Lieven Martens releases new lp on Ediçoes CN by Christina Vantzou

On Multi Natural you get acquainted again with Christina’s organic chamber music. Yet these nine tracks somehow feel different. We enter nine composed chambers. Nine rooms to inhabit, constructed out of elements that are slowly fusing. The album is a string of semi constant metamorphosis. A gesture appears, is elaborated upon—or is halted and replaced by a new gesture. Multi Natural has multi focal points, quite dissimilar to Christina’s other works that tend to have a more linear path.

More info and 2 tracks to listen to via the Bandcamp page.
The album is out in July.

Club Mayz channels authentic italo disco synths in karaoke anthem

Remember the karaoke days? Made with only a a MicroKorg and a mic, ”Penguins Can’t Fly” is a magnifcent slice of italo disco karaoke from Belgium. As a tribute to the Ghent based italo night Pingwing, it became a bit of a local underground hit which lead to Club Mayz performing it live at one of the parties at the Museum for Contemporary Art (SMAK) in Ghent – once. The track never
saw the light of day until now Berlin based label Ca$hminus is stoked to send it out into the world.

Check the full clip here. You can buy the 7inch via the Bordello A Paragi label page or soon at your local record store.
