Luxuriant first single taken from the new Co-pilgrim LP “Moon Lagoon” that’s due for release on Farm Music in June and available to pre-order now including a rather nice Deluxe blue vinyl gatefold LP version that comes with a bonus “Co-vers” album.
The video was conceived and created by Finnish visual artist Jussi Virkkumaa:
“It could be the material left to cutting room floor from the movie ‘Burning Love’ and instructional video about how to avoid housefire when using broken videoprojector?
Because I don’t really know what Cylindrical fire-escapes means in this context other than a wish of someone not suffering from love and trying to offer a quick solution which I think would be falling in love again, I wanted to create a kind of visualizer for that. There are those firetruck- or policecar emergency lights rolling.
It’s also about of rhythm and shape, based on Hans Richter’s old dadaist/avant-garde movie named Rhythmus 21.
So maybe in one sentence: It´s an experimental visual homemade lovestory. “
Shelflife (USA) and Discos de Kirlian (Spain) present the new six track mini-LP from Spain’s When Nalda Became Punk entitled Those Words Broke Our Hearts coming March 10th on limited edition on a yellow transparent 10″ vinyl and digital formats.
Those Words Broke Our Hearts was recorded and produced in Vigo (Spain) by Bruno Murmura. “Hanging Out With Imogen”, the first single from the mini-LP, is a pure-pop song filled with energetic jangly guitars and bittersweet synths. “Long before” takes us into that kind of sadness and melancholy that impregnates the albums from Sarah Records. On the other hand, “Big Whoop” and its uplifting guitar lines and vocal harmonies, is full of light and hope. “New Year’s Day”, with its catchy synth chorus, brings back the nostalgic feeling that sometimes hits you at the end and start of another year. “Angela” is a direct, immediate pop song, about the teenage anxiety of trying to live for the moment and don’t spoil any second of life. “A Midnight Run” closes the mini-LP, a spoken word song with hypnotic music and a story narrated by the deep voice of Edward Forth from the English indiepop band Finmark.
