|LeeDVD - lenajgiwittuju|
AudioTong is happy to introduce LeeDVD, Polish digital songwriter and singer - if only songwriting is a good description for the music on her debut EP presented here. Six surreal, obsessive and hypnotic songs. Quirky fables, gloomy and humorous, smashed and squeezed pop, onieric and psychedelic, future songwriting - experimental in the best meaning of the word. From noisy drones to abstract melodies, in a mood reminding somewhat of the surreal territories explored by Andrew Liles' in his solo wo...

|Radical Poland - V.A.|
Hard to believe, but some of you are expecting the worst from today. The signifiant date of June 6th, 2006 (6.6.06 for those who haven't noticed yet) brings apocalyptic and purely infernal visions to some people's minds. Well, we don't really trust the numerology and we don't expect the end of the world today... But, with whole respect, we have prepared something special for those who will feel a bit disappointed at the end of the day...

AZA is a sound artist from Athens, Greece. Born in 1979, he's creating music for almost ten years now. My projects relate to all those things I can't describe with words. Just feelings - he writes on his website. The music on cosmo.sys is full of glitches, noises, manipulated synths but also spacious guitar and other weird and unexpected blurry sounds. Nice music which requires concentration and focussed listen...

Remember LeeDVD and her debut album "Lenajgiwittuju" released on AudioTong few years back? She's not disappeared, in fact she was pretty active throughout all that time and now she's back with her new project, Fuka Lata duo. Five long psychodelic tracks filled with overdriven guitars, ghostly yet melodic vocals and other effects which won't let you stay unaffected even after the album's finished. And if you prefer physical copy of the album, be prepared for an amazing packaging with smashing art...

The idea of travelling in sound was always close to our general idea of being interested in music - music understood not only as a purely artistic form of expression but also as something intangible yet bearing lots of sociological, philosophical and even political meanings. Not to mention that unexpected sounds are the only ones worth listening to. Probably. This compilation here is another step into rather unknown territories of sound art - unknown for the westernized ear, for those who have g...
