Massive innaugural release for this new label from New York City , featuring 32 tracks. The sound of this international collection of bands ranges from uptempo analog synthesizer based on electronic dance music influenced by early minimal synth and industrial dance to post-wave guitar driven music suggesting the influence of the European cold-wave and classic British and American post-punk sounds. 3xLP plus a 7" accompanied by a superb glossy print book containing over 500 pictures of the bands.

solidaire

3.90€

Artist : Blacklist 

Label : Wierd Records 

solidaire / CD

Inspired by groups such as The Comsat Angels, The Manic Street Preachers, Suede, The Sound, and For Against, Blacklist is simultaneously celebratory and melancholy, replacing the hysterical protest song of the 20th century with anthems for a new generation weaned on amusement and starved for confrontation. "Solidaire" is a warning shot ep featuring the propulsive cosmological love anthem, "Blue Shifted",the filthy, sexy ode to George Orwell and P.O.U.M., "Shock In The Hotel Falcon", and their version of one of the classic tracks of the French coldwave, "Pure Joy In My Heart". Cosmopolitan coldwave rock and roll, bridging the gap between the north of France and Budokan, from the pathologically mobilized world outside to the elusive human experience. Brrrr

wierd compilation vol.II / 4x12"

This second compilation is a true art piece. It comes adorned with one of founder and venerated New York artist Pieter Schoolwerth’s paintings and includes a lengthy, full-size booklet that captures images of the bands and patrons of Wierd. Just as tantalizing to the eye as it is to the ear, fans of the abstract and the post-modern, early synth and contemporary noise should surely take note. Even if you’re miles away from the Lower East Side, you can still experience the very rare in the cold, dark confines of your home. Simply Enormous !

the brutal wave

14.50€

Artist : Frank (just Frank) 

Label : Wierd Records 

the brutal wave / LP

Debut album from Frank (just Frank) from Paris entitled "The Brutal Wave". It draws from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively. Equally of disparate origins are the band members themselves, Chris was born in New Jersey and grew up with half-Indian Kirti in the South of France, although both were schooled in London. Despite such varied influences and backgrounds, Frank (just Frank) indeed proudly embrace the French pop musical tradition and present a freshly recontextualized version of the French cold-wave sound. The album presents a carefully crafted set of 9 tracks in which shiver-inducing swathes of guitars, restrained and mournful, battle alongside and often it seems directly against bitingly insistent vocals, that effortlessly switch between French and English. No lyrical themes are off limits for the apparently fearless young band, as the poetically flowing voice espouses tales ranging from provocatively 'centrist' takes on international politics to vulnerably personal epics of heartbreak and addiction, and these tensions between right and left, darkness and light, and private versus public consistently replay themselves throughout the record, both in the lyrical content and the musical dynamics at work. This powerfully emotional record is made with simultaneous confrontation and restraint, as well as viscerally sensitized homemade diy intimacy and feverishly swaggering aggression, and it is this balancing act and interplay of extremes that Frank (just Frank) harnesses to carve out "The Brutal Wave" ..!

Artist : Automelodi 

Label : Wierd Records 

untitled / LP

Self-titled debut lp from Montreal's Automelodi (aka Xavier Paradis) who has long garnered a cult underground following with his solo minimal synth project Arnaud Lazlaud active in Canada since the late 90's. Automelodi (formed in 2006) combines guitars with synthesizers and drum machines to create a truly idiosyncratic, cerebrally sophisticated, and elegantly composed album of modern minimal electronic music.. Highly unique for a North American band in 2010, Automelodi proudly embraces the infinitely rich ground of French pop musical influences, classic French cold-wave & minimal synth, and early UK new-wave. The album carefully weaves together a series of hook-laden uptempo pop trax with a set of stylishly confident, yet vulnerably melancholic downtempo songs that allow the listener to catch his misty breath in the mix, with nearly all vocals smoothly delivered in French. As is often the case within French literature, poetry, and pop musical history the freely associative, intuitive and often dreamlike play of language and the voice is of prime importance to the band. And indeed for the English-speaking listener in particular, the vocals function as an additional flowing and soaring instrument in the mix as well as a mysteriously mediating force that provocatively obscure the lyrical narratives at work, while carefully playing off of both the icily detached guitars and the warmly, organic electronics. An amazing balancing act it is, and negociating this plethora of conflicting forces within the record is quite an exciting sonic event to experience... welcome to the world of Automelodi ;)

you today / 7"

