Slovenian noise-rock trio Nikki Louder are announcing new, their fourth full-length album “Trout”, which will be released on December 15th 2015 on Moonlee Records and Založba Radia Študent. Impatient ones can already taste first single “Trout”, which is available for streaming and free download on Moonlee Bandcamp.
Nikki Louder is a noise rock trio coming from Kamnik area, Slovenia, whose three full-length albums (“Alain, I’m Sorry”, 2009; “Our World Died Yesterday”, 2011; Golden Men, 2013) were received very positively by critics and audiences. Nikki Louder’s past discographic efforts showed their ability to deliver a different, yet consistent signature sound that progressed further with each new release and ultimately made them the most skilled band of the genre in the area. Also their new material is offering usual messy and chaotic guitar/percussion interplay and noisy, rhythmic wall-of-sound textures, which altogether dominate the soundscape. Here comes “Trout” – feel free to serve yourself.
Avantgardni post-rock avdiovizualni kolektiv Majmoon iz Munchena se ponovno odpravlja na turnejo po Balkanu v okviru katere bo med 11. – 18. aprilom 2015 obiskal Slovenijo, Hrvaško, BiH in Srbijo.
Majmoon že 11 let raziskuje možnosti eksperimentalnega post-rocka v formi avdiovizualne interakcije. Tisti, ki bolje poznajo njihovo ustvarjalno moč smatrajo Majmoon za umetniški projekt in ne le še eden od preštevilnih bendov. V dobrem desetletju je Majmoon z glasbo opremil večje število filmskih projektov, hkrati pa izdal tudi 6 albumov, med katerimi velja izpostaviti zlasti dolgometražec »Procedure in a Case of Breakdown« (bluNoise, 2012) ter jubilarno CD/DVD izdajo ob desetletnici zasedbe »Ten years of Riot and Thinking Of You..« (bluNoise, 2013). Njihova glasba se definira kot avdiovizualna harmonija trancea, rocka, noisa in avdiokaosa.

Croatian post-punk trio Vlasta Popić started another tour through Balkans, on which they will perform in Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Romania and Hungary. On tour Vlasta Popić will promote their new album »Kvadrat«, which was released on Moonlee Records in January 2015.
Musically Vlasta Popić may be related to quite a few artists such as Repetitor, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Šarlo Akrobata, Nikki Louder, or even a bit of Bernays Propaganda and Karate. In any case, Vlasta Popić offers a nice mixture of genres that should satisfy a lot of broad and demanding musical tastes.

Psychadelic post-punk trio Vlasta Popić released its second full-length album »Kvadrat« today, on 28th January 2015, for Moonlee Records. It is released in CD format as well as free download via Bandcamp. 12“ vinyl will come out in March 2015 as a coproduction between Moonlee Records, Numavi Records from Austria and Vox Project from France.
Second album by croatian trio Vlasta Popić brings more of their beloved signature indie-punk-noise-nowave-pop expression, but this time with a darker, more sinister edge to it. The record sounds more ambitious, thought-out and coherent compared to the earlier release, and it does so by utilizing much dirtier, distorted and noisier playing and production. The combined female/male singalongs and shouts add true energy to occasionally melodic, oftentimes jangly atmosphere created by the underlying instrumental psychedelia. As far as similarities and influences go, “Kvadrat” may be related to quite a few artists such as Repetitor, Fugazi, Shellac, Nikki Louder, etc.
Live promotion of new Vlasta Popić album will happen on Thursday, 5th February 2015 in Gromka in Ljubljana, as a part of MENT Ljubljana – showcase festival & conference (4th-6th February 2015). It will be followed by bunch of shows in Slovenia & Croatia and Balkan tour in April:
