Music for the Deep Woods


Laura’s music can be dark and a bit scary in places but live she has a wonderfully fun approach to her music. She’s like an episode of Twin Peaks in female form.

-Aoife Barry (Nialler9 Blog)

I have been chasing Laura Sheeran to give me a release for Open for literally 3 years (beginning in my Net-Lab days). I heard her sing only once in person, for about 60 seconds, and I’ve been affected by it ever since.

Be it her solo work, which runs the spectrum from naively sexual and gentle (in a playing outside in the summer kind of way) to immensely dark and tortured (Trapped Under Ice opens with the lyrics ‘There’s panic in the atmosphere. My heart beats so fast, I cut through my tongue in fear…‘), or her contributions with Fovea Hex, one cannot help but be blown away by the sheer (no pun intended) emotional weight of her output -where she waves her fingers, or quivers her lip, beautiful music gushes forth in dischordant waves of distress and comfort.

And luckily for us, this release is no different. Featuring contributions from members of Fovea Hex and Nurse with Wound (we can’t believe it either!), plus some veterans of the Irish noise and outsider folk scenes, this is an all-too brief glimpse at amazing natural talent reaching upwards.

I met Polaroid Android in the CRK squat, Wroc?aw in 2008 while touring around with Tupolew (featuring members of Gestammelorchester as featured on OPN006 Primer 02), where he and the other residents cooked for and entertained us. Mid-conversation, he dragged me into his studio, turned up the bass-end and played me Polaroid Anroid, from start to finish. I was very very drunk on dodgy yellow Polish vodka and nodded my way through the whole thing, pretty assured that I was having a good time with Hubert, the friendliest, jolliest anti-fascist punk I’ve met. Groggy the next morning, we set off towards the next venue and somehow I found ‘Husbands’ (an early demo of M??owie) and ‘Definicje’ on my iPod. I listened to it over and over and over…

This album is for people who like Company Flow, Cannibal Ox, D-Styles, Public Enemy or even PIL. Highlights include Kocham Wielkiego Brata, Wolno?? S?owa and, my favourite, Mezowie; a track about domestic violence. I don’t know what it is about this tune, but, even though I can’t understand a word, I absolutely believes that she means it. And that’s dope.

8 tracks of dark-as-fuck hip-hop about nasty things in the world that need to be put right.


Because of the complexities of organising a release on 3 labels simultaneously, plus the added complexities of one of those labels being a free label and not forgetting Open Music’s wish to not negatively affect the possibility of Polaroid Android, Anteny Krzyku & Qulturap losing lots of money, OPN010 – Polaroid Android – Definicje will stay in the ‘Coming Soon’ for now. Show your appreciation for Polaroid Android now by leaving a comment and we’ll make a big song and dance when it drops!

I love John Cohen. His eponymous release on Net-Lab is awesome and this one is even better… I love his music so much, that I couldn’t think of a single thing to say about this release that didn’t sound massively biased (we’re in Dead Fader together) or just plain sycophantic. So instead, I pasted (below) a badly translated paragraph from a review by French musician and writer Stephane Obadia [aka Nudist with Laptop (Wrong Music) and Rob Steady (Net-Lab) – if you fancy your french, the full review is linked below.
