Τhe oddly named "(I'm) Full Of Spiders, Man!" is a 3 member horror synth-punk band from Athens, Greece, which emerged from the Greek underground scene seemingly out of nowhere on September 2019 as a desperate attempt of honest expression against a reality that has simply gone a bit too far. They first appeared as a support act at the "Le Prince Harry" gig at "Ίδρυμα 2.14" (Ιdryma 2.14) on October 2019 and at the same month they recorded and released their debut album on the independent punk label "Είσοδος Κινδύνου" (Eisodos Kindynou) on a limited run of tape cassettes. In the old world, before the COVID 19 situation arose, the band managed to perform 5 times in total at different cities around Greece. This notorious band is one of an awkward geometry of both dark atmosphere and rad energy, maintaining a humorous approach on their criticism against all things the modern world stands for.

  • The London one-man synth and garagepunk project is launching its first proper full-length release after some of its already very delicious singles and EPs. I have to say that Theo Zhykharyev just topped the recent short players with this album. The record is actually just one thing - one complete highlight. Something between Screamers meets early Numan/Tubeway Army and a health dose of DC hardcore. Awesome stuff! Energetic and slightly insane - it's hard not to love it. I think this will end up being one of the albums you whip out when someone claims no one makes great music anymore.

  • Harsh Symmetry, the darkwave project of musician Julian Sharwarko, is gearing up to launch its sophomore album titled “Imitation.” Recently relocated from Sacramento to Los Angeles, Sharwarko has crafted an album that seamlessly blends the nostalgic elements of influential bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure, and New Order, with the modern sounds of contemporary acts such as Twin Tribes and Boy Harsher. The forthcoming nine-song LP is set to be released via Fabrika Records, a label renowned for its roster of influential darkwave and post-punk artists. The album title “Imitation” is reflective of Julian Sharwarko’s introspective exploration of his own musical identity amidst constant comparisons to these influences. It poses a question about the nature of his work – is Harsh Symmetry an imitation of the past, or an archetype for the future, creating something so familiar yet so new that it feels as if it existed long before its manifestation? Despite these existential questions, “Imitation” is a modern album steeped in nostalgia, entirely recorded and performed by Sharwarko himself. The album features the phenomenal lead single, “Glass Tears,” a song that guides listeners through an icy, dystopian realm. Another standout track, “Make Up Artist,” presents a fascinating equilibrium, propelling forward with a lively tempo while maintaining a reflective atmosphere. The album also features a cover of Madonna’s “Open Your Heart,” reinterpreted through a hauntingly mysterious lens. “Scalpel” stands out with its vibrant metallic bassline and psychedelic aura, while “Crystal Smile” transitions into a dreamy vocal performance atop a distinctly 80s synth pad. The album closes with its formidable title track, “Imitation,” a discordant piece that vibrates with an eclectic mix of city-pop elegance and a motorik beat inspired by krautrock. Label: Fabrika

    6.50 incl. tax
    Lung #13 (Τεύχος Μαρτίου 2022) Ο αριθμός 13 θεωρείται από πολλούς γρουσούζικος. Στο Lung δεν είμαστε προληπτικοί οπότε βάλαμε σαν στόχο το 13ο τεύχος να είναι το πιο πλούσιο στη μέχρι σήμερα διαδρομή του εντύπου μας. Το νέο -συλλεκτικό- τεύχος είναι αφιερωμένο εξ ολόκληρου στην εναλλακτική σκηνή των '90s, μια περίοδο μαγική για όσους την βίωσαν, ειδικά σε νεανική ηλικία.

Όπως πάντα το Lung Fanzine συνοδεύεται από μια CD-συλλογή. Λόγω της ειδικής περίστασης ετοιμάσαμε μια διπλή συλλογή με μερικά από τα κορυφαία ονόματα των 90s (και όχι μόνο). Πάνω από 2 ώρες μουσικής και 28 ονόματα, μεταξύ των οποίων οι: Slint, Mudhoney, Shellac, Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Girls Against Boys, The Afghan Whigs, The Jesus Lizard, Built to Spill, Blonde Redhead, Sebadoh, The Gathering, Black Heart Procession και ο προσφάτως εκλιπών Mark Lanegan.

