LAZYROOM | Native Narrative | PPR003 | CD | July 2012
Native Narrative is the debut of the four piece shoegazing act from Yogyakarta, Lazyroom. The album contains heavy layered dreamy soundscapes that can be referred to the 90’s shoegazing sound as well as its new revivalists. Native Narrative is also released in the USA via Patetico Recordings. The album “contains 10 tracks, ranging from the aggressively loud to the introspective and jangly, capturing shoegaze’s punk rock, new wave, and pop tendencies with equal valor” – Marcel Thee from The Jakarta Globe.
Chapter 1: Istas Promenade is a lovely debut by the most prominent indie ukulele artist in Indonesia. Ten tracks of smooth, folky, yet go a wee experimental with layers and synths in couple tracks would get rid off any perceptual images you’d probably think an ukulele-based group would present.
“Instead of being vintage, they’re taking a time machine to the future, imagining the past from the day that yet to come. The result is a timeless music.” Taufiq Rahman from The Jakartabeat.
