Avgvst (TSM 0004)


Avgvst (TSM 0004)

Avgvst is an independent postwave project.Obsessed by whirlwinds of reverb and chorus, Avgvst has spent the past 12 years navigating from instrumental ambient-rock to the borders of synth-pop and shoegaze. Their last releases, “Onlooker” and “Heat of the Moment EP”, mix distorted guitars, ghostly voices, industrial waves, dancey beats, sex, cancer and socialism.

Promise (TSM 0004)


Promise - Adoration

Female singer Alice, much used to folk and psyched singing, and fashion journalist in Paris, became the puppet of the project by obeying to the composer’s directives. Foundator of Cranes Records in 2012, composer Denis is maturing this project since 2003, and finally found a revelation in his singer. Somewhere between Madonna and gothic music of Christian Death, they realized a glam shoegaze of love and sacred music. Composing by distance (they are geographically seperated), so as their collaboration became distant, cold. Taking their time to release a record, they are managing to perform shows in france by the begining of summer.

Their first track, “Les Champs Magnétiques” (Magnetic Fields), encourages reverie and draws you towards a cold and determined epic through an industrial, but dreamlike world.

Local Distorsion (TSM 0004)

Local Distorsion is a illusory collective concept created in 2012 and based in France. It uses different group names and tones to express itself more freely and create different atmospheres from cold/minimal wave, synth pop to electronic experimentation. Behind this “hocus pocus”, there is a French duo, inspired by the surrealism, metaphysics and nihilism literature, fan of the 80’s DIY scene, the psych, punk, kraut rock, avant-garde electronic, mutant and odd sounds, Cyril (vocal, electronics) and Caroline (vocal).

Video Look is a Stockholm based syntwave duo formed in 2012. Though they both have been producing under different projects for the past 20 years. A Video Look song contains naive swedish lyrics over a classic synthesizer sound and super fast drum machines. The name Video Look is taken from a now defunct strip club in Gothenburg, Sweden from where the both members origin. For 2013 they have a bunch of releases in the pipe-line for various labels so keep an eye out for this new project.
