RememberMe, a tribute to South African jazz saxophonist Zim Ngqawana, is out now. It was recorded by Saadet Türköz and Ngqawana in Johannesburg and mixes jazz with South African music. A very unique recording for those who dare to try out something new. Next up, and completing our June releases, will be GN, the debut album by French avantgarde group Geins't Nait. Summer is coming closer and the Klanggalerie office will be closed for a week from June 12 to June 20. Please expect delays in replying and delayed shipping. All items ordered during our absence will be posted immediately after out return. A low stock warning: Strange Culture/Hades by The Residents is very close to being sold out as is Long Time Coming by Renaldo & The Loaf. Poppycock by Blurt is deleted, and as of today, only one copy remains of Bullets For You. Enjoy the summer and remember you can listen to many of our releases also on Bandcamp.
We are delighted to announce two new releases: first, the third installment in the C Cat Trance reissue series. Zouave comes with bonus tracks off two 12" singles and was remastered by Martin Bowes. The second new release is a collaboration between Kazakh/Swiss vocalist extraordinaire Saadet Türköz with South African jazz legend Zim Ngqawana, plus several friends from Johannesburg. A stunning and very unique album mixing free jazz with South African traditional music. More details of both in the shop. Stock on Daydream B-Liver and Strange Culture by the Residents is getting rather low. They won't last much longer, so if you haven't grabbed a copy yet, but would like to do so, act soon to avoid missing them. The positive development of the corona pandemic in Austria allows us to organize concerts again, the first ones will be Massimo Toniutti in July and yea in August, followed by Charles Hayward and Joke Lanz/Ute Wassermann in September. Stay safe.
We are happy to announce that number 4 of our Bourbonese Qualk re-issue campaign is in stock: The Spike was originally released on German Dossier label and is available on CD for the first time. More info in the catalogue section. The latest releases are all doing very well, the two Residents titles are selling fast and stock won't last forever. By today we can also announce that we are bringing The Residents to Vienna, on January 25th 2022, as part of their Dog Stab tour. The Renaldo & The Loaf remix album is selling fast, too, and the new Sorry for Laughing release is getting a lot of attention and is doing well. Check out this new supergroup of Gordon Whitlow (Biota), Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots) and Martyn Bates (Eyeless in Gaza). What an amazing album. June will see a lot of exciting music coming out on Klanggalerie, starting with the 3rd part of the C Cat Trance re-issue series, Zouave. Here's to a better summer with live music!
