SEKs045 IMANDRA LAKE "AVANE"

As their first release in the 10th-anniversary-celebrating 2014, Seksound is delighted to present the second album from the shoe-gazing Imandra Lake - “Avane”.
Listening to Imandra Lake makes one think, and see, Estonian scenery at a specific time of the day. This association may seem bizarre, at first, as theirs is not folk music; it’s indie, worldwide sounds.
The emerging picture is pretty precise - it is afternoon, when time slows down;            a moment in early spring or late autumn, when shadows and light share proportions and the sun lacks its summery harshness. The snow is partly melted, water partly iceless, the sky partly cloudy, as always. The horizon displays “moist shadow of the woods” as described by an Estonian poetess. It is the world and time when hues
between black and white dominate. And it makes you think - why stress something every Estonian rather dreads and loathes? But the black and white pictures tend to be sharper and lighter than the coloured ones. Clear and shadowy at the same time. Imandra Lake creates landscapes of clear tones, slow breathing and much space for all this. A space rich in nuance.
Imandra Lake’s “Avane” is a perfect album for those who love walks in slowly echoing soundscapes with repetitive patterns of faded straws and clear, far sounds of the nineties shoegaze.

Galaktlan "Teletorni romantika" SEKs043LP 7"

 

Seksound is proud to present first 7” by Galaktlan with previously unreleased song “Teletorni romantika”.

Indie music fans from Tallinn seem to find TV-tower really romantic place. This mood is perfectly captured by Estonian veteran electronic artist Galaktlan. You can imagine yourself into the icy sky above psychedelic coastal town, where you’re surrounded by Galaktlan’s misty synths, and from somewhere you’ll catch 60s sci-fi flick’s exotic theme song, even though it’s Galaktlan playing solo on his self-built synthesizer. On B-side you’ll find reworking of “Drongam”, track from Galaktlan’s recent album “Second Memory” (released on CD by Seksound). Seksound recording artist Wolfredt has turned it into post-rock bliss. Taavi Laatsit has been active in the Estonian electronic music scene for 15 years already. During that time, he has released 7 full length albums as a member of different groups (Uni, Kismabande, Kulgurid) and also as a solo artist (Galaktlan, Vonsuck). Additionally, he has composed music for exhibitions and art projects. Since 2004, he has also been composing music for films. “Teletorni romantika” is limited to 300 copies!

PICNIC "The Weather's Fine"

 

Seksound presents The Weather's Fine, the new album by Estonia's Picnic, coming this May on limited edition LP vinyl (150 copies), CD and digital formats.
Picnic formed in 2006 by Marju Taukar, Andres Soosaar and Rivo Järvsoo. Marju and Andres were previously in 90s indie band Dreamphish and Rivo is a current member of Seksound label-mates Bad Apples. Picnic released their first album Winter Honey in 2010 and made their Shelflife debut last year with the now sold-out tribute 7" "We've Only Just Begun" b/w "Say a Little Prayer."
The Weather's Fine features 11 tracks recorded over the past year. The band decided to take a different approach for this record, primarily using a more relaxed home studio environment and Rivo taking the lead in handling most of the initial tracking himself. They only returned to the
studio for final mixing with help from friend Lauri Liivak (from Bizarre), who also worked on Pia Fraus' Silmi Island. The warmth of instrumentation on The Weather's Fine just feels comforting
in contrast to the frozen winter landscape in hometown Tallinn. When asked about the title for the album, Rivo explained, "We are quite obsessed with the weather here in Estonia and it shows in the lyrics of the album." Picnic have become masters at blending the ethereal and indie pop worlds, surrounding us throughout the album with spacious textures and glimmering oundscapes. The stunning beauty of their arrangements are filled with immaculate dream pop guitars and Marju's mesmerizing vocals. The Weather's Fine is an album that really begs to be absorbed all at once, from beginning to end.
The Weather's Fine is a co-release with Shelflife in USA.
For fans of: Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, Evening Lights, The Radio Dept., Pia Fraus, Ulrich Schnauss
