SFA031 - Didi&Pedro - RHIZ

Didi Kern: drums, percussion

Petr Vrba: trumpet, vibrating speakers

The Viennese drummer Didi Kern (bulbul, broken heart
collector, fuckhead) sometimes plays a trumpet. The Prague trumpetist Petr Vrba
(los amargados, iq+1, rouilleux) sometimes plays drums. After meeting two years
ago on stage they occasionally meet and work with joy and love to create space
where static structures quickly change, where silence and noise are a pleasure,
and sound is equal to music. Delight for those who enjoy live, changeable,
sometimes smooth but mostly raw music.

SFA030 - the meme - 2

The meme are an experimental sound duo from Chicago. Jeffrey
Kmieciak (lap steel guitar, electronics) and Milan Bobysud (electronics) create
textured soundscapes using a lap steel guitar, analog synthesizers,
drum-machines and a variety of processors. The resulting sound ranges from
pastoral psychedelia and gentle ambience through drone and motorik minimalism
all the way to sinister noise. The duo's improvised performances feature
abstract video backgrounds collaged from found footage films and other
re-purposed visuals.

2 is the meme's 2nd official release (1 came
out on cassette earlier this year on particle tapes). The two tracks of
this EP were recorded live in studio sessions in the summer of 2014.
