SunBurzt – Vårsånger

00-Cover

Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present “Vårsånger”, just in time for Beltane. Five tracks of experimental folktronica, modern versions of traditional Sweish spring folk songs.

“Dmitry Vlasov’s involvement with music could be traced back to 2004, when he started to produce music together with his friends in Moscow, Russia, as Werk 84, almost instantly committing himself to making an unique breed of folktronica with bagpipes, guitars and analogue synthesizers, refusing to work with VSTi technology, DAW, or any kind of digital processing. In 2007 he sent a demo recording to one of the earliest and influential industrial music netlabels in Russia, .NBK Records, and got involved into a netlabel community and collaboration with the owner of the netlabel. Werk 84, later on renamed to SunBurzt, along with neofolk bands For Faith and Ostov (featuring Dmitry), marked their presence within the Russian industrial music community by a chain of albums (including a 7-inch vinyl), compilation tracks, live performances (playing on a same stage with Danish neofolk project Of the Wand & the Moon) and collaborations with many bands and projects in Russia, Israel, and northern Europe.

After the demise of the netlabel, followed by death of its owner in 2010, Dmitry started another project, Meklabor, primarily collaborating with European and American artists, such as Ars Sonor (Sweden), The Implicit Order (USA), Mystified (USA), Ethnomite Pux (UK), and many others. For Faith / Ostov transformed into a stoner / doom metal band Jarzvet, and the earlier, more improvisational incarnation of Werk 84 came into existence again as Hidden Glow.

In 2018 Dmitry decided to resurrect SunBurzt, working this time with Linnea Shannon Friberg (an electronic music producer and Reiki Master from Stockholm, Sweden, owner of a production company Chrysalis Core, and a part of a ‘slipstream trance’ project Tuatha), who contributed her vocals to this EP consisting of modern versions of traditional Swedish spring songs by Anna Maria Roos, Johan Ludvig Runeberg, Gunnar Wennerberg, Julia Nyberg a.k.a. Euphrosyne, and Herman Sätherberg.

MUSIC TO CELEBRATE THE SPRING WITH.

The Glove Of Bones – Heretical Alchemy

Cover

Working with source materials from the Lithium Toolbox, this album is an industrial deep dive into the themes of alchemy, although strains of drone, darkened beats, experimental dark ambient, and avant-garde electronica can be found in this auditory elixir as well. This album also features reprocessed sounds/recordings from the UBU Web Archive “Occult Voices – Paranormal Music, Recordings Of Unseen Intelligences 1905 – 2007”, a fascinating collection of recordings featuring, among other things, xenoglossia, trance speech, and ‘paranormal singing’.

Full Download comes with an additional track: “Quintam Essentium (Interficiam Propter Aeris)”.

2018 updates

-Fancy new custom domain name acquired!
-The “Submissions” page has been meticulously re-written. It now includes both album/EP submission guidelines and compilation track guidelines. It mostly remains the same from the previous write-up, although a few important details have been added. Also, we are now accepting up to 20 minute compositions in most compilations. For more details, please check out the “Submissions Page”.
-Vaguely new graphics for the website. I have been debating on getting a new theme, but given that the current one is a legacy/retired theme, and seems to work well for netlabel purposes, I have been on the fence regarding if I should replace it or not.
-The “Participants” list has been updated and should be (hopefully) completely up to date!
-The “Releases” page is still out-of-date. At some point in the near future, I will be instituting a different catalogue number system: one for album/EP releases, and another for compilations. This should hopefully cut down on the confusion. For our most recent work, please visit our Bandcamp site: https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/
-I hope you are all having a healthy, safe, and prosperous 2018!
