NEW ARRIVALS SEPTEMBER

Proper Sunburn (forgotten sunscreen applied by Basso)

 
Style: Growing Bin Classics

Format: 2LP
Label: Music For Dreams

Year: 2019

Condition: M/M 

 

Finally! Been working on this for ages and now it's here.

Coming straight from the heart and my burned back.

Anyway here's what my friend Patrick says about :


Armed with birdsong, backbeat and Spanish guitar, Hans Hass says hello via the sumptuous Austrian Balea-rock of 'Welche Farbe Hat Der Wind', an AOR albatross which soars high above the cliff tops, chills on the jet-stream then dives deep into scat silliness. This impactful opener gives way to cucumber cool 'The Dawn', a forgotten jazz break from stoner heroes DJ Food built entirely from tender tabla, horizontal synthlines and positive energy - strictly high grade folks...

How do you follow such a downbeat delight? With something from Golden Pudel resident and acid-techno warlock RVDS of course! But before you raid your medicine cabinet, remember that beauty can be found everywhere, and nestled away in Richard von der Schulenburg's 2016 outing "Shadows" was ketamine bossa lullaby 'Minuet de Vampire'. As the clean bass tones and simple rhythm stroll through the shadows, a haunting harp line tugs at your heartstrings, pulling you into the light and holding you tight. The harp-healing continues on Horizont's 'Light Of Darkness', an esoteric odyssey with the greatest key change you'll ever hear, and a dreamy segue into Xiame's sedate jazz-pop pearl 'Nosso Destino'.

Basso brings the first disc to a close with an all time Growing Bin favourite, Mico Layczak. Here the NDW queen is in more restrained mode, conjuring an avant pop paradise with the atmospheric 'Im Garten' - a dead cert for any fans of MFD alumni 55 Canri E.

At the top of the C-side, Massimo Stella's 'C'è Una Donna Sola' explores another Growing Bin speciality - acceptable fusion. This sweet Mediterranean shuffler makes a delightful defence of jazz's most maligned sub-genre before the esoteric, organic and new age flavours intensify on Trimolo's 'Tempo 100', a subtle groover topped by breezy flute and clipped guitar licks. Moving from woodland to wave, Basso introduces a man who definitely wore his sunglasses at night, unsung synth popper Diedel. Eerie and emotional, 'Wo Seid Ihr' is the sound of Don Johnson driving that white Spyder down the autobahn at night.

Taking a turn towards the dance floor, Basso serves up Mikey D's 'I Need You', an exceptionally rare German streetsoul bomb in dubform, complete with sampled vox and high school prom vocals before flexing his scalpel skills via an expert extension of German rockers' Wolfsmond's groovy 'Fühl Dich Frei', a serious secret weapon for any Balearic DJ.

The tempo drops to a cinematic stroll with Ghia's 'You Won't Sleep On My Pillow', a sweet synth pop serenade which cuts straight to the heart of the break up, keeps its cool and soundtracks your slow dance at the end of the night. And to finish, how about the most moving electronic jam ever, Jean-Philippe Rykiel's "Fair Light", a shimmering, shining jazz-rock opus played entirely on synth.

So there you have it, a selection of rare cuts, Plattenrille discoveries, organic excursions and electric lullabies, all perfectly at home in the Growing Bin. Whether you're coping some rays, watering the plants or tackling the tax return, 'Proper Sunburn' will ensure you keep your cool and stay smiling.  Patrick Ryder

The high price is my fault. The first testpressings sounded rubbish to my ears so we've had mastering genius Sergey Luginin (thank you!!!!!!) rework the whole thing again. Especially the tunes we had to rip from original vinyl due to lacking masters sound soooo much better now!

 

Cheers, Basso

Dibidim - Riders

 
Style: Nordic Pop

Format: LP
Label: Snorkel Records

Year: 2003 / 2019

Condition: M/M 

 

It must have been a late, light summer night in 2003 that Ole (of Sonrokel records) first found himself standing, mesmerised, in his older brother’s bedroom, listening to some of the most exotic and beautiful music he had ever heard. Its origins were still a mystery, all he knew at that point was that as someone who had grown up on bands like a-ha, Röyksopp, Air, and Bent, this sounded like the perfect amalgam. A sort of best of-compilation. The soundscape was full of pristine contrasts: familiar but fresh, languid yet energetic. The melodies were contagious, delivered through lush, dreamy vocals and layered over a perfectly blended soundscape of vintage synths and drum machines. It was his new favourite band, and the best part was nearly no one knew about it. He was 16 years old, and here he was, holding the key to the next great chapter in music history.

Well it never came out until Ole and Snorri made this happen just now. A wonderful story to a wonderful record!

Andreas von Wangenheim - Pictures

 
Style: Ambient / New Age / Fricking Balearic

Format: LP
Label: Marlboro

Year: 1990

Condition: NM/VG+

 

What the hell did the people at Marlboro (yes the stupid cowboy ciggies) think when they teamed up with Virgin to establish a label and sign someone so gentle and esoteric like Andreas von Wangenheim? Change the whole cowboy image by releasing New Age music??

Whatever they thought - it's just fantastic that they released these wonderful songs. Calling it All killer, no filler doesn't really fit the New Age vibe, huh? But hey it's Marlboro :)  and it's shotgun recommended!
