LIVE DATES

This weekend has some exciting gigs coming up:
Causa Sui is playing Desert Fest Berlin, Friday April 25th http://www.desertfest.de/
Papir is playing Copenhagen Psych Fest, Thursday April 24th http://copenhagenpsychfest.tictail.com/

In a few months, Causa Sui will return to Duna Jam. We can't give out any specifics into when and where, so if you're interested you have to get in touch thru http://www.dunajam.net/

"DUNAJAM is not a festival. Imagin a birthday party, that's how it works. Or something like a mix between a picnic and a pilgrimage, if you want to be invited send an e-mail to dunajam [AT] gmail.com The waiting list is quite long since this can't be done with more than 150 people so that's the limit, therefore be prepared to wait quite a bit before you will get an answer."

Causa Sui: Live at Freak Valley

Aloha everyone! Warmer weather just around the corner - meanwhile, here's some stuff to turn up that tropical vibe:

LIVE AT FREAK VALLEY
April 7th will see the release of Causa Sui: Live at Freak Valley! This full 90 minute Causa Sui set comes hot of the heels of last years acclaimed studio effort Euporie Tide, and is a condensed manifestation of the low-end heavy side of the band. This show presents the band in elemental quartet mode and features a wide palette of cuts from the entire catalog. From the band's signature cut ”El Paraiso” from their 2005 debut, through revamps of the more translucent Summer Sessions material, straight up to virgin jams, fresh from the rehearsal room.

This set serves as a great introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the bands distinctive take on instrumental psychedelic rock. And for the fans it's simply a must-have.

Mixed and mastered by Jonas Munk from multitrack recordings this set sounds as warm as crisp as any of the albums.

PREORDERS
Preorders from El Paraiso includes a Freak Valley patch for the first 50 orders - every preorder from our shop gets an awesome limited A3 sized poster - plus random postcards, stickers, etc.

AMOR FATI FULL ALBUM STREAM
Jakob Skøtt: Amor Fati LP is officially out next week - in the meantime, you can listen to the whole album until the official release thru:

Jakob Skøtt: Amor Fati LP + Causa Sui T-shirt

Jakob Skøtt: Amor Fati LP SHIPS MARCH 17TH


Limited to 500 LPs with download card + additional extras when ordering thru this site.

http://elparaisorecords.com/releases/amor-fati

Causa Sui drummer Jakob Skøtt returns with his 2nd full length in his own name. Taking the leap from his debut Doppler’s introvert kosmische synthesizer dronescapes diving into a full blown mad scientist one-band mode, Jakob straps on a wide array of heavy percussive modes to fuel his vivid utopia of analogue synths and drums. It’s one man’s vision as crazed and intoxicated as it is soothing and compelling, borrowing as many clues from afro-beat, latin-grooves and new age-ambience as it does from the booming legacy of krautrock. The proceedings are distanced from both coolness and kitsch, and a refreshing break from any standards.

CAUSA SUI T-SHIRT

New Causa Sui: Euporie Tide T-shirts only available thru our mailorder + Causa Sui live shows. "What shows? You never play anywhere!" Guess again - We'll play DESERT FEST BERLIN as well as DUNA JAM in 2014. If you can't make it we got a remedy for that also: in April we'll release our first ever live record Live at Freak Valley on 2 LP / 2 CD from that special show in a damp valley in Germany last year. Produced by Jonas Munk, as crisp sounding as any of the records.

Shirts are organic fairtrade cotton, silkscreened non-toxic print. First run of 100, so don't snooze.

We still got stickers - 13 for each order + oversized Impetus & Catalogue cards - so be quick and place a pre-order to get some extra goodies. We pack everything with care in double sided cardboard boxes.

Papir IIII extras

The only stimulus package you need - when ordering from this site: Papir IIII LP + 13 stickers + Impetus card + Catalogue card:

PAPIR IIII

Aloha!

We’ve been busy and got tons of tales to tell, so straight on to it:

PAPIR release new album in less than a month - pre-orders up now at:

http://elparaisorecords.com/releases/papir-IIII

Papir has the unique ability to transform heavy, psychedelic music into something fresh. Sure, Papir knows their kraut- and progrock history, but unlike the majority of bands in the present day psych-rock scene they venture far beyond mere pastiche. By now the bands concerts have become awe-inducing experiences, earning them slots at major European festivals including Roskilde (2012), and Roadburn (2014).

It's stunning to witness how Papir pull numerous influences together with natural ease in these three lengthy excursions. It sounds inspired.

Not only is Papir IIII heavier than previous their efforts, it seems more lush and atmospheric as well. It is the sound of a band fulfilling its potential. Onwards and upwards.

But don’t just take out word for it - check out the awe-introducing force of the opening track Papir.IIII.I:

We’re amazed to bring you this centerpiece exactly one year since the revered III was release - the album that really put Papir on the map. We had to reprint it a few months later, so grab that while you’re at it: http://elparaisorecords.com/releases/papir-III

Papir IIII is available as LP including mp3 download card - packed in a heavy duty recycled sleeve. Every order of this album from the El Paraiso shop gets a sheet of limited El Paraiso stickers! As well as an oversized heavy duty catalogue card. All our orders are packed in sturdy double sided cardboard boxes.

The following months will bring a new solo album by Jakob Skøtt - Taking the leap from his debut Doppler’s introvert kosmische synthesizer dronescapes diving into a full blown mad scientist one-band mode, Jakob straps on a wide array of heavy percussive modes to fuel his vivid utopia of analogue synths and drums. It’s one man’s vision as crazed and wiggied as it is soothing and compelling.

Also to come this spring is Causa Sui: Live at Freak Valley! Full 90 minute set produced by Causa Sui’s Jonas Munk, this one will have your eyes and ears popping out. We’re thrilled to finally get a live record out, and that summer show at midnight in a damp valley in Germany simply had everything click.

More on these new releases in a little while! Meanwhile, turn up the heat, grab a cold one, crank it up and get that El Paraiso-vibe going!

Best,
Team El Paraiso

Causa Sui and Papir reprints!

Euporie Tide track-by-track

Causa Sui's Jonas and Jakob wrote an in-depth walk-thru of each track on Euporie Tide for Canadas finest 'zine Textura.

Textura also did an awesome review:

"...There's so much to like about the release. For starters, the music, regardless of whether post-editing was done or not, sounds live—and brilliantly live at that, especially when Euporie Tide captures the unit in full flight operating at the peak of its ability. The album's track sequencing works exceptionally well (...) Transitions between episodes are executed so seamlessly, the effect is stunning, and the listener comes away from the track, like the album in general, in awe. It's an incredible collection by an incredible band..."

Causa Sui: The Juice video

ROADBURN premeres yet another one of our videos!

"Danish psych-rock at it’s finest. Fleeting glimpses of acid rock ghosts flicker by the windows of the train. You hurtle towards the center of the sun. It’s getting warm now, very warm. Guitar strings melting, drumheads spontaneously catching fire, solar winds roaring through your mind… Then… Nebulous gas clouds obscure the sun in a technicolour haze. The temperature is cooling. Focus begins to soften, shapes become amorphous, everything blurs together. One long hallucination spiraling into the night sky."
