We're pulling no punches coming into this new year, because - well - it's our tenth anniversary. Fourth grade.
So first for the gigs and special events: we begin with three special editions of the Warsaw Orchestra of Recreation (WOR) in Warsaw's TR (the second offering on March the 5th); we're planning a DeLux version of Lado in the City in the summer, but hush for now 'cause we don't want to jinx it; and the fall... we won't speak about that either, because, frankly, we don't know much ourselves.
When it comes to publishing:
1. 60 MINUT PROJEKT "Behringer Mixtape Plan" (MC)
All y'all kept asking the guys after gigs when they'd release something, so they're releasing something. A limited issue of 60 (you know it) tapes of 60 minutes (you know that, too), featuring the material from the October 2012 live concert in Kiev's Divan club. Unedited as there really was no editing that stuff. Screen-printed cover in six versions signed with six tags of six legendary Polish writers. Six. Six. Six.
2. ED WOOD "Post-Mortem Lovers" (CD)
Hugely delayed, the album will come out in April. An outstanding piece of work from those Bydgoszcz-based scamps, with a tiny contribution from almost the entire line-up of Paristetris. By coincidence. A radical change of direction! Retrograde messaging! Mathematical precision! Bang!
3. LXMP with CLAYTON THOMAS "Krautcore Kamikaze" (CD)
The third edition of the LXMP+ series. A result of last year's recording session that was constantly interrupted by one Waldemar Kuleczka, who was mixing his pieces next door. The effects are pretty surprising, if such terms apply here at all, but then again you know... we must write SOMETHING. That's in April as well.
4. XENONY "XE" (CD/MC)
The project headed by Piotrek Bukowski (Stwory, Hokei), exploring something one could arguably sum up as Commodoresqueishness. Reverbed 8/16-bit stuff and moving melodies with seriously improper midi-pitch interventions. The record took sweet time to be made, but it finally bemaded. It was initially scheduled to come out in November 2011, but floppy discs are like wine, so April 2014 will also be good.
And as to the long-overdue: we have Slalom's CD on offer, and soon will back that up with an LP. The Felix Kubin LP is also coming.
That's all for now. Of course, we have a lot more things planned (Record Store Day! What's up with that?), so we'll keep you informed.
