Last copies for sale

DIY takes time. Watch this video of Leo Meijer folding the sleeve for the Bonnie Prince Billy & Naked Shortsellers split 7″ that we released a few months ago. He did 333 copies like this… (w/ a little help from our friends)

It was sold out, but we unearthed a few copies from our attic stock. There are 10 more copies for sale right now in our Bandcamp store:

The World of Dust new single & album announcement

Samsara, the new album by The World of Dust will be released on March 1, 2019 on CD and LP. First single Blood is out now, listen on Soundcloud:

Samsara is effectively a full-length collaboration between The World of Dust’s Stefan Breuer and Todd Tobias (Guided By Voices, Robert Pollard, Circus Devils). Previously contributing keyboard arrangements for 2015’s World of Dust album Womb Realm, Tobias created all the instrumental backdrops for Samsara’s evocative songs. A shadowy universe of forlorn beauty, this lo-fi bedroom pop experiment is shrouded in elemental imagery and laden with ennui. Intimate and wistful, Samsara mines a similarly rich emotive seam to artists like Mount Eerie, Sparklehorse and Pedro the Lion.

The process for Samsara saw Tobias send Breuer 26 instrumental ideas, from which Breuer chose those which resonated with him most. Over the course of nearly two years, Breuer wrote and refined an especially personal suite of lyrics, reflecting his struggles with his mental health and his experience of becoming a father. The result is World of Dust’s most fully realized and vivid album to date.

This album will be released in The Netherlands by Tiny Room Records, in Belgium by Honest House, in Germany by Stereo Dasein and in Australia by Hidden Shoal (who also do licensing). Later in 2019, MOORWORKS will release Samsara in Japan.

New split 7″ by Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and Naked Shortsellers

This is happening! To top off a brilliant year full of beautiful releases, we end 2018 with a bang. An intimate & sad bang though, ha! Our biggest international release so far…

On December 21st, we’ll release a split 7″ by American indie hero Bonnie Prince Billy and new Utrecht supergroup Naked Shortsellers. Two new songs to celebrate the long-term relationship by highly acclaimed musician Will Oldham and Dutch musician (and Oldham’s webmaster) Leo Meijer. It’s beyond perfect.

This is the cover of the sleeve, a painting made by Rik Berkhout. More info this week!

A Room to Store Happiness is out today!

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:

Reviews
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”

Proglog Afterglow: “an impressive musical photo”

Pre-orders of Moonchy & Tobias are up now!

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:
