Baldruin – ‘Miniaturen’ C32 5€
Balruin’s newest album emerges from the pits of the oneiric, capturing throughout 21 tracks an abundance of shadowy and fleeting impressions as if collected during a late night state of unconsciousness. The album’s German title “Miniaturen“ translates as “miniatures“ and fits like a black velvet glove to Baldruin’s music. Over the past few years Johannes Schebler recorded and released a secret library of small and scary sounds and this album adds another chapter to the Book of Baldruin. Sonic sketches assembled with dreamlike confidence to keep you one foot from the grave. Pro-duplicated cassette with a download card. Edition of 60.
Zarabatana – ‘Fogo na Carne’ C40 5€
Zarabatana are a Portuguese trio based in Lisbon. Through an intense process of live improvisation and the exploration of various musical vocabularies they have crafted an unique brand of ritualistic free jazz, which they now present with “Fogo na Carne”, the group’s first release. The fiercely detailed and expressive rhythmic section of Carlos Godinho and Bernardo Álvares lay the ground for the spacious and meditative trumpet of Yaw Tembe across six diverse and evolving tracks. Expect to be absorbed by some archaic impulses of praise to flesh, earth and fire! Pro-duplicated cassette with a download card. Edition of 100.
