Dear Friends in Music

MoonJune Records is proud to announce the new release of one of the most extraordinary musicians on the MoonJune label’s roster, Serbian born and Barcelona Spain based guitarist extraordinaire Dusan Jevtovic. Already on his 5 participation on extended MoonJune’s family of similarly minded musos, No Answer is Dusan’s third solo album and the second solo album on the label, and his next studio work was already recorded last month again at the magic La Casa Murada in Spain, with Gary Husband, Markus Reuter and Bernat Hernandez, will be released in the first trimester of 2018.

The inspired pairing of guitarist Dusan Jevtovic and pianist Vasil Hadzimanov, mobilized by the convincing playing of Asaf Sirkis on drum kit, has resulted in a sound that cross-pollinates the most forward thinking aspects of progressive music with the excitement of post-jazz. Think ECM record label vibe filtered through Radiohead played at an intimate after-hours jazz venue and you’ll catch the vibe. Choosing to work without a bass player opens new dynamic possibilities and allows the guitar and keyboard voicing to dance and weave in a textural ballet. Vasil’s beautiful arpeggiated piano serves as delicate counterpoint to Dusan’s raw textured playing. Asaf alternates between the delicacy of Jon Christensen and the driving power of vintage Billy Cobham. Mini Moog bass brings a powerful bottom end for Jevtovic’ soaring acrobatics and reinforces Sirkis’ driving grooves. As with the very best instrumental music, there is a lot of careful listening, creative comping, and building off the other players’ energy, resulting in a music that is at once confident, inspired and original. Dusan Jevtovic’ second international release (his third) on the New York progressive jazz label MoonJune might be his groundbreaking work which will intrigue fans of guitarists such as John Abercrombie, John Frusciante, Terje Rypdal, David Torn, Nels Cline, and Jimi Hendrix.

“Listening to Asaf Sirkis” at work, two things are immediately obvious: passion and commitment. Blessed with technical skills that are disarmingly under-played, his middle-Eastern sensibility balances the potentially volcanic with the meditative and reflective. A master of creative surprise, it’s on the edge of your seat listening when Asaf’s in town.” – Dr. Bill Bruford

Argrph Announce New Single

Argrph Announce New Single Web Version
ARGRPH ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE
Full Image
Artist: ARGRPH (Pronounced ARE-GRAPH)
Track Title: ‘CYMORTH’ (Support)
Format: Single / Digital Download
Label: Libertino Records
Release Date: 23.06.17
Genre: Shoegaze / Surf

‘CYMORTH’

Listen: Click Here
Download: Click Here
Embeded: Click Here (then press share)

CYMORTH (meaning Support/Help) is ARGRPH’s follow-up single to the majestic melancholy that
was ‘Tywod’ from late 2016. Spending studio time again with producer Llyr Parry (Y Niwl, Palenco,
Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog), songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Emyr Sion was joined by Caradog Davies (drums+vocals) and Gwyn Rosser (guitar+vocals). Together they have created a song that musically brings a darker hue to their already distinctive dreamy, surf pop. Emyr is fastly developing to be one of the bravest and singular new creative voices from Wales.

CYMORTH is a song “Dealing with the inadequate and destructive advice given to those suffering
from mental health”. “Mocking the sentences that I (Emyr) have heard time after time during the
darkest points of my life” CYMORTH is a poetic and emotionally bruising song. There lies the magic
of ARGRPH’s sound, making the universal personal and the personal universal with music that is always emotionally stirring and beautifully uplifting.

