New Releases From Midira Records

Source: Midira Records.

N + [ B O L T ] come up with their third full length album. This time with a more dark attempt. They call it “black drone” and what you will hear on this album are very dark marching and swelling sounds. Maybe “heavy ambient” is also a good discription. Limited to 200 copies: 100 on black vinyl, 100 on red transparent vinyl.

Giulio Aldinucci & The Star Pillow teamed up as a north italian collaboration and the result is “Hidden”, a very intense and fragile album with a blend of ambient, electronic and field recordings. A floating and buzzing masterpiece.

SARRAM is the solo project of Valerio Marras, a sardinian guitarist, who recorded “Four Movements of a Shade”. This improvisational studio album features tracks, that move through massive drone soundwalls to fragile minimal sounds. A beautiful soundjourney, mastered by James Plotkin. Limited to 200 copies on CD with a dark artwork on a four panel digisleeve.
