Side A: Goodnight, Thank You
Side B: Johnny and Mary
'Goodnight, Thank You' is the debut 45 from Schneider TM and Barbara Morgenstern collaborator Mek Obaam. Mek's style is reminiscent of early releases on Scotland's Postcard Records by artists like Orange Juice and Josef K, had those acts been influenced by Psycho Candy era Jesus and Mary Chain.
Hi Lonesome Electric
Side A: Pierre and John Henry
Side B: Hoola
'Pierre and John Henry' takes an American folk tale, touched upon over the years by everyone from Johnny Cash to New York noise-nik Ellen Fullman, and sets a new story against deep listening electronics, John Fahey style guitar loops, dub effects and crackles. B-side instrumental track 'Hoola' pays tribute to Hawaiian slide guitar in a 'Basic Channel goes to Waikiki Beach' fashion and versions the A-side in melodic guitar loops, electrical rhythms and dub.
Side A: Jack Potatoe
Side B: Hey Mr. Rambler

Julia Hummer is a known actress in her native country of Germany...and in a unique Berlin meets Hollywood fusion...her music echoes the 1980's Los Angeles indie scene, with nuances of bands like Rain Parade, Dream Syndicate, Opal and Mazzy Star.Julia, together with her musical accomplice and producer Christopher Uhe, has brought a modern European response to this classic American sound...like Velvet Underground coming to terms with Bob Dylan but with Nico at the helm.