Hms Morris Unveil New Video for ‘Morbid Mind’

HMS MORRIS UNVEIL NEW VIDEO FOR ‘MORBID MIND’


​Photo: Rhodri Brooks

Artist:HMS Morris

Track Title: ‘Morbid Mind’

Format: Video

Label: Waco Gwenci

‘Morbid Mind’

Video Link: https://youtu.be/YtFRE8dZAR0 (Video Contains Strobe / Flash Photography)

Embeded:

http://a%20href=

‘Morbid Mind’ and ‘Arth’ showcase the range of the band’s songwriting, sailing from a White
Denim–esque fluster to melodies reminiscent of traditional Welsh folk music.‘Morbid Mind’ explores
the morbid curiosity that resides within all of us, that drives the popularity of ‘murderabilia’ and lies
behind the rubbernecking instinct. The lure of the morbid can be explained as a noble desire to empathise
with the unfortunate, but can also lead to obsession, insanity, even death…

‘Arth’ (Welsh for ‘Bear’), is a tribute to an animal associated in cultures around the world with spiritual
strength, courage, and harmony with the cycles of the Earth. Today, as the fight intensifies to overcome
the forces destroyingour global communities and habitats, it seems more important than ever for us to
channel the spirit of Arth. Following the success of their debut album ‘Interior Design’ the band are excited
to showcase new material alongside old favourites and will be hitting the road from April.

Live Dates

June 23rd Chester Live, Chester
July 1st Gwyl Tafwyl Festival, Llandaff Fields, Cardiff.

Biography

HMS Morris are a Welsh Art-Pop group that delve into the wonky, odd-ball side of psychedelia, finding the balance
between bold experimentalism without giving up accessibility. With an undercurrent of post-punk edginess, the group
toy with colliding synthesisers and cooing vocals and still manage to create something cohesive and alluring (Clunk).
Released in November 2016, the band’s debut album ‘Interior Design’ is ‘a real trip, a multi- dimensional sound that
traipses across hitherto unexplored regions of sound’ (Clash), and with an as yet untitled follow-up already in production,
it seems the voyage is just getting started.

Dear Friends in Music.

MoonJune Records‘ heavy weight, Belgian-Italian guitarist extraordinaire Michel Delville is returning for the 9th time to the extended MoonJune family (his 10th album participation on MJR, on Dominique Vantomme’s new album “Roads”, will be released before the end of the year).

Augmented by the addition of the otherworldly talents of young maestro keyboardist, Antoine Guenet (The Wrong Object; Sh.TG.N; Univers Zero), fellow sonic adventurers — and Machine Mass founders — guitarist Michel Delville (The Wrong Object; douBt; Alex Maguire Sextet) and drummer Tony Bianco (douBt; Elton Dean; Dave Liebman) combine forces to steam through a set which provides a refreshing retake of some of the most influential psychedelic rock classics from the ’60’s that changed the face of music! While the songs reference frameworks familiar to most classic rock aficionados, the comparisons end there: the trio follows flight plans which are uniquely their own, achieving moments stunningly fresh, instinctive, profound and moving. The addition of piano and keyboards to the tracks provides a welcome approach, imploring reharmonizations as well as complete revisions many hipsters, both young and old, will revel in!

In typical Machine Mass fashion, the music thumbs its nose at convention and is unapologetically uninhibited in its delivery. The group pushes boundaries on all front, producing a record that is as fascinating from a tonal / textural perspective as it is from the ‘harmonic rethink’ and the mass of corporate liberties taken within the song structures, respectively.

Machine Mass’ “Plays Hendrix” is an engrossing, brilliantly conceived retake on some of rock’s most adventurous classic moments; a quintessential album for fans of rock, psychedelic and progressive, alike.

All other albums featuring Michel Delville on MoonJune Records
are available for a limited amount of time (until July 15, 2017)
for $10 (CDs, plus shipping)
or $7 (instant digital download (WAV, FLAC, M4A, MP3-320).

These four players, well-versed in transforming tangles of discursive strands into dazzling revelations, came together without any rehearsals or preamble, plugged in and took off. The resulting melange of rock-orientated grooves and languid drifts through spacey ambience is breathtakingly confident. With so much complimentary overlapping content and tuned-in acuity, you’d never guess that these six pieces were wholly improvised. Moving seamlessly from speculative reverie to ferocious, tumbling interplay, the degree to which this music sounds intricately arranged probably stems from the quartet’s ability to swap the focus from its frontline to backline in the twinkling of an eye, a rare capacity that brings to mind Wetton-era Crimson’s forays into the unknown. Wingfield’s impassioned guitar runs springboard from Reuter’s broad tonal sweeps. Bassist Yaron Stavi, whose nimble interlocking with drummer Asif Sirkis frequently regulates both direction and temperature. – Sid Smith, Prog Rock Magazine (UK)