Τέλος, το εξώφυλλο της συλλογής κοσμεί ένα υπέροχο έργο του Γιώργου Ρόρρη, ο οποίος μας το παραχώρησε με μεγάλη γενναιοδωρία. Και κάτι ακόμα: στις 29 Απριλίου θα γιορτάσουμε με ένα δυνατό live στο Ρομάντσο τα 3 (3,5 για την ακρίβεια) χρόνια του DIY εντύπου μας! Περισσότερες πληροφορίες πολύ σύντομα!

    Μόλις τρεις μήνες από την κυκλοφορία του EP «Βεντάλιες Και Σιδερογροθιές», ο MAZOHA, ακατάπαυστος, ξαναχτυπά με το νέο του album «Τώρα Χορός», πιάνοντας το νήμα μουσικά, στιχουργικά και συναισθηματικά από εκεί που το άφησε στο προηγούμενο album του, «ΠΡΤΘΛΤΣ». Όπως δηλώνει ο τίτλος και επιβεβαιώνουν το ομώνυμο κομμάτι και τα κομμάτια «Τσιχλόφουσκα» και «Ψυχολογικά Τραύματα Social Club», υπάρχει ακόμα μεγαλύτερη διάθεση για χορό, που πηγάζει από την δίψα για εκτόνωση που γνωρίζουν καλά όσοι έχουν ζήσει την εμπειρία των live του MAZOHA. Παράλληλα, στα κομμάτια «Ήρωες Πολλοί Αγάλματα Λίγα», «Σαν Σκιάχτρο» και «Νέα Υόρκη» τα beats, τα synths και οι φωνητικές γραμμές είναι χαρακτηριστικά δείγματα της σκοτεινής ποπ που χαρακτηρίζει το album του «Μπάσταρδο». Το tracklist ολοκληρώνεται με δύο ιδιαίτερα κομμάτια: τo «Ονειρεύομαι Μωρό Μου» με το noise-shoegaze intro και τα ραπαριστά καταιγιστικά φωνητικά, μια εξομολογητική και καταγγέλουσα λούπα που θα μπορούσε να κρατάει για πάντα, και τέλος «Το Πουτανάκι Σου», το ερωτικό τραγούδι του δίσκου με το ρεφρέν τσίχλα, που φλερτάρει επικίνδυνα με το trash, γραμμένο για να ακούγεται αργά το βράδυ σε όλα τα μπαρ. Ένα album αντιθέσεων που βουτάει από την απόγνωση στη λύτρωση και από τη χαρά στη λύπη, παντρεύοντας το σκοτάδι με το φως. Το πιο MAZOHA album μέχρι στιγμής. Κυκλοφορεί σε LP και Digital album από την Ιnner Ear. * * * Just three months after the release of the EP "Βεντάλιες Και Σιδερογροθιές (Fans And Iron Fists)", relenteless MAZOHA, strikes again with his new album "Τώρα Χορός (Now Dance)", catching the thread musically, lyrically and emotionally from where he left it on his previous album, "PRTTHLTS”. As stated by the title and confirmed by the homonymous track and the tracks "Τσιχλόφουσκα (Chewing gum)" and "Ψυχολογικά Τραύματα Social Club (Psychological Traumas Social Club)", there is an even greater dancing mood, which stems from the thirst for relaxation. Those who have experienced the live gigs of MAZOHA know this feeling well. At the same time, in the songs "Ήρωες Πολλοί Αγάλματα Λίγα (Many Heroes Few Statues)", "Σαν Σκιάχτρο (Like A Scarecrow)" and "New York" the beats, the synths and the vocal lines are typical examples of the dark pop that characterizes his album "Bastardo". The tracklist is completed with two special tracks: "Ονειρεύομαι Μωρό Μου (Ι Dream Baby)" with the noise-shoegaze intro and the rap stormy vocals, a confessional and denouncing loop that could last forever, and finally "Το Πουτανάκι Σου (Your Little Whore)”, the love song of the album with a chewing gum refrain, flirting dangerously with trash, written to be heard late at night in all bars. An album of contrasts that dives from despair to redemption and from joy to sorrow, marrying darkness with light. The most MAZOHA album so far. Label: Inner Ear
  • Harsh Symmetry are an exemplary darkwave project, led by musician and producer Julian Sharwarko. A contemporary outfit, Display Model is the debut album from the alias (following a spate of recent singles), spanning eight synthpop haunters, with influences from 80s new wave, goth and shoegaze abounding. Sharwarko concept of "harsh symmetry" essentially gets at feelings of inadequacy and personal appearance, with the album delving deep into ideas of identity, alienation, and consumerism - with lyrics inspired by Moore’s tumultuous experience as a de facto fashion model, in his overt criticism of social media and musical spectacle. Label: Fabrika Barcode: 8016670159001
  • “Στο σκοτάδι”/‘’in the darkness’’ is the third full-length album Selofan release on Fabrika. Once you put this record on, you feel like being grabbed by the hand and led through the darkest subterranean corridors to a sweaty nightclub. Romanticism and danger are in the air, a nihilistic vision of beauty. claustrophobia, separation, pre paid feelings, leaving and letting go is what this record is about, making you want to cry and dance at the same time, mixing the most sentimental strings with punk bass lines, synthesized trumpets, the finest analog wave with circus sounds. the voice half-speaking, half-singing, expressing either the strongest emotion or the complete absence of it, tells a story or remembers a dream, powerful and tender. Again the sentiments are expressed in different languages, which is meanwhile a characteristic of the band, the b-side surprisingly this time completely in Greek. The whole instrumentation is live and all analog, recorded at their home studio in Athens and mastered by Chris “snake” Manolitsis, the man behind most of the memorable bands to emerge from the Greek new wave scene of the 80s. This record is a manifest of love! Label: Fabrika Barcode: 852669411099
  • Through varied experimental synth-scapes conjured with keen ears for sound design, production, and theatrical aesthetics, Selofan rest not on the laurels of just creating highly danceable coldwave infused music, but with together with Joanna Pavlidou’s haunting vocals, and Dimitris Pavlidis’ throbbing bass guitar, and modular synth compositions, the pair conjure whole other worlds and narratives throughout each album and music video they create. Thus far the Selofan have released 5 studio albums, issued through their own legendary label they curate themselves: Fabrika Records. Through their Fabrika family, Selofan have championed such acts as Lebanon Hanover, and She Past Away, aiding these bands in becoming two of the most popular Darkwave acts worldwide.

