Chansons Invisibles

22 Apr

“Chansons Invisibles” is the 20th release for KinGem Records. And so far more! The album is also the sophomore of Zondini, the Italian indiepop project of Mark Zonda. This time it’s no bedroom rock anymore, since the album was recorded in a real studio (PH Studio, in Forlì) with a real band, called Les Monochrome. The band is formed by Gennaro Spaccamonti on guitar, Andrea Russi on bass guitar and Nico Zanetti on drums. You can listen and buy the album here, or write us for the hard copy on CD. Buon ascolto!

Moroder

Moroder

Just like “Plato’s Summer Stars” new Italian indie-pop band “Meat Is Moroder” holds the memories and sounds of Mark Zonda’ summer days.

Everything was recorded in a little room by just an old boy facing his dreams, hopes and fantasies.

Most of the tracks where infulenced by Giorgio Moroder, mainly thanks Daft Punk‘s revival with the smashing summer hit “Get Lucky”.

The cover of the album is designed by UK based Claire Goldthorp Illustrations (www.clairegoldthorp.com).

Valeria Caponnetto Delleani and Elena Sestelo from the Spanish pop band “When Nalda Became Punk” features the tracks “I’m In Love With Kurt (But I Really Like Giorgio Moroder)” and “Newsroom Little Pill”, inspired by the American tv serie The Newsroom. You can buy the album from Amazon, Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp. Enjoy.

White Monsters

White Monsters

New Tiny Tide full album was recorded in two weeks, right in between 2012 and 2013 on wintertime. What a better momento to record a “White Mosnter” album?

 ”White Monster” starts from the ambition of Mark Zonda (who sang and played all the parts in the record) to pay tribute to two of the most wired album that inspired him during his youth: “Scary Monsters” and Kate Bush “The Dreaming”. Cover art is by the Italian artist Elisa Bay. Find all about it here!

… Around The World Around The World…

… Around The World Around The World…

Someone made me notice that it has been exactly one year since Tiny Tide released their last work (a Christmas EP called “A Christmas With Carol”).

Now they are back with a new full length album called “Around The World In 80 Dates”, possibly their tweest album ever featuring the song “Recording Sarah”, a real tribute to Sarah Records featuring Maddalena Zavatta. It took almost two years to collect the tunes of this records, featuring many interesting duets with Sarah Paster, Valeria Caponnetto Delleani and Anthony Rochester.
