The Hazzah Album Release Afterparty

All the info for this weekend in one place:

🚀 The Hazzah album release 🚀

The Hague based garage rockers will release their debut album ‘Post’ online on Friday March 15th, with a release show on Saturday March 16th at Paard (support: Torii) and a official afterparty at De Zwarte Ruiter Den Haag (DJs: Cosmic Silk)!

‘Refining their post-psychedelic roots for their upcoming debut album, The Hazzah’s songs have become louder, deeper and shorter. The scuzzy sounds and words draw influences from bands like Black Lips, The Rolling Stones, Ty Segall and Tomorrows Tulips’.

 

The Hazzah Album Release Show March 16th

We would love to see you all at The Hazzah’s album launch at Paard in The Hague on the 16th of March! Our very  own Torii will be doing the support at this show, and an afterparty wil be at Zwarte Ruijter.

Tickets are €6 and can be found here.  Check out the Facebook Event here.  You can now pre-order POST on 12” heavy weight vinyl in our webshop – click here. 

We would like to invite you to the celebration of the release of ‘Post’, debut album by The Hazzah. These boys from The Hague have played in every corner of the city and added close to 100 shows throughout the rest of The Netherlands and France in the past 2 years. During the release show at Paard the band will perform their new material and the album will be available for the first time on 12” vinyl.

The Hazzah’s music is a reflection of the warm comfort of existential freedom experienced through a smoke break during a long road trip. Refining their post-psychedelic roots for their upcoming debut album, The Hazzah’s songs have become louder, deeper and shorter.

‘Post’ was recorded over the summer of 2018 together with producer/engineer Michiel Mutsaerts. The album came into being in recording spaces varying from high-end studios like Wisseloord in Hilversum, to a DIY temporary self-built studio in the headquarters of a scouting group in the North of Holland. The Hazzah recorded their new song without any restraints, resulting in an album that beautifully combines the members’ diverse music tastes.

Backed by acclaimed Dutch live agency Friendly Fire, The Hazzah have toured extensively throughout the Netherlands, performing at festivals like Le Mini Who, Dutch Design Week, Life I Live, Crossing Border and Paaspop, and supporting acts like Mattiel (CA), Pale Waves (UK), Alex Lahey (AU), St. Tropez (NL), CFM (VS), Hallo Venray (NL), Equal Idiots (BE), The Glücks (BE), Phobophobes (UK). Their music has been featured on 3FM, in Spotify playlists like ‘New Alternative’, and on music/film blogs like Noisey, The Daily Indie and Booooooom TV.

Avocet Announce EP Release at The Poetry Club, Glasgow

Avocet are releasing their debut EP during a night in their hometown of Glasgow, on May 23rd, at The Poetry Club!

Drawing inspiration from both the psychedelic folk scene alive in Britain during the 1960’s and 70’s, and free form blues, Herbie, Iona and Sam create their own compositions on harp, guitar, double bass and vocals. Their music has been compared to that of artists like like Nick Drake, Pentangle, and John Martyn.

Recently signed to Dutch/Scottish record label Mink Records, they travelled to the Netherlands to record their debut record at the Abbey Road Institute, Amsterdam.

Avocet have performed on BBC Scotland, and at an array of festivals and venues including Celtic Connection and Eden Festival. They were winners of the Danny Kyle Celtic Connections Award in 2017.

The trio released their debut single ‘Causeway’ on January 26th, 2018. The track received critical acclaim from platforms like Folk Radio U.K, and can be found in a number of Spotify playlists.

PHOBOPHOBES (U.K.)

Nothing is stable, everything is usually on the brink of collapse, yet Phobophobes have dragged their weird and wonderful dark psychedelic rock’n’roll into the light of “Miniature World”, their recently released debut album. Their influences are widespread – and atypical – with the music closer to the spirit of apocalyptic garage rock than it is to consumer pop. Think Wall of Voodoo, Joe Meek and Leonard Cohen via Monty Python and The Magic Roundabout. Phobophobes are now as settled as a band as they have ever been and “Miniature World” serves notice that a new era has begun. Recently they have started to gain more and more attention. Lauren Laverne has regularly played the band’s tracks on BBC 6 Music, while the album was mixed by Youth, of Killing Joke, who produced “Urban Hymns” by The Verve.

THE MIGHTY BREAKS

Known for their high energy live shows, The Mighty Breaks’ weapons of choice are fuzzy guitars, keyboard riffs and the perhaps unusual but well thought out addition of saxophone, a combination so constructed that it would make any set of ears twitch. Their Garage Pop/90’s alternative sound is inspired by artists like Guided By Voices, Black Lips and The Dandy Warhols. TMB released their debut EP on Mink Records last year, toured the Netherlands and Italy, and are currently working on their debut album.

THE HAZZAH

Explosive fuzz sounds, a groovy transistor organ and thick waves of ‘verb will keep you floating as the boys of The Hazzah bring you their surfy garagerock. Their combination of sultry psych jams, garage and a load of live energy make every show an experience. Their sound has been described as The Black Lips and Allah Las having a one night stand. The Hazzah released their debut EP ‘XEX’ on Mink Records last year. Noisey/Vice premiered their video for ‘Not Getting Older’, and the band played Dutch travelling music festival Popronde. The band is currently recording new material.

TEDDY’S HIT

The new Amsterdam-based band everyone is talking about. After releasing a teaser of their debut track ‘Tori’s Love’ on Pornhub, accompanied by a great video by Danny Griffioen, they grabbed the attention of the Dutch indie media. Their slackerrock sounds like a tougher mix of Ultimate Painting, Mac DeMarco and White Denim.
