Various Artists : Braaahhlitz Compilation [aaahh016]

“Take a look at it, have a listen: We are proud to present you Braaahhlitz #1, the second compilation in our aaahhchestra series. In 2012 we met in the small village of Bralitz (near Berlin) for a weeklong recording session. Members of e.g. Keyboard Rebel and ne:o plus Nicolas Falcon of Falcon and the Featherweights fame did their best to recreate the vibe of our excursion to Denmark in 2011.

Even more than in Denmark this feels like a group effort with a more unified sound. Still, Braaahhlitz #1 is a journey through various genre influences, like folk, balkan pop and even hip hop – partly serious, partly humourous.

Eight songs, including flutes, trumpets, extensive clapping and voices make Braaahhlitz #1 the ideal gift for your spouse, auntie or that guy. If you order now, we will additionally send you the set of steak knives and the garden claw free of charge. Braaahhlitz #1 has been awarded with the aaahh seal of approval for quality recordings. But kidding aside, as usual this release will be available as free download. Payment is optional.

All this would not have been possible without the support of our host Ralf, the production skills of Milan Greulich (Rokotak, ne:o) and – of course + especially – this would not have been possible without you, dear aaahh records supporter. We hope that you will be as thoroughly happy with this new release as we are.”

Mark Ge : Your Blues Are Rough [NS044]

Mark Ge is a musician and writer from the North-Eastern United States. His first EP includes a collection of lo-fi bedroom recordings and one studio recording. Most of Your Blues Are Rough is just Mark Ge singing and playing guitar. The lo-fi quality really brings the listener and these tracks to a more intimate setting. ‘Brother’ and ‘The Other Side’ share a similar aural joy found in early tape recordings from the Mountain Goats. ‘Stephanie’ on the other hand is eerily similar to Casiotone For The Painfully Alone with drum machine and simple synth melodies. ‘The Road’, the only studio recording on this release, sees a more polished sound and additional instrumentation from Mark. Additional production on tracks 1-3,5-6 by Tim Dwyer.”
