Press Info:
With a burgeoning fanbase, galvanised by a trio of EPs and his captivating online sessions, London based songwriter Charlie Cunningham releases his debut album ‘Lines’ on Dumont Dumont on January 27th.

For the past two years Cunningham’s career has been on a steady upward trajectory. He’s filled venues both here and abroad – at his headlining shows or alongside the likes of King Creosote, Beirut, and Rodriguez. Selling out shows all over Europe and his only UK show to date at St Giles-In-The-Field was sold out and in February earlier this year. His popularity also reflected in Spotify plays in excess of 6.5 million.

It was a move to Seville to hone his guitar technique that catalysed Cunningham’s creativity. Taking the percussive qualities of flamenco, he began to thread his melodies and lyrics together producing his first EP to critical acclaim. Cunningham’s playing was sharp enough to carve songs laden with delicate flourishes, intricate melodic turns, and moments of stark introspection, songs that are both expansive and intimate.
“The whole ability to write songs is probably in a lot more people than they think. A lot of people can probably do it; it’s just hard knowing how to start,’ he admits. “I think what slowed me down was just over-thinking every possible thing. So now I know that if something feels right to just trust that.”

In terms of ‘Lines’ that start was provided by ‘An Opening’ the first track written for the album and something of a breakthrough in terms of setting the agenda and finding it’s producer.
Recalls Cunningham – “It was intended to be a trial track to see if we’d – Duncan Tootill and I – ended up working together. After this Duncan went on to do the whole album. It’s a subtle progression in style from my EPs, but also the most electronic my music has been to date. I feel like it really sets the tone for the rest of the record.”

The lyrically confident ‘Minimum’ and vocally rhythmic ‘Answers’ compliment new avenues scoped by the record’s production. ‘Minimum’ says Cunningham “went through more changes and versions than any song I have ever recorded. It’s a direct song, which is something I think I am always striving towards.”

A self confessed perfectionist Cunningham paid heed to his own advice when compiling the track list. “You Sigh almost didn’t make the record. It was relatively spontaneous to write so I think at first I felt it was kind of throwaway and initially dismissed it. I reckon I was put off by how easily it came together! But I grew to really like the melody, character and general simplicity of it. The song is about not being too hard on yourself, so I’m glad I took my own advice on that one.”

Cunningham wrapped up 2016 with select dates around Europe before heading out with King Creosote in the UK in January and then his own shows across Europe.

AG Geige – Ein Amateurfilm

 

Press Info (English):
Major Label is proud to announce a massive Collection from Art-Collective AG Geige for their 30th anniversary. AG Geige was one of the most unusual and innovative bands of their time. Founded 1986 by Frank Bretschneider, Jan Kummer, Ina Kummer und Torsten Eckhardt, joined later by Olaf Bender. An avant-garde electro sound, quirky lyrics and oblique stage costumes were their trademark. Despite the experimental approach, the band reached an astounding popularity to its separation in 1992.

The limited box combines the known LPs, unreleased album recordings, live and cover versions, an unpublished side project, a documentary and partly exclusive texts and fine photographs.

Overall Concept / Packagedesign: Lars Nagler

 

Press Info (German):
Das Major Label freut sich sehr, zum 30-jährigen Bandjubiläum eine umfassende Zusammenstellung des Künstler-Kollektiv´s AG Geige zu präsentieren. Die AG Geige gehörte zu den ungewöhnlichsten und innovativsten Bands ihrer Zeit. Als Autodidakten gründeten Frank Bretschneider, Jan Kummer, Ina Kummer und Torsten Eckhardt 1986 in Chemnitz die AG Geige, später stieß Olaf Bender hinzu. Ein avantgardistischer Elektrosound, skurrile Texte und schräge Bühnenkostüme wurden ihre Markenzeichen. Trotz des experimentellen Konzepts erreichte die Band bis zu ihrer Trennung 1992 eine erstaunliche Popularität.

Die limitierte Box vereint die bekannten LP´s, unveröffentlichte Albumaufnahmen, Live- und Coverversionen, ein bisher unveröffentlichtes Nebenprojekt, einen Dokumentarfilm und teils exklusive Texte und prima Fotomaterial.
