box, fiddle and singing bowls. All the tracks on this album were recorded live
in one room. No overdubs were used.
Out on april 16th, "Objekts" by Aidan Baker, a collection of songs built around fragmentary guitar loops, layered with

We are proud to annouce our twentiest release available on february 1st
2016. "Limbo" by Filipe Felizardo & Margarida Garcia.
collaboration between Margarida Garcia and Filipe Felizardo is the final
result of a year in which the two musicians sporadically worked in duo.
Margarida Garcia plays the electric double bass in a vaporously
monumental way - she has played & plays with the likes of Loren
Connors, Manuel Mota, David Maranha, Marcia Bassett, and has recently
released an LP with Thurston Moore.
Filipe Felizardo plays electric
guitar, mostly focusing on his solo output, a fierce personal approach
to the blues tradition - when not playing with Gabriel Ferrandini and
Pedro Sousa or, also, as a member of David Maranha's Ensemble. His
records have been released by swiss label three:four.
Out on 12/12/2015 : "Promenade" by Goodbye Ivan (DVX017 - vinyl & digi).
Inspired by four years wandering the streets of Brooklyn, Goodbye
Ivan’s album "Promenade" captures the feeling of the city at different
moments throughout. This album is a real promenade, explorations of
Franklin Avenue being remade by gentrification, of being lost of
Atlantic Avenue, long and noisy, of passing a cushy life in a Stuyvesant
Avenue brownstone, of anxieties walking late through a blighted
Herkimer Place… a very cinematic and ambient music composed mostly of
electric guitars, and a lot of feedback.
November will see the release of :
- "Naam" by belgian guitarist Yadayn (cassette & digi)
- "La maison du déchaussé" by swiss trio Sinn/rd (cassette & digi)
- "Promenade" by Goodbye Ivan (vinyl & digi)