  • SELOFAN | vitrioli | LP

    20.00 incl. tax
    As Selofan’s fifth studio album, Vitrioli, from 2018, is a testament to the tragedy of life. The Greek duo, Joanna Pavlidou and Dimitris Pavlidis, who recorded the album in the Fabrika Records home studio, continue on in their poetic, but heartbreaking, music set to a dance beat. Between languages (Greek, English, German, and Spanish), Selofan feels on the brink of mania with Vitroli. However, the madness is controlled, the songs are restrained hysterics that culminate into the alchemic perfection of the band’s specific moody sound. Limited Black Edition of 300. Label: Fabrika Barcode: 8016670156826
  • Once you enter Selofans’ ”Cine Romance” you will never want to leave again. You will be transferred in a new-wave world of playful irony, electronic melodies and experimentation. Once we go through the gates of this Cinema we shall forget our fears in the sound of a cinematic track inspired by David Lynchs’ movie ”Dune”. After this catharsis we are ready to enter the dark, mutant world of -according to our opinion- the currenlty most visionary band emerging from the Greek underground. Selofans’ world is multi sided, you may feel directly connected to it and the next moment you may lose the ground under your feet. Polymorphism comes from Greece and has always been a characteristic for Selofans’ music. The album is singular in concept but varies genres: dark-wave treasures, synth-punk spells, melodic saxophone fairy-tales and early industrial beats coexist in harmony, while a hallucinating voice sings or whispers poems of great emotional tension in different languages, exposing uncomfortable truths. This album transfers a powerfully original fusion of energies and is meant to be only for the wild at heart! A limited to 300 copies future-classic! includes download link, inner sleeve with the lyrics and sticker. Label: Fabrika Barcode: 8016670156796

    Powerplant return in 2022 with their long awaited second full length, but things are not quite what you may have been expecting. Started in late 2020 during ‘that’ time and finished this January, Stump Soup finds Powerplant taking the instrumental interludes from previous releases to their natural conclusion and have delivered an 20 track, hour long dungeon synth album. Yes, really. Theo Zhykharyev: “A year ago I landed on all these really cool left field DS releases from the mid 2010s, kind of like egg-punk of the crypt world, and it made me smile because I could go there. New timeline just got weirder, but life's a movie and I wouldn't want to have it any other way.” The album is available as a 60 minute cassette, limited to 300 copies. (Static Shock Records)

