Tbilissi recommends Part 2

Second in our series of sporadic signposts towards music that we like is this tune from a compilation released to raise funds for a “monthly sonic exploration event” in deepest darkest Worcestershire.  We haven’t been, so don’t know if it’s any good, but this track is fantastic and makes us want to turn the hi-fi up until the deaf bloke next door starts banging on the wall.

The compilation is available for whatever you can pay here, and the track in question “Wiederholen Gruppe 99” by the ever-excellent Soundhog can be watched simultaneously with an old skiing film below.

Vermont’s “The Kinetic” – out now!

Now available on Bandcamp for your listening (and purchasing) pleasure; Vermont’s “The Kinetic” single.  You can buy it here as both a digital download or 7″ single (with included download).  And you can have a listen to all the tracks beforehand too.

You can also listen to the single on Soundcloud if you prefer:

Vermont “The Kinetic”

We can announce that the next release from Tbilissi Recordings will be the third Vermont single “The Kinetic’, which we are hoping to make available to you all on Friday 17th January.  To whet your appetite here’s the last track from the single – “Starting Again”.

Tbilissi recommends Part 1

We’re busy here working on various new releases and reissues here at Tbilissi towers at the moment, but we thought it might be good to share some of the things we have been listening too as we wade through websites and muck about with Photoshop.

A new single that we’ve been listening to loads is one of the singles in the Odd Box Records 100 Club Series of 7″s – “Flux/Teeth” by the excellently fuzzy Fever Dream.   Here are the tracks for you listen to; you can buy directly from the Odd Box site, but hurry as there’s only 100 copies available.

Now available on yet another sound-based broadcasting site

In order to make listening to our fine recordings that little bit easier we have just opened an account on Soundcloud and started posting tracks to it.  Eventually everything will be up there but please be patient – we’re not the fastest in the world at this computer malarkey y’know.  Here’s the final track on Vermont’s “The Euphony” to prove it.

In other news we are gearing up for the next re-release in the series – Vermont’s third single “The Kinetic”.  More details on that to come.  Be seeing you.

“Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice” is now available

Just a quick notice that the wonderful Wintergreen’s single “Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice” is now available to buy direct from here as both a 7″ record and a digital download in the format of your choice.  If you’ve not heard the tracks you can always go to the bandcamp site and take a listen, or you could head over to YouTube to acquaint yourself further with their seductive noises.  Here’s the other track from the single (we posted the other on Monday), Clockwork Mice:

Wintergreen – “Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice”

After spending a significant wedge of time dotting the ‘t’s and crossing the ‘i’s (well at least as long as it took to realise we should be doing it the other way around) we have set everything in place to (re)release Wintergreen’s “Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice”. Their second single (and first on Tbilissi), it was initially released in August 2005, but it never received the publicity it merited.

Nowadays with the improved ability of virtual outlets to allow music to be released flexibly and without prohibitive overheads (yawn, boring!) we can allow it to be heard again. So we can announce that it will be available to buy on digital download (in a smörgåsbord of formats) or as a wonderful slab of 7″ vinyl ready to spin around on your turntable (but also with a free download for your portable player of choice) from Friday 20th September.

Yes, we know that’s this Friday. Once we managed to get everything ready we just couldn’t wait any longer. That’s how things work in the digital age y’know. Or something.

Tell you what – here’s the AL-side of the single “Autumn Leaves”.

Our next release

Yes, we’ve been a little quiet for a few months or so (due to a release from Simon from Vermont’s new band Cosines), but we’re gearing up for yet another reissue of previous Tbilissi magic. We are jumping ahead of ourselves a little chronologically, but the reason for that will become clear soon enough.

The next reissue will be the single Autumn Leaves/Clockwork Mice by Wintergreen. Originally released in the summer of 2005 this single was lovingly created by the band and delicately licenced to Tbilissi to release. Keep your eyes peeled for the next update.

In the meantime you can visit the newly-minted Tbilissi Bandcamp page to see the (albeit limited) releases available virtually so far. There will be more. Just you wait…

More YouTubery

To catch up with where we are with our reissues, here are the other tracks from Vermont’s first two singles “The Funicular” and “The Euphony” on YouTube.

We’ve also made some playlists so you can listen to the tracks in order as they are on the single.  Here they are:

KURA001 – Vermont “The Funicular”

KURA003 – Vermont “The Euphony”

Hope you like them, and it makes playing the songs a little easier.
