Faded?

May 2nd, 2012

Maybe the photos have faded, but George’s music is still ringing in my ears. Faded Photographs is the most accomplished and accessible Absent Without Leave release to date, featuring guest appearances from some really great artists, including Port-Royal, Stafraenn Hakon, Epic 45, Millimetrik and members of Hood, The Declining Winter, Plumerai, Eksi Ekso, Tupolev, Slon and others too. Absent Without Leave is the solo project of George Mastrokostas, based in Athens, Greece.

Recording everything himself or sometimes with assistance from some good friends, he produces an ambient sound led by open clean guitar arpeggios accompanied by sweet landscapes and textures, reminds me of an old ambient Eno record.

Each cd is packaged in an elegant 4-panel digipak of recycled cardboard with the front cover image printed on photo paper! It’s a limited edition of 500 handmade collectible copies and each copy is unique with a different front cover image.You’d better hurry up cause there are only 27 copies left. Order it HERE

 


Save yourself

April 29th, 2012

The track is: ‘Save yourself’ by Names divine . Believe it or not, but the initial disharmony turns into a great rooted rock ballad. Great guitar and song. Know nothin about the artist.

Save Yourself

Villages

February 24th, 2012

Bathetic records are saying Ross Gentry is always in the studio, mastering the Villages craft. It shows when you listen to ‘Beach Pneumatic Transit’ from the cassette “The Spilling Past” on Bathetic Records.

A place to bury strangers

January 11th, 2012

Life on the road of A place to bury strangers is being documented by Instagram photos folks. ‘So far away’ is a real cool song accompanied by a killer video, and these guys are on the rise, so you’d better catch them on tour with Joy Formidable. ‘Onwards To The Wall’ LP is out, February 7 on Dead oceans. Tour date information HERE.

Painkillers & Alcohol

January 5th, 2012

Oddly enough, this record by Judah Warsky, titled ‘Painkillers & Alcohol‘, is coming out on March 5th 2012 , Which is exactly a year since I had my last shot of Vodka. P&A is released by Pan European recording and is definitely worth your attention. Love ‘Asleep on the train’..

 


LOFILES 2011′S SIXTYNINE

December 22nd, 2011

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.

We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.
