After a short break to enjoy a little bit of sun during this summer, we’re thrilled to get back to work for this second part of the year! We’ve 3 releases planned by the end of 2019, so we better get started with this first one!
KØDE is a band born in Lausanne a few years ago under the impulsion of Saskia (you might know her since she was part of The Chikitas). After a first EP released through our brothers at Cold Smoke Records, the band is now ready to release it’s first album Discrete Transformation via our small structure, and we couldn’t be more happy about that! Read the whole biography HERE.
The music displayed on Discrete Transformation is very personnal but also reminds of styles we’ve always liked here, at the Division Cartel. There are noise rock/grunge influences in there, as well as deep slowcore stuff. It’s also very rocky, even punky and somethime gloomy. Well, you’ll have to make an idea for yourself, I guess! The album will see the light on October the 18th & we’ll throw a huge release party the next day in Lausanne @ L’Espace Autogéré in order to celebrate properly!
The album comes in a delicious black vinyl with reverse printed cover & the cd is a pretty digisleeve with a 24 pages poster folded insert. It’ll of course also be available in digital.
Because one release party is not enough, we’ve also invited KØDE to our 8th VENDREDIVISION where they will exclusively present their new songs especially for you, lucky bastards! It’ll take place on September the 20th and we’ll offer the champagne! Be there early!
We’ll of course unveil some music very soon, stay tuned! In the meantime, why don’t go greeting our new band on their social media?
