Robert Bloemkolk This is such a labor of love. Wonderful compilation of obscure, DIY synth driven post-punk-funk. At the time I didn't get it, couldn't get my ears around it. But in this time of data driven streaming services, these DIY tracks are an absolute delight. A breath of fresh air. Favorite track: A2. Drem Bruinsma - Landscape Shifting Left & Right.

about

We feel so glad to introduce Domestic Landscape (Subterranean Synth-Wave Compilation). It is difficult to describe this album without using typical and recurring terms such as: ‘extremely weird’ or ‘very rare to find’…although it is inarguably true, and on this occasion we have wanted to go farther: we introduce you a selection of songs which, most of them, have never been released in physical format and can't be found in any other digital media until nowadays. Other few were published in very limited editions in cassette format, usually aimed at a local promotion of a kind of music which was totally inaccessible to the crowds, more than thirty years ago…

Domestic Landscape is a compilation formed by ten groups from all over the world; Moss Garten, A Haunted Sawmill, Son Of Sam, Artificial Organs... Some names will be familiar to those who have followed Domestica Records from the start, since about 2011, and it is the first time that we publish other formations such as Hymn, Moral, El, Drem Bruinsma, Nostalgie Éternelle or No Honey From These, and in any case it is the first time that these songs appear in vinyl.

Domestic Landscape is not a very common or habitual compilation, at least that is what we intended. Here you will find very different sounds, difficult to label, a range of songs made in a moment which is crucial to us, unknown but, at the same time, wonderful in the endless history of our beloved music. Finally, let us invite you to listen to this document so that you can judge it yourselves but, above all, our most important wish is that you enjoy it.

Edition of 450 numbered copies. Double side handmade printed cover. Album presented in a special die-cut jacket and heavy green cardboard sleeve. It includes an insert (30x30 cm) with extra information.
