We will co-release the first album of our friend Rafel’s solo project “WILLIAM LUKE VALERIO” in the next months along with FORMES DIVERSES DE VIDA on Tape.
Here’s the first song:
William Luke Valerio uses demeaned voices, rotten whispers, spoken-word transitions and field recordings combined with a plain use of guitar to provide an intimate glance to the human realm of absurdity. Lead by the hypnagogic vision of the ‘you must have a goal in your life’ totem (first trap we settle to our own offspring), humans of western societies often develop in a plastic-ruled-careless-reigned-distraction-led-Greenhouse. Here roses are born without shame nor empathy or smell. While the world screams for the release from this (probably self-imposed) constraint, the truth is individuals get born, grow up and die. And everything stays pretty much the same. Well, crooning to the sparks of beauty emanating from this noxious swamp should be fun for sure.
After playing with his all-time-band Purkinje https://purkinjerock.bandcamp.com/album/la-malaltia , Rafel gets to this solo project by accident, since the other bands he was involved with were focused on other musical experimentation fields. Initiating the musical pieces in his room during insomnia-driven nights, the first album of William Luke Valerio (‘He pujat al cel i he vist tots els dimonis dels que fugia’) was recorded in February and will be released by the end of summer 2019. When he is not playing music, he is writing things down, organizing concerts / releasing music with the label/cultural association Formes Diverses de Vida https://fddvida.bandcamp.com/ and since last May, doing research in a neuroscience laboratory. New times, old dreams, same shit forever.
WILLIAM LUKE VALERIO and FLIEßGEWÄSSER will go on a DIY tour in September and if you’d like to help out with a show, please feel free to get in touch: we’ll really appreciate it! Help needed in Slovenia, Croatia, Hungaria, Austria, South West Germany and Marseille, Montpellier and Lyon Thanks! 🙂
We are co-releasing the Lytic debut 12″. Lytic is a new band founded in November 2015 by Jamie and Frankie in NYC. They have been playing in bands like Daesu, Off Minor and Saetia. The songs on this 12″ have been recorded by Steve Roche on October 22nd and 23rd at Permanent Hearing Damage, Philadelphia along with additional songs for two Splits.
Here you can listen to the pre-mastered versions of Bleak, The Last Northcore Kid and Screens:
It will be white and the B-Side will have an etching designed by Girl in Amber. It should be ready the latest in July.
tröpical ice land is a screamo/emoviolence band from Torreló in Catalunya. On one of the first concerts after moving to Barcelona I saw them playing with Baton Rouge in La Rampa. Finally they have recorded a new album and I’m really happy I could co-release it with them, Dingleberry Records and Zegema Beach Records.
“Onze ocultismes, sabers perduts i altres petites faules d’ultramar”
Tano!’s secord album is here! They are an experimental/emo/hardcore band from Girona, living the concept of writing songs with the motto “let’s put something here which no one would expect next”. Eleven cuts recorded live by Santi Garcia and Borja Pérez at Ultramarinos Costa Brava, mastered by Victor Garcia and wrapped up with Xavi Forné’s artwork (Error! Design).
Reciprocate – the new band of Stef Ketteringham – guitar & vocals Henri Grimes – drums Marion Andrau – bass guitar – have recorded this demo, which includes recordings of some of Reciprocate’s first songs, and two live recordings from their first gig at New River Studios, London. As you might hear it is the follow-up project of Shield your Eyes.
