LIGHTUNE.G

zagreb based duo LIGHTUNE.G (bojan gagic and miodrag gladović) are working hard for an album on interstellar records. these days this amazing project (feat. the guitar player of analena and lunar) are part of the exhibition at the contemporary art museum in zagreb (till end of arpil). lightune.g is something very special! performance technique based on the conversion of light into sound through the photovoltaic effect of solar panel. silicon cells of the solar panels transform the frequencies of light objects into sound images, which can then be modulated by the classic analog effects or processed within different computer audio platforms. .

our long time friends, graz based HELLA COMET, just released “ttmmm” on our label (INT035). after being invited to Lou Reed" night in graz / austria they have put a spin to their existing sound playing a set of blistering guitar feedback based on Lou Reeds' Metal Machine Music. no drums, just a intense wall of wonderful feedback and guitar modulations.
some days later, after listening to the recording along with hella comet, we came up with the perfect plan to release the recording as fast as possible on an analog medium.
two months after that we are happy to announce this release.
28 minutes of tape - the perfect format for this wall of sound.

be prepared for 2 more releases in the upcoming 2 months, as there will be METALYCÈE "expat blues” (end of april) and TUMIDO "nomads" (may 2014).
tespressings have already arrived and run on maximum spin on our turntables.
ANGELICA CASTELLO is working on their new album for Interstellar Records. release date: before summer (2014)

we are happy to announce that IN-KATA (ex-QUETZAL) are now officially part of the interstellar family! well. again. or rather... they always were, since back in the QUETZAL days, but still, not exactly the same band, even though IN-KATA consistently continued were QUETZAL left off. in any case, last year IN-KATA released their new album "thanatopraxis" on CD - some of you might remember their awesome show at the interstellar label night at kapu in linz in spring this year. well. that was actually the exact same night we decided to do a vinyl version of "thanatopraxis" and we finally proudly present one hell of a piece of eye and ear candy: INT033. be prepared! for all of you who didn't get a copy at one of the release shows at ann and pat (linz) resp. rhiz (vienna) two weeks ago, it comes on translucent red vinyl with a handmade screen printed gatefold cover. awesome? very much so!!

good news.... again! we've two more new releases out this month:

INT030 PEACH PIT "music for three films" MC
is a cooperation with Guranje S Litice - 50 minutes of music of three soundtracks by our beloved PEACH PIT from zagreb. recorded in the years 2000, 2001 (plus second guitar) and 2012. a beauty! and - sorry for that, but it's, like, super limited: 70 copies total.

INT031 TUMIDO "vakuum" LP
TUMIDO grew (up?) and now come as a three piece, with 2013 being busy for both us and them: first, and now, comes "vakuum", a trumpet-only masterpiece. hard to describe, so go listen at http://www.interstellarrecords.at. "vakuum" will be out on may 24th, release show is at stadtwerkstatt (linz) on the same day, see you there! in the next couple of weeks, TUMIDO will further prepare for a new album in regular - but threesome - lineup, to be released at the end of the year!

and, as a reminder: still fresh:

INT032 V/A "innere blutungen - soundtrack" LP / CD
is a documentary by Anatol Bogendorfer (Valina) and Florian Sedmak (Kurort), which premiered at this year's Crossing Europe Film Festival in Linz. "Innere Blutungen" is a well-balanced musical trip from the origins (as interpreted outside of any cliche by Martin Neureiter, Gosinger Geignmusi and Ischler Seitlpfeifer) to the abstract and delicate electronic soundscapes by Andreas Kurz - with a short stop at the middle grounds: a polyphonic "Jodler" for guitar by Florian Sedmak.

on some other note, we've a couple of great new mailorder stuff been coming in: THE EX & BRASS UNBOUND LP, and a couple of new releases from UNRECORDS and GOD RECORDS. aaand. we have some copies of the 50th

release of the label ROCK IS HELL, fittingly named "it can't get worse than this"
50 songs, crazy pressing (each track ends in a lock groove and a couple of other extra special curiosities) and includes a lot of interstellar family members and friends: TUMIDO, THE STRIGGLES, REGOLITH, REFLECTOR, NI, MAJA OSOJNIK, BULBUL, BUG, HELLA COMET, POOKA BOYS, ROAD TO WINEVILLE, RIVERWITCH, .

yes, we are a lazy bunch when it comes to writing news.
but we are not lazy when it comes to tell you about our new release.

last week, on april 23rd 2013, the documentary film INNERE BLUTUNGEN by Anatol Bogendorfer (Valina) and Florian Sedmak (Kurort) premiered at the Crossing Europe Film Festival. just a few hours before the premiere the records arrived ( flight13-duplicaton you rule!).

