Pre-Order Nihiling / Zinnschauer / Locust Fudge & new releases (Monophona / Dave & Mighty)



first we have to say, we had a brilliant festival weekend with two fantastic evenings in Mannheim and Bielefeld.

Thanks to all the bands and helping hands and to everyone who joined.

Be prepared for the next issue.

And now some facts about our new releases:

To order the following stuff, just visit our shop with all details and prices and also some special-priced bundles for your pleasure:

Just klick here.

MONOPHONA – Ribbons/Black on black – Digital single (Boje 002)

Please welcome MONOPHONA our newest crew-member.
They are from Luxembourg and present dark-athmospheric trip-hop/indietronic.
This digital only single is a preview for the upcoming album we will release in January 2015.
Take a listen here.

DAVE & MIGHTY- American Jesus / Lori Meyers 7″ (Kutter 024)

third issue of our coverversions-single-series

Punkrockbands doing coverversions of popsongs… been there, done that.
DAVE & MIGHTY turn the table. Both, grown up in the punkrockscene of Bielefeld, take their
favourite songs from bands like Bad Religon, NoFx, Millencolin and the like and transfer it into
90ies Eurodance-Style.
On the debut 7“, that will be released by Kapitän Platte in October, it is „American Jesus“ by Bad
Religion and „Lori Meyers“ by NoFX.
Of course DAVE & MIGHTY are doing that with a wink, but musically they’re definitely playing in
the same league with Aqua, Ace of Base or Culture Beat.
The 7“ comes in a silkscreen sleeve you can open fan-shaped and is limited to 500 copies

First 100 on colored vinyl. We sold them exclusively on the record release party last weekend.
But we have enough for you left to order.

Take a listen here.

And now the pre-order stuff:

Nihiling – s/t LP/CD (Kutter 025 / Release Date: 14.11.2014)

out on November 14th

Nihiling seem to originate from a genre, generally referred to as “Post-Rock”. The hype of that genre is over, but Nihiling are here to stay. The band has changed a lot since their first release in 2006, but their origins in Post-Rock are still evident. Quiet melodies alternate with heavy parts. Beauty is always something that can be destroyed anytime.

This is music that can be labeld as “sad” or “melancholic”, but that is indeed just one impression of Nihiling’s new album. The four musicians behind Nihiling originate from Hamburg and don’t care about genres or labels anyway; it’s just all about writing music that is exciting and moving.

But nonetheless you can’t ignore the musical proximity to Progrock in the vein of Oceansize, even though Indie-Pop influences are all over Nihiling’s third self titled album. Therefore we witness on “Do Not Make Me Axe You Again” what might happen if someone provided The XX with a distortion-pedal.

Vinyl: Ltd. Edition of 500 incl. insert and download code. First 100 on colored vinyl.

CD comes in a digipack.

Listen to one song here.

ZINNSCHAUER – Hunger.Stille LP/CD (Kutter 026 / Release Date: 28.11.2014)

First full length of our screamo-songwriter.

Fully packed with lots of emotions and fantastic melodies only Zinnschauer can find on an acoustic guitar.

Vinyl comes with inlet and download code. Limited edition of 500, first 100 on colored vinyl.

CD comes in digi-sleeve incl. inlet with lyrics.

LOCUST FUDGE – Flush/Royal flush 2LP (Kutter 027 / Release Date: 18.11.)

In 1991 LOCUST FUDGE was founded by Schneider (a.k.a. Dirk Dresselhaus of Schneider TM, Angel, ex-Hip Young Things etc.) and Krite (a.k.a. Christopher Uhe, ex-Speed Niggs, ex-Sharon Stoned, ex-Floor etc.). The two of them had met on different occasions when both of their rather noisy indie rock outfits HIP YOUNG THINGS and SPEED NIGGS appeared on the same bill.

Their debut album „Flush“ was released in 1993, receiving widespread media coverage all over Europe. After touring as a duo for quite a while, Schneider and Krite recorded their ground-breaking follow-up „Royal Flush“ in 1995, a milestone of lofi-glam-folk to this very day.

Glitterhouse Records released both albums as CD-only versions. Now the first time on vinyl.

Comes in a special fold out cover with lot’s of liner-notes and download code.

Limited edition of 500. First 100 on colored vinyl and with poster.

Listen to Royal Flush here.

We collect orders until end of November.
