We congratulate Soft Plastic and Bikini Beach Challenge (2/3 of Karlsson) for being part of the honorable mentions “Best Indie Acts” and “Best Electropop” on RecordingFestival.com. Amazing talents to be found there, incredible! We also congratulate and give props to the winning acts, who can live a musician’s dream and record at Grouse Loudge studios in Ireland!
Here we go: our first full-length release on CD…at last…it was about time! Much work and love has been put into this piece, we are happy and we are looking forward to this being just the beginning of many more records to come! Limited edition of 100 digipack copies.
You can purchase it at the record store Rex Rotari (Saarbrücken, Nauwieser Viertel), on Bandcamp (with personal greets from Maddes), on live shows and on CDBaby for all followers on the other side of the big pond (ships worldwide).
Thanks again to all, who have believed in Maddes’ music and for your ongoing support!
The project Austrozone was developed by Eberhard Forcher and focuses on Austrian music: besides established artists (Klangkarussell, Falco, …) it features also many newcomer artists like Soft Plastic.
We think it’s a great concept and we hope many people will get a good impression of the variety of Austrian music.
Please spread the word and grab a copy. It is already available digitally and in stores (Austria). We hope the German and Swiss stores may offer it within the next weeks.
your happy Aerostat Records team =)
It’s release time again! We are proud to announce the release of the full-length debut album of Maddes (songwriter Matthias Roos from Saarbrücken) called “Fielded”. The record contains 11 tracks and is now available on most digital download stores (iTunes, Amazon, … see full list of stores at the end of this letter). You can also stream the album on many platforms like Spotify.
“Idaho” single video is on YouTube. It was directed by two amazing video artists from Stuttgart/Ravensburg (Jan Wittekindt and Ruben Kempter), who did a fantastic job. You should definitely check that out.
“…light and breezy indie that uses pastel shades and a laid-back vibe to seduce your brain, coupling this with chimes of electric guitar and more of a complexity of sound that it seems to let on at first. There is a mellow twang of Elliott Smith about this track and also hints of dreampop drifting by, all filtered through mid-period Teenage Fanclub…” (Kevin Wright – SoundsXP)
Here is the full list of download stores where you can grab a copy of Fielded:
- Apple iTunes
- Amazon MP3
