Yep.. at this moment I really believe that my earphones have integrated with my ear canals. Second album from Poppy (known also as a member of Hidden Orchestra) and second one I own. I already know that I’m going to spend numerous hours with this modern “classical” album like I did with the debut one. Yep..this sounds awesome, I suggest that you listen this with your headphones on and you might have this same problem with ear canals as I […]
Hmm.. Now I have to say that here we have a very interesting split album, interesting indeed. Cooper’s Quartet & The Dictaphones have been one of my favorite groups since their first album, Parole De Navarre, and I have enjoyed their dark atmospheric soundscapes since then. With Witxes this split release is near perfection. These tunes would fit perfectly on some of those upcoming Twin Peaks episodes.. Dark, droned, experimental & almost brooding atmosphere on this release (with some hazy jazz […]
Beware, this album is about classical, modern classical. Carlos and piano, what else you need? It’s pointless for me to say anything about this album, anything else than it’s so beautiful.. I could listen this artist playing his instrument for hours and hours and hours.. Few years ago I was amazed about his debut album “The Monarch And The Viceroy” and now this latest.. I like this, I love this. Still available from Denovali (limited to 250 copies on this […]
Look what I got here, latest album from Terminal Sound System. And yes, I really like this strange record with acoustic guitars, haunting vocals and most of all this totally weird mixture of drone/synth/doom/everything.. It took a while to understand the beauty of all this and now I just want to hear more of these twisted tunes. Nice, really nice one. These clear copies are limited to 150 pieces and available from Denovali. If you prefer your vinyl on black, they […]
Haa.. Latest from Thomas Köner, released by Denovali. Beautiful nearly minimalistic modern classical exploration of piano. Headphone-music at it’s best. This is just a third Köner album I own and it means that I have to get familiar with his previous releases too. Beautiful & fragile music to balance this hectic state of surrounding realm. This clear version is limited to 150 copies (there is also 350 copies on white vinyl available) and You can get your copy from the […]
Tape Measure Kid (Hellmut Neidhardt & Jim Campbell) and “Ours Is A Stubborn Monster “, the other part of their double debut. As I mentioned on my previous post, I’m glad that Denovali released these twelve-inches. Experimental ambient is the name of the game on these two separated releases. Limited to 100 copies with bonus CD and available from Denovali (surprise). Recommended releases, both. —
One of those records I got from Denovali yesterday. Tape Measure Kid (Hellmut Neidhardt & Jim Campbell) and their double debut on two separated twelve-inch + CDs filled with bonus material. This one is called “Zero Is An Even Number” the other one “Ours Is A Stubborn Monster” (more about that other release later). Thank god this was released by Denovali, otherwise I would have missed this awesome duo totally. Limitation of 100 copies makes this one even more interesting.. […]
This came yesterday from Denovali and surprisingly, it is awesome! This is the second album from this artist and after one spin I’m sold, again. If You did not already know, Mevel is also known as a member of The Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones (dark-jazz collective). This album is more droned ambient, its beautiful and has this certain atmosphere on it. Dark and waiting. This colorway is limited to 150 copies and still available from Denovali (I’m little surprised […]
Oh, this came today. In this 12″ Albanese’s tunes have been reworked by Saffronkeira, Franz Kirmann (from Piano Interrupted), John Lemke and Cassegrain (never heard this artist before). It was nice to hear how these tunes have been modified by other artists. Job well done. I like this twelve-inch, it’s different but distantly familiar.. hard to explain what I mean. Lovely one, released by Denovali and this clear red version is limited to 150 copies. I like this. — —
Another one from Matthew Collings. Like his debut this record does not follow any “familiar” song structures and that makes this one a very interesting journey. Using strings and brass elements on this record makes it sound comforting when the wall of sounds, cracks took over. This record requires very intensive listening moments. This is not music for elevators, this is music for you and your headphones. Limited to 150 copies on silver and 200 pieces on clear vinyl, available […]
More treasures from Denovali. Kirmann, known as the other half of Piano Interrupted and his solo album “Meridians”. As always, I’m astonished about the fact that Denovali keeps releasing quality albums like this, one after another. I really enjoy the cinematic atmosphere on this album, same time sad but filled with some strange light. There’s still hope. Surely this album is going to get serious spinning in our household, I can promise that. Limited to 150 copies on clear gold […]
Hey, this is music played with Piano, music played with Cello. And the point is that this is honey to my ears, beautiful modern classical music.. I’m not an expert of any kind when talking about music, genres, styles but I know when I’m hearing something amazing, something that touches me. This record is one of those, surely. I just wonder how can this album still be available, why it’s not sold out already (least that limited colored version)? This […]
