Talent Contest

Posted on Updated on

Kia ora,

My Friend Stefan Bachmann of the VIP Record Club in Salzburg tells me he is planning an international competition for bands and solo artists are keen to do an album, or participate in a compilation or suchlike.

Applications to stefan@viprecordclub.com. Please include information as regards the band/act/band bio, pictures and videos if there are any. eight to twelve tracks would be ideal, as essentially this is about an album. There are contestants who have submitted less, so split albums and comps. It’s pretty open. The same goes for musical genre. Anything goes, really.

Ideally, tracks should be mastered and ready to go, but this is not a knockout criterion. Concerts, live streamings etc. are also in some stage of planning, possibly there will be a slot at the next Ottakringer Music and Vinyl Festival in Vienna, next March. By early August (2019), Stefan will certainly know a lot more. Don’t hesitate to contact him or/and me.

Hei konā mai,


We have moved

Zelle Records has set up new headquarters in Leopoldstadt, Vienna’s 2nd District. While our stock is currently still in the vault in Holochergasse, in the 16th (Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus), we can of course track down anything you need and ship it to you, wherever you are. Any chaos at Zelle, if it exists, is only temporary. Our new address is Weintraubengasse 30/17, 1020 Wien, Austria.

Seafog‘s new double album, Animal Lovers, will be ready to ship very soon. Technically, it would still be a pre-order, but it can only be a matter of days until the vinyl arrives in Vienna.

In case you haven’t discovered our Zelle+ Further Listening section, yes, it’s actually a thing. All the goodies there can and may indeed be ordered. Better do it now. Stock is typically very limited.

“You Do You” out at last!

Finally, the Negative Nancies 12” EP, You Do You, has been greenlit for immediate release by CocoMuse label boss Regan Elliott. Order now.


New album from Francisca Griffin

Posted on Updated on

Two decades after her first solo album, Some from the Sky (1998), Look Blue Go Purple‘s Francisca Griffin, formerly known as Kathy Bull, has a new album out, on our Christchurch partner label, Regan Elliott‘s CocoMuse Releases. The LP is called The Spaces Between and will be launched on 25 January. It was recorded at the Anteroom, Port Chalmers, in only two consecutive days, on 4 and 5 April, 2015. We have a small contingent here in Vienna. If you live outside NZ, it might make sense for you (pre)order from us. See our Zelle+ subpage.the spaces between
