Melinda & Maciek is a project started in February 2018 thanks to an

accidental Instagram connection between 2 musicians. Melinda Ligeti is

a composer/singer/multiinstrumentalist/arranger/producer from Serbia,

living in Italy, while Maciek Cieslak is a drummer from Poland, living

in France. It all started with Melinda's old wish to write music based

on a bare drum track. Maciek happened to have some ready, recorded

drumparts that he sent to her, and she used them to build music upon

it, using piano, synth and bass. It was an experimental approach to

composition Melinda always wanted to try, and it finally happened. The

result is 4 songs, mixing jazz, prog, fusion, chillout,

contemporary… imagined as a mini album, giving the taste of what

this project might become if developed further. 3 of them are

instrumental, and one is also involving Maciek's vocals that got

caught on microphones while recording the drumpart, a selfironic song

that makes fun of the hardship of singing and playing at the same

time, in his native Polish language. Jazz Frit is a symbolic title for

this album, for the fact that musicians involved are living in

(Fr)ance and (It)aly, but also, and so much more, for the meaning of

frit word, which by Oxford dictionary definition is the mixture of

silica and fluxes which is fused at high temperature to make glass,

plus – according to urban dictionary means intoxicating/exciting, as

well as ligthly fried.

Liquid Empires is a sonic
exploration of the centrality of water to life on Earth. As Mehr
explains, “We are water. Water is everything. It is life-giving and
deadly, it is progress and comfort, it is central to our economy,
energy, transport, food, warmth, cooling and manufacturing. At the
same time, water means purity, beauty and mysticism. We spend the
first nine months in it. We waste it and we contaminate
Over the course of more than two years, Mehr recorded the
sound of rivers, lakes and oceans, then set about transforming these
sonic source materials in the digital domain using spectral analysis
and time manipulation software. The result is some of Mehr’s most
mesmerising compositions to date, teasing out harmonic patterns and
microscopic textures that are beautiful as they are

Projekt Records announces "To Touch The
Milky Way;" The 12th full-length release from Black Tape For a Blue

Evocative, powerful and melancholic, BlackTape’s 12th
studio album expands upon their sweeping Art Rock aesthetic.
Songwriter and bandleader Sam Rosenthal’s electro-acoustic
atmospherics and foreboding, engaging lyricism focus the band as they
enter their 32nd year with an album encompassing powerful personal and
transpersonal themes.

Non-binary porn star Mercy West portrays
the androgynous alien traveler in Rosenthal’s photography; the
booklet contain 10 pages of striking photos the duo shot at locations
throughout Oregon. “The photos externalize the feelings of
isolation, alienation and longing within the lyrics,” Rosenthal
says. “Mercy’s character is a stark representation of our
struggles, lost within a larger self-defined world that work to limit
our true nature.”

"The seven tracks on To Touch the Milky Way
showcase the prominent darkwave act’s distinctively ethereal
textures and haunting melodic atmospheres, led by the alluring vocals
of Danielle Herrera and Michael Plaster. With chilling layers of
synths, distant drums, and acoustic and electric guitars that evoke
the swirling and introspective ambience audiences have come to love
from Black Tape for a Blue Girl."
– ReGen

“Reconnect with and reflect on the larger legacy of
Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s emotive whirlwind.”
– I Die:You