1st 7" single for the title track off of the forthcoming new full-length album from Martial Canterel entitled "You Today". Since his 1st live performances in 2002, Sean McBride, aka Martial Canterel (who also performs as half of the duo Xeno & Oaklander), has produced a rich catalog of self-released and limited edition LPs, cassettes, and compilation tracks. The carefully crafted, private, raw, and often feverishly aggressive minimal-synth sound he has pioneered has been a pillar influence for the Brooklyn minimal electronics scene and and beyond. "You Today" incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and swagger between major and minor keys, emanating a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Thoughtful yet distinctly danceable and infectious, the 2 songs on this gem of a disc are the apex of McBride's icily idiosyncratic oeuvre...

you today / LP

New lp by Martial Canterel entitled "You Today". It incorporates bright, urgent melodies that snake and swagger between major and minor keys. The songs emanate a subtle melancholic darkness and a rhythmic, militant propulsion keeping things moving against all odds. Lyrically, the album continues McBride's exploration of the increasing difficulty in trying to connect with real people and real things as technology renders the material substance of bodies and objects ever more abstract and distant. This yearning for unmediated human contact with the world is appropriately echoed throughout the album by the hands-on, entirely live approach to recording and performance. "Market" and "Sidestreets" each delve into the disconcerting atmospheres of crowds, buildings, objects and intimates; the city with its boulevards, by-ways, and dead ends complicating the meeting of 2 lost and wandering figures. The restrained, sensual haze of "The Empty Sand" conjures oceanic imagery while the title track is a lament to love lost, ambiguously addressing the listener as a memory image of potential connection and attraction. The solitary listener can certainly enjoy the music of Martial Canterel, but its visceral intensity also translates directly to the dancefloor. Amidst a flurry of flesh in motion, in a blissful atmosphere of material connection with others, the concepts that permeate the music and its creation become a reality.. One of the best albums of 2010 !!

desespero

Artist : Staccato Du Mal 

Label : Wierd Records 

desespero / 7"

1st single "Desespero" from Staccato Du Mal's forthcoming debut album "Sin Destino". S.D.M. is the solo project of Ramiro Jeancarlo from Miami, who has long been a beloved member of the Wierd Records family (performing as a member of both Opus Finis and Flesh Graey Display and appearing on both of the Wierd compilation collections). Staccato Du Mal summons the hot and dirty post-coital Miami sun, performing on entirely homemade and modified analogue gear, to produce a menacingly nihilistic, sinister sound seething with wild confrontational energy. Sung almost entirely in Spanish, the forthcoming debut album is informed by Jeancarlo's half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that is no doubt a product of living within the mini-mall infested suburbs that sprawl across the dry, lonely landscape of South Florida. Despite this disorienting feeling, there are inspired moments of resolution where warm, delicately sensitized melodies and sparkling psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On "Desepero", Jeancarlo’s please to "let me in, I want in" are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessibly inviting synth-pop background. Tip !!

vigils

12.49€

Artist : Xeno & Oaklander 

Label : Wierd Records 

vigils / LP

Originally self-released by the band as a limited edition CD-r in 2006, here is the remastered LP version with a previously unavailable bonus track. Merging the cold, cinematic aesthetics of artist Liz Wendelbo with the architectural exactitude of Sean McBride (aka Martial Canterel), Xeno & Oaklander have been the sharpest spearheads of 21th century minimal-synth since their formation in 2004. Using analogue synthesizers and instruments exclusively, the duo record all of their songs live in the studio, a challenge to the common practice of cut and paste recording where immediacy is often sacrificed in favor of a far-removed drag and drop electronic pop. Recorded in one continuous take on October 1st 2006, and played to loving death by all of the Dj's at the weekly Wierd party for the past 4 years, "Vigils" has long been a cornerstone and inspiration to a new young generation of electronic bands in the Brooklyn synth scene and beyond. Uptempo, echo-laden synthesizers and drum machines provide a spacious backdrop for Miss Liz's ephemeral vocal presence. Their melodic, mournful oeuvre is an invocation of a lost future that was abandoned years ago in favor of something less human. These 8 tracks are both fragile and psychedelic, suggesting an electronic equivalent of the British shoegaze bands while maintaining the wildly aggressive stripped-down, raw and unmediated spirit of punk and the seminal industrial noise groups that informed the ideals of the original wave of European minimal electronic bands.

occupy these terms / 7"

"Occupy These Terms" is the 2nd single from Martial Canterel's new album "You Today". The A-side is an aggressively raw uptempo dancefloor track backed by a fiercely melodic hook in the vein of "Windscreen" and so many classic Canterel's tracks. "The Case" is a moody midtempo song available exclusively as a B-side on this release. Tip !!

