IMP 046 | TESA “IV” [LP]

We’re very happy to announce that the new record from TESA is now available! You can listen to the opening track on our freshly launched bandcamp page, where you can also order and listen to some lovely tunes from the last Impure Muzik releases.

Soberly entitled IV, the third full-lentgh album of our favorite Latvian band is composed of 3 long tracks, a magnificent blend of sludge and post-rock played with a singular sound that has made TESA a unique proposition for years. The music of the three-piece band from Riga drenches the listeners into multiples feelings, intertwining beautiful, melancholic and heavy atmospheres with a very subtle hardcore undercurrent. IV is the long-anticipated follow-up to heartbeatfromthesky released in 2008.

12″ clear vinyl with black splatter coming in a gatefold sleeve, co-released with OSK records (RU).

IMP 044 | SHOOT THE SINGERS « A Good Singer is a dead Singer » [LP]

sts-front

2 dirty guitars, 1 heavy drum and 1 cheap harsh voice… SHOOT THE SINGERS is a 3-piece band from Besançon (FR) even though their sound and tunes are reminiscent of a certain 90’s US alternative rock scene. The group’s debut-album explores and combines different music styles, marrying subtly noise, post-rock and psyche-rock.
