Out now: Celeste - Nihiliste(s) repress + John Lemke vinyl

Beitrag von denovali records » 11.09.2013, 18:43


The Celeste – Nihiliste(s) Cd/ LP repress and the Floex – Gone 10'' preorders left the Denovali headquarter a while ago.

The John Lemke vinyl version should finally arrive in the course of this week. Sorry again for the massive delay because of the test pressing issues and thanks for your patience.

Floex produced two new music videos. You can find them via the following links. Enjoy.

::: the time schedule for Denovali Swingfest Essen 2013 is online now
::: tickets + further details: www.denovali.com/swingfest
::: The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation just decided to present you a one time only unique special performance at this year's festival:

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation are well known for their atmospheric recordings and dream inducing live events. After several releases on labels such as Planet Mu, Ad Noiseam and Denovali, as well as many tours throughout Europe and beyond - a new mutation has emerged. KILIMANFUJI appears as a one-off alchemistic experiment especially designed for the Denovali Swingfest on October 5 2013 in Essen. Original band members Eelco Bosman (guitar + electronics), Hilary Jeffery (trombone + electronics) and Gideon Kiers (drums + electronics) team up with Japanese filmmaker Makino Takashi in a new chemically imbalanced concoction of signals from beyond. Voodoo grooves, vacuum drones and mind expanded cinema!

This week's mailorder update includes new shirts of Omega Massif and The Dale Cooper Quartet, the new Seirom album, a lot of new items from Utech Records, the new God Is An Astronaut, new Agnes Obel 10'' etc.

Thanks a lot for your support.





FINALLY REPRESSED. After three years of waiting CELESTE is closing the gap with a new full length in October 2013. Denovali now offers their very first full album Nihiliste(s) again as a reissue with a new packaging and a slightly different design. From black metal to sludge, from doom to posthardcore - the people love them because they're not copycats - they're not trying to exhaust any genre clichés - they're simply creating their own dark soundscapes with every new record. The result is pure hopelessness and distress. The press said: "A skull crushing three quarters of an hour." "Ten tracks of unrelenting heaviness." "The perfect nightmare." "Twice as long, twice as mean and twice as good as their stunning debut pessimiste(s)." The vinyl version is limited to 500 copies in 2 colors. The cd comes in a new digipak design.

John Lemke is a Glasgow based composer & sound designer, originally from Berlin. Working across a great variety of media he explores music and all things sonic through collaborations, live performance, film sound design and especially his work as a documentary composer for the BBC and Channel 4.

Motivated by fusing elements of his more emotive film composition approach with rhythm and space, John creates a distinctive sound blend on his debut solo album, where percussive, prepared piano collides with abstracted guitar landscapes & disembodied vocal textures to form a danceable, electro-acoustic whole.

Inside the creaking hollows of an attic treasure begins the uncompromising journey of People Do. Eager to devise a more dance oriented sound on his first full length release with Denovali, and contrasting his more ambient, often orchestral film work, John first found inspiration in the idiosyncratic sound world of his grandmother's piano. With a shimmering past in the silent film era of 1920's Berlin, its very fabric was full of anecdotes. But sampling every string and surface, preparing it with kitchen utensils, let alone playing the instrument itself was only the starting point of the intricately woven narrative of People Do.

With a process including techniques of musique concrète, sound design concepts such as worldising (playing back and re-recording sound through a room) and the use of homemade field recordings from all around Europe, the album is filled with depth and a true sense of voyage. This is also reflected in the various locations the record was conceived and recorded in, ranging from Berlin to Bristol, Helsinki to rural Spain and Glasgow, with guest contributions on viola from Kim Moore (Ex-Zoey Van Goey) and Felipe Sumina (saxophone), only for it to be mastered at Durton Studio by Nils Frahm.

John's dedication to ignoring genre boundaries makes for an album impossible yet needless to categorise, echoing its wide ranging influences, but ultimately existing entirely on its own terms. For fans of Four Tet, Boards Of Canada, The Notwist, Hauschka, Pole, Aphex Twin, Lali Puna

On Veronika Vlková's painting for Floex' new EP ''Gone'', the mountain ghosts are watching the flood from the mountain tops which stick out of water. In his latest work Floex is trying to express the melancholic mood of the last days of stability and harmony. While ''Gone'' thematizes instability expressed by the Apocalypse in a ''macroscopic sense'', and musically for Tomáš in the quite traditional way of vocal pieces, the other two short ambient tracks accompanying the title song reflect the theme in different ways.

''Saturnin Fire And The Restless Ocean'' creates a kind of ''microscopic world'' counterpart to ''Gone''. It was inspired by the thoughts on inner harmony by Tomáš' Chinese medicine doctor friend: when mind and heart are in balance, the heart is like shining fire and the mind is like a calm and still ocean. If things are getting unstable, the heart's fire is becoming volatile and the mind's ocean's waves start to swell. While ''Saturnin …'' is a very intimate song on this self-reflection of the personal psychic landscape, it easily becomes a strong epic hymn in the hands of Joe Acheson of Hidden Orchestra. With this, Joe is returning the remix favour on Hidden Orchestra's earlier Denovali Records release ''Flight'', which included Floex' ''Dust Remix''. It is great to listen to another offspring of the continuing dialogue between these musical mates.

There are more things that all songs of this release have in common - the typical sound of Floex' Petrof piano. It endorses the melancholic and ethereal mood of the EP songs, and the final four-hand piano piece ''Time To Go'' makes no exception. It includes field recordings grasping the theatrical ''farewell'' scene from a sound installation at the Brixen Fortress during the Manifesta festival. This song was originally created from the four-hand composition of Tomáš and his pianist friend Jiří Libánský, who met during their improvisation project ''Orlak''.

The title song ''Gone'' was especially composed for the Floex live vocalist Sára Vondrášková of Never Sol and meant to be performed on concerts, and it indeed soon become the pivotal song of Floex' playlist. The lyrics were written by Tomáš' long term collaborator Anya Stuart who besides being a singer, writer and musician works also as a movie director. When she heard the song she immediately offered Tomáš to make a video clip for it. Currently living in Paris, it no surprise that the main inspiration source for the video was the medieval French 'Apocalypse Tapestry' in Angers nearby Paris. Working with her photographer friend Michal Ureš behind the camera, they created free contemporary reinterpretations of selected scenes of the tapestry based on super slow motion shootings. This perfectly exemplifies the idea behind the song, a very odd moment in our life we don't recognise since it is happening very slowly from our personal point of view but very fast from the point of view of mankind. People are still behaving as if nothing would happen or change, but the fire is already behind their doors, the old times have already gone.

''Gone'' is closing a certain period of Floex' production which started with his 2nd full length album ''Zorya'' in 2011. After getting such a great feedback on this release, Tomáš decided to get back to it, pick up his favorite track ''Veronika's Dream'' and give it a little bit more attention. The result of this effort you can find as a downloadable bonus track accompanying this EP: a remix of ''Veronika's Dream'' by Dikolson, Tomáš favourite producer, and general iconic figure of the electronic music scene in Prague. Moreover, after about a year of preparation, a video clip for the original song was made. About 20 people, headed by director Tomáš Hájek, visual artist Anna Krtičová and Veronika Vlková herself created rather a short movie inspired by Tomáš Dvořák's crazy surrealistic imaginary: the one-eyed Veronika is eaten by a wolf and inside of his stomach a floorball match is happening. She fights against her psychological antipode for her missing eye and wins just to uncover deeper sides of her existence.

The 10'' comes in a special thick gatefold sleeve, on two different vinyl colors and with a free download code
