At the invitation of Universal Music Austria we had the honor to welcome jazz singer Kandace Springs at our recording studio. Little did we know that we were about to experience one of the greatest moments of music at Supersense: Kandace is a rising star in the realm of jazz music, with an energy and a voice that gives you goose bumps, inevitably. But see for yourself:  Kandace recorded several songs on our direct-to-disc Mastercut. We added our letterpress artwork and an analog instant portrait to create a truly special record.

Gregory Porter at the Supersense Living Room Recording Studio

  We're very proud to let you know that our Living Room Recording Studio has been graced by no one less but a recent Grammy winner: Gregory Porter! At the invitation of Universal Music Austria, he visited Supersense last October in order to record a few of his songs on vinyl.  [powr-multi-slider id=39f53fba_1490100369]     "We are doing a live recording straight to vinyl -there is no editing, no fixing, no auto tune, it's just me,the needle and the music. It's exciting, and the reasonI prefer this is the humanity to it - there are cracksand wrinkles, which makes it valuable, daring andvulnerable. And all of that comesacross in the recording." Gregory Porter It's our honor to have created a truly special...

Are We Not Men – We Are Devo

  *** Please scroll down for English version *** Devo wirken heute wie Parade-Nerds. Sie begannen vor Punk, aber waren mit ihrem synthetischen Wissenschaftler-Pop im Grunde schon wieder Post-Punk. Devo postulieren die Rückentwicklung der Gesellschaft und manifestieren eben doch deren Fortschritt. Genau diese Polarität macht sie zu einer der spannendsten Bands ihrer Zeit, zumal sie eben oftmals ihre Instrumente auch selber bauten. Getreu dem fünften Punkt des Devo-lutionary Oath: „Wir müssen uns wiederholen.“ präsentieren wir ein legendäres Instrument ihrer Wahl. Den Nachbau der legendären La Baye 2x4 von 1967. Im Ursprungsjahr wurden nur 45 Stück gefertigt, jetzt 47 Jahre später erschienen in einer kleinen handgefertigten Neuauflage. Bei SUPERSENSE findet sich eines dieser Unikate.     ARE WE NOT MEN – WE ARE DEVO Today Devo may seem like these typical nerds. They began before punk began, but with their...

October Records Pt.2: Action Beat - Where are you?

A record cover rarely reflected the sound of a band as perfectly as the artwork of the last Action Beat cover designed by Sounds of Subterrania. Deconstruction is one of the main themes of this noiseband from Blenchy and noise means noise means 4 drummers, 2 bass players and 5 guitars, means a incredibly engaging and driving rhythm and magnificent guitar walls. One embarks on an instrumental journey through heavy industrial to fine mechanics emphasized through the arrangement of tracks, closing the circle on the cover. It's made out of 100% rusty steel meaning 100% deconstruction. Available at our palace and in our online shophttp://the.supersense.com/collections/vinyl-records/products/action-beat

October Records Pt.1: Listener - Return to Struggleville LP / Wooden Heart LP / Time is a machine LP (Sounds of Subterrania)

Everyone who is blessed to have witnessed a live performance by the trio around Dan Smith from Arkansas, will confirm that Listener is a truly exceptional band.Dan tells stories about life, about failure, line by line with haunting intensity and richness of detail. Stories about his own inner conflicts in a world that to him is both unbelievably beautiful and brutally cruel at the same time. It is therefore all the more important to find an artwork that perfectly represents his music. The cover is made of Gmund Treasury Traditional, one of world's most classy fine papers, the themes from Greg Coulton are not printed, but instead engraved with a laser beam, which takes about 22 minutes per copy. This...
