MAGNIFICENT BIRD by Gabriel Kahane


MAGNIFICENT BIRD by Gabriel Kahane song img

"A collection of sweet and intimate songs that have the immediacy of a pencil sketch and the depth of a mural." NO DEPRESSION

A gorgeous, intimate collection of ten musical snapshots... Kahanes lyrics sparkle with an incisive blend of sentiment and clarity, and he matches them with music that pushes more restlessly than ever against the constraints of the song form... the artwork that results is glistening and magical." San Francisco Chronicle

On his new album, Gabriel Kahane chronicles the final month of a year spent off the internet. Shuttling between the quotidian mundane and a series of overlapping global crises, he sings of grief, nostalgia, shame, and salvation: a portrait of daily life in the roiling chaos of the 21st century.

Idunna said: 'it is very sad to know that many musicians of his time criticized his songs negatively talking about the instability of the compositions, when the man created these wonders. We shouldn't give up of our dreams and passions for not being understood by others, sometimes what we do can calm someone's heart years ahead of us'

David Preiss said: 'What a good friend is Satie during the hard days of the 2020 quarantine.'

Averses by Déhà song img

AVERSES is the album that started everything with Dehà's new band, DRACHE. Being too different from what the band became, he decided to release this material as his own, instead of Drache.

It's too different in composition, and in a way, the vocals, even if I found it right there, while doing this album. AVERSES is more... melancholic and nostalgic in all ways, Drache is not. So this deserved a stand alone release!" - D

This is atmospheric black metal, a raw way, in a more "chill" mood but not only. It's a vestige!
