JS Donny - BnN

As dawn breaks, amidst the lingering echoes of dreams and nightmares, which one remains etched in the depths of your mind? Caught in-between, Marseille-based project JS Donny delves into this hazy realm of recollection through their upcoming 10” vinyl single, ‘BnN’, set for release early 2024 via Bamboo Shows and Chrüsimüsi Records.
From the two-tracker exudes a fragile yet tense atmosphere, courtesy of JS Donny‘s unique presence, haunting vocals – soaring from restorative whispers to anguished screams – and raw energy electric guitar riffs. Further enhanced by the talents of Sarah-Louise Barbett (Drums), Jano aka Janomax (samples, keyboards) and Nadja Meier (bass), the recording seamlessly interweaves elements of slow-rock, shoegaze-folk, and soft-metal, all infused with progressive influences. A masterfully-performed balancing act between the ‘Busin***’ bittersweet ballad, and the ‘Never Forget U’ insurrectional outlet.

Forget and dream with the fluttering of the butterfly, available on digital platforms starting Dec. 11 and on a 10” clear-vinyl late February 2024!

Jonquera - La Croix des Cros

Through his second LP on the label, Jonquera delivers a loner-folk eclogue about the fantasized inner demons of a country dweller. Just like clay, audio recordings here are a malleable substance, slowly reworked over a year, following a sinuous production process where all mishaps are welcomed as breaches to step into.
Far from the spaghetti western myth of the reckless bounty hunter, riding his faithful horse in the great outdoors to spill blood; this 14-track album is the grieving lament of a wistful cowboy, longing for a simple patch of peace where one’s free to cultivate the earth and noodle on the guitar.

Heldon’s cosmic space-rock, Badalamenti’s Twin-Peaksesque foggy jazz or Morricone’s glorious soundtracks, so many references to portray another awesome imprint.

Metra.Vestlud - Coalyqsta

Have you ever wondered about liquid crystals’ consciousness? We bet you haven’t. Then, are you familiar with the concept of panpsychism, the view that all things have a mind or a mind-like quality? Well, you should be pretty curious about it now, and Bamboo Shows may have some of the answers!

Introducing Metra.Vestlud on the label via his ‘Coalyqsta’ LP to pursue the intriguing aesthetic brought to light through the Vapordub compilation earlier this year, the French imprint is now exploring deeper under the iceberg of contemporary psychedelic music. A ten-track generous blend of 80s-90s mellow new age and crystalline HD sound-design, in the true spirit of the eco-futurism vibe.

Naomie Klaus - A Story of a Global Disease

Hey! How was your summer? Did you manage to pass through the tracks of travel restrictions before another gloomy fall? No? Then wipe away your tears and board along with Brussels-based Naomie Klaus.

Through her ‘A Story of a Global Disease’ debut-EP, the French Producer offers a tale about the artificial paradises of globalization, a melancholic stroll through the exotic relics of free trade, where appearances matter more than knowledge. Here, geishas eat fries, Europeans confuse Tokyo with Beijing, tribal ceremonies start with drum rolls and exotic travelling dreams are fulfilled on ephemeral food courts.

Perse - Exile in H

We are happy to start 2021 with the 6-track Debut-EP from Italian duo Perse, formed by Marco Milanesio (DsorDNE9cento9) & Emiliana Voltarel (Braconidae).

‘Exile in H’ is a great gathering of spoken poetry, illbient, electronic experimentations and field recordings. Its dark, heavy industrial / noise atmospheres occasionally reach liberating climax, moving the listener away from the initially induced torpor through explosive drumlines.
