Toby Goodshank – untitled (reissue)

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!

Screenshot from Toby Goodshank's myspace page.
 
To celebrate this 10-year-flashback, we recreated a Myspace page with all the info: the album announcement, tour dates, and even a brand new video with bathroom smart hacks for Track 1! 
 
Thank you Tiny Room intern Luca Dattisi for the video and webpage, you’re amazing! And of course to our German partners in crime and initiators in this, Lousy Moon Records!

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!

Taïfun / Holden Goldmund – Split 12″

This should have been up earlier, but we have been lost in the world of Le Guess Who? this weekend, great as ever. Anyway, there is a new record coming out on Dec 7th on Tiny Room Records that you should know about!
 
It’s a split 12″ (100 copies made) of Belgian indie rock band Taïfun and Utrecht-based power trio Holden Goldmund. 2 sides, 2 bands, 2 countries, 8 songs, all great. We release it in the Netherlands, Honest House is covering Belgium and Stereo Dasein takes care of Germany.
 
Pre-orders and one song by each band are up here:
