We are proud to present Read The Room, the new Microplaza 7″. Once again packed with little indie pop miniatures! They keep expanding their weird tiny universe with new hits the length of a sigh. As usual only 30 copies were made, which makes it a really cool collector’s item. Pre-orders are up now, don’t sleep on it! Read The Room will be released on Tiny Room Records on November 12th. Preorder: https://tinyroomrecords.bandcamp.com/album/read-the-room
The 12″ mini-album comes with beautiful handmade artwork (three different front covers to choose from, a pencil drawing). And it also sounds VERY GOOD, this 45rpm black vinyl record. Very spacious and detailed, doing justice to the 100+ layers on each song. Get it now, only 100 made!
We are proud to announce the release of True Sound, the new album by Dutch experimental folk songwriter The World of Dust. True Sound will be released on September 10th by Tiny Room Records, Stereo Dasein and Hidden Shoal, on CD and digital formats. Pre-order True Sound now on Bandcamp (with a small, free, unique collage with every order):
Like the highly acclaimed predecessor Samsara from 2019, True Sound is once again a collaboration between vocalist Stefan Breuer and musician Todd Tobias (Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, Circus Devils). This time, the narrative of the album follows the life and death of Stefan’s grandparents. Musically, it’s slightly more upbeat, but definitely still ‘out there’, floating in the atmosphere, highlighting the magical combination of the duo. Pre-order True Sound now and find out for yourself.
We’re excited to announce the release of ‘Delibo’, the new single from the forthcoming Moonchy & Tobias EP, Venus Mirror. The EP will be out on June 5 through Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal. ‘Delibo’ is also accompanied by a beautiful music video from Pat Moonchy:
Preorder the CD (very limited CD-r version of 20 copies!) through our Bandcamp page:
Venus Mirror is a buoyant follow-up to the brooding, nocturnal atmospheres of the duo’s 2020 release Moonchy & Tobias III, the luminous, soothing Venus Mirror is infused with an almost tropical sway. On ‘Specchio Di Venere’, Tobias’ modulated synth, tuned percussion and acoustic guitar paint a widescreen scene, over which Moonchy’s vocal traces a mesmerizing wordless melody. On the other six tracks, Moonchy sings both in her native Italian and in ancient Latin, her voice soaring and graceful in turns. In the single ‘Delibo,’ the warm major sevenths of jazz are chilled by a shivering wind. ‘Leniter’ brings the EP to a fittingly ambiguous close, setting the listener adrift on see-sawing, reverb-drenched piano lines.
Post-Trash just premiered the first song from Tiny Wine’s debut EP Archer. Check it out on their website or below if you’re into lo-fi tape goodness!
They also wrote some cool words: “It sounds warped and faded, rippling from another time with lo-fi beauty. There’s a backward ambiance to it, with just the voices, sparse guitar, and the simple crack of the rhythm holding it together like homemade glue. It’s a dreamy song that pulls on those themes of nostalgia. The band work a nice buzzing guitar riff and a catchy whistled melody for a bit of texture as things crackle to a close.”
Pre-orders of the vinyl and cassette are up now too, go to our Bandcamp store.
Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal are proud to present ‘Petali Caduti’, the second single from Moonchy & Tobias III, the new album by Moonchy & Tobias. The album sees release on the 30th October 2020. Check out the wonderful accompanying music video by Alice Murace below.
Pre-orders of the CD are up now too in our Bandcamp shop:
Empty shells. Photoshopped audiences. The appearance of importance. Logorrhea deals with the shallow sides of social media today. Embrace the emptiness, lock yourself in the eerie grooves of the song, and stay true to yourself.
You can also preorder the LP Flight Music now on our Bandcamp webshop:
Glad to finally announce this: we are putting out a split 7″ record of The World of Dust with Karl Blau! How amazing is that… The joint effort is called Blue Herons, will come out on June 5, 2020 and both artists contributed with songs about the places they live or lived. There are only 200 copies available. Pre-orders are up now in our Bandcamp store.
Karl’s side of the wax is a cover of Pounding Serfs (an 80s K Records band), which became the theme song for Anacortes, Washington State, USA. The lovely, seaside village of Anacortes was Blau’s home for 25 years, until his recent move to Philadelphia.
In The Life of Gods, Stefan from The World of Dust describes the move his family made four years ago from Hoograven, Utrecht, The Netherlands to the nearby village Bilthoven.
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.
