Label Round Up – Cursed Tongue Records and Awakening Records Announce New Signings

Not enough labels send us stuff. Why? Who fucking knows…if we were a band signed to a label we’d certainly be like “You should at least be sending out press releases to a DIY site like”.

If you run a label and have ASIAN BANDS ON YOUR LABEL – please send us your press releases anytime: info AT

Danish label Cursed Tongue Records have announced the signing of Singapore stoner doom band Marijannah:


CTR-027 is the sophomore album by Singapore’s psychedelic stoner doom super group Marijannah. We will roll out the red carpet and give this new kickass album a fitting treatment in the earliest of 2020. More info and pre-orders in a not so far future…

Marijannah exhibits on their new album a cohesiveness of sound and sonic depth that isn’t found often in the genre. The four band members also allow the songs to evolve organically, each section moving seamlessly to the next one, leaving the listener mesmerized by the astral-hazed journey he/she has been taken on over the course of the entire album.

The spellbound-like, trance-induced state of mind is abruptly brought to a halt at the end of the last track and the listener suddenly finds him-/herself left alone on an abandoned and icy-cold planetary star somewhere in the far outskirts of cosmos. An itching notion to press repeat and once more indulge in the warm, fuzzy sounds emanating from the glowing inner of Marijannah’s core is impossible to suppress – and you shouldn’t, really!”
