New single Petali Caduti by Moonchy & Tobias

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:

LOGOUT – Παράθυρα (new single from forthcoming album ΕΔΩ/ΕΚΕΙ)

We proudly present the new single by Amsterdam-based Athenian songwriter and producer LOGOUT! Παράθυρα is the first taste of the forthcoming album ΕΔΩ/ΕΚΕΙ, to be released on October 16, 2020. 

ΕΔΩ/ΕΚΕΙ is completely written in LOGOUT’s native language, Greek. Παράθυρα (Windows) promises a more nostalgic, acoustic approach, without losing LOGOUT’s ability to write catchy folk melodies and experiment with sound. The 12″ LP will be released on October 16 by Tiny Room Records in collaboration with B-otherSide Records.

Stream, save and playlist the single here on Spotify.

Moonchy & Tobias – Sericum

New fall, new Moonchy & Tobias! Proudly brought to you by Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal.

‘Moonchy & Tobias III’ is the third collaborative album of vocalist Pat Moonchy (Sothiac) and multi-instrumentalist/producer Todd Tobias (GBV, Robert Pollard). It has become an album shrouded in nighttime darkness, with eerie soundscapes and lyrics in Latin.

Listen to first single Sericum now on YouTube. Pre-orders of the CD will be up in a few weeks too. The album will be released October 30th, 2020.

Combo Qazam’s JamKazam Sessions 2020

Combo Qazam released their album Flight Music a few weeks ago. All scheduled shows were cancelled and the band is still not rehearsing together in one room, due to health issues versus corona.

However, they came across an online music platform called JamKazam (we are not making this up), where it is possible to make music online without latency, and record this.

For this session, they play stripped down, laidback versions of San Remi, Panama and Partial Sun – all songs from the debut LP still available in our webshop.

New addition to the roster: Geri van Essen

Happy announcement: we welcome Geri van Essen to the Tiny Room family! This London-based Dutch songwriter makes amazing, timeless folk songs that appeal to the imagination. We are currently working together on her new album, that will come out on Tiny Room Records later this year. Now, to tickle the hype and let the announcement not be a hollow one, we present to you first single 23/32!

23/32 was written in one sitting, hummed into Van Essens phone in the staircase of her office, late summer 2019. It’s mostly a general observation of people struggling to feel content, playing with the notion of past and future from different perspectives.

Combo Qazam – Logorrhea

The new video by Combo Qazam has been premiered on Here Comes The Flood. Watch it here!

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:

Combo Qazam’s new single Owls out now

Combo Qazam Owls single cover

Combo Qazam‘s second single Owls is a fast-paced race through the concrete jungle of Western life. Shattered dreams are lying on the pavement, while you’re being laughed at by wise creatures – which might be the owls, or the clownlike guitars in the chorus. The song shows no mercy and no way back, just the possibility to keep up with the rhythm section and hope for the best. And the best is probably just to try to keep standing.

Owls is out now on all streaming platforms, like Spotify and Apple Music. More importantly, you can watch the video made by the band’s bass player Ab al Tamimi which just premiered at The Daily Indie: https://www.thedailyindie.nl/in-premiere-laat-alles-vallen-en-probeer-het-ritme-bij-te-houden-van-owls-de-nieuwe-single-van-combo-qazam/

Debut album Flight Music will be released on May 20, 2020.

Microplaza offers online release show

Microplaza will perform their new mini-album ‘We’ll Never Fit In This Poem Together’ this Saturday, 15:00, on the Tiny Room Records Facebook timeline. This semi-live quarantine video is the substitute to the live show that was originally planned in Dig It! Recordstore, Utrecht. Since meeting physically is not possible at the moment, we do what we can. So we offer this specially prepared ‘semi-live’ performance with live versions of the songs on the record, recorded remotely.

Stay at home, stay healthy. Watch and celebrate this 10-minute performance with us, and afterwards have a drink and talk in a Zoom session! After that, the remaining records (limited edition of 30 7″ records) will be for sale in the Tiny Room webshop

Microplaza – Through The Fabric (official video)

Watch the new video by indie pop duo Microplaza for single Through The Fabric, the first sign of life of their new 7″ EP We’ll Never Fit In This Poem Together, out April 11 (limited edition of 30) on Tiny Room Records.

We’ll Never Fit In This Poem Together is the follow-up to Microplaza’s self-titled debut, which was praised for its combination of accessibility and alienation. The duo returns with six flawless indie pop miniatures: more consistent, darker and more intense than the debut, but just as inventive and surprising.
