Two new CDs are in stock from today: Tabor Radosti's phenomenal new album called Egregor and Hiroshimabend's first ever European release entitled dddirzzz. We are very pleased with how they came out, looking and sounding great. If you haven't heard of either, listen on our bandcamp page. Don't be shy to discover something new, you can't always listen to the same old bands..... The Klangers will be off to London this Friday to take part in the 40th anniversary celebration of Rough Trade. Pleased to meet our friends from Wrangler there, who will play alongside Scritti Politti, John Grant and The Pop Group. The next festival after that will be the XV Wroclaw Industrial Festival in Poland, where Main, Psychic TV, Asmus Tietchens and Monoton will play amongst many others. As usual, we will have a large merch table there. The next two items available will be Gurdy Hurding, Renaldo & The Loaf's comeback album after a 30 year break, and Greener Postures by the one and only Snakefinger. Watch this space for further news.
The big news for October is of course the brand new album by Renaldo & The Loaf. Entitled Gurdy Hurding, it is a return to full form after 30 years. Release date is October 25th, pre-order will start soon. October brings two more CDs: the debut European release by American electro project Hiroshimabend who also perform at Wroclaw Industrial Festival this November where Klanggalerie will have a stall, like every year. Unfortunately, Zahgurim had to cancel, but we also brought Asmus Tietchens there and the whole line-up is simply sensational. The Hiroshimabend album will be available at the same time as the brand new long player by Czech occult electronics duo Tabor Radosti. Many years in the works, this excellent album finally sees the light of day this month. November will see the re-issue of Rideau by Une Drame Musical Instantane and Snakefinger's Greener Postures. More than enough reasons to stay excited.
We are back from our holidays and all pre-ordered copies of the Swords of Slidell/Later tonight bundle have been shipped. Once more, please accept our apology for the delay. There was nothing we could do about it but wait. As soon as the CDs were here, they were wrapped up in a pack up marathon. Now they're in your local mail's hands. I hope they will deliver them all as soon as possible. Thanks once more for your patience. Back in the office, we are preparing the next releases on Klanggalerie: The Residents' Delta Nudes and Charles Bobuck plays The Residents will be out in September, followed by two very interesting projects: one is the brand new album by Czech occult electro group Tabor Radosti, the other the first European release of Texan IDM project hiroshimabend. Both will be available late October/early November. Work on a couple more Residents/Bobuck projects has also started, we will have news for you next month. In the meantime, keep an eye on the website and enjoy the last rays of the summer sun.
