ca466 - Yonograph - Silent Opening
Title: Silent Opening
Keywords: folk; rock; acoustic
Originally released in 2008 in a limited handmade CD package, "Silent Opening" is an intimate folk/rock debut album from the french songwriter Yonograph (Yohann Antignac).
After playing in different bands and artistic projects, Yohann played solo on stage in 2006 under the name of "Yoan and the Silent Phonograph".
Why this name? Maybe to refer to the good old music values which disappeared day after day...or maybe just because of the worry of feeling lonely on stage.
The "one man band" became Yonograph in 2010 after many gigs everywhere in France...

ca458 - Mua - Mua (EP)
Title: Mua (EP)
Keywords: post-punk; lo-fi; experimental; rock
If a personality was a house, these songs would be found in its dark corners.
All houses are alike. The same rooms. Necessary things carry out its usual functions. The interior is never good enough... So unevident and hidden (perhaps even from the eyes of the owner) is much more interesting. Though there is little fun in concealed and intentionally forgotten stuff. Minor mental pathologies. Some rusted mechanisms of emotions forming. A thick dust layer of loneliness. In fine, things that make you fell like a hero of Ellise`s "Glamorama" asking: “Who the hell is Mua?" And get no clear answer.
Если представить личность человека как дом, то эти песни найдены в тёмных его углах.
Ведь все дома в целом похожи. Те же комнаты. Необходимые в быту предметы выполняют одинаковые фунцкии. Интерьер всегда недостаточно хорош... Интересно же неочевидное. Скрытое, возможно, даже от глаз хозяина. Хотя в потаенном и намеренно забытом мало веселого. Мелкие психические патологии. Заржавевшие механизмы формирования эмоций. Толстый слой пыли одиночества. В общем, такие вещи, которые позволяют уподобившись герою «Гламорамы» Эллиса задаться вопросом «кто же такой этот гребаный Муа?» и не получить внятного ответа.

Two New Music videos
Here's two animated music videos I've made recently... they're a little bit different from each other in both tone and content... anyway...

ca449 - 16 Lovers Lane - Don’t Try To Push Me (EP)
Artist: 16 Lovers Lane
Title: Don’t Try To Push Me (EP)
Keywords: dream pop; post-rock; indie; psy-folk
“Don’t try to push me” is a 4 songs EP: Lay down has always been fun to play, and its recording has a very good melancholic feel to it, a “Take me out tonight” languor. Inside outside has a middle-eight part that made us realize how beautiful we could get working on harmony and colors. David is one of the first songs we have written and one of the hardest to work out: we wanted a perfect sound for a song that matters a lot to us (it is, in fact, our humble homage to David Foster Wallace's work). Death by love is a lullaby for another day, and our very first song too.
16 Lovers Lane are a band from Verona, Italy. The members are: Michele Segàla (guitar, vocals), Giulia-Giorgia Quaggiotto (electric piano, keyboards, programming, vocals), Federico Di Fonte (bass). “Don’t try to push me” is their first release.

ca448 - Fake Plastic Heads - keeping an eye on the ones who deserve it
Artist: Fake Plastic Heads
Title: keeping an eye on the ones who deserve it
Keywords: industrial; rock; noise; experimental; electronica
This album was recorded from early 2005 to 2006, collecting and gathering various states of mind and giving this journey one particular look and feel. Like all journeys, this album has its ups and downs, creating a unique universe that some individuals might be able to build a connection to. Being on the darker side of life, with all senses as sharp as knives, the album itself might be regarded as a companion - the one who is always there by your side; never giving up and still hoping to reduce the impact of suffering.
Fake Plastic Heads is the solo-project of multimedia artist and graphic designer Charles S. Kuzmanovic.

ca446 - Opa! - Nakurlah
Artist: Opa! (Опа!)
Title: Nakurlah (Накурилах)
Keywords: world; russian klezmer; soviet pop; nostalgic kitsch; brass; experimental; acoustic
"Opa!" unites musicians from different parts of the huge area of the former USSR, who once met in Saint Petersburg, multicultural capital of Russia. Their music expresses freedom and euphoria of post-soviet spirit and ancient enigma of Russian Soul. Openhearted shows, multilingual lyrics of "Opa!" and their willingness to give it all to the audience make this wild positive folk remarkable and understandable for everybody.

ca440 - Utrovortu - Byt' kak myshi-polevki (Feeling like a campagnol)
Title: Byt' kak myshi-polevki (Feeling like a campagnol)
Keywords: abstract; post-punk; lo-fi; spoken word; psychedelic rock; psy-folk; experimental; free improv; electronic; other
Here you can find works of the band "Golubi i bezumnye kashevary" as well as some relatively new projects like "Cherv i Pylajushie Verholazy" ("A Worm and The Flaming Steeplejacks"), "Kapitan Borozda" ("Captain Furrow") and "TRESNI". There are also recordings that can not be exactly identified, though in this case any identification is quite relative anyway - sometimes the boundary between different projects is rather fuzzy.
Здесь можно встретить работы как ансамбля "Голуби и Безумные Кашевары", так и относительно новых проектов "Червь и Пылающие Верхолазы", "Капитан Борозда" и "ТРЕСНИ". Присутствуют также записи, не поддающиеся определённой идентификации, хотя какая-либо идентификация здесь немного условна - не всегда понятно, где кончается один проект и где начинается другой.

ca436 - pandoras.box - Monomeet (EP)
Title: Monomeet (EP)
Keywords: alternative; space pop; electronica; rock
Just at the beginning of 2011, pandoras.box seem define the state of the art of modern Rock Music. A Soundtrack about a time full of global change, desperation, nervousness, youth and dead future. What the Southern Germany based quintet has on offer on their second album is pop and zeitgeist. But rather of the dark, gloomy, demanding and sophisticated kind. Terms like Spacerock, Shoegazer or Neo Classic spring to mind. Sophisticated arrangements of orchestral strings and subtle piano melodies meet the cold light of flickering laptop screens. PANDORAS.BOX take their time to create moods and sounds but they don’t forget the rhythmic foundations that endow the majestic compositions with a certain lightness.
MONOMEET is about art, about music – music you have to make, music that defines our little weary heads. It´s about searching for alternatives and meeting yourself in truth. This is an album, a documentation of a time of changes – a story...
This is an exclusive "Monomeet" Mini Compilation for Clinical Archives.

ca435 - Stefano Ferrian's dE-NOIZE Project - Chapter #01 Amphetamine
Artist: Stefano Ferrian's dE-NOIZE Project
Title: Chapter #01 Amphetamine
Keywords: improv; avant-garde
Stefano Ferrian’s dE-NOIZE is a sort of solo project free from every musical inhibition, genres or mental pattern.
It’s like a musical puzzle focused on human addictions, especially to drugs. Every release will be one piece of the puzzle that it is supposed to be endless.
Every release will be unique but inevitably connected to the next one by the main concept of the series.
Drugs addiction will just be a metaphor of a bigger concept based upon the human inclination to slavery in all its form.
Stefano Ferrian plays Alto/Tenor Saxophones, Electric Guitar, Metak Weevil, Bass, Synths, Drum Programming, Voice, Editing.
