“As per tradition, six tunes that missed becoming part of past full-length records – collected into an ep, mega-ecclectic as always. Beauty, dirt, melody, chaos, casio beats, screaming, a ballad, grunge riffs, casio-disco, tribal pounding.”
“As per yearly tradition, Jan presents an ep with material that did not fit the full-length album from previous year, in this case ‘Jan Pierwszy Starszy’. As with every JS e.p. there are no rules and the diversity of genres is breathtaking. Here we have casio-retro-wave, guitar post rock, noisy guitars overlaying, joyful turkish zurna-pop with broken time signature and an anthem of the priviledged man with a sturdy beat!”
“In December 2015 the commonest comember of Projekt Luty, Stach, visited the Nad Garażem Studio fresh from the British Isles for a joyful recording session. As always the project’s aim is to combine the knowledge and abilities of a person with (some) musical abilities, and the enthusiasm and fresh approach of a person unblemished with musical-theoretical background. And as always, at the crossroads we have an unimitable, undefineable organized chaos galloping through psychedelia, krautrock, punk, post-punk, even ambient and grunge, while keeping its lo-fi and homemade charm.”
“The Nanaki session sees Mikie, guitarist of manx alt-rockers Postcode, revisiting material from the early days of the band, in fact it is the setlist from their first gigs. Mainly consisting of tracks originally found on the now unavailable debut album ‘Fashion Is The Enemy Of All Art’, the music found here often exhibits less of a post-rock sound, being closer in some ways to post-punk. As well as being an opportunity to present improved versions of older material and to introduce it to a new audience, the session was intended to provide something of an insight into the Nanaki live experience of days-gone-by. Although it may prove difficult to listen to the EP in a small, smoky venue, to best experience this record it is recommended that it is played at high volume.”
“Guerra de Cerdos is a Band from Buenos Aires formed in june of 2013, with the idea to generate a communion of artistic expression through the music. Their lyrics deal with historical and social topics, existencialism and other philosofical issues. Their sound is born on in such diverses genres like post punk, hardcore and thrash metal, creating a very own style with autentic and original force. The influences from joy division to Slayer, with the punk rock of the clash and the speed of minor threat, and add melodic elements. This days they are a TRIO, with Tapita (Guitar and Vocals), Osky (Bass and vocals) both former members of Ratticidio, and zala in drums and vocals (played in a number of local bands like nash, arrebato, neuroticos, nacidos para perder, etc.).
Guerra de Cerdos have a sound that is very old school yet original with the main focus being on post punk with the melody of gothic pop and they also mix the speed of hardcore punk and the heaviness of thash metal to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very powerful and the lyrics cover history, existencialism and philosophy.
The record was made on Javier PaRES sTUDIOS, with the artwork done by Villy Villian.”
“The first band’s full-length album was compiled from the original songs captured between 2009 and 2012. It depicts the development of their distinctive sound and the starting point. The title Spirit Kit shows the idea behind the recording: each song itself is a key to a particular spiritual mood. The soundscape was designed in a very spontaneous and natural way. Nobody planned to release this record, and yet it became the organic 8 track statement that had been gathered from a vast band’s catalogue of singles, outtakes and demos. Serious changes and re-recordings were excluded on purpose to deliver the purest feel and tension behind the music. Remastered by the wizard from Binomial Records. The beauty of layering and reserved power reveals itself in an unexpected way through repeated listening.”
“Mirador takes you on a tour through the intriguing, mysterious, and sometimes dangerous streets and alleyways of the Midnight World, where secrets lurk in every shadowy corner and behind every closed door, where nothing is as it seems.
This collection is best experienced in its entirety, from the suspenseful opening theme to the melancholy closing credits.”