Woah! I didn’t see this coming. I know that Fluid Audio released this on CD last year but I skipped that automatically because of the “wrong” format. Damn I’m happy that I purchased this now on vinyl, released by another awesome record label, Denovali. And once again I gambled, bought this without hearing a note before today (little white lie here, actually I did listen few seconds from the first track before I purchased this) .. I’m in love with […]
One more beautiful ambient/drone album added to my collection. This one came today along few other treasures from Denovali. I just realized that this is 5th album from this artist I own.. hmmm. Atmospheric, melodic and very tense record this is. Record for late autumn/early winter days. There’s something hopeless and dark buried beneath and oh, that’s what I like. Limited to 150 copies on clear gold and 350 copies on black vinyl, both available from Denovali and yes, recommended […]
Oh, the other one from Talvihorros, “Eaten Alive” which also came yesterday from Denovali. Sounding.. beautiful, simple as that. Little do I know about ambient, drone, experimental music but one thing I know, my ears do not lie. Haunting piece of modern classical, drone embed experimental music. Dark & fragile this certainly is. Limited to 150 copies on swamp green/royal blue vinyl and 200 copies on black vinyl. Highly recommended and both color variations are still (I just wonder why) […]
This is one of those picks I didn’t listen before purchase. Debut album from Never Sol (Sára Vondrášková), and now I have to admit that I was totally blown out first time I placed this record under the needle.. I was expecting something totally different (some kind of experimental-field recording-darkened-ambient or something) but all I can hear are these beautifully performed songs and that voice.. damn. Denovali has done it again and that is why I love every release this company […]
Even though this is just a twelve-inch EP with 3 tracks + 3 different remixes of those songs, I can’t get enough of this! I like the structure on these tunes and I totally love the way he handles the piano. This release earned to be engraved on vinyl and big thanks goes to his record company, (surprisingly) Denovali. Just give this release a moment of your time, it’s totally worth it. Limited to 150 copies on clear gold and […]
This album has been around for a while now and finally I decided to purchase it. I can not find any logical reason why I haven’t ordered this album before.. strange. But now it’s here and certainly has it own place on my collection (there’s still few albums on my “wantlist” from this artist). Experimental, droned ambient seasoned with cello, violin, guitars etc. Beautiful journey through cosmic soundscapes. This is limited to 150 copies on white and 200 copies on […]
Second 12″ from Moon Zero, released by Denovali. Yesterday I posted about Moon Zero’s first twelve-inch and today it’s time for this one. In my opinion this one is darker than the first one.. hard to say. I really love these tunes so I can’t say anything critical about these releases. For me these two twelve-inches are droned dark ambient at its best. This is limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions still […]
Speechless with this one, absolutely breathtaking release. Is this dark ambient or drone, I don’t care. Sounds awesome and the truth is that I purchased this one without listening a single note from this release. Beautiful.. just listen to it and you might realize what I mean. Limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 on black vinyl, available from Denovali. No words.. —
I like this one (as I like every other release from Petrels I own). Droned ambient and once again quality release from Denovali. Haunting beauty this record certainly is, my record for these rainy/lazy summer days. I know that I always keep praising Denovali releases but the point is that you can be sure what you get, quality. This release is limited to 150 copies on coke bottle green and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are available from […]
Finally this LP has been repressed (this time by Denovali). Originally this was released by E-vinyl Records back in 2008 but the reason I never purchased this was simply that it was released on picture disc. Now this massive debut album from this doom/post/hardcore band is in my hairy hands. This repress is limited to 150 copies on clear w/ blue splatter and 350 copies on black vinyl. Clear one is sold out from the source but still you can get […]
Everybody who have visited this blog knows my strange obsession for records released by Denovali. I can’t resist purchasing every single record they are putting out (well, of course there are some items I have missed..). It’s all about the quality, and services this record company provides (and awesome artists). Simple as that. Now it seems that there are some other record companies walking this same path. Cardinal Fuzz, awesome label releasing psychedelic etc. stuff (missing few items, but I […]
Hmm.. The Alvaret Ensemble collaborated with Icelandic artists hmm.. Different kind of modern classical album with haunting poems. Very intense and ethereal soundscapes with beautiful voices. For some this may be little hard to handle but for me this is one of those reasons why I listen to music. The joy of finding something new, something you have never heard before. Nice. Time to put my headphones on and let the music guide me to sweet oblivion! Limited to 150 […]
I do not know what is it with Denovali, where they find these artists and records to release? This time collaboration between Anna Von Hausswolff and Matti Bye and the result is totally beautiful, strange, ethereal and obscure.. record (may I call this dream-pop even though there’s something dark and sinister lurking behind). I want more! This is limited to 150 copies on clear and 350 copies on black vinyl. Available from the source, Denovali. Recommended and one of those […]
