New Release! ZEA- Moarn Gean Ik Dea - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge New full album (10 songs) from ZEA alias Arnold De Boer, who's also singer/guitarist for THE EX. Between singer/songwriter, alternative Folk and Punk, with a reduced equipment (guitar and electronics) in a minimalistic sound, lyrics sung in Frisian (with English translations provided on the enclosed lyric-sheet). Intimate, atmospheric, deeply emotional, diversified, at times even hymnic. Overall an exciting and beautiful album! Can't come up with any more original comparison, but it's meant honestly: "Like a Frisian Elliott Smith". http://www.zea.dds.nl/

ZEA- Split with OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND - 7" - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge Limited split-single featuring a joyfully swinging and bouncing ditty called "Exploding Head Syndrome" from ZEA. A catchy pop-tune with guitar, electronis, and vocals, and it's almost a Dancefloor smasher! On the B-side "Electric Clavichord" is an experminental noise-track recorded by Oscar Jan Hoogland with (as the title suggests) an electric clavichord. http://zeamusic.bandcamp.com/album/zea-oscar-jan-hoogland-split-7

Minimalistic and experimental, interesting and entertaining, vivid and fresh! Sounds like a "No Wave Electronica Jazz-Pop offspring" of THE EX. Really cool!