    Soul Jazz Records new ‘Cold Wave’ is a new collection of current electronic artists who have all been shaped by the early European cold wave artists of the late 70s and early 80s. This is the second release of Soul Jazz Records’ new Cold Wave overview. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This second edition Cold Wave #2 comes in two vinyl editions – a one-off pressing purple coloured vinyl edition and a black vinyl edition. Both come as heavyweight double vinyl housed in bespoke individual inner sleeves and the limited edition first pressing of this album comes with its own free pull-out fanzine on the groups featured. The CD edition comes with artist booklet/fanzine and slipcase. All editions are printed in special dayglo colour finish. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ These first artists created new electronic musical landscapes as well as pursuing a stubborn D-I-Y aesthetic, often releasing material on cassette and pioneering use of lo-fi technology, primitive drum machines and home-recording techniques. As part of this continued evolution today many of the artists featured here also self-release their own material, run labels, publish fanzines, or are part of wider musical collectives. Aside from the first electronic, no wave, and post-punk artists cited as influences –Suicide, Patrick Cowley, The Normal, Martin Hannett, Laurie Anderson, Public Image – this new generation of artists also show an exquisitely open source of electronic and disparate influences, everything from Underground Resistance to Purcell, from Scientist to New Beat and more besides. Most of the featured artists are based in Europe and include Krikor from France, Beta Evers and L.F.T. from Germany, Lena Willikens, Job Siffre and De Ambassade from the Netherlands, Toulouse Low Trax from Germany, Dave I.D. and Broken English Club from the UK, and V.C.V.S from Georgia All of the bands featured here make distinctive contemporary music out of the 80s roots of the first cold wave movement.

  • Disciples of the DAF school (machine, vocals, drums) and appreciated for their incandescent live performances, the duo Bound By Endogamy have signed an opus revealing a wide range of references. These include ebm, synth-punk, minimal wave, electro-funk and power electronics. Like so many bad dreams, the eight tracks follow one another in a sinister, psychotic climate, shrouded in sonic violence and nihilistic poetic surrealism. The whole album is built on the original rhythms of the CR-78, the legendary wooden drum machine produced by Roland in the late 70s. The analog synth instrumental tracks are mostly haunted by the voice of Kleio Thomaïdes, whose intensity is one of the highlights of the record ; the amplitude of her vocal range extends from the susurrations of a stewardess on Xanax to the guttural borborygms of a demonic child devoted to exorcism. The vinyl is published by a coalition of three labels. Les Disques Mauvais Garçons, affiliated with the Born Bad store in Paris. Màgia Roja, the Barcelona-based collective label of Dame Area. And Les Disques Bongo Joe from Geneva. The unprecedented association of these three labels with singular and demanding artistic lines should be enough to arouse the curiosity of even the most impassive music connoisseur.