Last one from that Denovali treasure package today. Now I have to say that this one I purchased totally blindfolded. But when talking about Denovali releases, you can’t go wrong. This seems to be the debut album from Frederico Albanese and then comes the best part! Piano. There are two instruments I love most of all, piano and banjo. Beautiful record and certainly this one will have heavy rotation within next few days (I might have some kind of fetish […]
Then we have this one. Few months ago I bought Origamibiro’s collection from Denovali, and since it arrived I have been waiting for this one. And.. what can I even say, beautiful record, this floats somewhere beyond modern classical, experimental ambient I do not even know where.. Maybe it’s too early to say but this will certainly be on my top 20 records this year. I like this a lot and it’s purely your choice whether you like it or […]
Treasure package from Denovali arrived today. I start with this third album from Petrels (Oliver Barrett). No surprise that this is some kind of strange and experimental ambient. This is music made for headphones and surely this album is going to take you far away.. I really like to listen these tunes my headphones on, eyes closed. Once again brilliant album from Petrels, and once again amazing release by Denovali (quality guaranteed). This is limited to 150 copies on gold/blue […]
Never heard of Origamibiro before? Don’t worry, you are not alone because I had no idea about this duo nor their music before Denovali announced that they are going to release this collection few months ago. Have to say that this is awesome collection, four records full of experimental ambient sounds first time on vinyl and with reasonable prize tag (if you are going to purchase this from the source, Denovali). This is nice (really nice) way to get familiar […]
Carlos Cipa & Sophia Jani with their twelve-inch EP, Relive. And surprisingly there is no doubt about the quality of this release (Denovali). Oh yes, this is music played with piano. I have become very attached of listening music played with this magical instrument. I like, I mean I really like this record. This is limited to 150 copies on silver and 150 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are still available from magical Denovali. Go for it! —
Finally, this one. Alicia Merz and her new album “This Kindly Slumber” (released by Denovali). I have all her albums released on vinyl, surprisingly. One of my favorite artists, if not the best one. I still can remember purchasing her debut album on vinyl “Without the World”, awesome record, pure gold. And since that moment it has been obvious that I’m going to purchase every single album she is going to release. Recommended release once again from this (underrated, in […]
Last one of today (what an awesome begin for this week), and I can say that this one is the winner of this week already! Amazing collaboration between these two Sardinian musicians. Within two last years Eugenio Caria (Saffronkeira) has released handful of incredible records on vinyl (thanks to Denovali) and yes, I have them all. If you like modern experimental classic with most beautiful jazz tunes seasoned with some electronics, this one is for you. This could be “The […]
And another one from Ensemble Economique, “Light That Comes, Light That Goes”. Like the title of the album. This one is also released by Denovali Records. Awesome music released by awesome record company. I’m really amazed how good bands/artists Denovali has under its wings. This is my third LP from Ensemble economique and surely this is not the last one. Recommended release is this one too. Limited to 150 copies on sea blue and 200 copies on black vinyl. Available from […]
This one made me speechless.. the post-apocalyptic atmosphere on this beauty is overwhelming. Filled with radio signals and absolutely beautiful soundscapes. And once again I have to Thank Denovali for releasing records like this. Awesome piece of art. Limited to 150 copies on red and 200 copies on black vinyl, available from the source, Denovali. Highly recommended!
2 x Uuuh.. And yet again, the latest album from Thisquietarmy. This is pure experimental-post-something-shoegazing-drone- love! I’m so glad that I found this artist few years ago. For me his albums have been a way to escape this modern hectic world, just place your headphones on and start the journey across the universe. Really love these seas of sounds and can’t do anything else than recommend, highly! Limited to 150 copies on ultraclear and 200 copies on black vinyl. Available from […]
Uuuh.. one of my favorite artist. This was originally released 2008 on CD by Elevation Recordings but now this release has been finally pressed on vinyl for the first time by, Denovali. I really love this one, beautiful soundscapes, drony ambient, the feeling on this record. If you like this kind of stuff, I recommend to purchase everything this artist has ever released. This is limited to 150 copies on this clear/white and 200 copies on black vinyl. Available, surprise, from […]
Seems that this week begins with few records from Denovali Records. This Iroha & Fragment. collaboration has been on my “wanted” list for so long that finally I decided to purchase this one. And once again, pure quality album released from Denovali. And about record itself, shoegazing-metal-post-something and certainly this one will have several spins under the needle. Limited to 150 copies on this color and 350 copies on regular black vinyl. Pick your copy from Denovali.
