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 new Seafog double LP, Animal Lovers, can now be pre-ordered from Zelle Records. The test pressing sounds amazing! Great job, Seafog! Great job, Forbes Williams! Great job, Duophonic! Pre-order price is €27.00+ p&p. Place your pre-order now before all the invoices come in and we have to put the price up …
Back in the nineties, Edmund Epple‘s Raffmond label in Landsberg am Lech, Bavaria, brought Kiwi Rock to Germany and to the world. Raffmond artists include The Terminals, The Cakekitchen, Peter Jefferies and others.
Last week, Ede went downstairs to his secret vaults and dug up some long forgotten LP’s he then put into a box and mailed us. Check out our Further Listening sub page for original pressings of three Raffmond classics, all dating from 1994: Stompin’ Thru The Boneyard and World Of Sand by The Cakekitchen and Electricity by Peter Jefferies.
Aume (austro mechana) has given Seafog‘s Animal Lovers double LP the go-ahead.
While Zelle Records won’t be attending this year’s Vinyl & Music Festival/Indie Label Market (20/21 October) in Linz in person, Kay Burki (Wiener LP Café) and his magic Kiwi Rock box will be there. Check it out.
Hey, kids! There’s a new record shop in town! And a good one, at that. It’s called Wiener LP Café, is located in Vienna, obviously, in the 3rd District, and carries goodies from Zelle Records, Fishrider Records and CocoMuse Releases – and even the super rare Leather Apron EP (Long Lost Music). The shop is indeed, as its name suggests, a record shop cum café. Owner Kay Burki is a professional sound technician. The address is Erdbergstraße 10. Does that ring a bell? Well, it’s just a few meters away from the spot (Erdbergstraße 41, in Erdberg) where King Richard I Coeur-de-Lion of England, while returning from the Holy Land, was captured by Duke Leopold of Austria in 1192.
Kay is talking about putting up a Kiwi Rock box in his shop. Ha! That would be awesome!
So this is what the new Seafog double LP, Animal Lovers (ZR012), will look like. For the third time in a row, Seafog frontman Robin Sharma‘s wife Sarah Sharma has been put in charge of the cover artwork. The cat painting is by Seafog drummer Marty Sadler.
