Romero Records 8th Birthday!

It’s been 8 years since the birth of Romero Records, and to celebrate we’re putting on a massive party – featuring Umlaut’s first Sydney show in years, the album launch of Julian Curwin’s ‘Midnight Lullaby’ (featuring Stu Hunter, Lloyd Swanton and Jess Ciampa) and much more excitement!

All happening May 7 at Lazybones Lounge. Keep updated via the facebook event.

‘Midnight Lullaby’ coming soon…

Romero Records is excited to announce ‘Midnight Lullaby’, the latest album from guitarist/composer Julian Curwin. Although he has been producing recordings for over 20 years, this is the first release under Curwin’s own name.

In essence a collection of dark lullabies, it is a subtle blend of jazz, classical, film music and latin sounds. The album features an all-star ensemble of pianist Stu Hunter (The Migration, Tina Harrod, Moniker), bassist Lloyd Swanton (The Necks, Ambon, The catholics) and percussionist Jess Ciampa (Spaghetti Western Orchestra, The Tango Saloon, Brandenburg Orchestra).

‘Midnight Lullaby’ will be released very soon, keep your eyes… open.

New from Umlaut!

Just six months after their Easter-themed EP ‘Arunachala’, more new music from Umlaut… and this time it’s Halloween!

Meditative and charmingly addictive forays into experimental pop from the mind of Mr Bungle saxman Bär McKinnon, with some help from Melbourne legend Angus Leslie (Sex On Toast).

‘Kintsugi’ is more of a vocal affair than Umlaut’s previous releases, think Bungle with a bit of Beach Boys, Beatles and Badalamenti.
