new release: 'Blue Caves' by Melquìades

The latest release on Francis Harris’ Scissor & Thread label out of Brooklyn is another exercise in deep and meditative atmospheres.

 

The label, comprised of a tight knit collective of multi-faceted composers, vocalists and instrumentalists, always strives to develop new projects based on a shared aesthetic, and this five track EP is both boundary pushing and fully synchronized with the label’s approach.


With Melquíades' 'Blue Caves' Melbourne based Composer and Sound Designer Alexander Albrecht presents his solo debut EP following on from the 'Tidal River' album he released as part of the Albrecht La'Brooy duo.

new signing: Cedric

The Dresden-based band just released their long-awaited debut album 'Levity' via Undressed Records.

 

Cedric play intense songs between the poles of post rock, alternative and post punk - formed by impressive walls of sound and furious desire. The three-piece was founded in 2013 in Dresden, GER as it plunged into one of its many jam sessions to come, which still to this day form the basis of their songs - driven by heavy, glimmering guitars, angry grooves and vocals between soulful and gloomy.


In 2015, Cedric released their debut single 'Communion=Hoax' and embarked on a tour through music clubs in Germany and UK, supported bands like New Model Army and played at the famous german Taubertal Festival with an attending audience of 12,000 people.


The debut album 'Levity' was released on Undressed Records to great critical acclaim in european music magazines and radio stations. The outstanding singles of this output met positive overall popularity with rock fans.


As one of the most gripping and promising german newcomer bands in the postgenre Cedric are currently presenting their work on their headlining-tour through Germany and Europe.

Just out: 'Alma' by Tim Engelhardt & BOg

Poker Flat go for the jugular with this blazing collaborative EP.

Tim Engelhardt is one of the hottest talents around, forging a hugely prolific career from his hometown of Cologne, Germany. Just recently Tim released his debut album 'Moments of Truth' on Poker Flat followed by a remix EP.


Teaming up with the hugely talented Bogdan Tanase aka BOg from Romania, the boys put together a strong musical statement. [...]


'Alma' also showcases the pair’s ears for dynamics - each element in the track perfectly crafted and mixed - the result is an emotional dance floor experience that’s more than the sum of its parts. Turning up the heat, 'Astronauts' kicks of with a thumping groove that builds and mutates across the track - resulting in a driving, powerful weapon for a multitude of situations.“ (words: Inhale/UK)

new signing: Akua Naru

We are very proud to announce, that we just signed singer, rapper, poet, social activist, Akua Naru who recently released her highly anticipated, soulful new album 'The Blackest Joy' via SPV.


The 11-track project is her third studio album and the follow up to 2015’s 'The Miner's Canary'.


The American raised and now Germany-based artist and activist, Naru, intertwines elements of African traditional music with her modern Jazz rap style.The Blackest Joy is a stunning musical journey with themes of race, identity, the role of women and femininity. It takes the listener through compelling stories of triumph through tribulation and the arrival at power and joy through struggle. It is a composition of music to celebrate black joy and an aesthetic homage to the power of the human spirit in its strength to overcome.


Through her music, this gifted artist is committed to spreading the idea of multiculturalism while celebrating the culture she was born into. Through the release of 'The Blackest Joy' and on her international tour which kicked off in the United Kingdom on May 1, Akua brings her message to the masses. She adds, “The Blackest Joy is an album that celebrates the beauty; the bounty of black joy. 'The Blackest Joy' is a journey along the spectrum of black expression- from joy and love, to the possibility of hope”.

 

'The Blackest Joy' was released via The Urban Era/ SPV April 27th!

Borusiade announces debut album!

'A Body' will be out March 9th through Cómeme.


The Bucharest-born artist, real name Miruna Boruzescu, has close ties to Matias Aguayo's Cómeme label - she released her first-ever record, 2016's 'Jeopardy' EP, via the outlet, followed by a second EP, 'Silent', last year. The new record, which spans seven tracks, covers similar ground, with nods to synth pop, techno, EBM and new wave.

Out Now: 'Carnival Days' by Shiraz Lane

Shiraz Lane return to italian Frontiers Records for the release of their second album!

 

Shiraz Lane have been extremely busy throughout 2017 composing, producing and recording their second album in collaboration with the Swedish producer Per Aldeheim (Def Leppard, Soilwork, Lambretta).


Shiraz Lane personifies creative variety, which resonates through their double-edged guitar sound (produced by lead guitarist Jani Laine and rhythm guitarist Miki Kalske), groovy-yet-solid ground pounding (Ana Willman drums & Joel Alex bass) and the unmistakably high-soaring melodies chanted by lead singer Hannes Kett. Despite their relative youth, they are already veterans of the underground circuit in their homeland and have developed a reputation for being uncompromising, loud, and most of all, the genuine article.


Although wearing inspiration and paying homage to their predecessors like Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses, their sound and music is destined to develop into something unique. Members of Halestorm, The 69 Eyes, Amorphis, Children Of Bodom, Lordi and Sonic Syndicate have all praised the band’s live efforts.

new Francis Harris Solo EP out since February 23rd

'Minor Forms' is out on Scissor & Thread since February 23rd and includes remixes by Valentino Mora.

 

Francis Harris’ own output has gone from tightly wound tech house cuts as Adultnapper in the early days, sublime deep house as Frank & Tony, intricate and expressive musical journeys as evident in his two solo-albums 'Leland' and 'Minutes Of Sleep', and ambient shoegaze with two Aris Kindt albums, co-produced with Gabe Hedrick. Most recently Harris branched out with a new label - Kingdoms - a home for his love of a more adventurous sound.


Now we are proud to present his new solo single, the first since the release of 'Minutes of Sleep', 'Minor Forms' which includes two remarkable remixes by Valentino Mora.
