Ykymr : City [LBN041]

“A city that wakes up.
The sun illuminating the last leaves of thirsty trees.
The dark has forgotten a book of unresolved questions.
Read, write, listen, speak and love … as long as you can.”

Feminine : Lorelei [LBN037]

Lorelei is the debut album from duo Feminine (Giampiero Riggio and Francesco Cipriano).
A wave manifesto against the deeply rooted reverence for the logic of genres.
Lorelei develops on two complementary levels: one archaic and passionate,
troubled by the many contradictions of a land like Sicily and the other,
accurate and bewitching, is a prelude to teutonic Stuttgart.
A countless number of bytes which they shared and exchanged remotely.
This work is romantic and brave at the same time, constantly immersed into a very deep atmosphere, never trite,
fooled by the certainty that there is no dream which cannot be described.”

Samurau : Things left unsaid [LBN032]

Things Left Unsaid is not only the testimony of a precise moment, but rather the result of a long research, composition and improvisation done by the band: there’s a common area where musical elements from diametrically opposed musical worlds such as jazz and contemporary music, rock and blues coexist without forgetting the melodic vocation in each composition.

Samurau: the band (Michele Sanna – guitars; Matteo Muntoni â el.bass; Alessandro Garau- drums) after a long period of mutual courtship and knowledge among the members, was officially founded in 2014: the aim is to satisfy the need to blend in total freedom, sounds, music, different styles through their own compositions.”

Jan Grünfeld : Music for plants [LBN031] [hpcd109]

“The tracks of Music for plants are based on a live improvisation with electric guitar and a looping machine. Jan Grünfeld has recorded the music in the summer of 2014 on a huge balcony of an old villa in Bad Muskau, right at the German-Polish border – a very arcadian place!
The music is free, like a suntrap. The plants grow better with Jan Grünfeld’s music!
But not turn up too loud! And do not forget to water!”

Various Artists : La bèl pop (fifth anniversary compilation) [LBN030]

“This year La bèl will turn 5 years old and we wanted to celebrate its birthday by publishing a La bèl compilation with all the artists that collaborated with us during these years. The idea is to ask each one of their for a ‘pop’ track, leaving complete freedom to their personal interpretation of this word. We think this would be a nice idea, since hardly any of their works within the ‘pop’ scene. La bèl pop (fifth anniversary compilation) is the final outcome of this experiment.

This compilation is published to coincide with the first Netlabel Day.”

Plusplus : Psycho [LBN026]

Psycho is the third and final installment in the ‘Evils trilogy’ from Adam Radmall aka Plusplus consisting of eight new tracks that continue on a similar theme to the two previously acclaimed albums ‘Evils’ (2010) and ‘Game Over’ (2012). Compared with the first two Plusplus albums, Psycho is more a collaboration with Bryan Styles (Plantman) and Rob Scillitoe contributing on drums and double bass respectively. Producer John Hannon also contributed significantly. The result is much more of an organic sound that reveals another side of the plusplus yet retains a similar mix of brooding atmospheres and circadian rhythms punctuated by playful folk melodies evident on previous work.”
