The Recent Music Heroes blog posted a review of Meanwhile Project.ltd’s Sober EP.
Quote: “a peculiar (just trying to avoid describing it as “macabre”) shit which contains musique concrète-hued mourning classical music and essentially obsessive noirscapes, by the way including a cover version of the Pink Floyd`s coolest song Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun.”

This is the trailer, which includes brunk’s music:
Today is our birthday! Seven years ago we released our first free album download: Water, Wind and Sails.
We have seen many labels come and go in the past seven years, but we are still alive and kicking and proud of it! In the past year we haven’t put out as many releases as in the early days, but rest assured that we are working on our schedule for 2012 already and that you will hear from us again…. soon!
Thanks to everyone who supported WM Recordings in the past seven years. We couldn’t have done it without you.
WM Recordings artist René Vis was recently played on BBC Radio. Twice! Check out what Tom Robinson had to say about him:
8th June was World Oceans Day, and for the last few years WM Recordings act Keshco have contributed to special Oceans Day CDs curated by Notebook Of A Mermaid. This time they recorded a version of Brian Eno’s “By This River”.
Andy Brain – acoustic guitar, vocal, production (via 8-track and Buzz)
Robert Follen – percussive orchestra, vocal
Luke Sample – lap steel guitar, flute
The video was filmed in Gillespie Park, a haven of tranquility near the Emirates Stadium in North London.

With the release of the first album Today is Sunday on WM Recordings in 2008 MeanwhileProject.Ltd first started as a one-man-project.
Now Meanwhileproject.ltd is back with The Joey Burns EP, which was recorded with a full band. The EP will be followed later this year by the new album The Judas Hole.
Download The Joey Burns EP here. It’s free!
The EP already got a great review on the Music Dissection blog:
“Please don’t shrug this EP off as another couple of free tracks available as such because of their unimportance. Instead, take quarter of an hour out of your evening, stick some headphones on and race across the wide west on your dashing stallion.” Read the full review here.
Zloty Dawai did it again. They pressed the red button and recorded the sounds of their sine-powered engines that are transporting them through time and space – for more than a decade, now.
Their latest album is called Torso Apart, another 44 minute adventure into the accoustic realms of free improv. Free download here.
Out now on WM Recordings: Ostrich Von Nipple Contemplates The Cosmos. A must for fans of The Residents, Snakefinger and the like. The album is available from all major download stores, including iTunes and Amazon.
Check out the video for the track “Cannibalism is funny”:
If you’re in Europe you can preview the complete album in Spotify.
