22:15 | In 2016 Bed Rugs took a break from performing to work on new material. These were mostly bedroom recordings, fine-tuned on a couple of head trips to a secluded cabin in the Ardennes. The next year they hit Pixel Studio in Athens, GA with kindred spirit and Elephant 6 hero Derek Almstead. His signature sound was elementary at this stage.
A lot of the demo material was polished, sweetened and completed with a wide range of textures. Meanwhile Athens, which is all about music, got under their skin. Feeling really productive, Bed Rugs finished a double album
of 26 songs with lots of surprise guest appearances.
00:00 | Kraków Loves Adana are a Hamburg based indie band started by Deniz Cicek and Robert Heitmann after meeting in a music club. The duo creates music that is dreamy and intimate with a delicate and reduced instrumentation. The pair soon started working on their debut album Beauty which was released in 2010 followed by their second LP Interview (2012).
After touring together and accumulating a fan audience Kraków Loves Adana started self-releasing a series of singles including their self-produced EP Contrast (2015) and the yearningly, yet mystically piano piece Omg I Missed You early in 2016. Followed by the delightful, melodic guitar driven Once In July, that was released in autumn of the same year.
In advance of their third studio album Call Yourself New (2017) Kraków Loves Adana released four singles, including False Alarm and Never Quite Right over a span of almost four months. With Call Yourself New the duo once again opens the doors to their cinematic world. A place that is intense, brooding and melancholic, but also beautiful, exhilarating and spectacular.
The lineup will be completed by Edsun.
