REW<< Twin EP Cassette Release

Nageire and KuruvungnaWe’re very excited to announce the official release of Nagiere and Kuruvungna, two stunning new EPs from US artist REW<<. Both EPs are available as limited edition cassette and digital release through Katuktu Collective and Hidden Shoal.

REW<< (Ryan Weber) follows up the release of May’s Salix Babylonica EP with two further neo-classical EPs of exquisite poise. Like the sound of post-ambient duo A Winged Victory for the Sullen unfurling in time-lapse, each EP feels like a melancholic soundtrack to an unseen nature documentary, wistful, mesmeric and full of detail. Rather than aiming for expansiveness, the discreet and patient nature of each track makes its own subtle yet profound gestures, creating a set of miniature interconnected ecosystems that reward close listening.

REW<< is the solo moniker of Ryan E. Weber, who originally hails from the Western shores of Lake Michigan. His previous bands include Camden, The Promise Ring and Decibully, and he is one half of dream-pop duo Eric & Magill. Working on Eric & Magill releases while living in both Kenya and the Republic of Armenia, Weber collaborated over the internet with a host of notable contemporary indie artists, including members of Shearwater, The Dirty Projectors, Owen, Volcano Choir and The Delgados.

The music of REW<<  is available for licensing for film, tv, web, games and beyond via Hidden Shoal. Check here for more info.

“I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for artists releasing music on the Perth, Australia based label Hidden Shoal. They seem to find artists creating music on the periphery of ambient and neo-classical that melts with a certain kind of sweetness and gentleness. REW<< is certainly no exception, built around a looped piano line and vinyl, analog sounding drones -the main melodic through line of “Sonoran” is a beautiful piece of sepia-tinged nostalgia. Wonderful stuff from this artist and label.”Tome to the Weather Machine

New Moonchy & Tobias Music Video

AtmosfereWe’re excited to present the music video for ‘Lo Sguardo’ from Moonchy & Tobias. The track is lifted from Atmosfere, the stunning second album by the cross-continental art-rock duo. The video, produced by Budano Lino, is available now via YouTube.  Atmosfere is out through Tiny Room Records and Hidden Shoal and is available via Bandcamp and all the usual suspects including Spotify.

“A journey through the most diverse, beautiful musical landscapes”Dark Life Experience on Moonchy & Tobias

After the exhilarating psychedelic ride of their acclaimed debut, Moonchy & Tobias’s new album Atmosfere is more subdued and subtly intoxicating. Multi-instrumentalist Todd Tobias has crafted a series of bright, labyrinthine soundscapes within which vocalist Pat Moonchy luxuriantly weaves. While the songs on their debut were sung in an imaginary language, here Moonchy sings in her native Italian. Atmosfere feels like a sun-dappled morning after Moonchy & Tobias’s intoxicating dark night of the soul. It’s the perfect companion – but also a succinct and compelling stand-alone that is as beautiful as it is mysterious.

As always this music is available for licensing for film, tv, games and more through Hidden Shoal.

New Single And Japanese Tour for The World of Dust

Yellow FangsIn celebration of their upcoming tour in Japan, we’re excited to present the new single and music video from The World of Dust. The music video, produced by Stefan Breuer, is a whimsical montage of collages and landscape videos made in Norway & Sweden in the summer of 2019. The track is lifted from Samsara, available now via Tiny Room Records.

THE WORLD OF DUST JAPAN TOUR 2019:

05-oct-2019: Give Me Little More, 松本 Matsumoto
06-oct-2019: Space Eauuu, 神戸 Kobe
07-oct-2019: K.D.Japon, 名古屋 Nagoya
09-oct-2019: Hard Rain, 大阪 Osaka
10-oct-2019: Toonice, 高松 Takamatsu
11-oct-2019: Space O92, 広島 Hiroshima
12-oct-2019: Home, 渋谷 Shibuya, Tokyo

Samsara is effectively a full-length collaboration between The World of Dust’s Stefan Breuer and Todd Tobias (Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, Circus Devils). Previously contributing keyboard arrangements for 2015’s World of Dust album Womb Realm, Tobias created all the instrumental backdrops for Samsara’s evocative songs. A shadowy universe of forlorn beauty, this lo-fi bedroom pop experiment is shrouded in elemental imagery and laden with ennui. Intimate and wistful, Samsara mines a similarly rich emotive seam to Norwegian slowcore legends The White Birch.

The process for Samsara saw Tobias send Breuer 26 instrumental ideas, from which Breuer chose those which resonated with him most. Over the course of nearly two years, Breuer wrote and refined an especially personal suite of lyrics, reflecting his struggles with his mental health and his experience of becoming a father. The result is World of Dust’s most fully realised and vivid album to date.

All tracks from Samsara as well as the music of Todd Tobias  is available for licensing for film, tv, web, games and beyond via Hidden Shoal. Check here for more info.

“By any other Name” RTRFM Feature Album and Interview

By any other nameThe sublime new Hidden Shoal remix compilation, By any other name, is this week’s RTRFM local feature album! Tracks will be featured on a range of shows across the week so be sure to tune in.  Be sure to also check out the wonderful interview at the station with Ben Da Cruz and Sue Summers on the processes and ideas behind the album. The album is available now as a free download via Bandcamp and to stream via Spotify and SoundCloud.

For By any other name, Hidden Shoal invited a number of emerging Perth artists to rework a selection of tracks from the label’s catalogue. With 11 artists reimagining tracks by Target Archery, Erik Nilsson, Glanko & Daniel Bailey, Summon the Birds, Chloe March and Isophene, what’s most striking about By any other name is both the expansive nature of the individual tracks, and the cohesiveness of the overall listening experience.

By any other name features remixes by Boy In Nature, Austy, Alexi, Michael Tyrie, Sue Summers, Ryan Jose, Daniel Zinetti, Crier, Cron, Shane Isard and JW. Boy In Nature infuses the languid tones of Target Archery’s ‘Opium Den’ with an effervescent buoyancy. On Michael Tyrie’s reimagining of Summon the Birds’ ‘Tactile Hallucination’, the structure of the song is inverted, with the epic climax acting as a cinematic scene-setter. Cron’s re-envisioning of Glanko & Bailey’s ambient masterpiece ‘Adiaphora’ injects the original with urgency without losing its sense of grandeur. And Daniel Zinetti’s brilliant deconstruction of Chloe March’s ‘Old Tree Mon Coeur’ breaks the original into a thousand pieces and then ejects them into space.

As always this music is available for licensing for film, tv, games and more through Hidden Shoal.
