This is going to be something special. On June 25th, we are hosting a mesmerizing folk evening in the Oude Kerk Charlois in Rotterdam-Zuid. The choral alt-pop of Ilsha will be preceded by the serene, meandering tones of The World of Dust. These beautiful church shows will heal you of all mental wounds.
Instrumentals, the new EP by LOGOUT is out today! Instrumentals finds LOGOUT returning to the classical guitar, the instrument with which he started his musical training as a kid. While his previous four albums have been focused to songwriting, this is his first release without lyrics. It explores musical themes written in the span of more than 20 years, with the resulting 7 tracks ending up somewhere between classical & indie folk genres.
On all the tracks LOGOUT is supported by the beautiful violins of Kalliopi Mitropoulou, a classical violinist who also performs in multiple classical and indie projects in Athens and London. The limited 20-copy vinyl release is sold out, but it’s still available digitally on our Bandcamp. A CD version is available via SoundInSilence Records. Listen here:

Release announcement! LOGOUT will release his new EP Instrumentals in June. It will consist of, guess what, new instrumentals. All the tracks feature beautiful violin contributions by Kalliopi Mitropoulou. It’s a neo-classical little gem, this record. Tiny Room Records releases the limited edition 10″ (20 copies). You can find the first two singles on Spotify. Listen to Fire here:
We are finally hosting shows again! On the last day of this month you can see Tiny Room acts Geri van Essen and Microplaza both celebrating their 2021 releases on a stage in Utrecht: Vechtclub XL. Also playing is SOON, who are releasing their debut album on Subroutine that week. From the timeless altfolk of Geri van Essen, to the playful indie pop of duo Microplaza, to the spacey kraut noise of SOON: this evening has it all. It’s on a Monday, so there’s nothing else to do anyway. And you are probably longing for live music as much as we are. See you there!
The new single & video by Italian/USA experimental duo Moonchy & Tobias is out now! Potio Medicata leans into an insistent Middle-Eastern flavored ostinato, melodically infused and mesmerizing. It follows more psychedelic & rhythmic paths than you could find on the previous M&T albums, much like the rest of the new album Golem.
Golem will be released on CD by Tiny Room Records on March 25, 2022. Publishing by Hidden Shoal.
