Mio / Duct Hearts 7inch on brokenglasses

We are proud to announce that we will be part of an upcoming 7inch release. Two German bands uniting on one little piece of wax: The two-piece Mio from Leipzig is contributing the song “Ungenügend”, whereas Daniel from Wishes On A Plane adds his song “Schlafen” under his one-piece-band-alias Duct Hearts.
As we are only a part of this release there are several other great labels we are joint-working: Lala from Leipzig, Canot Pneumatique from Cologne, Russian Folk Stories from UK and Time As A Color from Munich.
There will be 500 copies with hand-screened covers, we are back mid-90s and love it for sure. Expect this to be out soon.


Beginning of fall = Smog appreciation

OK, it’s getting cold and stormy outside, lots of rain and grey clouds all over my head. This is the right time for one of the greatest songwriter i know, Bill Callahan. To tell you the truth i do not really like his new record called “Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle” released on Drag City, so it is not a bad record at all, but the records he released under his alias Smog are way better, they are brilliant!
As i love to share great music with you i post some videos i just recently found during my still ongoing “Smog-mania”, enjoy.

See Sunny Day Real Estate performing “Seven”!

I do not need to tell you anything about the band, Sunny Day Real Estate are one of the most influential bands of the mid-90s from Seattle. After 15 years they are again touring in the USA with the original members.

All these memories about classics like “Song About An Angel”, ugh, the whole “Diary” is such a fucking great record, one of the best Sub Pop has ever released. Due to SDRE’s new tour the label has re-issued “Diary”, get it on 2 x 12″ if you haven’t until now!
Go on reading to see them playing live.

Preorder Titan’s new album at React With Protest

React With Protest Records has just announced a new preorder deal: You can get the new LP of the Canadian Titan called “Colossus” on coloured vinyl for 10 Euros plus postage. The record should be done just in time for their release party on November 13th. This is even better than the glorious 4-song EP “The Chrysanthemum Pledge” which was released on React With Protest Records in 2007.

Records you ordered long ago…

…which seemed to be never released at all and you even forgot about them, until you finally get them from your mailman are always make me happy. This record is something really special as I ordered it like years ago, I think it was 2003. Moreover it contains one of my favourite bands, Takaru.


Takaru / The Assistant / This Ship Will Sink

I think the CD version of this 3-way split of Takaru, The Assistant and This Ship Will Sink was released in 2003 or 2004, but the vinyl version never saw the light of day. 3 really great bands, possibly not with their best songs, but a damn nice release and lovely reminder of the “old days”.

Watch some videos of the bands (sorry, I haven’t found a better one for This Ship Will Sink) in the following. Continue reading ‘Records you ordered long ago…’