  • In the ever-evolving landscape of the underground music scene, few bands have made an impact quite like Selofan, an immenstly talented duo of of Joanna Pavlidou and Dimitris Pavlidis. has carved a niche for themselves within the international pantheon of darkwave, post-punk, and '80s synthpop, blending these influences to create a sound uniquely their own. Their journey, marked by a commitment to artistic integrity and evolution, has taken them from the cozy confines of local venues to the grand stages of international festivals, earning them a dedicated following and critical acclaim along the way. .Their sixth album, Partners in Hell, released in October 2020, navigated the band through unprecedented times, testing their adaptability and resilience. Despite the hurdles to performing live and the global pandemic's challenges, Selofan emerged stronger, embarking on international tours with a newfound appreciation and connection with their global audience, During this period of introspection and isolation, Joanna Pavlidou embarked on a new venture, GIOVANNA, released under Selofan’s house label, Fabrika Records. GIOVANNA, which places Pavlidou at the helm of vocal and lyrical composition, represents a full on foray into synth-pop. showcasing a different facet of her artistic identity, with lyrics entirely in Greek. In 2023, Selofan hit the circuit hard, lighting up revered festivals with their presence. They stood shoulder to shoulder with heavy hitters like Molchat Doma and Lebanon Hanover at Grey Scale, and performed with with the likes of The Sisters of Mercy, VNV Nation, and She Past Away at the Death Disco fest in their hometown of Athens. With each album they have released Selofan made significant strides in their evolution, deepening their engagement with their art. And their forthcoming seventh full length studio release, Animal Mentality, is poised to be their most compelling work yet. Animal Mentality unfolds as a labyrinthine journey through the elemental aspects of human emotion and experience, set against the backdrop of Selofan's signature darkwave sound. Each track on the album delves into different facets of the human condition, from the depths of desire to the pangs of isolation, encapsulating the duo's profound understanding of the intricate spectrum of human emotion and subjective experiences. The album kicks off with "Sticky Fingers," a track that melds cinematic scope with a haunting storyline, reminiscent of Jean-Michel Jarre's icy synths and a lyrical nod to Joy Division. This opening salvo revisits the tragic allure of classic car accident songs, weaving a tale of joy turned to sorrow amidst the snowy Alps. "Love's Secret Game" delves into the depths of forbidden desire, with vocals that echo the melancholy timbre of Xmal Deutschland, Lebanon Hanover, and Nico. It's a tale of passion and ephemeral connection, promising an enduring presence despite the inevitable fracture of time and distance. In "Lucille," sung by Dimitris Pavlidis, the plot is ensnared in the machinations of a tempestuous affair, with gothic undertones evoking the dramatic soundscapes of Ultravox and Clan of Xymox. The lyrics are steeped in danger and desire - a dance with the shadows. "Sacrifice Me" plunges into the abyss of despair, driven by a Bauhaus-esque bassline. It's a plea for release from the chains of alienation, a yearning for a final gesture of solace in the face of overwhelming darkness. "Bluebirds" offers a poignant reflection on solitude, with the fleeting imagery of bluebirds symbolizing the elusive quest for happiness.The song serves as a meditation on the internal struggle to maintain hope in a world shaded by sorrow. The narrative shifts with "Glassplitter," where German lyrics paint a portrait of deceptive allure and toxic entanglement. We are confronted with irresistible danger, masked by a veneer of beauty. "Ignoranz" continues the exploration in German, pondering the universality of misunderstanding. It's a reflection on the subjective nature of truth and the shared human experience of ignorance. "Behind My Eyelids" closes the odyssey, a contemplation on melancholy and metamorphosis. The phoenix rises rom the ashes of betrayal to the brighter realm of renewal - a beautiful homage to the resilience of the human spirit amidst the often harrowing cycles of life. More than just an album, Animal Mentality is a milestone in Selofan's career, marking a decade of musical innovation and growth. It's a testament to their enduring spirit and a bold step into new realms of artistic expression. As Selofan continues to evolve, they remain at the forefront of their genre, pushing boundaries and exploring the depths of the human psyche through their haunting melodies and poignant lyrics.

  • Two years have passed since the successful release of the first "Sows von egal" compilation. "Sowas von egal" is a collaboration between the Hamburg record label Bureau B and the Hamburg party series Damaged Goods where they present rare, obscure synth & wave discs from the early 1980s which absolutely deserve to heard. It was clear from the outset that “Sowas von egal 2” would need to scale similar heights of excellence as its predecessor, featuring carefully selected, sought-after, danceable tunes. In contrast to the first volume, most of the acts here were only active in the early 1980s and have not released any records since then. The tape artists were particularly invested in the DIY ethic – as is often apparent in their sound aesthetics and the unbridled energy which has lost none of its intensity today. Their art was seldom – if ever – tempered by commercial considerations or sales strategies. A year in the making: “Sowas von egal 2” is a worthy successor to part 1!

