(26-06-2014] Space Siren - if you Scream Like That your Monkey Won't Come
Hearing a new release for the first time is always special, especially when it's the new album of Space Siren. Last week we first saw the freshly pressed vinyl during their release party in Amsterdam. A night we won't easily forget, with support from The Ex, Fendika and Slow Worries in a very very crowded OT301.

But anyway, there is a new Space Siren LP. It's called 'If You Scream Like That, Your Monkey Won't Come'. And it's brilliant. More than ever, the band drives their noiserock tsunami into hitherto unknown territories; continuously developing the palette of sound. There's a limited vinyl and CD release, and the album is streaming on a myriad of digital platforms.

(12-05-2014] WOLVON EP release show
June 04 - OT301, Amsterdam
june 06 - Gym, Groningen

Groningen noiserock trio WOLVON present the follow-up of their 2013 debut “folds”. The new EP is called “bother”, is released on vinyl and features four blistering new songs.

NOUVEAU VELO is currently finalizing their new release and we have high expectations of it, considering last year's brilliant “daze” EP and the new songs they've been playing in recent gigs. Expect more jangly guitar-songs with Kiwi-pop sensibilities.

Post-Hardcore/punk trio TIJGER SALTO recently released their 2nd EP, aptly titled “EP #2”. It was released on cassette by Geertruida, together with their first EP.

[17-04-2014] The Fire Harvest / Reiziger 7"

Saturday april 19th it's Record Store Day, an international event dedicated to record stores, during which record store-employees, musicians and vinyl-enthusiasts flock together. This year Subroutine is not only joining in the various festivities, but also releasing a limited split 7" of The Fire Harvest (NL) and Reiziger (BE). This weekend both bands will travel across the country, playing several gigs and instores to promote their release. On Sunday they're joined by Amber Arcades, At Townes' Trailer and April DJs in the upstairs Spiegelbar of Tivoli (Utrecht) for the release party of the single. The tour starts on Friday with a show at Lepel Concerts in Groningen.

A temporary house swap between band members Geert (BE) and Gerben (NL) resulted in this cross-border collaboration. By digging into each other's record collections they found out that they have a lot in common. They both play in bands that liked to continue the DIY tradition of the vinyl split single. The result is a limited 7" single with new songs from both bands, wrapped in a 100% unique and 100% recycled sleeve. There'll be a release-tour in the Netherlands and Belgium. The single is released on Record Store Day (April 19) and will be distributed by Subroutine Records (NL) and Birch&Broom Records (BE).

[12-01-2014] The Sound Of Young Holland II

This week we're hosting the 6th edition of our annual independent showcase event in Groningen. What once started as a DIY initiative to provide (primarily Dutch) bands with a venue to perform in the larger context of the Eurosonic weekend, grew into a yearly tradition, where we invite everyone to our spiritual hometown (and label-birthplace) Groningen. The festival has been known as SR020 (2009), Subroutine Connects (2010) or Subroutine Cares (2011). Last year we decided to 'appropriate' the legendary Postcard Records (/Motown) motto for our showcase event.

Together with Lepel Concerts we've invited 15 acts to perform this year. The venues are O'ceallaigh Irish pub and Café Kult, as usual. Entrance is free, no wristband needed. Click here for all information on line-up, venues, timetables, maps etcetera.

[11-01-2014] Apneu - Hard Feelings

A happy 2014 to all! Today we release the new album of Amsterdam lo-fi slacker-heartthrobs Apneu. 'Hard Feelings' features 11 songs and clocks just under 20 minutes. You do the math. We reckon it'll give you just enough positive impulses to gloriously ignore your New Year's resolutions. Which is convenient, because this Wednesday they present the album in their hometown. Order it >> here or stream it a most digital platforms.

Some early reviews:
Under the Radar: "Apneu is a group from Amsterdam with classic pop in their veins and garage grit under their fingernails."
Kicking the Habit: "In twenty minutes, Apneu confidently runs through eleven songs that are as irresistable as they are nonchalant.." [Triple AAA]
3voor12: “Hard Feelings provides the soundtrack to dance away your insomnia." [Album of the Week]
Luifabriek: "...slackers playing simple but catchy riffs that stick in your brain for eternity"

Apneu - Katadreuffe releaseparty



[21-11-2013] Katadreuffe

Nieuw Katadreuffe album Malconfort uit in december
Narrominded en Subroutine brengen samen LP uit


Het muziekjaar 2013 is bijna voorbij, maar niet voordat twee Nederlandse undergroundlabels de handen ineen slaan met een opvallende samenwerking. Op 10 december verschijnt het nieuwe album Malconfort van de Amsterdamse band Katadreuffe als gezamenlijke release bij Narrominded en Subroutine.

