MD 062: SARRAM – FOUR MOVEMENTS OF A SHADE

As you might have noticed our family is growing including many Italian artist and we are very happy to present you SARRAM alias Valerio Marras from Sardinia.

“Four Movements Of A Shade” is the second solo album by SARRAM. It features four haunting tracks, that move through different genres like doom, drone, ambient and somehow minimal post-rock, played with just a guitar and some synths. The idea behind that album was to go to the studio without having tracks: just an idea and the mood SARRAM had in mind to play an improvisational session. The result was recorded in one day at Blacktooth Studio by Nicola Olla and it turned out as a very dark and intense soundjourney. You can feel the temper of the recording session by listening to the four tracks of this record.

SARRAM recommends very loud volume for listening and yes we do that, too. The mastering by James Plotkin brings out all the details of the tracks, like maximum crackling of loud distorted parts but also the very quiet whispering of the guitar strings.

If you like artists like Sunn O))), Aidan Baker, N and Barn Owl, you will love this record.

“Four Movements Of A Shade” comes in edition of 200 copies housed in a black 4 panel sleeve with stunning black and white graphic artwork by Claudio Spanu.

MD 031: ZENJUNGLE – WE ARE NOT HERE

We are very pleased to release the new album by Zenjungle, as a follow up to his critically acclaimed Tape “Flow”. “We Are Not Here” picks up the mood of “Flow” with floating sounds from different kind of instruments, melting together into a river of drone, ambient and dark jazz.

Zenjungle - we are not here

Zenjungle aka Phil Gardelis from Athens (Greece) builds his soundscapes with electric guitars, field recordings, synths and his tenor saxophone giving the distinctive note to the sound universe of Zenjungle. This time also with guest musician Drombeg giving some string sounds to complete the floating soundjourney.

“We Are Not Here” synonymously stands for a moment in which you are not able to react, like the moment when you see that a house is burning and you know that your home will be destroyed by the fire. Juxtaposed to this very dark allegory the sound of the album is not fully dark, obversely it is mostly very open and lightful, depending on the mood of the listener. This is also a detail that we tried to devolve into the artwork of the album.

“We Are Not Here” comes as a CD in a 4 panel digisleeve with matt finish, limited to 200 copies.

Release date: 05. August 2016
