Blackie & The Oohoos album out now

Out today on Unday Records is ‘Song For Two Sisters’, the sophomore album from Blackie & the Oohoos. Blackie & the Oohoos is the band around Loesje and Martha Maieu, two Belgian sisters with a knack for twisted and perplexing tunes. ‘Song For Two Sisters’ is suffused with a tense and dark, otherworldly atmosphere. The psychedelic dream pop and spooky folk is reminiscent of their debut album, but the songs and lyrics have a more mature, eccentric and distilled quality. For those in need of references, Beach House, Beth Gibbons and Mazzy Star might do the trick.

‘Song For Two Sisters’ can now be streamed in its entirety over at 3voor12 Luisterpaal.

The album is out on iTunes, on cd and as a pretty limited gatefold vinyl (also includes the cd).

Proudly presenting Ian Clement

We’re proud to announce Ian Clement is now part of the expanding Unday Records roster, with his debut record ‘Drawing Daggers’ set for release early spring 2013.
Ian Clement is no stranger, as he is part of Belgian rock trio Wallace Vanborn. His solo work is something entirely different and far more intimate though – consider it to be his Mr. Hyde contrary to the Dr. Jekyll he unleashes in Wallace Vanborn.

‘Drawing Daggers’ was recorded during a six month session in the midst of the woods in the south of Belgium with producer Peter Obbels and features contributions by Karel De Backer (Novastar, Mangold), Wouter Van Belle (Dead Man Ray), Jon Birdsong (Beck) and Lara Chedraoui (Intergalactic Lovers). Fans of singer-songwriters like Mark Lanegan, Dan Auerbach and Edward Sharpe will fall head over heels for Ian’s intriguing story-telling.
‘Drawing Daggers’ combines true craftsmanship with lots of soul, authenticity and a sincere heart – a record that draws the listener into a dark yet warm world.
The first single ‘Little Knife’ will be out soon. Stay close.

Imaginary Family vs Amatorski

Glimworm, a show on Belgian radio station, invited Imaginary Family and acclaimed Belgian indie band Amatorski to come over to their studio for a little something they refer to as "Ruisbestuiving”.

Imaginary Family and Amatorski were tucked away in a studio with the task to write and record a collaborative track in just one day time. The result is the touching ‘Birthday Crowd’, which you may already be familiar with since it’s the closing track on Imaginary Family’s charming debut EP ‘Hidden’ (which we released late last month). The video below, soundtracked by ‘Birthday Crowd’, gives you an insight of the recording process in the studio of

Imaginary Family's debut EP 'Hidden' is out now. Available on iTunes, on cd and limited 10" vinyl.

Maya's Moving Castle & Imaginary Family out now!

Busy times at the Unday HQ!  We have released two amazing debuts this week.

This is what it would sound like if David Lynch asked The Cure and Björk to collaborate on the soundtrack for his new movie. Darkly beautiful. Intensely sweet. Unruly and exciting. New wave, indie pop or minimal wave? You name it.

Maya's Moving Castle. This young lady bundles all of her captivating energy in her music, which is both intriguing and other-worldly. Her music reminds us of Zola Jesus and Bat For Lashes at times, sometimes we even refer to it as voodoo pop. It sounds as if you're taking a lonely trip through a cursed forest during a dark night. Is it a coincidence we're releasing this album near Halloween? Who knows.

Her self-titled debut record is out now and available to stream over at the Dutch 3voor12 website.

Maya's Moving Castle will be presenting these songs live in various places in Belgium during November - all dates can be found over at the band's Facebook page.

This is Belgian folkstress Imaginary Family’s debut. Along with the stunning EP opener The Bird Watcher (check out the lovely animated video that came out earlier this year), the EP holds 4 more charming songs which fit the current weather perfectly. Minimal folk songs, sparsely arranged and touching.
Belgian band Amatorski are also featured on Birthday Crowd, the final track of the EP.

The EP is now streaming in its entirity over at our Soundcloud page or at 3voor12

Just like Maya's Moving Castle, this EP is not only out digitally, but also on vinyl. Ask your preferred shop!