    Hello there! “Sowas von egal”, the album before you, is the result of a collaboration between the bespoke Hamburg record label Bureau B and the Hamburg party series Damaged Goods. The divergent trajectories of a record company on the one hand and DJs on the other are happily aligned through a love and passion for seeking out, collecting, releasing and playing rare, remarkable music which simply needs to be heard. For the three of us as DJs, we created Damaged Goods first and foremost as a danceable party where we could play music beyond the regular and repetitious repertoire of (dark) electro clichés. Our focus would be on seldom heard post-punk and synth wave from, or in the style of, the 1980s. We’d slip in these unknown or long forgotten treasures between more familiar hits from the genre to inspire and excite our guests. Eighties culture is very much a reference point today in music, art and fashion, so why not play the originals – especially as there is still so much to be discovered from that period? Many of the old records we’d play in the club had only been pressed in small quantities, often sold exclusively at the respective bands’ gigs. More than 30 years later, it is almost impossible to get hold of these tracks – unless you pay over the odds on certain websites or track them down as inferior MP3s on this or that blog. To be fair, at least they have gone to the trouble of getting hold of the songs and transferring them to a digital format. This is why it was so important to us that our collaboration with Bureau B would be dedicated to selecting tracks for “Sowas von egal” which are not readily available (on vinyl) and have not been rereleased (or the reissues themselves are genuine rarities). It gives us great pleasure to announce that we succeeded, 100%! The groundwork for this project was interesting in itself: sorting through and listening to songs, making lists, setting priorities. Then getting in touch with labels and trying to find the musicians of yesteryear. This wasn’t always so easy: some had disappeared from view, others had actually died. When we did find who we were looking for, the reaction was generally positive, although some were surprised that anybody was interested in their music today. At this point we would ike to express our deepest gratitude to mastering maestro Tom Morgenstern, who worked wonders with a jumble of disparate source material to achieve such sonic consistency. Fans of our parties will recognize more than a few of the tracks on “Sowas von egal” and we are really proud to have put together this collection. The project took around nine months to get everything in place and we hope you will have as much fun listening to it as we had researched, compiling and releasing it.

    Μετά το άλμπουμ «ΠΡΤΘΛΤΣ», ο MAZOHA επιστρέφει με «Βεντάλιες Και Σιδερογροθιές». Ένα μίνι ακουστικό album με 5 τραγούδια γυμνά από beats και synths, σαν να παίζεις κιθάρα και να τραγουδάς στο δωμάτιό σου. Τα τραγούδια ηχογραφήθηκαν σε διάστημα τεσσάρων ημερών τον Οκτώβριο του 2021 από τον Τζίμη Πολιούδη στο σπίτι του και τα όργανα που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν είναι ακουστική κιθάρα, μπαγλαμαδάκι και μελλόντικα. Στίχοι που μιλούν για κροκόδειλους στους δρόμους, ημιλιποθυμίες, σιδερογροθιές, δωμάτια-πλανήτες. Παρόλο που τα τραγούδια φλερτάρουν με το είδος της μπαλάντας, δεν πρόκειται για ερωτικά τραγούδια (με εξαίρεση τη διασκευή του «Άνοιξη»), αλλά για ένα σύνολο τραγουδιών που εκφράζουν πως όσο τρωτοί συναισθηματικά κι αν είναι κάποιοι άνθρωποι, δεν υποχωρούν, αντιστέκονται και προσπαθούν να είναι η εξαίρεση που θα γίνει το παράδειγμα στο αποκτηνωμένο σήμερα. Το «Βεντάλιες Και Σιδερογροθιές» κυκλοφορεί σε digital ep και σε κασέτα από την Ιnner Ear. * * * After the album "PRTTHLTS", MAZOHA returns with "Vedalies Ke Siderogrothies (Fans And Iron Fists)". A mini acoustic album of 5 songs, naked from beats and synths, like playing the guitar and singing in your room. The songs were recorded over a period of four days in October 2021 by Jimmy Polioudis at his home with the use of acoustic guitar, baglamadaki and melodika. The lyrics talk about crocodiles in the streets, near-fainting, iron fists, rooms-planets. Although the songs flirt with the genre of the ballad, they are not love songs (with the exception of the cover of "Anixi (Spring)"), but a set of songs that express that no matter how emotionally vulnerable some people are, they do not give up, they resist and try to be the exception that will become the example in the brutal current state we are living.

Το «Ας Τους Σκοτώσουμε Όλους…» είναι γνήσιο παιδί μίας πολυδιάστατης εποχής ψηφιακών μέσων και γρήγορης ταχύτητας, όπου τα πάντα μοιάζουν να περιφέρονται γύρω από μία μαύρη τρύπα. Indie ροκ και πανκ τραγούδια, ποπ μπαλάντες και hip hop επιρροές συνθέτουν το πολύπλευρο μουσικό προφίλ του δίσκου. Στιχουργικά, περισσότερο κατασταλαγμένος από ποτέ και χωρίς να χάνει τον αυτοσαρκασμό του, καταθέτει 17* ελληνόστιχα τραγούδια, που υμνούν την αρχή και το τέλος του έρωτα, την ελπίδα και την απελπισία και αναμετριούνται με την πατριαρχία, την βαρεμάρα της καθημερινότητας, το κοινωνικό τέλμα και τον θάνατο. Ο Τζίμης Πολιούδης ηχογράφησε το άλμπουμ, τον Ιούνιο του 2022, απομονωμένος στο σπίτι του, αφουγκραζόμενος προσωπικά αλλά και εξωτερικά ερεθίσματα και γεγονότα. Η συνηθισμένη του δημιουργική μοναχικότητα σ’ αυτό τον δίσκο διακόπτεται από ενδιαφέρουσες συνεργασίες: η Nalyssa Green συμμετέχει στο ντουέτο «Αποσμητικό», ο Θωμάς Στρατάκης (Green Was Greener) συνυπογράφει την μουσική στα κομμάτια «Μελλοντικέ Μου Εαυτέ» και «Τι Θα Γίνει» και ο Κώστας Θεοδωρίδης έχει γράψει τους στίχους στο «Ανώδυνο».

