last update: may 22nd 2013
jessica bailiff and boduf
songs just finished a joint european tour. to celebrate
that,we released a split 7". both artist rework one
of their finest songs from their recent backcatalogue.
just as on the tour, boduf songs brings a stripped down
version of decapitation blues. jessica bailiff toured
as a loud threepiece, but here she deliveres a remarkable
version of lakeside blues, focussed on organ. two epic
pieces, that fit well in their impressive discographies.
this record comes in a full colour sleeve, with download
code, and is limited to a one time pressing of 200 copies.
it can be yours for just 6 euro.
a long silence, we can welcome back
Bingo Trappers; the legendary lofi duo from Amsterdam.
With their unique psychedelic tinged garage-pop tunes,
and records on labels like shrimper and animal world they
gathered quite a cult following. Druggy pop songs, harmonies,
riffs, choruses and bridges, harmonicas and pedal steel,
with The Byrds, Dylan and Young as their gurusthe LP Sister
Planet is their first release on morc in ten years.
and it's a great one; This is a limited edition of only
150 LP's, beautifully screenprinted by Smeraldina-Rima,
and with liner notes by Simon Joyner. comes with a download
coupon, for a cheap price of 12 euro (+shipping)
Lichens lp "lítiõ
fólk' was sold out for a while. but we did
a small repress of another 150 copies. on this release,
Robert Lowe (of Om, 90 day men) focuses on his distinct
voice. For the most part of the album, youll hear
nothing but his wordless vocals some parts melodic,
some droning, some pulsating, but at all times enchanting.
impressive from the very first to the very last notes.
and we're running low on copies of all
these other titles we put out the past year. really:
we only have about 20-30 copies left of each:
eyes'(onesided lp - 10 euro)
Summer Eyes is a bit lighter than Felicias most
recent output. The first track starts out with a very
recognizable keyboard melody, but slowly turns into
a powerful yet friendly sounding drone, with all the
elements from the very start still recognizable in there.
The second song is an instrumental to her standards-
ep" (7" - 6 euro)
Annelies and Wim have been living together for about
10 years. From the moment they moved in together they
became a big indirect influence on
each others work. In Annelies case, this resulted
in the use of more effects and writing guitar-based
songs. Whereas Circle Bros drifted away from being a
guitar-oriented drone entity. Listeners who pay attention
will hear plenty of similarities .
Monseré : Nest(10"
- 10 euro)
on this ep, Annelies brings together her stark pianosound
and her loude, built up songs. this is perfectly illustrated
in her two versions of 'all things are quite silent'.
5 songs, over 23 minutes in total. to top it off: steve
marreyt of edgar wappenhalter sings along!
now we're at at it: there's not a single release of which
we have more than 50 copies left in stock. of these titles
we only have less than 10 copies left
- morc 28: fields
split ep (7")
- morc 58: urpf lanze/Edgar
superb mix of high quality adventurous pop, drones and
- morc 54: circle bros:
