Last Saturday we had a tremendous Le Mini Who?! at Kapitaal. The Future's Dust played a beautiful set. I am Oak played a great show, with a very large attendance (sorry to everyone who couldn't get in), and Herrek (ft. Lukas of LUIK) surpriced us with some amazing covers!
Fortunately somebody in the crowd captured the last two songs. We don't know which one we like best, so we recommend them both!
Revenge (Sparklehorse cover):
Wounded Knee (Ratbone cover):
Thanks to everyone who was there and helped made it happen!

In 2010 we released I Am Oak’s debut-album ‘On Claws’. Three years, two albums and a sold out 7" later, On Claws is sold out and deserves a reissue! This reissue is the same warm record based on acoustic guitars and vocals, completed with banjo, bass, organ and beats, but with the addition of two beautiful bonustracks, also recorded in 2009.
We've sent the master to print today, so you can pre-order the 'On Claws' (reissue) cd now, all items will be shipped within two weeks: Pre order in our store

Earlier this year we started making Spotify playlists to introduce you to the gems of our release-collection. This time we've asked Stefan Breuer for his favorites:
"For the Snowstar Records 10-year-anniversary, I made a selection of my favorite Snowstar-released songs (first half of the playlist). My Secret Love Parade by The Secret Love Parade always meant a lot to me and therefore opens the playlist. This was the first song I mixed for Snowstar Records and it's still an amazing song. I had to add some of my own projects (Lost Bear, The Subhuman), to have enough songs to create a proper playlist. It's not that I prefer my own songs, that's why I put them last :) The tracks by Herrek and Kim Janssen prove that this year is also a very good year for new music; these beautiful songs blew me away.
The second half of the playlist consists of songs which in one way or another remind me of, or relate to, the Snowstar songs of the first half, arranged in the same order. For instance, the choir of Herrek's My People always reminded me a bit of The Microphones' song, and the vibe of LUIK's I am Oak cover Pollen of the Plains is similar to me as the Sparklehorse song's vibe. Altogether, the songs on this part of the playlist has been HIGHLY influential to my own music, and all these songs mean a lot to me. I hope people start exploring the beautiful catalog of Snowstar Records through this playlist, and maybe gain a little bit of an insight to where my own influences and taste is coming from."
