The people behind German based netlabel Aaahh-records share an affection for artists who love both travelling and fiddling about with crafts and techniqual equipment. Treasuring those features, their newest addition to their roster fits in perfectly.
Bryn Martin aka Pinkle is from Chicago but lives in Switzerland, where he is working on his own individualistic music and his Phd in engineering. His affection for experiments and puzzling is not only useful for his profession but also a blessing for fans of independent music at the same time. Calling it, "Quirky brew of moog and acoustic melodies overlaid by hush vocals, conjuring comparisons to the initimate voicing of Andrew Bird and the pop hook of Regina Spektor," Bryn leaves us not much left to explain.
The songs on Pinkles album "House Plants" are mostly guitar-based indie/pop/rock tracks but Bryn mingles them with all sorts of other instruments and sounds. Since the music itself is freely available under a creative commons licence, Aaahh-records encourage people to remix the music. The source tracks of the first song "What I Hope" are already available as a download. The other remix kits will follow on a weekly basis.
And as if this is not enough, they also give people the chance to create their own cover artwork for the release/remixes. This application they call the "Cover Generator." If you head over to Aaahh-record's remix page, you'll also find the stems to other albums they've released the past two years. And as a special bonus you can download the compilation "remix is love" which contains some of the label's favourite remixes.
