BoogiePost Recordings proudly presents a new release from Nuaia: Belong to the moon. According to Hrayr Attarian (review in All About Jazz 23/4 2015), it’s artistic without being highbrow, poppish while avoiding banality and adventurous without even a touch of abstruseness. It is an exquisite mélange of lyrical modernity and intellectually provocative poetry that is simultaneously substantial and stylish.
The word is out: Samuel Hällkvist is about to return with a new album! On June 4th 2013, the whole thing will be available for purchase and download at the usual places, but already today you can have a sneak preview here at BoogiePost Recordings.

And what about the music? We’ll give you a hint, in Samuel’s own words: “When I composed the music for the album, the guiding words for me were ‘asymmetrical dance music’. I wanted to lose control and trust what the other musicians could bring to the table. The result was something I didn’t expect.”
A new upcoming release, Samuel Hällkvist’s Variety of Loud is to be released on the 4th of June: An all-star album featuring Pat Mastelotto, Pete Drungle, Mai Ueda and Stefan Pasborg. In Sid Smith‘s words:
There’s a wealth of intricate detail within the album; icy twang-bar reveries; dextrous country-style plucking; trance-like beats that percolate through the entire body of the album; joyous, blissed-out swirls of kaleidoscopic keyboards; wordless vocals drifting between undulating ripples of guitar, fizzing electronica and dreamy chords; intense metallic-edged riffs and explosive salvos of chaotic percussion.
Already today, you can watch the video for Urban Champion on the BoogieTube. Enjoy!
