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:

End of the year is too often full of questioning about the passing year. Instead of moralising, Slovenian independent label Moonlee Records rather offers you first single »Ako nisam dobra« (And If I’m Not Good) from Croatian post-punk trio Vlasta Popić, whose new album »Kvadrat« will be released late January 2015. You can listen to loudy and noisy »Ako nisam dobra« on Moonlee Bandcamp profile, where it is available also for free download.
New album by Vlasta Popić entitled «Kvadrat» will be released late January 2015 on Moonlee Records as CD and 12“ vinyl, as well as free download via Bandcamp. Vinyl will be released in coproduction with Numavi Records (Austria) and Vox Project (France).
Christmas-newyear’s period is supposed to be the gifting time. But what if one wasn’t good enough throughout the year and didn’t deserve the gifts? F**k it, listen to »Ako nisam dobra«, given away by Moonlee Records, and bravely jump into 2015. Cheers!
Slovenian hardcore veterans Iamdisease released their new album entitled »Praznina« today, December 16th 2014, for slovenian independent label Moonlee Records. It is released as a CD and also as free download via Bandcamp, where each music fan can (ab)use “name-your-price” option and support the band and the label.
Iamdisease, hardcore veterans from Slovenia with members of acts such as Man In The Shadow, Low Punch, The Hoax Problem & Elodea, released their second album entitled »Praznina«, on which they continue where they left off with their previous album. The tradition of metallized hardcore of the early 90’s is here further extended and combined with Black Flag’s proto-sludge and the hybrid application of various extreme metal subgenres, predominantly black and death metal. Clocking just under 25 minutes, these 7 new tracks offer a consistent execution of fast-paced rhythms, jangly, dark guitar riffs with discordant melodic passages and precise bass lines under a rasp, angry vocal that delivers engaged messages to the listener.
Moonlee Records released new EP by croatian punkrockers Debeli Precjednik / Fat Prezident entitled “Povijest bolesti” (History of Illness) to celebrate 20th-anniversary of band’s existance. They keep it simple – 4 new songs, 4 new punkrock hits.
EP “Povijest bolesti” is available only as free download at Bandcamp platform, where each music fan can use »name-your-price« option and support the label and the band.
However, we decided to make one step more. Even though “Povijest bolesti” EP is currently released as a free download, with your help it can appear also on 7” vinyl. If we manage to collect enough money abusing »name-your-price« option at Moonlee Records and Debeli Precjednik Bandcamp, Moonlee Records will press 500 copies of “Povijest bolesti” 7” EP.
The idea is simple:
–> If we manage to collect 1200 € via Bandcamp, Moonlee Records will release “Povijest bolesti” as a 7″ vinyl in 500 copies.
–> Those who will donate 5 € or more, will automatically receive 7″ when it comes out (shipping costs are included).
–> To make it as transparent as possible, we will post how much we gathered on a weekly basis.
–> If we won’t make it in the end, too bad, but keep in mind that you still supported Debeli Precjednik & Moonlee Records. And we appreciate it!
But hey, together we can make it!
The restless Macedonian punk rockers known as Xaxaxa have a new album out!
It’s entitled «Sami Maži i Ženi» and will be released 8th September as a split release between Moonlee Records and Prügelprinz Records!
Although Xaxaxa have retained their signature, Revolution Summer-influenced sound, «Sami maži i ženi» sounds a bit different than before – slightly slower, more melancholic and definitely more melodic, a change in sound also influenced by the addition of Deni Krstev from Fonija on second guitar. Nevertheless, it’s an amazing record and possibly the best Xaxaxa album so far!
The album will be available on CD and 12“vinyl and as a free download on Bandcamp, as usual. Also, they’ll be embarking on a European tour these days, so check the dates and come see Xaxaxa if they play anywhere near you!
