The second single from the forthcoming album UnravelPlay

The second single from the forthcoming album Unravel

Ambient industrial planes laced with electronics and pop as well as an attractive elusiveness—this is the new song Timeless from Czech band Manon Meurt. The second single from the forthcoming album Unravel, produced by Eddie Stevens, is coming out on Minority Records.

“Genre-wise, Timeless is an antipole of our autumn single Mirrors. Eddie has widened our sound spectrum and on Timeless, he emphasized the dynamics and the way we tell the story,” the drummer Jiří Bendl says.

British producer and musician Eddie Stevens became famous for his collaboration with Moloko and Róisín Murphy, however, he has been gaining accolades on the Czech and Slovak music scene as well where he has produced several award-winning albums.

“Timeless was written during the evenings on the way from work in trams and in the car, where life’s hum intensifies. Everyone is headed somewhere, in a rush, and the horizon is changing colour above all this, as if to oppose the hustle and bustle with its magnificence and to remind us of the triviality of this haste, of its fleetingness. I enjoy watching this hum, it reminds me how great it is that I can disconnect from it for a moment and just take in the present moment,” explained Kateřina Elznicová, the author of the lyrics and multi-instrumentalist, about the origin of the song.

The Orff Brothers are going on tour in April and release Song for Stefania Sauer single on streaming services

The autumn release of The Orff Brothers' Šero and Bingriwingri album reissue on the Minority Records label will be followed up by the band's six-city tour in April. The Orff Brothers will perform on April 17 at the Jazz Tibet Club in Olomouc, on April 18 at the Dock in Ostrava, on April 19 at the Church of St. Janů in Opava, April 24 at the Kabinet Múz in Brno, April 25 at the Kasárna Karlín in Prague and April 26 at the Oskar Nedbal Theatre in Tábor.

The Orffs also prepared a small surprise for the fans - the release of the Song for Stefania Sauer on streaming platforms.

"We went back almost thirty years when this song was created and re-recorded it in a simple vocal arrangement with only the accompaniment of the talented young Krnov pianist Matěj Černý," says singer and guitarist Ivan Gajdoš. The contemplative Song for Stefania Sauer is accompanied by a video clip, which is supported by band members and tattoo artist and illustrator Nella Vilímková.

About the label

Minority Records is a record label based in Prague dedicated to releasing music of various genres in physical formats, mostly contemporary electronic music overlapping into classical and jazz music. The primary physical medium of the record company is vinyl.

1

Acclaimed pressing quality

The production of vinyl records is carried out in collaboration with family-run vinyl pressing plant Pallas Group GmbH, established in 1948 by Karl Neumann in Diepholz, Germany. Manufactured products by Pallas Group GmbH are considered by many audiophiles as the best in the European market, due to the lowest surface noise of vinyl itself. A special PVC granulation product developed in cooperation with Pallas Group GmbH also does not contain toxic materials such as lead, cadmium or toluene.

2

Meticulous mastering

We have established cooperation with leading specialized mastering studios both in Germany and the United Kingdom with a long tradition in mastering and cutting services of press matrices for vinyl records.

3

Audiophile vinyl quality

In order to achieve audiophile quality of vinyl records, we had to avoid using the in-house pressing plant cutting services and therefore we solely work with private external mastering and cutting companies as SST GmbH in Frankfurt am Main, Abbey Road Studios in London, for the preparation of the lacquer master discs, and Pauler Acoustics in Northeim for the preparation of the Direct Metal Master discs, better known as DMMs.
