Combo Qazam’s first single Ions is about the molecular. At the same time, the music flows through the body and keeps us warm. It rumbles mechanically but has humanity in every attack. Combo Qazam is inspired by everything postpunk/kraut/math/noise, life in general, communication, solitude & group communities. The song is about detachment with hope lurking around the corner: it is precisely the digital, massive and global society that offer opportunities to break existing structures and celebrate life together.

In celebration of the upcoming tour in Japan (starting next week already), The World of Dust is releasing a new video and single today! The video is a combination of collages and landscape videos that Stefan Breuer made in Norway & Sweden this summer. The lyrics have been translated to Japanese, so all the new fans over there will also know what he is singing about (which is insecurity, doubts, trust, the usual dismals).

Behold! It’s the first single and title track taken from ‘Atmosfere’, the forthcoming second album by art-rock duo Moonchy & Tobias. The album will see release on the 18th of October 2019 through Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal.
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).
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”
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.
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:
Microplaza’s self-titled debut 7″ came out yesterday. Short, soft & sweet! The release show in Studio Patrick yesterday was a great success. Listen to the beautiful mini-LP on your favorite streaming service, or get one of the last copies in our Bandcamp store. Limited edition of 30 is close to sold out already.