I had to exception with this latest album from Celeste. Had to purchase picture disc edition even though I do not really much appreciate idea of picture discs. Well, this looked nice enough and I’ve always loved visual side (and musical, of course) of Celeste’s records. This beauty is released by Denovali and quality is awesome s usual. This picture disc version is limited to 200 copies and sold out already but, there is 2nd press available from the source, […]
This little beauty arrived today, droned ambient album. And yes, this is released by Denovali (one of my favorite record companies). There is a place and time for this record, it’s calm and very rewarding at the end. Oh, I like. This is limited to 150 copies on this color and 200 copies on black vinyl. Available from Denovali. Recommended (if you like ambient/drone).
I was just cleaning my mailbox and went through my order history with Denovali Records (distro items and records they have released) and decided to put this list here. I might consider myself as a decent customer.. I think so. And here we go, from the first Denovali release I have ordered to the latest: Les Fragments De La Nuit – Musique Du Crépuscule (Yellow Vinyl w/ Brown Haze) 12” Bersarin Quartett – S/t (180g Clear w/ Red Haze) 2×12” […]
Surprise, surprise. Once again winner from Denovali catalogue. This Piano Interrupted’s latest album came few days ago and having heavy rotation right now as I’m writing this. Love their debut and I know right now that this love is going to last. Once again have to thank Denovali for releasing this kind of music. If some one is interested about limitation of this record, there are 150 copies on electric blue (here) and 350 copies on black vinyl (here). Choice […]
Oh, this came from Denovali few days ago.. Stunning third album from Dale Cooper Quartet & The Dictaphones.. I’m already in love with this one. Music for darkening evenings and hopeless nights. Recommended! This is limited to 150 copies on white and 350 copies on black vinyl. Both versions are still available from Denovali. Go and buy, now!
And another one from Sebastian Plano. Do not need words to describe how good this is. You should listen this for yourself. Limited to 150 on ultraclear and 350 on black vinyl. And where can you purchase this? Denovali is the answer. Run, run.
This artist is a great example how excellent records Denovali puts out. Is this modern classical, I do not know but it sounds amazing. Thank you Sebastian, for your music and thanks to Denovali releasing this! Limited to 150 copies and 350 on black vinyl. Help yourself and get this amazing recording from Denovali!
This is also one of those records from my “wantlist”, have been on that list for years.. Finally I “managed” to purchase this one. This is 3rd pressing of this record and damn what a beauty this record is.. when you hold this one against the light, it looks like this: Awesome record indeed. Limited to 200 copies on this form and 300 on classic black vinyl. Both versions available from.. Denovali (surprise, surprise).
And another Denovali release. And this one.. breathtaking. I just can’t understand where they find these artists.. And I’m so thankful that they do. Limited t 150 copies on clear red and 350 on black vinyl. Both still available from the source, Denovali. Just listen and make your decision. Recommended.
This one has been on my “wantlist” so loooooong.. Now I decided to purchase this strange record. Experimental avant-garde jazz-noise, not for everyone that’s for sure. I like these kind of strange records. This is limited to 150 copies on white and 200 copies on black vinyl. Both versions available from Denovali. Get it.
Floex.. new friend to me. This is released by Denovali (surprise). Actually I got two shipments from Denovali today and I begin with this one. As I said before, this is totally new artist to me.. and what a little record this is, experimental electronic tunes and so beautiful.. Limited to 150 copies on this color and 350 copies on basic black vinyl. Both versions available from the source, Denovali. Love.
This came yesterday. Once again one of those records I’ve been hunting down for some time. Denovali release and some might already know my obsession with Denovali stuff. Limited to 100 copies on this color variation and 200 copies on black vinyl. If I remember right, first press is sold out from the label but there’s second press (limited to 200 copies on ultra clear vinyl with black and white splatter) available from Denovali. Recommended.
And yet another find from Discogs. Early Denovali releases I have been looking for. And I really like this one, damn. This was limited to 250 copies on this color and 250 copies on clear vinyl with red haze. This is those already sold out items but you can still find yours if you look around the web..
