Bhava reissue released today on CD

Bhava voorkant

Bhava, the debut album by The World of Dust (Stefan Breuer), was released on Snowstar Records as a book + cd in 2013. The beautiful 44-page collage book, with a cd containing 13 tracks of ‘lo-fi progrock’, quickly sold out. With this new cd reissue (a collaboration between Snowstar Records and Tiny Room Records), the music is finally available again. Essential for all adventurous music lovers out there.

Buy/download here: tinyroomrecords.bandcamp.com/album/bhava.

On the album you find a mixture of bedroom pop, lo-fi folk, lush orchestrations, weird brass experiments, short cosmic space songs, and one epic 13-minute track about the history of the universe. The album contains guest appearances by Thijs Kuijken (I Am Oak), Aino Vehmasto (The Secret Love Parade) and Olivier Perez (Garciaphone). For fans of Robert Wyatt, Sparklehorse and Mount Eerie. Bhava means rebirth, and marked a new beginning for Stefan Breuer in his solo ventures, combining soothing acoustic sounds with esoteric visuals.

Sven Agaath_Vera

The return of
Sven Agaath! Listen to Close Encounters from the new album End of Latin now. We are very pleased to release this massive sci-fi grunge record on cassette/digital on June 27th.

Sven Agaath remains one of the weirdest bands of the bunch, with shoegaze and grunge mixed (this time) with sci-fi sounds and industrial dancehall beats. Their debut album Simple Field Calculator was the first release on Tiny Room back in 2014 and received a lot of good press. This new record is recorded and mixed by Floyd Atema at the analogue Katzwijm Studio in Voorhout.

Golden Moon pre-orders

Golden Moon, the new album by The World Of Dust, will be out May 19th on Tiny Room Records. Listen to the first track now and pre-order here:

Golden Moon was recorded with primitive recording techniques, creating a vibe similar to the Mountain Goats, Cass McCombs, Guided By Voices and Grandaddy, only a lot more varied. It sounds like a twisted, diverse, psychedelic lo-fi radio station. All songs were spontaneously recorded in the process of writing. A 44-page full colour collage book with the same title will be released on the same day. Golden Moon is a document of an artistic peak where joy, experiment and playfulness are preferred over ambitious aspirations.

Pre-order Moon Moon Moon’s new album ‘Help! Help!’ now

Help! Help! fb aankondiging

We welcome Moon Moon Moon to the Tiny Room family! Shimmering & gritty indie pop, straight from a bedroom in Heerhugowaard.

2016 in releases

15492174_1152123401551390_5107455419252521652_nIn 2016 we released five amazing records. It all started off on the 1st of January with the new, weird Lost Bear single Craaash! b/w Captain Salt. The electronic pop/new wave song marked a departure from their previous indie rock sound. They also made a really cool video for it, starring Eline Karstens, Yorke Mulder-Bhangoo and a lot of pink cakes:

In May we released the long forgotten masterpiece by Master Solo, a singer/songwriter extraordinaire from Norwich, UK. He finished this album 8 years ago, but it was never released. He came over to Utrecht for a one-off release show, where Lost Bear played as his backing band. It was a magical show. We still have some cassettes left.

Shortly after that, the debut album Aligned With Juniper by Queen of the Meadow was released. Helen Ferguson & Julien Pras recorded this very special folk album in Bordeaux. These were the first songs Helen ever wrote.

This was our statement at the time: Really, the whole record makes us smile and cry at the same time. It’s a heartbreaking, beautiful, timeless indie pop/folk album. It changed our life, and our perspective on music. We think that this is an album that should be heard. That’s why we release it, that’s why we think you should give it a listen too. There is no point in releasing okay-ish albums, and this one is right up there in our favorite-albums-ever section. You might think we’re exaggerating, but it’s the damn truth. Or at least our truth.

Here Comes The Flood put the album in their top 20 of 2016.

After the summer, lo-fi indie rockers Lost Bear made their real comeback with Inside The Dragon, a massive double album containing 30 songs and over 70 minutes of music. Received well by press and public, they finally managed to capture their enthusiasm, creativity, sadness, and alcoholism in their recordings. A special document.

And Theo Ploeg put it in his top 20 of 2016.

14188120_10154518743285799_7887391095159654345_oTo top off a great year (for Tiny Room, not in general), Todd Tobias released his new album Gila Man. A psychedelic sci-fi western, for the first time with (beautiful) vocals by Chloë March. We know Todd Tobias is serving a really small niche market, but we are – as his biggest fans – extremely proud to be a part of that. Anyone who likes Popol Vuh, American Analog Set, The Residents and Ennio Morricone should give this record a listen. As long as Todd keeps making these awesome, haunting records, we keep releasing them.

Thank you for listening, see you in 2017!

Release show Inside The Dragon

05-LostBear-LostBearReleaseParty.jpgThe release show of Inside The Dragon (the new double LP by Lost Bear) in dB’s, Utrecht was a great success! An uplifting show by lo-fi all-female pop group Cora Kemperman & De Schuurmachines, quiet & gloomy ditties by The Avonden and loud and harsh anthems by Baby Galaxy. Lost Bear was focussed, energetic, absurd and dynamic. In between bands the great Johan Gijsen was spinning the CDs (how 90s can you get?). Lots of love, beer, and great people. 3voor12/Utrecht was there as well, they wrote a piece and shot some nice pictures. Read it here.
