2mf024_webfeatured_300

Too Many Fireworks are delighted to release the follow-up single of Polish duo, Mateusz Franczak and Miron Grzegorkiewicz, performing under the name Giorgio Fazer. The single, “Pieśń o początku świata” (2mf024) is another in their series of compositions for two guitars, electronics and voice; and is the precursor to the forthcoming album – “Gorzki to chleb jest polskość”.

All tracks for the album relate to work by various Polish poets. The band has described the poetry as having helped them find the lyrical nature, the sensuality, and a variety of interpretation that has helped them develop this first piece of work. The most important link, however, is the building of mood, of contemplation, and of asking questions that do not have simple answers: Who are we? What do we live for, and What does it mean to be Polish?

The single is is available on digital download and on streaming services.

Too Many Fireworks are delighted to re-release the debut single of Polish duo, Mateusz Franczak and Miron Grzegorkiewicz, performing under the name Giorgio Fazer. The re-release of the single, “Giorgio Fazer rozmyśla nad jeziorem w letni wieczór” (2mf023) is the precursor to a 2nd single, and then an album – “Gorzki to chleb jest polskość” – later in the year.

With Giorgio Fazer rozmyśla nad jeziorem w letni wieczór, the Polish collaborators of many years, Franczak and Grzegorkiewicz, have set out a beautiful statement of intent for their new project. It is the first in a series of improvised tracks for two guitars, electronics and voice that will make up the tracklist of their debut album “Gorzki to chleb jest polskość” which will be released on Too Many Fireworks later in the year. All tracks for the album relate to work by various Polish poets. The band has described the poetry as having helped them find the lyrical nature, the sensuality, and a variety of interpretation that has helped them develop this first piece of work. The most important link, however, is the building of mood, of contemplation, and of asking questions that do not have simple answers: Who are we? What do we live for, and What does it mean to be Polish?

The single is backed with a remix by Too Many Fireworks label boss, Neil Milton, and is available on digital download and on streaming services.


Päfgens – Tinyold Hands (2mf022)

webpostpafWe are very happy to premiere the new album by Slovak duo, Päfgens; Tinyold Hands (2mf022). The 8 song album is out now and is available on CD, cassette tape, and both digital download and streaming across a wide variety of online services including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and Tidal.

With “Tinyold Hands”, Päfgens have crafted a recording imbued with the ambience and character of quiet wilderness, undeniably assisted by field recordings made over glacial icelandic landscapes. The album is a perfect snapshot of Päfgens’ sound; recorded live, as it was, to analog tape and mixed with these delicate and subtle field recordings that add to the band’s sonic toolbox. It is a beautiful collection of atmospheric, and emotionally affecting songs marked with instantly recognisable chorus-effected bass, reverb-soaked guitars, and 80s-inspired alt-pop melodies.
