"Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us." [Oscar Wilde]

"Welcome To The Heartland" is a postpunk/psychedelic concept album by the anonymous one man band (((S))) (Ungoogable- S) from Denmark.
The eight regular dark sounding rock songs (with a spice of 60’s psychedelic garage) are intertwined with soundscapes introducing a retrospective narrative.
The speaking voice guides us through the fluctuations of life in the arcane Heartland; 43 years captured in a 43-minute long letter in sound like an audio outtake from your favorite dark novel!
"Welcome To The Heartland" is released on December 5th on PoiSonic and distributed by Altone Distribution (digitally only).

After "Riot", the latest official output from 2012, the GOLDEN APES will release "The Langsyne Litanies" on October the 31st at last, for clearing the way for things to come.
Inspired by their acoustic tour earlier that year the band chose 5 personal favourites from their canon to reinterpret them while looking back and rearrange them while taking a step forward, deliver them from the chronological dust and restructure their tonal nucleus. By using mainly acoustic instruments, like classic guitars, percussions, a cello, flutes and even a tuba the process bore a soundscape wherein familiar sounds reflected in a new way, sloughed aurally and detached from any tense.
Including 3 brand-new tracks "The Langsyne Litanies" became more than the planned EP, but an album that mirrors the band's versatility and their many facets in an unusual and impressing way. "The Langsyne Litanies" will be available as an limited edition (restricted to 333 copies) only.

After the rock oriented "Staying Alive in a Country Industrialized" in 2012 the musical journey of The Search entailed touring their native country Sweden, performing in Germany and recording their seventh long player "Our Need for Solace". The Swedes, alongside the heart and soul of the band Razmig Tekeyan, have created a passage to their earlier works through a fusion of past and present.
"Our Need for Solace" comprises Dream Pop in a way similar to 80s melodic Wave- and Rock-classics and proves once again Razmig Tekeyan’s ability to include plenty of life experience into the compositions and lyrics. The album is the band's best effort to date with songs like the jangly "You Deserve More" and the danceable "Wake Up From Your Electronic Hallucinations" as well as the melancholic somberness of "Some Pick On The Weakest After Sensing Their Fears."
"Our Need for Solace" is available in all major download stores from 27th of June onwards. Fans of Wave and Indie Pop/Rock should definitely have a listen!
