'Een mistval om het rumoer' is the third collection of Dutch poetry by Jan Kleefstra for publisher Aspekt. About the book (in Dutch):
Het wordt stiller. De zon is nog niet op. Het meer wacht op de vlucht die alles in beroering brengt. Wat spreekt, fluistert. Nachtkoude heerst over het mooiste moment van deze winterdag, waarin het zijn voor even in alles oplost en het sleutelwoord ingetogenheid is. Of zoals de Wulp murmelt: ‘ik hoop dat er nog een beetje wind komt, hoe anders raak ik los van dit uitgewoonde land’.
ISBN: 9789463381673, 68 pages, published March 2017, €12.95, order here: Uitgeverij Aspekt.

The 8th album by Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra is out now! It is called 'Dize' and it is released on cd by Midira Records, that also published Piiptsjilling's 'Moarntiids' in 2014. Dize is "the twin" of Dage, that was released on cassette, late last November by Low Point. Both records are descended from the same recording sessions. Just like Dage, Dize contains four tracks; very dark, very slow and pretty much restrained. We wouldn't know how to describe them otherwise... Dize can be ordered at the Midira shop.

February 17th Midira Records will release Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra's 8th album 'Dize' on cd. Dize is Dage's twin-album, recorded during the same studio sessions a while ago. Dize is up for pre-order at the Midira shop, It comes in a very limited release of only 180 copies (plus unlimited downloads off course). Midira also offers a special limited pre-order bundle including Piiptsjilling's very fine 4th cd-album 'Moarntiids', published in 2014 and sold out on our own Bandcamp! With Dize we complete the "D-thing trilogy" of Dage, Desimber and Dize, more or less.
Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra will do a short UK-tour in April, check our live dates for that.

Piiptsjilling rarely plays live, but when it does... December 3rd Piiptsjilling opened Matthias König's exhibition 'A road trip through Fr¥$lâN-N-N...n in one month' in the city of The Hague. We recorded the gig and thought it was such a nice recording that we also decided to publish it. It's called 'Kjeld' (Frisian for cold, because it was pretty cold in the venue) and it comes as a very, very limited self-released 3" CDr-thingy, just like Slieperswaar. Only 50 hand numbered copies!
You can order (and download) Kjeld over at our Bandcamp! Later this year there's more Piiptsjilling coming up. Prepare for the group's fifth studio-album, which will come as a very nicely designed special issue.