Katadreuffe is al enkele jaren een vaste, maar grillige waarde in de Nederlandse underground. Je kunt ze in hokjes als post-hardcore, shoegaze, noiserock of avantgarde duwen, maar wie goed luistert, hoort dat Katadreuffe al die genres ontstijgt. Malconfort staat vol schitterende nummers met vlijmscherpe gitaarlijnen, complexe ritmes en intrigerende teksten.

Malconfort (LP / digitaal) van Katadreuffe verschijnt op dinsdag 10 december 2013 en wordt op woensdag 8 januari 2014 gepresenteerd in de OT301 in Amsterdam. Line-up: Katadreuffe, Apneu, Hunter Complex & WOLVON

Een preview van het album is hier te streamen.

[28-05-2013] My Friend Television - Joe

Musician/cartoonist Ricky van Duuren is one of the driving and constant forces in almost three decades of the Groningen music scene and played in (in)famous bands like De Boegies, The Moonlizards and
De Straaljagers.

In the last years Van Duuren settled on the moniker My Friend Television, slowly but steadily building on an impressive array of quiet, introvert home recorded songs, heavily contrasting with the music from his early career.

In 2012 Van Duuren took to Schenk Studio in Amsterdam to record a debut 10” EP called ‘Joe’. Now backed by Merijn Jansen, Frank Hiep and Barbara Stok, My Friend Television is a band and their EP ‘Joe’ will be released by Subroutine Records on june 2nd (15:00!) @ de pudding. First single ‘Your Fool’ is a duet with Brenda Bosma (Spilt Milk), who occasionally joins the band on stage.

[24-09-2012] Subroutine catalog on Bandcamp
We've recently spend some time in our archives and decided to upload [abd/or link] our entire catalog to one bandcamp account, starting from December 2005 with a 3" cd of awkward i until the recent WOLVON / NeonRainbows split 7".

Now you can find EVERYTHING -including some promos and samplers- in one place. Have fun.
>> subroutinerecords.bandcamp.com

quote kicking the habit: "Het begon allemaal eind 2005 met een eerste bescheiden release: de False Starts In Lo-Fi-EP van awkward i. Sindsdien is Subroutine Records uitgegroeid tot een van de mooiste kleine labels van het land, van wie iedere release op zijn minst de moeite waard is om te checken. 

Veel goede bands met een shoegazend of lo-fi-geluid konden terecht bij de door twee man gerunde platenmaatschappij, met als gevolg goede platen van bijvoorbeeld AC Berkheimer, The Sugarettes, We Swim You Jump, gelegenheidsband The Very Sexuals en Vox von Braun.

Albums die met de gehele catalogus van Subroutine nu op Bandcamp zijn te beluisteren, inclusief zeldzamere singles, EP's en compilaties. Van die eerste releases van awkward i, Fuck the Writer en Feverdream tot aan recenter werk van Space Siren, The Wooden Constructions, S In Assasins, Wolvon en Rats on Rafts - The Moon Is Big verscheen eerst op Subroutine"

De Subroutiners kunnen het wel goed vinden met de lui van Lepel Concerts en dat heeft al voor meerdere fijne samenwerkingen gezorgd. Zo waren ze al meerdere keren curator op elkaars avonden, en tijdens Eurosonic is het inmiddels ook al Subroutine & Lepel Care. Dat waren altijd drukbezochte, gezellige avonden.

Zaterdag 4 augustus verzorgen Subroutine en Lepel
een Zomercafé in Vera met optredens van:

- The Sugarettes
- AC Berkheimer
- Accadians

"met Subroutine en Lepel weet je dat het goed zit! Leuke mensen, genoeg bier en ik durf het jullie te beloven: ook toffe bands uit de toplaag van de Nederlandse underground muziekscene! " (MARINKE)

[07-05-2012] Wooden Constructions
After keeping the Dutch alternative music scene’s collective eyebrows raised for quite a while with their energetic live act, Amsterdam based Wooden Constructions decided to dive head first into the dark hole of obscurity to record debut album People Now People. For two years nobody heard anything from them. Now they’re back. All grown up and more terrifying than ever. This is maniacal, gloomy music accompanied by strange and singular stories.
People Now People will be released on May 11th.
