After dropping a series of quality EPs, Munich-based producer, part-time DJ and Permanent Vacation label co-head Tom Bioly is back with his debut album, entitled “A Call For Romance”, under his TB moniker. A great ride from start to finish, the nine-track record finds TB delivering new romantics, inspired by influences like The Cure’s “The Holy Hour“, Boards of Canada’s late ’90s electronica, Miami Vice tropic percussion and Angelo Badalamenti’s “Twin Peaks”. Acid drops, string distortions, lushed melody bits, hushed robo vox and washed space guitars are being layered and sprinkled over machine beats and disco drums. Here’s ‘Drive”, one of our favorite cuts from the record. Ride with us.

The “A Call For Romance” LP is out now on Permanent Vacation. Buy it here.

Munich-based trio Carl Gari, comprised of Jonas Yamer, Till Funke and Jonas Friedlich, are kicking things off this year with a superb six-track mini album, entitled “Shipster”, on Permanent Vacation. The new record follows their well received and idiosyncratic debut “Darraje” 12” on The Trilogy Tapes, for which they collaborated with Egyptian singer and spoken word artist Abdullah Miniawy.

For the new record “Shipster” they perfected their unique blend of psychedelic ingredients, dubbed out drums, drony sounds and a general hazyness. The mystic chants of Abdullah, who is also featured on two tracks, weave themselves into the band’s lively sound texture. Apart from that Carl Gari showcase the diversity of their analogue driven and melodic approach to electronic music through four beautifully detailed tracks.
