If you live in Europe, then you possibly suffer from one of the hottest summers in ages, like us. What you need to cool down is the new Asmus Tietchens CD "Eisgang". Chilling ambient sounds and a cover that makes you shiver by looking at it. We have expanded the original album by two long extra tracks, and the previous CD release by one. Next up will be the brand new record by Eric Random and the deluxe 2 disc edition of "Title in Limbo" by The Residents and Renaldo & The Loaf. Please note that all releases by Institution D.O.L. are sold out here. Stock is very low on Chakk's "Clocks and Babies" and "1979" by Thomas Leer. Watch out for some brilliant releases in autumn with CDs by Un Drame Musical Instantane, Burial Hex, The Residents, Snakefinger and many more.
Good news for fans of Sheffield's electro band Hula: the beautiful solo album Nighthawks by John Avery is out today. Remastered and with two bonus tracks, it's a must have. On the same day we are happy to announce that Nort's album Games of Dance and Muscleblood will be released by us in autumn/winter. We have also just signed a contract with American Horror Electronics act Burial Hex. The first CD release will be a compilation of two previously download only albums. Both of them are amongst the best the project has ever recorded. Also out very soon will be a special edition of Title in Limbo, the seminal collaboration between The Residents and Renaldo & The Loaf. This will come as a double CD with the legendary 4 Daze recordings as bonus. The next release in August will be Eisgang - an ambient album by German composer Asmus Tietchens. On a sad note, we are shocked by the untimely death of Tuxedomoon bass player Peter Principle. May he rest in peace.
Charles Bobuck's new album 1967 is out today. It is an homage to the summer of love, to the year 1967. Bobuck presents his very unique cover versions of the hits of that year. Next out will be John Avery's soundtrack for Nighthawks. John is a member of Hula, but this doesn't sound like Sheffield funk at all. It is a gentle piano album that we have always loved and are now proud to present to you on CD. On a different note, Sleep Chamber's seminal album "Satanic Sanction" is now sold out and out of print. A few copies of "Sorcery, Spells and Serpent Charms" are left, but these will be gone soon as well. Next up will be Asmus Tietchens' album "Eisgang", including an unreleased bonus track. We are not taking a break during the summer so watch out for many exciting releases to come soon.
