The Prague-based label AMDISCS is, like its umbrella organisation the AM180, committed to a fierce DIY ethos and strong visual aesthetics. The label is one of their youngest of activities, which also includes the Creepy Teepee festival (read our review here), but has already carved its mark on the world’s underground scene with numerous releases.
This year’s installment of its annual compilation, A’M 2012, is a gargantuan 52-track sonic manifesto of synth-heavy, hypnagogic glo-fi fringes of ‘pop’, wyrdness and DIY dance as it stands in 2012 and beyond featuring tracks by the label’s roster including Teams, Police Academy 6, Dream Boat, affiliates such as Pictureplane, as well as promising new talent (including CVLTS, Men in Burka, Dubai, Sensible Soccers and others).
The compilation is released as a CD accompanying the Czech magazine Živel in March and a digital bonus download that also comes with covetable custom-made tees designed by AMDISCS and made by New York’s NVR MND.
Apparently, “A’M 2012? puts well being and pleasure constantly first!”, so sit back, relax, and enjoy a blissful journey into their audio pleasuredome.
