New Flying Horseman EP coming soon

You may have already heard it by now, but we will be releasing a new Flying Horseman EP titled ‘Navigate’ in two weeks – on November 26, to be exact. Earlier this year Flying Horseman released their highly acclaimed second album ‘Twist’ on Unday, but they have found the time and inspiration to record a truly breathtaking four track EP in between touring, promoting and playing in numerous other bands they're involved with. 

Three of the tracks on Navigate are solo performances by frontman Bert Dockx, stripped down songs which showcase his particular talent for writing and performing electrifying tunes. This is about as tense as one guitar and one voice can sound. On the A-side of the limited 10” vinyl you’ll find ‘America Is Dead’, an older but unreleased Flying Horseman track, which now receives the full band treatment. The b-side also holds a cover of the Joy Division classic ‘Shadowplay’. 

Belgian newspaper De Standaard have been posting outtakes from Flying Horseman’s Tenace Sessions for these past few weeks in which the band play songs off ‘Twist’. Two more videos of the Tenace Sessions series are yet to be unveiled, which features the band playing songs from this new EP ‘Navigate’. We strongly suggest to keep an eye on De Standaard’s website.

‘Navigate’ summarizes why we love this band so much. It’s moody, gentle and menacing all at the same time, no less than impressive. The EP will be available on limited 10” vinyl and iTunes on November 26.

If you happen to live in Belgium or The Netherlands, be sure to watch De Canvasconnectie this Sunday evening on Canvas, as Bert is curating this week’s show.

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.