Artist : Kindest Lines 

Label : Wierd Records 

covered in dust / LP

"Covered In Dust" is the debut Lp from Louisiana's Kindest Lines, opens suitably with a beat that sounds a lot like like an industrial rendition of The Ronettes 'Be My Baby'. Brian Wilson cited that song by the legendary New York girl group as the greatest pop recording ever, and many refer to it as the perfect example of Phil Spector's 'wall of sound' production. Those artists established many of the templates for how modern music is made, but what still stands out is the sense of that music having been simply dreamed-up. With organic washes of layered melodic guitars and lush songcraft, this New Orleans-based trio is definitely doing some dreaming of their own. Kindest Lines are blazing a unique path into an enchanting realm of darkened electronic indie pop that is at once welcoming and foreboding. Huge ;)

sets & lights / CD

Xeno & Oaklander create a universe where technology is beautifully timeless, where electricity pulses with vigor and effortless finesse. The standard meaning of 'ghosts of technology', with its equally standard images of looming architecture and lifeless shells of machines, is rendered obsolete. Nimble electronic melodies sing, stretch and glow like elegant apparitions. Grandiosity and restraint live harmoniously side-by-side, just as the dual vocals of McBride and Wendelbo weave in and out of one another, sometimes an isolated croon and sometimes a layered texture. From the title track, with its thumping robotic heartbeat to the orchestral (yet still danceable), transportive instrumental, 'Sets & Lights' is a record that invites the listener to become fully immersed. Tracks like "Blue" and "The Staircase" are punchy sing-a-long industrial pop songs while "Desert Rose" uses lush synthesizer textures to rival the most forlorn folk balladeer. The interplay between McBride and Wendelbo yields very little that is conventional, but quite a lot that's alluring. There's an enigmatic combination of various sensibilities that nevertheless produces a singularly focused vision. McBride sings, 'the theater, the stage, the sets the lights, masking some grand delight'. This is a record that makes the most of the power of electronic instruments to set a scene, to evoke intrigue, and to invite the mind to wander into those shadowy places where grand delights hide..

sin destino

22.99€

Artist : Staccato Du Mal 

Label : Wierd Records 

sin destino / LP

New Lp by Staccato du Mal. Freezing out the heat-seeking Miami scene with his cold minimal-synth for the past decade, Ramiro Jeancarlo (half of the industrial outfit Opus Finis) offers up 10 tracks of analogue darkness. Sung in both English and Spanish, the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that without a doubt evokes the brutally hot, dry, lonely landscape of suburban South Florida. But beyond the dismal swamplands, it's possible to detect the mournful ambiance of cultures plagued for centuries by colonization, civil war and political turmoil. Whether Jeancarlo means to offer "Salvation Through Suffering" as an alternative to everything from catholicism to revolutions-turned-tyrannies is not explicit, but the distinctive mood of dread conjures something more monolithic than plain nihilism. Therein lies the fascinating duality: "Lost Image" could as easily land in a soundtrack to a film about a lonesome teen in desolate suburbia as it could a film about Pinochet's Caravan of Death. Despite the disorienting feeling of so much of the album, Staccato's own 'coup d'état' comes in the moments of resolution where warm melodies and nearly psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. While this album could be described as Wierd Records' least commercial release so far, Staccato Du Mal's music is rich with sonic feeling that makes for infinitely rewarding listening. Working within the confines of the minimal-synth genre, Jeancarlo manages to include elements of pop, noise, and industrial that slink to the surface with each eerie listen. Tip !!

untitled / CD

Here is Frank Alpine (aka Rich Moreno)'s eponymous debut LP for Wierd Records is L.A. noir at its finest: a frenzy of claustrophobic, danceable dread that skirts the line between outer-directed nihilistic aggression and fragrant introversion. Nocturnal synthesizers, isolated, frenetic, and monotonous, plot a destination either to somewhere new and uncertain, or perhaps to nowhere at all. While many contemporary electronic artists' sound hints, however heavily or slightly, towards a European sensibility, Frank Alpine lives more in the realm of David Lynch's disturbed Americana, or the sinister aggression of no-wave. Somewhere between the warped intensity of the former and the acidic straightforwardness of the latter, Alpine has carved out his distinctive space: an eccentric loner squealing from inside the decay, making noise with a pulse that's paranoid and mechanical, yet unmistakably human.