    Soul Jazz Records new ‘Cold Wave’ is a new collection of current electronic artists who have all been shaped by the early European cold wave artists of the late 70s and early 80s. This is the second release of Soul Jazz Records’ new Cold Wave overview. This second edition Cold Wave #2 comes in two vinyl editions – a one-off pressing purple coloured vinyl edition and a black vinyl edition. Both come as heavyweight double vinyl housed in bespoke individual inner sleeves and the limited edition first pressing of this album comes with its own free pull-out fanzine on the groups featured. The CD edition comes with artist booklet/fanzine and slipcase. All editions are printed in special dayglo colour finish. These first artists created new electronic musical landscapes as well as pursuing a stubborn D-I-Y aesthetic, often releasing material on cassette and pioneering use of lo-fi technology, primitive drum machines and home-recording techniques. As part of this continued evolution today many of the artists featured here also self-release their own material, run labels, publish fanzines, or are part of wider musical collectives. Aside from the first electronic, no wave, and post-punk artists cited as influences –Suicide, Patrick Cowley, The Normal, Martin Hannett, Laurie Anderson, Public Image – this new generation of artists also show an exquisitely open source of electronic and disparate influences, everything from Underground Resistance to Purcell, from Scientist to New Beat and more besides. Most of the featured artists are based in Europe and include Krikor from France, Beta Evers and L.F.T. from Germany, Lena Willikens, Job Siffre and De Ambassade from the Netherlands, Toulouse Low Trax from Germany, Dave I.D. and Broken English Club from the UK, and V.C.V.S from Georgia All of the bands featured here make distinctive contemporary music out of the 80s roots of the first cold wave movement. The CD edition comes with artist booklet/fanzine and slipcase. All editions are printed in special dayglo colour finish. Label: Soul Jazz Records Barcode: 5026328104850

