+ "Külastus" released on 10" vinyl June 4th
+ Only Väljasõit Rohelisse UK Show - Brainlove Festival
+ Acoustic Festival Warmup Show Announced
+ Andrew Paul Regan Album Release Show Announced


Brainlove Records is proud to announce the signing of Valjasoit Roheliise (pronounced Val-Yah-Sweet Row-Hell-Ease, meaning "roadside picnic"), an Estonian four-piece from Tallinn.

Making dreamlike, hypnotic, atmospheric drones, doused in emerald green light and lost in thick smoke, the band caught the label's attention at Tallinn Music Week 2012, where they played alongside Napoleon IIIrd and Mat Riviere in a huge ex-soviet cinema called Söprus (trans: "friendship"). Their set was a highlight of the festival, and also saw the band invited to play in Moscow by Russia's premiere rock critic, Artem Troitsky.

The members of Väljasõit Rohelisse come from the disparate but interconnected worlds of music, art and fashion, giving them a audio-visual quality reminiscent of lo-fi legends The Velvet Underground, but with elements of shoegaze, dream-pop and dark mysticism.

Their debut EP "Külastus" was, amazingly, recorded in one take, with no overdubs and a single mic. It captures the band weaving their unique magic in their natural live habitat, and comes out on MP3 and limited 10" vinyl on June 4th in collaboration with their Estonain label, One Sense Music. The vinyl (ltd. to 300 copies) is available for pre-order at

Väljasõit Rohelisse will come to UK for their only UK live performance of 2012 at Brainlove Festival 2012, on May 26th.
