December shivers!

Seksound releases Eoins’ new single “Shiver & Shrug”, Eoins full length album “Rites” is due in early 2018.
The forthcoming album features earlier releases with Seksound – “What the Future Holds” and “Sudden Death Mode” – and seven brand new tracks. While the earlier singles were flirting electronica and sampling, “Shiver & Shrug” loves guitars, folk and prog rock. The new album will broaden the genre spectrum even further.
Eoins was formed by Madis Järvekülg, the leader of the now gone post-punk band lack of Eoins, whose debut album was released nine years ago.

Mountain trip lets go!

Seksound invites you to trip to the mountains of Pia Fraus!  Brand new video for the wondrous and ambient track “Mountain Trip Guide” by Pia Fraus is out now. It is directed and edited by the former Pia Fraus drummer Joosep Volk.

“The song’s atmosphere is interpersonal, resonating a familiarity and tranquil mood. The song is full of luscious sounds, painting imagery that feels remote, almost isolating. Pia Fraus entertain the idea of feeling abandoned by yourself in such stunning areas, even if that area is within the depths of yourself. “Mountain Trip Guide” is sure to bring a formidable emotion to the forefront of one’s life. The song now has an accompanying music video, which can be seen below. “Mountain Trip Guide” is off of Pia Fraus’ recent record Field Ceremony” New Noise Magazine

“This one has got much of its inspiration from Scottish mountains and trips to Scotland we’ve made with our friends and bandmates. I like that, in the end, this song that had started off from almighty nature, gained an even erotic undertone. It has some hazyness, overwhelmingness, a feeling that you’ve got lost in the mountains or simply in your own feelings.” – Pia Fraus

Good news from the fields!

After releasing a string of singles starting in 2016, Pia Fraus are now releasing their first full-length album entitled Field Ceremony in almost a decade. Both the “Autumn Winds” and “That’s Not All” singles have been met with critical acclaim, creating anticipation for the forthcoming new album.

Released on Seksound (Europe), Shelflife (U.S.), and Vinyl-Junkie Records (Japan), Field Ceremony is a triumphant return for the band, bringing back their signature dreampop sounds alongside fresh takes on pop structures!

What the Future Holds?

Dear all!

The former lack of Eoins, a post-punk band from Viljandi, who released their debut album “Echo Group” nine years ago, has now become Eoins to surprise us with their new single “What The Future Holds” released today under our own Seksound label.

In 2008, Siim Nestor wrote about lack of Eoins debut album: “[—] lack of Eoins defies the logical way of listening, their tracks are not static but keep transforming, stretching in all directions, doing all that without deceptive ambition,” and defined their genre as art-rock and art-indie.

The new track under the new name might be seen as marking a move towards a more electronic style but the band’s leader Madis Järvekülg says there are more guitar-centered tunes, but still as restless and eccentric, to be expected in near future. Eoins will release their rather eclectic full-length album in autumn.

In addition to Eoins own track, the single features a remix by an Estonian electronic musician Build Gates.

The last lack of Eoins official release so far was in 2012, when Seksound released their digital single featuring three remixes of “Sudden Death Mode”. The single was accompanied by a video:

That’s Not All!

We have excellent news!
In anticipation of the fall 2017 release of their first full-length album in almost a decade, Pia Fraus are releasing an EP entitled That’s Not All on our own little Seksound Record Label.

In 2016, Pia Fraus broke their long silence by releasing their first single in eight years entitled “Autumn Winds”. That was followed up by the split single “Cloudy Eyes” in 2017. “That’s Not All” will be the final track on their forth coming album, and marks a return for these dreampop veterans. The main track on the EP is full of meandering guitars, floating harmonized vocals, and perfectly timed pop sensibilities.

Included on the EP are a number of remixes of “That’s Not All” including from Chicago’s shoegaze wonders Airiel, Estonia’s experimental electronic artist Galaktlan, German electronic maestro Ulrich Schnauss, Estonia’s very own dreampop band Picnic, and thenorth eastern United States electronic conglomerate of Mahogany.

The That’s Not All EP will be released on May 29, 2017 in both digital and limited CD formats.

You can order copy from:
Darla Records (USA) –  here
Seksound (EU) – here

Lets go to Galaktlan!

We are very happy to share good news!

First released in 2005 by Kohvirecords, Galaktlan´s second album Constance will now reissued on vinyl!

galaktlan_1

Galaktlan aka Taavi Laatsit has gathered here verbal and musical samples, synthesizer shimmerings, the precise beats and sounds of synthetic electronics but also more natural rhythm patterns and even string instruments. At times, the music blends into a haze of sound, at times forms detailed compositions with clear instrumental lines, eventually drawing a picture of a melancholic romantic magical world. Hendrik Luuk gives Galaktlan a hand in a track „Kindralmidi“ on guitar and Ramo Teder, aka Pastacas, enriches „Laanetaguse“ with his unmistakably recognizable voice. Tristan Priimägi said in his review that if electronic music is usually inspired by realism, then Galaktlan is inspired by magic. It´s baroque electronica. „Constance is an ode to the times when people could be bothered to read poems and express their love for someone“, he wrote. Galaktlan has himself said that the title of the album is inspired by the world and thinking of Alexandre Dumas, by the beautiful Constance Bonacieux from „The three musketeers“, who was loved and adored by D’Artagnan. The last track of the album „Zolushka“, on the other hand, features as the main theme the Cinderella song from the Soviet animated film version of the fairytale. Such lyrical-nostalgic atmosphere is there through all 10 tracks.

The remastered „Constance“ will be out on vinyl and digitally on March 27th but it may be preordered already from Darla Records (here) or Seksound´s bandcamp page (here)!
