The Russia-based record label Intonema have announced two new releases. The first is 1 & 2, the debut album from Songs, a newly formed quartet whose members include Lucio Capece, Catherine Lamb, Rishin Singh, and Stine Sterne. Lucio Capece had previously released the excellent Less is Less - Music for Flying and Pendulating Speakers on Intonema back in 2013 but this marks the first release on the label for the other three musicians. The album is made up of two compositions by Singh himself that make up the 46-minute runtime. You can hear a sample of the record, as well as purchase it here.
The second new release from Intonema comes from a trio made up of Gaudenz Badrutt, Ilia Belorukov, and Jonas Kocher. The three musicians had toured together around Russia last year and a recording of their performance in St. Petersburg makes up the material found on Rotonda (album cover above). You can watch a clip of their live show and purchase the album here. Both 1 & 2 and Rotonda are limited to 200 CDs.
