Hala Strana "s/t" album (dst-04)
RELEASE SEPTEMBER 19TH 2017 (20 €)
LP, 300 copies. Layout by Druidhigh Visuals
Hala Strana is a summation of Steven R. Smith's interest in the traditional folk musics of central and eastern Europe. By incorporating the melodies, scales, and instrumentation of the village music from Croatia, Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic or Poland, Steven has pushed his music into yet another new territory. Hala Strana consistently locates the source of their esoteric power, the part that suggests specific cultural heritages. The brilliance of the album lies in where those evocations lead, to what ends they are taken -- luxurious, complicated cities of the imagination, landscapes at once tangible and unknowable.

UP-TIGHT "s/t" album (dst-02)
Release June 30th 2016 (sold out)
LP, 300 copies black vinyl. Artwork by Standard In-Fi Visuals
UP-TIGHT are a noxious trio from Japan, ghost of Les Rallizes Denudes, who augment their sound with crushing, Sabbath-styled dynamics, earsplitting acid leads and beautiful Velvets-inspired ballads. Just when you thought you'd got to grips with Tokyo's paradigm destroying psych scene, this one hits like a sucker punch.
