VIOLAS Promo Postcard Designed by Me & images supplied by Owain Griffiths. If you see one of these postcards on your travels, be sure to pick one up.

It gives I KA CHING RECORDS great pleasure to announce that Violas‘ new EP, Nos Somnia will be released on I KA CHING Records on 27 August 2012, and as a taster of what’s to come, kindly invite you to download a track off the EP, Penseiri, completely free of charge  HERE 
The Cardiff based five piece’s recent material is released following the success of their last EP, Hwylio//Sailing (Owlet Records) released back in November 2011 on CD, and digitally in January 2012.  The EP drew extensive airplay and publicity with a number of positive reviews appearing in the media, and the Sea Shells track from the EP going viral in March 2012, being the 17th most listened to track on music blogs.
Since forming in 2009, the Violas developed significantly in terms of their music, and since recriuting a fifth member to the group in 2011, their style and music has matured rapidly over the last year.
Nos Somnia will be released on CD and also digitally on itunes, amazon, spotify etc.  Copies of the EP will also be available from the following independant record shops; Awen Meirion (Y Bala); Andy’s Records (Aberystwyth), Spillers Records (Cardiff); The Parrot (Carmarthen), and from www.sadwrn.com .

Huw M ~ Ailgymysgiadau

13 Jul

 To coincide with the UK album release of Huw M – Gathering Dusk on July 30th, an EP of remixes of songs from the album will be available on huwm.bandcamp.com. Every week, between now and the end of the month, a new remix will be released digitally. The first, second & third free download is up now – Not only a brilliant remix of ‘Martha a Mair’ by the wonderful Trwbador but also a Bass heavy Dubstep monster remix of ‘Be’ by Dileu aka Messner. Also the excellent remix by Y Pencadlys aka Haydon Hughes, who’s reworked ‘Dyma Lythyr’. The Remix EP image above is by Me, it’s the same tree that was used on the original ‘Gathering Dusk’ album cover.
