Today Side-Line presents you Electronic Resistance – Reconstruction, a follow-up to our previous 55-track strong compilation ‘Electronic Resistance’ which was released earlier this year. That previous compilation was extremely well received and ended up being the most successful darkwave release ever on Bandcamp. As a result we were able to support a lot of charity work and organizations.
The war is still far from being over and what the Russians started on February 24th 2022 already has had a huge impact on all of our lives, but way more on those of the Ukrainian people.
All donations this time will go to United24, a global initiative to support Ukraine.”
After much demand from fans and bands, we decided to compile a Post-Punk compilation, called Post-Punk (Genesis), uniting Post-Punk artists from allover the world.
We were honestly quite surprised by the amount of submissions we received, 1564 in total. 44 bands were then invited to be part of the compilation itself. You’ll get an eclectic collection of all of the colors you can find inside the Post-Punk scene, from pure New Wave to contemporary mixes of Post Punk and electronics. There will be something for everyone!
The tracks underwent careful post mastering & sound adjustment by Erlend Eilertsen (Lights A.M, Essence Of Mind) and this for a maximum audio pleasure.
Post-Punk (Genesis) is available here for free or as a pay-what-you-want download release. All proceedings will again go to the various charities we support.”
“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.”
