Born (1971) in the historic city of Constanța beside the Black Sea, Gili Mocanu is widely known as an accomplished and unique Romanian painter whose work has been shown in numerous major galleries and museums across the world. Inspired by a generation of avant-garde Romanian composers like Iancu Dumitrescu, Octavian Nemescu and Ștefan Niculescu, Gili has also been consistently involved in sound recording since the early ‘90s, and under his long-running Somnoroase Păsărele and Centrul Isteric guises, sometimes in collaboration with others, his music has evolved its own distinctive character. Employing atypical synth sounds, spectralist techniques, and asymmetrical or non-rhythmic elements, the results have included excursions into minimalist, ambient and drone territory.

hyacinth. – seasonal hits MC
For anyone who has not yet had the pleasure, hyacinth is a non-binary native artist living in Portland, Oregon. You may also know their work under the moniker qualchan (again, always lower case!) Last year when Covid hit, hyacinth’s partner lost their job and they relied on hyacinth’s artistic output to keep on top of the bills. In order to make the most of the Bandcamp Fridays, hyacinth launched a new seasonal EP every month. These EPs were released on the Peradam Tapes label as digital downloads. We’re very happy to collect these EPs together and present them as one conveniently cassette-sized cassette.SKU: SBCA093
Menhir – Sound Track CD
Sound Track, part of Menhir’s Desert Series is inspired by the Sahara desert and the saharaui refugee camps. It is the soundtrack of the documentary “My first life”, by the Mexican filmmaker Carlos Hernández. The film describes the birth and first days of a child in the camps. The music is composed with analog synths, voices, and electric guitars, mixed with medieval cellos and sandstorms, in 6 music pieces of ritual ambient. Recorded live in the studio, it’s music conceived to overflow the inside-out. A song that is a message, dream wrapped. The changeless time, pulling us as sandstorms. The possible sun and light.SKU: SBCA034
Corticem – Planetarium CD
Corticem are an experimental rock trio based in Krakow, Poland formed by former members of Sawak. After losing their rehearsal/recording space, the trio quickly took action and recorded sessions to tape using whatever they could hastily pack up around them: a theremin-like feedback loop from a cigarette pack-sized amp held up to the guitar pickup, multi-tracked bowed cymbals, a single mic on a drum kit running through a broken amp, reversed drums, the walls, anything. The resulting work is a modern kosmische classic that sounds as if it were from another planet.SKU: SBCA063