    BEOGRAD (Serbian for Belgrade) was a Serbian electronic four-piece band that was formed in the capital of the former Yugoslavia in 1980. Influenced by acts such as Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Ultravox and Human League, they played a pioneering role in the Yugoslav synth-pop scene. Their debut studio album, "Remek Depo," was released in late 1982 on cassette and in early 1983 on LP by the state-run PGP RTB label. It achieved great media success and the public loved it, as it was released at the time of the buzzing Belgrade Alternative scene (BAS) – a vibrant ‘underground’ movement of avantgarde artists and musicians which included seminal bands such as Sarlo Akrobata, Ekatarina Velika, Idoli, Elektricni Orgazam etc. Unfortunately, the band disbanded shortly after the album's release. The original line-up of Beograd consisted of Slobodan Stanić (synthesizer), Ljubodrag Bubalo (bass guitar, synthesizer), Milan Bubalo (rhythm machine, electric drums), and Dejan Stanisavljević (synthesizer, vocals). In 2012, Dejan Stanisavljević and Milan Bubalo reformed Beograd with a group of younger musicians and released the album "Pola/pola" in 2015. Currently, the band is on hiatus, with the latest lineup comprising of Dejan Stanisavljević (synthesizer and vocals), Milan Bubalo (Ableton Live sequencer), and Sana Garić (synthesizer, vocals). Beograd's debut live performance took place at the Belgrade Dadov Theatre where they were joined by an additional member who operated a rhythm machine in the backstage area. For the purpose of subsequent live appearances, the band continued to expand, often including drummer Miloš Obrenović. They primarily performed at Dadov Theatre and the Engineering Students' Club. However, after Slobodan Stanić left the band, Beograd continued as a trio. To compensate for Stanić's absence, they incorporated music samples previously recorded by the band into their live performances. During the spring of 1982, the band released a 7-inch single titled "Sanjaš li u boji" ("Do You Dream In Colour?") backed by "TV" on the B-side. The single, written by Dejan Stanisavljević and arranged by Saša Habić, was released through Jugoton and is now considered a rarity and collector's item due to its limited run of 500 copies. Their debut album was recorded between August and November 1982 at the PGP-RTB Studio V and released shortly after. It featured nine new songs, some with politically provocative lyrics, for example "Kontrolori" ("Controllers"), "Opasne igre" ("Dangerous Games"), and "Mrak" ("Dusk"). All lyrics, except for "Ulice su noćas..." ("Tonight, the Streets Are..."), were written by Dejan Stanisavljević. The record was produced by Saša Habić and is notable for its guest musicians - timpanist Borislav "Bora Longa" Pavićević, avant-garde saxophonist Paul Pignon, and veteran jazz trumpeter Stjepko Gut who contributed to its ‘soul’ feel, creating an unique warm/cold combination. Radio singles "Kontrolori" and "Opasne igre" became major hits and the album reached No.4 on the Dzuboks magazine's Top Ten Yugoslav albums list in March 1983. After the album release Dejan Stanisavljević left the group so they broke up. Following the breakup of Beograd the band members pursued similar musical paths with other groups. Slobodan Stanić joined forces with members of new wave bands Defektno Efektni and Urbana Gerila to form Berlinen Strasse, a band influenced by British post-punk and gothic rock. Ljubodrag Bubalo made guest appearances with Berlinen Strasse and U Škripcu. Ljubodrag and Milan Bubalo formed a synth-pop band Haj'mo, and Milan Bubalo joined Laki Pingvini. Dejan Stanisavljević collaborated with Du Du A and later pursued career in animation. Beograd's music has left a lasting impact and has been recognized and covered by other musicians. In 2011 their debut single was re-released on 7-inch EP, featuring both tracks from the original single as well as instrumental demo versions of songs recorded during the band's demo phase. To celebrate its 40th anniversary of its original release, Matrix Music Arhiv is thrilled to announce the profesionally remastered re-release of this synth-pop/cold wave masterpiece on 180g coloured vinyl.

    Selofan is the Greek term for Cellophane, a thin, transparent sheet, protecting items, keeping them fresh and allowing them to breathe while in storage. The music of the duo from Athens (Greece) is transparent, fresh and takes your breath away. It is strictly analogue, though alongside the synthesizers, drum-machines and loops a bass line, a dreamy piano and saxophone melody may surprise you. The female voice narrates about love and the loss of it, about death and the fear of it, about sexuality and the repression of it, about addictions, psychological weaknesses or strengths, all our own personal ghosts, which distinguish humans from other species. The power and tenderness of the male vocals penetrate your senses directly. Label: Fabrika Barcode: 702038251767

Στιχουργικά, περισσότερο κατασταλαγμένος από ποτέ και χωρίς να χάνει τον αυτοσαρκασμό του, καταθέτει 17* ελληνόστιχα τραγούδια, που υμνούν την αρχή και το τέλος του έρωτα, την ελπίδα και την απελπισία και αναμετριούνται με την πατριαρχία, την βαρεμάρα της καθημερινότητας, το κοινωνικό τέλμα και τον θάνατο. Ο Τζίμης Πολιούδης ηχογράφησε το άλμπουμ, τον Ιούνιο του 2022, απομονωμένος στο σπίτι του, αφουγκραζόμενος προσωπικά αλλά και εξωτερικά ερεθίσματα και γεγονότα. Η συνηθισμένη του δημιουργική μοναχικότητα σ’ αυτό τον δίσκο διακόπτεται από ενδιαφέρουσες συνεργασίες: η Nalyssa Green συμμετέχει στο ντουέτο «Αποσμητικό», ο Θωμάς Στρατάκης (Green Was Greener) συνυπογράφει την μουσική στα κομμάτια «Μελλοντικέ Μου Εαυτέ» και «Τι Θα Γίνει» και ο Κώστας Θεοδωρίδης έχει γράψει τους στίχους στο «Ανώδυνο».

    After almost a decade since the last issue, Nowhere zine is back! A slicker and cleaner look, with a more electric and electronic sound.
