Tiny Wine – Leaves premiere on Post-Trash

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.

Moonchy & Tobias III out now on cd / digital!

Today we release Moonchy & Tobias III into the world, the sublime third collaborative album of vocalist Pat Moonchy (Sothiac) and multi-instrumentalist/producer Todd Tobias (GBV, Robert Pollard) under the Moonchy & Tobias banner.

Get the CD now here:

The album is available now on CD and in digital formats via Bandcamp, streaming via Spotify and is available to download or stream at most online stores.

“Musically you have references such as Mi And L’Au, The Caretaker, Cranes, Dead Can Dance and Portishead , although they never quite cover what this pair brings here. In conclusion, you can safely say that you are certainly not dealing with an average combo. What a great, versatile and mesmerizing album!” – De Subjectivisten

LOGOUT – ΕΔΩ/EKEI

Happy release day to ΕΔΩ/EKEI, the new ‘retrofutural masterpiece’ by Greek artist LOGOUT. According to the press, this ‘lovely pop record’ is ‘one of the best psych-pop albums ever released by a Greek artist’. Being sung entirely in his native language Greek, this serves as a gateway to the country’s thriving underground scene. 

The album has one foot in the Netherlands and the other one in the country where LOGOUT was born, and it’s a special listen. Dreamy, layered, lo-fi, psychedelic and as always with great melodies and a melancholy vibe throughout. Definitely one of the best albums we heard this year, so we are thrilled to put it out on our label. 

ΕΔΩ/EKEI is out today on LP and digital via Tiny Room Records in The Netherlands and B-otherSide Records in Greece. Get your copy in our Bandcamp store:

New video for ‘Pioggia e Sale’ by Moonchy & Tobias

The press has been super positive about Atmosfere:

Louder Than War: “It’s one of life’s luxuries to inform others about a record that alters your outlook on life; even if the altered state is fleeting. This latest release by Tiny Room […] is one such. Reader, it’s glorious.”
Here Comes The Flood: “All tracks are invitations to dream and wonder”
De Subjectivisten: “A special and beautiful album, for which comparisons cannot easily be made”
Felt That: “Relish the softness and gentless of this humble soundtrack for every day use”
The Vinyl District: “Atmosfere is just over too damned quickly”

Moonchy & Tobias – Atmosfere out now!

The second album by psychedelic duo Moonchy & Tobias has been released! ‘Atmosfere’ is more, eh, atmospheric, and subdued than the debut album (that was all over the place – in a good way). This is an album you can play at Sunday breakfast, or during Christmas with your parents. Well, if you (and your parents) are into parallel universes and magic fairies, because it’s still not the kind of folk you might be used to. The childlike voice of Pat Moonchy blends together perfectly with Todd Tobias’ soft strumming and fingerpicking. It’s like Múm did an opera of Linda Perhacs’ songs. In Italian. Gotta love it!

Toby Goodshank – “untitled” out now!

Toby Goodshank – “untitled” out today! A must-listen if you like antifolk, The Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis, rap, folk, indie rock, acoustic music, humor, vulgarity, and music in general.

We’re super happy with this weird and awesome slab of vinyl. It was released on CD ten years ago, and a few months ago Lousy Moon Records (from Frankfurt) and Toby asked us if we wanted to co-release it with them. Fuck yeah! We have been superfans of Toby’s music for a long time, so here we are. Cool yellow vinyl, an inlay with new artwork and lyrics, and a short tour coming up (with the release show 22 May in De Kromme Haring in Utrecht).

You can order the vinyl here:

Some cool quotes from the press so far:
De Subjectivisten: “raw, spontaneous and extremely varied”
WoNo Magazine: “not just special, also impressive”
Keys and Chords: “unconventional and timeless”
Mpodia: “wonderfully varied with excellent songs”
Proglog Afterglow: “an intriguing and special album”

Combo Qasam and The DIY Fun Movement

For the latest release by American producer/musician Todd Tobias (Massabu Evening Entertainments), we did something special. A mysterious band is credited on the sleeve of the album, Combo Qasam. This band did not exist. A couple of Lost Bear and Rogue Minor band members then decided to bring this band to life and play the songs from the album.

Todd Tobias also wrote a pamphlet, talking about a DIY Fun Movement: get away from your screens and out of prefab discos, and create your own fun. The music and the pamphlet did create a special DIY Fun vibe on the three shows Combo Qasam played, in OCCII (Amsterdam), Worm (Rotterdam) and Studio Patrick (Utrecht). On the last night (the most successful expression of DIY Fun), there was a reviewer of 3voor12/Utrecht who wrote a very thoughtful piece with some beautiful photos.

We also shot video material of the show. Get a sense of what was going on here:
