Dhafer Youssef's upcoming new album [MOVLP1807] is a great opportunity to release one of his best older albums. Birds Requiem is a very personal recording of the Tunesian Oud player and can be posed as music for an imaginative movie.
After a rollercoaster of success with their unique blend of pop, jazz and bossa nova the band Room Eleven broke up. Luckily for us they've just started touring again and 10 years later their debut album Six White Russians and A Pink Pussycat is now available for the first time on vinyl in a fittingly pink colour.
Bands will always reappear and dissappear, but a few will always stay around. The Bintangs had several changes in their line-up throughout history but have been around since 1961. Glad to say we have managed to reissue Travelling In The U.S.A. on limited grey vinyl, including one of their same named greatest hits!

Have a nice weekend,
The MOV crew

The D.O.C., short for Department of Correction, is a highly-skilled battle rhymer from Dallas, USA. In addition to his solo career, he was a member of the hip hop group Fila Fresh Crew and later collaborated with gangsta rap group N.W.A where he co-wrote many of their releases. After Fila Fresh Crew split up in 1988, The D.O.C. went on to pursue a successful solo career.
The album Travelling in the U.S.A., the follow up to Blues On The Ceiling, saw the Bintangs continue their sound. The album includes the three singles "Ridin' On The L&N", "Travelling In The U.S.A" and "He Didn't Wanna Go Home", which all achieved success in the Dutch Single Top 100.
In 2013 Dhafer Youssef released his album Birds Requiem. This album is a very personal recording that has been prepared at a turning point of the artist's life. The album is structured around the Birds Requiem suite ("Birds Canticum", "Fuga Hirundinum", "Archaic Feathers" and "Whirling Birds Ceremony") and can be posed as music for an imaginative movie.
