"Unleash" is the highly anticipated, second KOSTADIS solo album, almost 10 years after his debut release "San Aravas". While the first one was a loose mid-summer afternoon soundtrack of (mostly) acoustic experimental easy listening and his multi-instrumentalism abilities have shredded via different bands like Lost Bodies, Wham Jah + Acid Baby Jesus, "Unleash" shares an entirely focused approach, definite and mature. Spine-chilling soundscapes created by modular electronics, DIY junk contact mics and ribbon devices break the chains off the beast, which has been suffocating in low-light suburbia and introversion. The voice is free. Self is free. Barking at the right tree.

DIGITAL ‘ALBUM’ MANIFESTO:
Phase! doesn’t support digital sales. Every single artist’s hard work has been represented by a physical release, like it should. Bandcamp doesn’t allow the “Enable / Disable Download” checkbox anymore, that’s why we’ve priced every release with a ridiculous amount of hard-earned money so that no one downloads it. It’s up there for all of you to listen to and we’re pretty sure there are lots of ways to make it yours if you want to –with very minimum digital and analog hacking skills– but the music up there, on the Phase! Bandcamp page, is just a virtual reference. Nothing more. If you want to support the artists, please buy music (digital also, if you insist, some do that and we’re totally fine with it) from their Bandcamp pages. If you want to support the label, please buy the old-fashioned, good-looking physical goods and you won’t regret it.
