Today I've just inaugurated the World Flag Records' proper profile on Free Music Archive. Quite a few years ago we have started a CD-R label which occasioanlly releases an album with material related to Magic Carpathians Project. These are live recordings, side projects of ours, some field recordings we have taken while travelling extensively etc. Rarely we have enough opportunities and resource available to promote it widely so - dear friends, please excuse us if you didn't get it for review so far. FMA enables us to share most of our archives without all the troubles of traditional CD printing so we decided to transform World Flag Records into net label of sorts. The tracks I've uploaded today are very specific - recorded on the spot within one session of interpersonal sonic exchange of likeminded people who embarked on this spaceship together. Without much editiing and without any additional production we make it available and hope you'll enjoy. However, I must admit it is for brave, late-night-trippers-who-keep-their-ears-open-and-let-time -pass-by.

This is the title of Projekt Karpaty Magiczne / Magic Carpathians Project's newest album. In November 2010 we've got a phone call from Polish Greenpeace headquarters - they were asking whether we'd be interested in cooperation. The idea was simple yet captivating - to record a special album that would be a gift to many wonderful people who engaged in the campaign to protect one of the oldest European forests, Białowieża Forest (Puszcza Białowieska). Hence "the gift" got two meanings: literal (the album has never been available in commercial circuit) and metaphorical (while recording we were thinking with sincere gratefulness of people who got involved in campaigning and also how much inspiration we've been gaining from Nature through entire lifespan). This is why we mobilized the whole potential of our pop sensibilities, in the best meaning of the word - when I'm saying "pop" I mean all the tunes and melodies that made me cry or caused goosebumps on my skin. In other words, it might be the most easy listening Magic Carpathians Project's album to date and purposedly. We just wanted to offer the most pleasurable, enjoyable and heart-warming experience we could afford.
