Originally formed as a soundtrack project - Winterover:a film by Stephen Eastaugh documenting his winter residencyin Antarctica - The Still is a collision of captivating simplicityand fleeting subtle complexity, stretched over far-reachingtrajectories and patterned other-worldly planes. The Still delvessteadily and unremittingly deeper into arrested time.Song-forms are diluted by overtones and resonancethat melt together into a cyclical trance, promising no resolution.

Candy Bomber - Vol. 1

Coming in January 2017: Candy Bomber - Vol. 1.

The Candy Bomber sessions were spearheaded by Paul Lemp, co-owner of the studio of the same name, theater, film and dance composer, and impassioned bass player. The sessions were his dream project of free-spirited experimentation into which he injected his boundless energy, teaming up with Thomas Wydler (drummer and longest serving member of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) and studio partner Ingo Krauss (Conny Plank’s studio engineer between 1987 and 2001) to form a core triumvirate, that spiralled outwards to bring in a who’s who of talented friends and studio visitors. In this volume these include Kid Congo Powers, Swiss jazz pianist Stefan Rusconi, Jochen Arbeit (Einstürzende Neubauten/Automat), Gemma Ray, Toby Dammit (Iggy Pop/Nick Cave), André Vida, Toni Kater, Charly Birkenhauer, Paul Kuchenbuch and Matthew Styles.

Built during the Nazi era, the building which houses Candy Bomber was once the largest in the world. (a Julian Montague impression of the facade of the building adorns the album cover). In 1948/49 it served as the hub for the Berlin airlift, when the allied forces flew over 200,000 flights supplying the Western part of the city with daily necessities. The airlift also provided the name for the studio, which set up shop in rooms that previously hosted a computing centre for the CIA.

The studio is now legendary in Berlin, not least for its enviable collection of vintage valve gear. With this at their disposal, Lemp, Krauss and Wydler established an environment for sessions that were organic, pressure-free and, more or less, agenda-less. The end result is sonic art unimpeded - a wild cocktail of originality, intensity, beauty, sincerity, and stunning freeform musicianship - underscored by a Dada-ist playfulness and motivating force. This is not a work of chin-stroking abstraction however - here you’ll find some of the coolest jams, ones that will peel your face off.

Tragically, Paul Lemp died prematurely and unexpectedly in summer 2015, before the Candy Bomber sessions were finished. Krauss and Wydler finished the record shortly after, and despite his passing (and as the Vol. 1 title suggests) - intend to continue them in his honour.

SA08 - The Still

Coming Soon on April 22nd, the debut album by Berlin-based instrumentalists, featuring Chris Abrahams of The Necks.

The Still are a cast ofinternational musicians who congregate in Berlin and create hypnotic,perfectly-tensioned instrumental music that has earned them a cool cultfollowing on the underground gig scene there. Experimentaldrummer/percussionist Steve Heather and fellow Australian Chris Abrahams (TheNecks) on piano, Canadian Derek Shirley on double bass, the wonderfully-namedGerman guitarist Rico Repotente, and Thomas Meadowcraft on organ/revox are thecore members, with an occasional expanded version with horns. The mood is setfor minimalist, unhurried grooves and soundscapes.

It’s seriously good for yourhealth, to find yourself in this spellbound state once in a while. People paygood money to get this kind of head on you know. And whilst we could sit hereall day pondering what The Still is and what The Still isn’t, all that shouldbe left to say is surely contained inthe band’s own press release, reproduced here for your wonderment:

“What do Neil Young, Malcolm Young and LesterYoung have in common? They were all huge fans of and heavily influenced by TheStill. Originally formed in 1964 in the deserts of Zuni Pueblo, New Mexico, TheStill’s revolutionary minimalist style of reducing music to it’s purest untilleft with raw, palpable emotion brought them adoration far beyond cult statusamong the band’s fans and peers and led to pianist Glenn Gould’s famous andoften repeated quoted: “The Still is the essence of music.”

In the last four decades the band was theinspiration of other musical milestones such as Whitesnakes “In The Still OfThe Night”, the Scorpions’ “Still Loving You” as well as John Cage’s “4’33”.

It is believed that the release of The Still’sfirst album led to a substantial growth in world population. After a year-longspiritual retreat during which the band concentrated on the traditional native Americanart of Zuni Pueblo pottery, the original line-up are back to provide the uniquemusical experience that is The Still.”

SA07 - Heavy Trash - Noir!


Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the men known as Heavy Trash, never thought that anyone could be watching or listening, let alone recording, when they perpetrated these middle-of-the-night flip-outs, improvisations, instrumentals, and dangerous experiments in unchecked soul exposition and naked desire. Had they known the tape was rolling, we would never have this demented document of darkness and decay. But their demons have come to light, and you are now invited to dance through the dusky shadows of a musical group on the edge. This is pure Heavy Trash. This is Noir!

WARNING: Noir! is not for the weak, the uninitiated, for dabblers, or dilettantes. Seriés Aphōnos has gone to special pains to ensure that this record will never be a hit. You cannot give the people what they want, nor can you give this record back.

Zarelli’s Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

Last week we released the Zarelli album “Soft Rains”, an epic musical interpretation of Leonard Nimoy’s narration of a Ray Bradbury story. Five days later, Mr. Nimoy sadly passed away. We decided to go ahead and release the video (by Mark Warrington) which was slated to premiere on Mojo and Vevo today, as we think it is a fitting tribute to the inimitable presence of the great man. We hope you agree.

Head over to Mojo to see it, and read more about the project here.
