  • PADANG FOOD TIGERS // God´s Plenty

    The London duo of Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady – introduce us to an enchanting world, often surreal, ambient-folk tapestry full of dreamlike reveries and poignantly real memories. Although the music is deeply rooted in blues and folk, we can hear echoes of Ry Cooder or Virginia Astley, their approach transcends anything you have listened to before. Magical.


    The music inside is to complex, to exploratory, to deliciously strange to have a label. Imersive, but never imposing on us, it takes its listeners to a flight above ourselves and our surroundings, as if studying us in relation to space and time.

  • JOÃO LOBO // Simorgh (LP+CD)

    Simorgh is João Lobo’s latest creation featuring two particularly inspiring musicians: guitar mogul Norberto Lobo and doublebass wonder Soet Kempeneer. Together they explore Lobo’s eclectic musical realm which means rhythmical oceans and melodic hills, big landscapes with very far horizons that seem out of time and space. This is very original music only possible in Lobo´s world.

  • LUIS LOPES LOVE SONG // Emmentes

    Third opus of Luís Lopes Love Song series on Shhpuma, this time with only a nylon-stringed acoustic guitar. Since the amount of devotion and give of self that Lopes always puts in is music the result is an intimate, profound and beautiful music.

  • ANDRÉ GONÇALVES // Instrumentals

    André Gonçalves embraced a new and adventurous journey of composing for conventional, acoustic, musical instruments. Daring to go even further than he has gone before. Since everything Gonçalves does shines this one is no exception - proving us once again what a genius he is. Every piece is so fresh, so positively “innocent” and so astonishing. A wonderful surprise.

  • EGIL KALMAN & FREDRIK RASTEN // Weaving a Fabric of Winds (CD/LP/WAV)

    Kalman & Rasten invite us for an idyllic journey where they explore long lasting and slowly developing chords and justly tuned harmonic relationships. These are warm and depurated sounds that will stick into your head long after the music stops.


    Philadelphian D. Liedel offer us a peculiar blend of rock, jazz, electro, metal, hardcore punk, mambo and calypso. Don't let yourself be fooled by the familiar melodies, because anything can happen at any second in surprising ways. Authentic, grounded and profoundly popular.

  • THE KILLING POPES // Ego Kills

    Second opus of the Killing Popes on Shhpuma - The musical concept has the same coordinates, but pushed even further to the limits and maybe beyond: disjointed structures, jumping grooves, a jazz statement for the second decade of the 21st century, introjecting aspects of art rock and electronic club music. It’s funny, it’s mind blowing, it’s still new and different.  


    The post-production electronic processings of Machinefabriek enabled the musicians to go to unpredictable consequences: a puzzling sort of cybernetic tribal music, primeval dance rhythms associated with the space imaginaries introduced by Sun Ra but also Tangerine Dream.

  • OKER // Susurrus (LP+CD)

    There are inspirations here from folk, minimal composed music, improvised music and maybe even post rock, all formed in a way that sounds like nothing but Oker. "Sussurus" gives us a kind of concrète, acousmatic music where tapes or electronic devices are replaced by acoustic instruments. And it sounds beautifully.

  • JEAN D. L – Forays (Feat. Lee Ranaldo & Margaret Hermant)

    “Forays” is a journey to the inner self more than to the cosmos, and sometimes it gets noisy because there’s nothing in this record of the new age / neo-hippie myth that states the inside of our minds as the place where peace sleeps


    This music isn’t jazz, or rock, or improvised music or any other genre and tendency as such, but assembles elements of all those categories and more in non-conformist ways. This is the cyber-punk dream turned into music, and it’s marvelous.

  • ROBERT DICK & NICOLA L. HEIN // Structures of Unreason

    Aspects and gestures of a percussive, tactile musicality and an atmospheric energy, incisive and pungent at times, at others more soft and airy, but always diffused and pervasive, are the aesthetic signature of the artistic meeting and the mutual sonic intermingling of two extraordinary improvisers.

  • TONED // The Private Sector

    TONED pits the fiercely analog, animalistic saxophone of Tom Weeks against the crushing digital precision of Nathan Corder's eminently mutable networks, alongside the poly directional structures of Leo Suarez’s approach to percussion.

  • TRAVASSOS // Life is a Simple Mess (Book + CD)

    Life is a Simple Mess presents us with an imaginary journey divided into three stages: "Life is Simple", "Life is a Mess" and "Mish-Mash" where simple and complex forms co-exist in a natural and complementary way. Along the way Nate Wooley´s texts give us clues and revelations for a possible interpretation of this symbiotic scenario of the real-unreal.

  • NICOLAS SNYDER // Temporary Places

    These are Temporary Places indeed, moving and evolving, but all the while holding space for personal exploration and contemplation. Just beautiful.
