- Moonlee Trade Center is online! (moonleerecords.com)
Hello! It's Summer, and Summer usually means fests! As you may have guessed, some Moonlee bands will play some Summer fests, so here's how it goes... Nikki Louder, the Slovene noise rock champs, will play the awesome Fluff Fest in Rokycany (CZ) and Trnfest in Ljubljana (SI). Then we've got Repetitor, Moonlee's newest acquisition straight outta Belgrade. These post punx are scheduled to play at the Terraneo festival in Šibenik, Croatia. This is the first and hopefully not the last edition of Terraneo, as it's a great and really promising festival. Bernays Propaganda and XAXAXA will also be playing Terraneo, as well as the Arm Your Desires fest in Greece. Melodic punk rock greats known as In-Sane will play the Monte Paradiso fest in Pula, Croatia and Punk Rock Holiday in Tolmin, Slovenia. Just look at the lineup! Believe it or not, the Moonlee distro crew will be present at most of these festivals, so drop by, buy us beer and buy some distro stuff from us. See you!
XAXAXA's huge European tour is finally coming to a close - they've been on the road for almost two months and in a few days they'll play their final shows in Zagreb and Ljubljana. To be more precise, the Zagreb show will take place at AKC Attack on 26th June, and the Ljubljana show will occur on 27th June at Letni Vrt Gala Hale. This tour was set up in support of XAXAXA's debut LP, "Tango Revolucioner", which was recently released by a couple of different labels, Moonlee included. Actually, Bernays Propaganda are also on this tour, but that's natural as the band's made up of 3/4 members of XAXAXA. If you still haven't heard the album, head over to Bandcamp and take a listen! By the way, these two shows will also feature The Estranged, an amazing band from Portland, USA. If you like the Wipers, Joy Division and The Cure, chances are that The Estranged might become your new favorite band. See you there!
Ah, new month - new Moonlee contest.This month's question is as follows: Which Moonlee band has the most fans on Facebook? It's easy, you'll just have to make a bit of research. Start here, and while you're at it, don't forget to 'like' a few Facebook pages, if you catch my drift. Send your answers (and your name) to: firstname.lastname@example.org by noon, 17th May. The lucky winner gets Analena's latest album, "Inconstantinopolis", on CD. We'll send it by mail, cool? There, start shooting... those answers at us. By the way, participation in the contest will get you added to the Moonlee Records mailing list, but you can unsubscribe at any time. Hope you don't mind.
That's right - Bernays Propaganda and XAXAXA are going on tour! As you may know, XAXAXA are actually three members of Bernays Propaganda, so it's the same people in two bands. Practical indeed, at least for touring. The tour will take them everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE. Seriously, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia and everything in between. Also, XAXAXA will be promoting their first album, "Tango Revolucioner", which was recently released by a couple of labels, Moonlee included. Here, listen to it on Bandcamp. Normally, we'd say that you should check them out if you get a chance, but this time, you'll get a chance almost certainly. So yeah, go check them out.
