Halfalib just dropped the new single Love Letter to Science, off of the band’s debut Malamocco, set for release on February 24th and available for pre-order on a limited edition (100 copies) milky clear 12″ vinyl.
Here’s how the always accurate Impose Magazine describes it: “Love Letter To Science” exhibits what could be the soundtrack to future episodes of “Nova” where accumulated arrays of synths & murmuring electronic instruments lead the way to Halfalib’s big build up of expression that pushes for a human connection beyond the binary sequences & algorithmic equations.
London based Echopark fills the gap between his debut Trees and the sophomore Ties with the stunning single End; a jaw-dropping hymn that starts out precise to an almost methodic degree, explodes in an epic chorus and evolves into a sonic mash of a finale. End anticipates Echopark’s second album Ties, out on March 10, released digitally and on a limited edition transparent blue vinyl that you can pre-order from our European and North American stores while listening to the song!
Halfalib is somewhat a mysterious presence who is unveiling little by little his musical existence. So far we know they’ll be at SXSW 2017 in Austin next March, and we can hear the band’s first single Arythmie Du Soleil, “a perfectly mellow single” described by For the Rabbits as “light jazzy percussion, unnerving electronics and warm, woozy saxophones [that] seem to wash in and out of earshot, as the vocal and the omnipresent piano, pick out a wistful melody. There’s a touch of Lionlimb or Chris Cohen in this articulate take on beautiful hazy-pop music.” We heard that the debut album, Malamocco, will be out on February 24th, and now we know as well that the record will be released on a very limited edition of 100 copies pressed on milky clear transparent vinyl! And guess what? Those 100 copies are now available for pre-order from our European and US bandcamp stores. I foresee a sell-out in 5…4…
With a stunning new video featuring Dizzyride‘s many faces through Zoë Kiefl capturing acting, the Brooklyn based duo tickles our appetite for more, which is a good reason why it’s the perfect time to pre-order the limited edition 12″ vinyl of the band’s self titled debut album out in January. The video filmed by Canadian director Angus Borsos and produced by Helium Castle was premiered via NOWNESS and features a chameleonic Kiefl who leaves us wondering and pushes us to re-play again and again, to get more details and get transported by the melody of the song. Young You is the second single anticipating the release of the full length due out on January 20, 2017. The album is being pressed on a limited edition 12″ vinyl, and you can make sure to get your copy here:

Norway’s Ragnhild Hogstad Jordahl is known to most as Soda Fountain Rag, and we are happy to announce that she is back with a beautifully catchy and yet touching album titled Extra Life, out this April via WWNBB. Ragnhild’s newest work (the first since Reel Around Me) was partly written in Bergen and in part scrapped while on tour during the last five years, then recorded by Alessandro Paderno and Fabio Benni (Le Man Avec Les Lunettes) at Red Carpet Studio (Italy) in 2015/2016. Extra Life is a collection of stills from Ragnhild’s life, ranging from the highest high to the lowest low. Exrta Life comes in a beautiful artwork by Silja Haddal Mork, and you can preorder now this very limited edition (only 100 copies!) on 12″ vinyl or digital download, directly from our stores.
