Echopark drops new single “End” – Announces new album

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!

OUT NOW! Dizzyride

 The night tale of a saxophone intertwines with layers of synths and gets animated almost without rhythm, all while an angelic voice floats between dark and dawn lost among reverbs and lost into the wind blowing from the sea: it’s from this grey area that it all squares off perfectly! Soundtrack, the opener for Dizzyride‘s eponymous debut states “No such thing as homeless in nowhere land”: it’s a feeling we won’t be able to forget for the rest of the album – the certainty that anywhere we are and anywhere we’ll be, love will cross any boundaries and will always be stronger than solitude, uncertainties, and time. “Every moment will be what it should be / We exist in ways beyond our control / Every moment we shared has been mystical” as sung in Young You, could be an ascetic dazed predicament, and instead it is the frank and overwhelming instant that captures one of those precious and rare flashes of absolute lucidity, where the simple wonder of finding themselves alive aligns and equates all we have always known and chosen to believe. It’s amazing to be able to witnessing such a majestic thing and transfer it to music and lyrics – “Going back to the one I adore / Shining bright like a star / He is near when I am far” (Candy Lullaby). Dizzyride’s sound re-invents and summarizes influences that take from minimalistic-pop, psychedelia, afro-beat, disco, electronic lo-fi and soul music in ten delicate songs that can’t find similarities among contemporaries. Once every now and then, music introduces itself with a pulsing vibrancy that can move us. Dizzyride are Nicola Donà (The Calorifer Is Very Hot! / Horrible Present) and Montreal born Zoë Kiefl, couple in art and in life: they live, rise their daughter, compose and record in Brooklyn. This is their first album, available digitally from every platform and on a limited edition 12″ vinyl from our stores.

 Il racconto notturno di un sassofono si intreccia a luminosi tappeti di synth, animandosi quasi senza ritmo, mentre una voce angelica fluttua, si immerge e riaffiora, tra il buio e l’alba, persa tra riverberi e vento che soffia dal mare: dal chiaroscuro, tutto si accende in un’inquadratura perfetta. “No such thing as homeless in nowhere land”, proclama Soundtrack, la canzone che apre l’eponimo album d’esordio dei Dizzyride. È una sensazione che non ci scrolleremo più di dosso per tutta la durata del disco: la certezza che, ovunque staremo andando, l’amore conterà più di muri e confini, sarà sempre più forte della solitudine, delle nostre incertezze di un’ora, e anche del tempo che ci passa addosso. “Supersonic, amour fou”, ripete Jungle Mix. “Every moment will be what it should be / We exist in ways beyond our control / Every moment we shared has been mystical” (da Young You): potrebbe sembrare il comizio ebbro di un asceta in stato confusionale, e invece è la schietta e travolgente istantanea che cattura uno di quei preziosi e rari lampi di assoluta lucidità, in cui il semplice stupore di ritrovarsi a vivere allinea e fa coincidere tutto quello che abbiamo sempre saputo e scelto in fondo ai nostri pensieri. È straordinario osservare da tanto vicino un fenomeno così maestoso, poterlo sfiorare in forma di canzoni e di parole d’amore. “Going back to the one I adore / Shining bright like a star / He is near when I am far” (Candy Lullaby). Il suono dei Dizzyride trasforma e distilla influenze di pop minimalista, tradizione psichedelica, disco afro- beat, elettronica lo-fi e soul music in dieci delicate composizioni che esulano dalle affinità con altri nomi contemporanei. Una volta tanto, la musica si presenta a noi con una verità palpitante, che fa quasi commuovere. I Dizzyride sono Nicola Donà (The Calorifer Is Very Hot! / Horrible Present) e Zoë Kiefl, cantautrice originaria di Montreal. Coppia nell’arte e nella vita dal 2014, risiedono a Brooklyn, dove hanno registrato due EP. Questo è il loro primo album disponibile in digitale su tutte le piatteforme e su vinile 12″ in tiratura limitata sui nostri store.

debuting WWNB3 live video sessions

Three songs each, is the loose rule for the project, all other artistic decisions are in the bands’ own hands. The idea starts from the love we have for our bands and their fans, and the sometimes missing link of an intimate way to experience the music in a personally relatable live setting. So we decided to create, or take advantage, of an already intimate setting and bring it to you via our new “WWNB3”, a series of live videos produced together with the bands and able to express the raw character of who’s behind the music without the barrier of a package or an unfortunate PA at a random venue.

Our first series features the latest addition to the WWNBB’s family, BIRTHH, whose session was filmed shortly after the ending of the recordings for their album “Born in the Woods”, but before their live debut at SXSW in Austin, TX. It is a unique moment for the band as it pictures the very beginning stages of their career while giving a real sense of the direction BIRTHH has for the future. Enjoy the show!
