Kaneel: What You Hear Is What You Deserve (2014)

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

__ 701412 – What you hear is what you deserve

After years of hiatus, self-flagellation, “post-parenting” questioning and finally, a long period of artistic persona reshaping.

I wanted to kick back with some very important message:
– Your selfie matters.
– The food you eat matters.
– The music you’re listening to matters.
– The movie you’re watching matters.

And I came up to this conclusion:
– You are beautiful.
– You are amazing.
– I love your cute face.
– I want to follow you.
– I want to hug you.

And then, it felt almost logical to me that WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT YOU DESERVE.

This album is probably about you.
It could be about me but I decided that I had enough with “me” and it was time to talk a bit about you.

Or probably it’s because I definitely deserved all the things I’ve heard.

New Music Genres

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

TPOLM factory has been hard at work conceiving new formats of sonic entertainment that should soon be explored in dodgy music scene venues all around you in a few years. The difficult decision was ofcourse between the herring and the moomin. Since we are so generous we share some of the examples that are 9006 years ahead of the avantgarde music genres you listen today:
– moominhidecore, for the shy souls
– herringcore, for the aquatic restless
– moominjazzcore, for the pervertophiles in us all
– jazzstep, natural evolution of dubstep tongue video man
– soulful leathercore loungewave, retro
– emostep, kaneels favorite secret
– yodeltech, technological goat lovers music
– polkahouse, already under construction
