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.”

Cromattista : Paraquaria [none]

Cromattista es un trío compuesto por Emiliana Arias en batería y percusión, Jorge Capriotti en guitarras y órgano, y Maximiliano Falcone en guitarra, teclados y secuenciadores.

El nombre Paraquaria está inspirado por la lectura del libro ‘Hacia allá y para acá’, del misionero jesuita Florián Paucke. Esta denominación es la que recibió la región que comprendía parte de Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay y Brasil durante las misiones jesuitas del siglo XVI.

Toda la música fue compuesta, interpretada y grabada por Cromattista durante sesiones en el estudio móvil Cataplasma desde fines de 2014 hasta agosto de 2016.”

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.”

Des Turner : Take One [ROR046]

“ROR is very happy to release the debut album of Singer/Songwriter, Des Turner.

Label owner Owen Ni, and Des have known each other for a very long time. But only last year did they decide to collaborate on a song together. The collab was so organic that Owen decided to offer Des with an opportunity to record a full album of her own at ROR HQ (aka NI LAB).

And that was how Take One came to be.

[Disclaimer: Lo-Fi album = Lo-Fi recording, so keep in mind this while listening to the music.. Also, lots of fun was had during this 6 hour recording session, so some jokes found their way into songs. Enjoy.]”

Mercado De Peixe : Água Da Faca [foot248]

“Here comes a new (the first for us) album by a Brazilian band Mercado De Peixe. In this new work, the band approaches the folk culture of the countryside of São Paulo to the dancefloors and to the global ghettos. Digital cumbia, africanism, garage rock, psychedelic rhythms, eletropical and post-bossa nova are some of the elements present in the eighth disc of Mercado de Peixe. The sextet is pioneer in merging pop and folk culture in São Paulo’s countryside. They use typical instruments like the ten strings guitar (viola caipira), accordion and their lyrics are inspired by ‘urban tales’ from Bauru, the town where the band was created. Besides the musical references, there’s also connections with nature. It is a result of a series of immersions carried out the band in Brazilian Cerrado landscape. Isolated from civilization, the band composed and made the arrangements for all of the songs. The album has guest participation of the singer and guitarist Saulo Duarte (winner of Prêmio da Música Brasileira 2015), percussionist Rômulo Nardes (from Bixiga 70 band), the singers Tika and Kika, percussionist Junião and multi-instrumentalist Pipo Pegoraro, who also mixed the work. Água da Faca was recorded with the support of the Government of São Paulo, by the cultural programme Proac.”
