Kanipchen-Fit (NL / USA)

KANIPCHEN-FIT uses two voices, electric guitar, tambourine, maracas and minimal beats for optimum effect. The music is unsentimental, the lyrics try to stay ironic, taking on subjects as rain, late night braggadocio, love-starved strangers, heroic alcoholics and prison entertainment.

Ooh la la! Here’s our second label sampler filled to the brim with delicious sound waves to spoil your delicate ears with. We’ll name it:

Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck
presents

Behold My Puny Bears, Vol. II

This turned out to be a pretty damn special package for a number of reasons. Let us break it down for you.

1. We go: “It’s completely free!” Then you go: “Yeah, what else is new? All your tunes are up as free downloads.” “No son, we’re talking the actual CD here. When you order something in our shop for 10 euro’s or more, we’ll include this label compilation for zero euro’s.” Then you say: “O No, you didn’t!!”. “Well we did. And if you’re broke, or just really cheap, but still want to own pure coolness, you can order the cd separate for 3 euro’s.

2. Every cover is completely unique. The front and back of the package are actual photographs (containing tasteful male nudity). We made tons of pictures and handmade sets for each album. We could say ‘collect them all’ but that would cost you 500 × 3 euro’s. Ah, what the hell: ‘Collect Them All!!

3. The music on this lil’ silver shiny disc turned out to be not too crappy at all! It’s a nice way to get to know our artists (and then some more). Loyal listeners will recognize most of the songs, but there’s some brand new stuff on there too. Check out the playlist:

National pride! Het Gloren – Glorie 123

So here’s a little piece of education for all you non Dutchies.

On April 12, we will present our first all Dutch release. Which means that the lyrics are packed with funny sounding words and ambiguous expressions that make us smile while you don’t get it.

flap

‘Glorie 123′ by Het Gloren is the musical debut of Floris Schrama. Schrama grew up in Schipluiden which is located in the typically Dutch polder. Polder? Yes, polder! This explicit environment formed the foundation for Schama’s reflection en consciousness that you will find in his lyrics and music.

Where Floris is known for playing solo the album was recorded in company of Wouter Kors and Gerben Houwer both known for their role in We vs. death.

Since translating the lyrics of Het Gloren would ruin the whole experience
we suggest you’ll start practicing Dutch…Go on! You won’t regret it.

Press play for your first lesson!

With the release comes an album presentation in style. So if you happen to be nearby (or drown in money). Make sure to stop by at wood sawing company ‘the Stern’, based in an original Mill in the city center of Utrecht. Ain’t that fresh!
