Igor – umf (4×7″) (Release August 28)


The box “Umf” with four vinyls is a tribute to two major sources of inspiration: the Dadaist Hugo Ball and the German kraut pioneers Cluster. Featuring some sci-fi (crackling movie music from the 50’s) and mixed percussion from Asia (Java, Japan, Korea). Somewhere out on the periphery, Ball and Cluster meet in a common idea: That everything has a sound, and most sounds can be music. This is actually the original format from 1949, when the record companies demanded a little more from their listeners. At that time they were forced to choose the playing order by stacking the discs on top of each other on the designed gramophone player. Long before today’s playlists. Continue reading

Llarks – Come and Close Your Eyes


Llarks is back with his third album on Tape Lamour!
Recorded throughout 2018 these songs represent Llark’s music at it’s most beautiful. From the opening swirl of “Imagine”, the grand melodies of the title track, and the searing heartbroken guitar line of “Ghost Lake Acrobat”, Come and Close Your Eyes establishes itself as a simply gorgeous and heartfelt album. The atmosphere continues with the immaculate roar of the aptly titled “Squallflowers”, and the delicate chime of the equally apt title “Lullachime”. By the time the final drone of “Virga Blue” fades we hope you will be reminded that all forms of music can be a steadfast hope in the face of challenge. Continue reading