It’s an album that breaks many rules, but could only be made by four musicians who not only learned them first, but continue to apply them even as they find ways to push past them into new terrain. Completely unclassifiable, The Stone House is a record that will challenge many preconceptions while still being rooted in enough of the approachable to render its appeal to fans of progressive music… a career-defining record for everyone involved. – John Kelman, All About Jazz (Canada/USA)

Remarkable Spontaneous Electric Explorations. Four of today’s finest progressive music artists got together to record an improvised album titled The Stone House. Although the music was not written or rehearsed, it’s not free jazz. Instead, Wingfield, Reuter, Stavi, and Sirkis treat the listener to remarkable electric musical explorations where the four musicians engage in an ongoing creative dialog. The four instrumentalists constantly cross musical boundaries, injecting ambient electronics, prog rock machinations, psychedelia, jazz-rock and beyond. – Angel Romero, Progressive Rock Central (USA)

Recording a live studio album with nothing written down or preplanned is a dangerous project to try unless you are the class of musician’s on this recording. Improvised albums recorded without rehearsal often have a distinctive raw feel, but this album makes you feel the same quality you get at the concert hall after the band has refined the compositions for a long period and rehearsed for many years. Recently, I have been using the term “Beyond genre” to describe music that transcends or goes beyond genre. I think this album is suitable for such an expression. They expand the expressive possibilities of their individual instruments. Making a musical experiment such as this, so successful is never easy. Let alone one with the emotional repertoire of this album . – Che Dragon, Progutopia (South Korea)

The interaction between the men is almost telepathic. The music is therefore downright nail biting and tension also continues in the quiet moments of the album. The tone is also put at ease with this incredibly exciting composition. Silver stands out the rotating, hypnotic rhythms… this composition turns around like a real whirlwind. The beautiful guitar solo can be seen as the eerily beautiful eye of this hurricane. This album deserves the designation ‘masterpiece’. The sound of these four men is energetic and intense, but therefore very exciting. This album shakes you completely, but I know very little music more impressive. – Luke Peerdeman, Progwereld (Holland)

Be prepared to be blown away… instant game changer… profoundly innovative and compelling… immediately essential… I can’t even begin to describe how enthralled I am to have a copy of this stratospheric release by Wingfield, Reuter, Stavi, and Sirkis. – Wesley Derbyshire, Mediaversal Reviews (USA)

What happens when four progressive Euro cats convene at a recording studio in Spain with nothing prepared beforehand? With no composed music, no rehearsals, overdubs expressly forbidden, no genre limitations… these four just plugged in and played. Spontaneous combustion creates fires but this spontaneous composition creates art. Those who thirst for new sound should seek no further. – Mike Greenblatt, Aquarian Magazine (USA)

Not unlike the atmospheres of Terje Rypdal ECM recordings (for icy space guitars) or Miles Davis post “Bitches brew” (for the electrical, instrumental and rhythmic expansion) and we could also add Robert Fripp, Bill Frisell… as many references to music which is very written and precise, while it seems that here everything has been improvised in the studio in one take. Wonder. – Igor Wagner, Sefronia Chronique Jazz (France)

I was completely taken aback and just in awe… It felt as if they were breaking the doors down of Jazz with a gigantic bulldozer… This is a spellbinding release – Zachary Nathanson, Music From The Other Side of the Room (USA)

The two guitarists create an interplay that goes beyond the limits of the instrument… an ingenious and resourceful progression against the common use of the six strings.Dynamic and harmonious, emotional and powerful (the roaring start of Rush and the excellent Silver), in a crossover path where the conventions are lost and sounds make provocation. – Luigi Cattaneo, ProgressivaMente (Italy)

Bassman Yaron Stavi, who has a long association with Robert Wyatt, not to mention Phil Manzanera and David Gilmour, and the rarely unemployed Asif Sirkis, on dextrous but very powerful drums, have a telepathic understanding of where that anchor should be, even in these unchartered waters. Atop that you have two of the most imaginative guitarists around, Markus Reuter of primarily Stick Men fame, although he has many more strings to his bow than that particular combo, and the much in demand Mark Wingfield, An unrivalled confection of consummate deliciousness. Listening intently – and you will – to The Stone House, it is hard to remember in places that this is all off the cuff, the arrangements unfolding before the listener, just as they did before the players as they switch attention from the top line to the rhythmic structure and back again with intuitive ease. The album moves from spacious ambience to edge-of-seat thrills and back again… When this thing motors it inescapably recalls the mighty Crimson in their 1973-74 improvisational pomp in the way it takes risks; it is that good! The sound throughout is gorgeous. – Roger Trenwith, The Progressive Aspect (UK)

Brilliant, fresh, honest and uniquely original music that truly defies categorization! A telepathic masterpiece of progressive jazz-rock musicianship. – John Pritchard, Jazz-Rock.com (USA)

Masterful… ensemble of great rank, equipped with tons of talent and expressive ingenuity, opening the field for the reign of the texture and the empire of impressionism within a sonorous scheme strictly demanding in the technical…. an hour of jazz-progressive delight. “The Stone House” as a 100% recommendable record for fans of progressive rock and jazz with especially adventurous motivations. – César Inca Mendoza Loyola, Autopoietican (Peru/Spain)

The most imposing thing of all is that “The Stone House” was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs and completely improvised, with no music written down or rehearsed. Can you imagine that? Do listen to a single track and please read the above line again. How that’s possible?! Every performance here is simply amazing! The guys play like they have rehearsed each music theme at least a dozen times! …. It’s hard to believe that this is a live recording. – Thanos Aggelakis, Grande Rock (Greece)

Rhythmic patterns allow the quartet to move from softly spoken music all the way to deafening rock and terrifying climaxes. This is not background music… …Rocking passages such as the King Crimson-like Silver or the magnificent Fjords De Catalunya. You are entertained by sweeping landscapes and suggestive soundscapes. Your are fed daring musical adventurers for nearly an hour before being treated Bona Nit Senior Rovira’s final moving chord. – Renee Yedema, IO Pages Magazine (Holland)

Mark Wingfield and Markus Reuter… take the limits of their instruments and then just keep going. There are times when it is hard to realise that the sounds are coming from guitars as they are taken into brand new areas of tonal adventures. Fully improvised music is rarely as compelling or interesting as this… This is yet another incredibly important release from MoonJune. – Kev Rowland, Jazz Music Archives (USA/ New Zealand)

In the rock world, music is dominated by bands consisting of a more or less consistent group of players. There are also solo artists, some of whom have set backing bands, but those musicians are rarely granted much more than an occasional spotlight during a performance. Jazz, on the other hand, has always been about the musicians individually, coming together in various configurations for a time, sometimes being a leader, sometimes a guest, spreading ideas around — nearly every sideman on a famous leader’s album has albums of their own. For decades there’s been a stream of jazz created by getting together a set of musicians for a session and seeing what happens. The Stone House is a modern example of this strategy. The Stone House is outstanding from start to finish, eminently listenable, and should find a home in the collections of fans of both electric jazz and that flavor of progressive rock represented by Stick Men and most of the artists on MoonJune and RareNoise. – Jon Davis, Exposé Magazine (USA)

Wingfield and Reuter raise the mastery of the guitar to a cosmic level. Both musicians are not afraid to go new ways, and are far from the standard guitar cliches. The albums’s tracks are full of exciting dialogs and guitar solos which are like precious jewels, juicy bass inserts and polyrhythmic drum patterns…. The internal intrigue of the album is built on the almost magical interaction of the two first-class guitarists with the active support of the rhythm section… It is amazing that all the music of The Stone House is improvisational. – Leonid Auskern, Jazz Square (Russia)

Exciting music that feels structured with melody and yet has a surfeit of exciting improvisations and climaxes. -George Harris, Jazz Weekly (USA)

There has not been a previous plan, a score, any rehearsal or overdubs. The art and magic of the talent of each of these four musicians has reached such a high degree of communication and cohesion, that it’s as if they had written and rehearsed all the music before hand. Without realizing the 59 minutes and 54 seconds total have gone unnoticed but gladly that leaves us a taste to want to repeat many times listening to the essence that only a work of art knows how to capture – Jordán Quintero, Opinionynoticias (Venezuela)

Completely improvised music which sounds super strong and convincing, it’s almost hard to believe that your are listening to a live recording of literally what happened on that memorable day (19 February 2016) in a studio in Spain. But it was played by four awesome musicians so that explains something. Six compelling instrumental pieces… and what an impressive example of “listen before you play” a credit to all four gentlemen. – Vrije Geluiden, VPRO (Holland)

The communication between the musicians is truly telepathic. The individual performances by all quartet members are, as expected, quite amazing, both on the individual level and especially so on the ensemble level. A splendid effort which should make all guitar fans extremely happy, especially since many of the things heard on this album are quite unique and certainly innovative. – Adam Baruch, The Soundtrack Of My Life (Israel)

Press play and you will be overwhelmed by ingenious and inventive prog rock with a jazzy jacket. No ego-tripping as in the jazz world. Each harmonious melody line is researched and turned into something spectacular. – Marino Serdons, Keys And Chords (Belgium)

Be open minded and you’ll find an unconventional music made by musicians peerless!” – Marc Thibeault, Profil Prog Reviews (Canada)

Guitars become an otherworldly force in the hands of Mark Wingfield and Markus Reuter. The two bend the boundaries of traditional jazz-rock lines, using the guitar as a controller for electronics to lead into some beautiful sonic territories…gorgeous guitar-scapes. – Irene Trudel WFMU FM NYC (USA)

The Stonehouse is an impressive session from four musicians who are sure to be the cream of the international fusion scene. The music on this album was recorded without anything preset or written down it was completely improvised. No overdubs! The result is an enormously exciting album, on which the four participants are mutually encouraging each other on high-altitude flights on their instruments. Free music, sometimes violent, sometimes meditative – always giving you goosebumps! It’s over-used, but here the term “Super Session” really fits! – Bernd Kielmann, Medien-Info.com (Germany)

HOTEL DEL SALTO ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE

Listen / Stream
Artist: Hotel Del Salto
Track Title: ‘Stand Up For Your Right’
Label: Libertino Records
Release Date: 19th June 2017
Format: Digital Download

“Imagine the pop experimentation of Bowie and Prince, throw in a bit of Beck and a bit of Mac DeMarco. The result: Hotel Del Salto. J. Francis combines brilliantly experimental songwriting with playful lyrics, a DIY approach to recording and, most of all, an irrefutable talent to package his influences into one, wonderful, 3-minute-long tracks. Gigslutz

Hotel Del Salto (AKA J. Francis) follows up the success of debut single ‘Bigger Than Elvis’ by adding another string to his bow; the art-pop cocktail of new single ‘Stand For Your Right’. Taking cues from the dance/rock crossovers of Primal Scream and Art of Noise, while infusing the experimentalism of 60’s pop pioneers such as Brian Wilson and Syd Barrett. ‘Stand For Your Right’ is a bold artistic leap.

Written in late 2016, the song has the unusual facet of being produced over two continents. “I wrote the main chunk of it in my hometown, Carmarthen. I had the idea of writing a protest song that was very linear, the fallout in the UK post referendum was deeply disturbing… then I went out to Texas for six weeks over election time and obviously there’s parallels out there. It’s about people sticking together rather than be divided”

‘Stand For Your Right’ is a thrilling testament of Francis’s creative vision. Starting with a hypnotizing guitar and kick drum, before giving away to Francis’s swirling vocal mantra above a deliciously classic bass groove. The track never lets up in playing around with the listener’s expectation of pop structure.
