MD 008

What you can here on the Tape is the result of a spontaneous idea to play a collaboration as a quintet. A slowly growing piece, swelling and floating. Three guitars, viola and drums steady united into a 22minutes long piece that evokes different moods. Just listen to “17.02.2012 DE” and find out for yourself:

The Tape comes in a limited edition of 99 pieces in three different handmade and hand-die-cutted cardboard sleeves: 33 in graphite-black, 33 in medium-grey and 33 in deer-orange, made out of 300g cardboard. The Tape is pea-green and includes a 450g inlay card and a download code.

MD 006: AIDAN BAKER & MAIK ERDAS – CAMEO

aidan & maikLast year when Aidan Baker released his Album “The Spectrum Of Distraction” including collaborations with 18 different drummers, he went on tour with A Sun Amissa to support his album.

Cameo LPThis circumstance was the birth of an idea to do a show with Aidan Baker and a drummer. The guys over at thepostrock.de invited Aidan to do an improvisational show with Maik Erdas (former drummer of disbanded experimental Doom Trio Kodiak) in a church in Bochum (Germany).

The result was a 50 minutes long set full of different kinds of soundideas. Beginning with smooth melodies and rhythms, changing to experimental blueprints ending in an epic wall of doom sounds.

We are very proud to present you the documentation of this very unique evening. Aidan Baker put some final hands on the masters and the result is “Cameo”, a Vinyl + CD release. The vinyl contains the first and the last part of the set and the CD completes the package including the whole set from the church show.

Limited to 250 Vinyl + CD sets
Vinyl: Cameo I + II (40 minutes)
