It’s always a very special feeling when you sign a new deal with a band. It’s exciting: will you – dear listeners – like them as much as I do? Will you feel this tingle, will your heart beat a bit faster? Unpredictable, neverthless I feel this strong trust. In you. Because Rekk are amazing and they deserve your attention. Some of you might already know this german quintet – as they supported the ever-present Annenmaykantereit earlier this year.
I am very happy to announce that Rekk will release their debut album on Stargazer. „Sixtytwo“ is due on February 26th, 2016. Feel free to listen to their first EPs until we will feed you with new material. Soon.

Grant Creon & Golden Kanine. Friends and fans of both bands know, that the connection between these two is based on way more than just living in the same city called Malmö. Mattias Larsson acted as a producer for GK9’s album „Oh Woe!“ and Linus Lindvall contributed on several songs on Grant Creon’s debut album „Damn Those Things“. Besides that they are very close friends and speak the same musical language. Now they merged and founded Cub & Wolf.
Their debut album will be released on January 16th on vinyl only and it will sound like this:
What seems to be a whole orchestra is actually just a single man and his guitar. But Carl Mathson – the mastermind behind The Lancaster Orchestra doesn’t need more than that to create his melancholic but beautiful sound. Listening for the first time to a live version of “Heart Of Stone” left me starring at the computer screen and wondering how this man could make everything stop for a little while.
Let’s stop again for a second to say: Welcome Carl Mathson, Welcome The Lancaster Orchestra. It’s a pleasure.