INT032 innere blutungen (soundtrack) is a well-balanced musical trip from the origins (as interpreted outside of any cliche by Martin Neureiter, Gosinger Geignmusi and Ischler Seitlpfeifer) to the abstract and delicate electronic soundscapes by Andreas Kurz - with a short stop at the middle grounds: a polyphonic "Jodler" for guitar by Florian Sedmak.

hey all, we're a lazy bunch when it comes to the news section of our website, hence this is so rarely updated even though we have a bunch of good news for you... shame on us!

in the next couple of weeks, we'll have a bunch of records in the INTERSTELLAR records bag:
→ INT030 PEACH PIT "music for three films"
→ INT031 TUMIDO "vakuum"
→ INT032 V/A "innere blutungen - soundtrack"

aaaand.... we're working hard on upcoming releases by LIGHTUNE.G, METALYCEE, NI and IN-KATA!

further, INTERSTELLAR records will be part of "Maja's Musik Markt" at Brut in Vienna on the weekend of April 26th to 28th, 2013. "Maja's Musik Markt" is a market (or should we call it "DIY fair"?) with almost all independent labels from Austria (at least it looks like it) and each label will have its own table (or "standl" as we call it in austria) and we will share ours with our friends of ROCK IS HELL and NOISE APPEAL Records. same time, same place, and actually a kind of fusion with the market is the "Viennese Soulfood Festival", with lots of bands from the INTERSTELLAR universe and beyond: REGOLITH, MATIJA SCHELLANDER (of METALYCEE), FIRST FATAL KISS, BULBUL, ..... see you there!

unfortunately, this time we don't only have good news for you but also kinda bad ones.... our sublabel DILEMMA records will be on indefinite hiatus for personal reasons (let's hope it's a "break" rather then the end of it). it's back catalog is still available, exclusively via the INTERSTELLAR mailorder. no idea if DILEMMA will get going again some time soon, but we'll keep you updated!

more details on our upcoming releases.... soon!

news - 07/11/2012

november is almost the end of the year - that is, high time for the following two releases to be out as of (almost) now (see release dates below):

november 9th: int029 PEACH PIT "suspicious cargo", a first-time-on-vinyl and vinyl-only rerelease, originally released on Earwing Records in 1999. "suspicious cargo" is hardly known outside of croatia, hence we thought you guys miss out on that one as it was quite a big influence on the interstellar crew back then. limited to exactly 103 copies, some come colored, others not. get them exclusively from us (mailorder) or from Dux Records Store (Graz), Moonlee Records (Slovenia), Guranje S Litice (Croatia), Friend of Mine Records (Japan) or directly from PEACH PIT themselves.

november 24th: int028 REFLECTOR "15" 4x7inch-Box , a very special and celebratory release for their 15th anniversary - 9 (old) songs, reinterpreted by REFLECTOR plus friends and long-time partners in crime, e.g. members of THE STRIGGLES, HELLA COMET, BULBUL, BUG, BROKEN.HEART.COLLECTOR, you name it. this album is a blast, with REFLECTOR's typical wall of sounds combined with their guests pushing the whole thing into a new dimension. But remaining still REFLECTOR. sounds good? yes.

As of other news, METALYCEE is still working on their new album, which is due to come some time next year. All of the METALYCEE guys and gal are further busy with various other projects and bands: Bernhard Breuer is touring and recording and releasing good stuff with TUMIDO and ELEKTRO GUZZI, Melita Jurisic has been casted for a role in "Mad Max - Fury Road" and is still filming in Namibia and Nik Hummer finished the short movie "Trespass" with Paul Wenninger, which is currently shown at the Viennale.
BULBUL is going to release a 7inch on Rock Is Hell (one of our favourite partners-in-crime) and are further working on a new album for 2013.
And finally, IN-KATA (ex-Quetzal) are going to release their new album "thanatopraxis" on november 12th. of course, it'll be available via our mailorder. a beauty!
