled late 2018, early 2019). The Daily Indie was so kind to premiere Pessoan Odyssey. In this song and video, the Amsterdam based Greek songwriter explores the difference between distance and stagnation. Cool stuff!
The World of Dust just premiered a new video for an old song called Gospel. We reissued the CD, because it has been sold out for a long time. Watch the video on 3voor12/Utrecht’s website here: https://bit.ly/2zV8i5v

A Room to Store Happiness, the 2nd album by Queen of the Meadow, is out today. The album is getting rave reviews, and that’s because it is simply astonishing. Helen and Julien really outdid themselves on this one, creating layers and layers of intense, pastoral beauty.
Listen, feel, buy:
In De Ban Van: “the album is paved with perfect harmonies”
WoNo Magazine: “beauty is the right word here”
De Subjectivisten: “you can dream away or come to your senses with this album, often with a lot of goose bumps”
Here Comes The Flood: “A Room To Store Happiness shows no signs of the ‘difficult second album’ jinx”
Proglog Afterglow: “an impressive musical photo”
Brace yourself when entering the disorienting world of Moonchy & Tobias, where churning rock textures created by Todd Tobias are the landscape within which vocalist Pat Moonchy runs riot, warping her voice into every recess and shape available. Skirting the boundary between fairytale and nightmare, the angular architecture of the music is softened and stretched at every juncture. Whether the pounding bass of ‘Juu Ichi’, the bubbling submarine atmospheres of ‘Vertigo Trail’, or the percussion and fuzz carnival of single ‘Une Saison En Enfer’, Moonchy and Tobias create a transformative musical experience in which giddy tangents abound.
Moonchy & Tobias pairs Italian vocalist Pat Moonchy with American instrumentalist Todd Tobias. Moonchy is one-half of the experimental band Sothiac, in duos alongside trombonist Angelo Contini and jazz drummer Lino Liguori, in the Tai-No Orchestra, and with German krautrock pioneers Faust. Ohio native Tobias is a long-time collaborator with Robert Pollard (Guided by Voices), and provided the musical backing to Pollard’s vocals in the freak-rock trio Circus Devils. Tobias has also released a series of themed instrumental albums under his own name.
We are proud to present this electrifying collaboration, out November 2nd on Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal. Pre-order the CD now on our Bandcamp page. You can stream a few songs of the album too:

The new video and single by Queen of the Meadow is called Empty Room. Watch the exclusive clip premiere at In De Ban Van:
The video is about Helen overcoming her fear of dancing, by working together with a professional dancer who she admires. She learned to dance on one day, and they shot the video the next day. In the choreography, that came to Helen during a nightly vision and features two opposite women in a sort of schizophrenic setting, you see Helen opening up and gaining self-confidence. The two dancers show the world what beautiful art you can create in a very short time, when you’re determined to try and take chances. Bravo!
Empty Room is the 2nd single of A Room To Store Happiness, the CD/LP that will be released on Tiny Room Records (NL) and Only Lovers Records (FR) on October 5, 2018. Pre-orders here:
Expect some hauntingly beautiful ambient sounds and a made up language sung with a gorgeous, low female voice. Not all the adjectives we can come up with, but all you’re gonna get at the moment. Because you can read adjectives all day and stare at your newsfeed, or you can give this a spin and dream awaaaaay.
Only got a handful of copies left in our Bandcamp store. Get ’em!
Tiny Room Records presents Amialluma: a hypnotic 10-track collaboration between American musician Todd Tobias and English vocalist Chloë March. Dwelling in a mysterious hinterland somewhere between Cocteau Twins’ seminal Victorialand and The Caretaker’s Persistent Repetition of Phrases, Amialluma dances between the earthly and heavenly. Chloë March’s celestial voice shines a light through Todd Tobias’s dark, fantastical soundscapes, resulting in a sublime, uncanny experience that enraptures and unsettles in equal measure.
Through a process of improvisation sparked by the emotive power of Tobias’s music, March developed a lyrical world of word-invention sung into archaic lullabies and tales. The lyrics centre around a child’s journey from the safety of its mother’s arms through an ancient, shadowy world. Overcoming fear and meeting with otherworldly guides, the child finds independence and reveals a deep connection with nature.
Amialluma will be released on CD by Tiny Room Records, on September 4, 2018. Publishing through Hidden Shoal. Listen to the first single Lallulow here:
