MoonJune Records’s New Releases, February 2018 – promos available

1514429899195-ze341vu0nkf-b7fa97a07e6bfd9f48386827a5cde285.jpg?1514429803
Dear Media

Starting this year, MoonJune Records is limiting the amount of physical CDs to be sent out, due to the increasing and prohibitive costs of shipping, specially outside of the USA. MoonJune used to send over 1500-2000 retail and promos until some years ago, reducing to an average of 600-750 in past 1-2 years. This year, MoonJune has to go even further in reducing the amount of physical promos to be sent to 150 in the USA and 200 abroad. Many of You already are receiving and accepting digital files. MoonJune is sending files generated via BandCamp’s download code system, and those file are available in high-resolution 24bit formats: FLAC, WAV, M4A-ALAC, and you have also options to download in MP3-320 format as well. I love sending physical promos, but times have changed. HD audiophile quality audio files are of the superior quality than any CD in circulation if – as MoonJune albums – properly recorded, properly mixed and properly mastered.

MoonJune Records’ February 2018 releases are available now:

VANTOMME – ‘Vegir’
SLIVOVITZ – ‘LiveR’
DUSAN JEVTOVIC – ‘Live At Home’

In order to receive free download, you have to go to this link:

And then request the code by sending the e-mail to: noanoamusic and the download codes for each albums will be sent to You as soon s possible.

Physical promos will be sent early next week, from January 15th to the hand-picked customized promo list. I am very flexible and generous, as many might know, and I gladly make exceptions from the rule, and I can satisfy some of You still hungry for the physical copy if You are not included in my selected list.
MoonJune Records is a brutally independent not-profitable Don-Quixotesque one-man operated boutique record label, consisting of only Yours truly and operated by Leonardo Pavkovic in his free time, and in middle and/or between his many world travels accompanying many artists from the MoonJune’s booking roster, performing around the world.

Thank You for Your cooperation, understanding and support.

Artist: VANTOMME
Title: Vegir (featuring Tony Levin)
MJR catalog number: MJR090

Vantomme is a project of Dominique Vantomme, keyboardist, composer, band leader and producer, equally as well known for his work with many European pop and rock acts as for being the jazz piano instructor at the Music Conservatory in Kortrijk, in his native Belgium. In the studio session in Antwerpen, Belgium, in October 2016, Dominique Vantomme was joined by two musicians from the MoonJune circuit: the legendary Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, Sick Men) on bass guitar and Chapman stick, and Michel Delville (The Wrong Object; douBt; Machine Mass) on guitar, with Dominique’s ultra-talented Belgian colleague Maxime Lenssens, tasked with holding down the timekeeping duties. The spontaneity and freshness of this sizzling, high-altitude set reflects the equally unpretentious manner in which the session itself came together. Tackling some decidedly hip musical sketches of Dominique Vantomme, the band is given full artistic liberty – and with all participants in top form, the resulting music weaves and winds its way across paths previously untrodden … in stunning fashion, and with sure footing! In the truest MoonJune tradition, “Vegir” thumbs its nose at convention and showcases these seasoned veteran musicians at the top of their game: with the skill set, bravery and chutzpah to follow their instincts and, in the process, allow the music to seek out and ultimately capture its own form. It slinks; it growls; it stalks; it devours! It grooves; it stutters; it holds you in suspense, then explodes! (… think ‘juggling chainsaws’ in the sonic realm.)

Artist: SLIVOVITZ
Title: LiveR
MJR catalog number: MJR089

Recorded live in Milan, Italy, in May of 2016, “LiveR” showcases the eccentric young Italian maestros at their collective best – playful, daring and just having fun! Some of their most potent material to date (primarily from their heralded 2011 release, “Bani Ahead” and 2016’s delectable “All You Can Eat“) is revisited in truly refreshing style: uninhibited, lively, but still with their decidedly tight synchronicity and intuitive interplay as a unit. Brilliant individual moments abound, with many songs extending well beyond their previously-established studio confines: affording soloists the opportunity to really step out and shine, while harmonic and rhythmic potentials are explored with playful delight by an always-adventurous rhythm section, steadily smoldering in the background. While many live albums may come across as merely a rehash or an attempted recapturing of some previous musical magic, from the opening frame it’s apparent that Slivovitz is completely engaged in the material — showcasing both their collective and individual brilliance and ambition, while continuing to push the bounds of each song’s structural and harmonic blueprints. This album roars with intensity, while serving as a testimony to the intrepidity and unfettered spirit of adventure which make this band one of progressive music’s most unique, innovative collective entities. “LiveR” is a merry frolic; a wonderfully vibrant live recording (enhanced by excellent production) which continues to grows on you with repeated listenings … delightful, essential ear candy! For fans of Snarky Puppy, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Frank Zappa, PFM, John Zorn, caffé espresso, la vera pizza napoletana and of course, of slivovitz!

Artist: DUSAN JEVTOVIC
Title: Live At Home
Catalog number: CD009/2017

LIMITED EDITION CD. For promotional usage only and limited sale. Made possible with the generous support of SKC (STUDENTSKI KULTURNI CENTAR) KRAGUJEVAC. Released by SKC, for limited distribution and marketing by MoonJune Records. The proceeds from the album are intended to fund Dusan’s next studio release.

There is something daringly creative about Dusan Jevtovic’s latest release. Live at Home is an album that has many special characteristics. As the name aptly suggests this is a live album and was recorded on the 23rd December 2016 at the Decije Pozorište in Dusan’s home city of Kragujevac in Serbia. The recording is clear and uncluttered and does not suffer from any intrusive audience noise, or unwelcome audience participation.

Live at Home contains a number of pieces that featured on Jevtovic’s outstanding No Answer album. For the live performance, Jevtovic’s is aided, as he was in No Answer, by the renowned Serbian keyboard player Vasil Hadzimanov. The rest of the band on this live occasion are made up of Pera Krstajic on bass and Pedja Milutonovic on drums. Live at Home leaves little doubt that progressive fusion can be a passionate affair. It is an album that is never sterile, but is teeming with feeling and creative ideas that give it an organic and human touch. It burns energetically and ignites a multitude of senses; it gently serenades the heart, and when dissonance takes place, it seductively caresses the mind

Live at Home is a superbly-crafted fusion master class. It oozes with heartfelt emotion; containing dashing solo lines and dazzling instrumental passages. The music goes way beyond any normally defined parameters associated with fusion. This creates an album that is often exhilarating and challenging in its complexity. Technically excellent playing is combined with musical structures that enable boldly creative developments and well thought out embellishments to take place. Live at Home is a release that is able to take the listener through a range of moods and emotions. It combines the right mixture of aggression and charming serenity and never ignores the importance of the use of light and shade to emphasise its more explosive parts.

If you enjoy edgy tunes flavoured with lavish amounts of unpredictability and filled with accomplished playing; Live at Home is sure to delight. It is an album that rewards intensive and repeated listens.

MOONJUNE RECORDS which came into being in 2001 as the brainchild of out-of-the-box entrepreneurial producer, tour manager and globetrotter Leonardo Pavkovic, is named after Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt’s famous 1970 epic “The Moon in June,” has already established a name for itself with “in the know” fans. Its focus is to release internationally-situated music by artists exploring the expanding boundaries of genuine, challenging, non-over-produced music that cannot be easily categorized into any specific format. MoonJune Records’ ongoing goal is to support music that transcends stylistic pigeon-holing, but operates within an evolutionary progressive musical continuum that places jazz at one end and rock at the other. The ever-expanding boundaries of these two musical categories have since come to include everything from progressive rock to ethno-jazz, from experimental avant-garde to jazz-rock, and anything in between and beyond.

MOONJUNE MUSIC (BOOKINGS & MANAGEMENT) has handled booking of over 2000 shows since its formation in 2001.

MAJOR NEWS FROM ONE OF MOONJUNE’S
FAVORITE RECORD LABEL, CUNEIFORM RECORDS
RUN BY PERSONAL FRIEND OF LEONARDO PAVKOVIC,
STEVE FEIGENBAUM
Cuneiform Records announce that founder Steve Feigenbaum will take a year’s sabbatical to decide the future direction of label after falling sales
Cuneiform’s Steve Feigenbaum – one of Leonardo Pavkovic closest friends in the independent recording music business fandango in the USA for almost two decades.

Cuneiform Records, a Silver Springs, Maryland, label that’s released hundreds of jazz and experimental albums beginning back in 1984, is taking a hiatus from issuing new music. Steve Feigenbaum, the imprint’s founder, is using 2018 to assess Cuneiform’s future. The label’s albums still will be available for purchase. Wayside Distribution, an affiliated endeavor that distributes a wide variety of experimental music, is unaffected by the move.

“There is no business model that lets you compete with free,” Feigenbaum said about his imprint’s current state.

Since its first releases more than 30 years ago, Cuneiform has trucked in some adventurous original music, as with avant-gardists R. Stevie Moore and Richard Pinhas, while keeping an eye on its influences. A clear affinity for Soft Machine and its jazz-rock explorations are apparent through not only archival releases of the British troupe, but also solo releases from the band’s Hugh Hopper and Robert Wyatt.

“As sales of recorded music in all formats have steadily declined, it’s become increasingly difficult to finance the release of new high-quality musical content,” Joyce Nalewajk, the label’s director of publicity and promotion, wrote in a news release. “A glut of free music on the internet and nearly free music on streaming platforms has devalued music.”

The imprint’s pause seems almost antithetical to the pace – and quality – it’s maintained. In 2017, Wadada Leo Smith’s America’s National Parks, which the label released, was voted Jazz Album of the Year in DownBeat’s annual Critics Poll. The label’s most recent release was a sprawling 12-disc, two-DVD set focused on French experimentalists Art Zoyd.

“This is a really hard thing, but it’s been hard for a long time. Doing this is kind of a relief,” Feigenbaum said about a decision that’s been in the works for 10 months. “Sometimes, when you have a hard decision, getting to that decision is the hardest part. … I can live with that.”
