Standard weight black vinyl. Eavesdropping on a lost conversation or sifting through ancient postcards, remnants or rather fragments of a life worth living beside other human beings. Adam Bad√≠ Donoval's debut 'Sometimes Life Is Hard And So We Should Help Each Other' has an uncanny ability to evoke warmth and memory, open dialogues that recreate a timeless thread characterized by unearthly compositions that combine field recordings, electronic loops and perpetual melodies. Based in Bratislava, Adam Bad√≠ Donoval, originally released the album on cassette format on The Trilogy Tapes (2022). Now remastered for vinyl and with additional artwork it fully presents the composer's emotionally resonant sound sculptures calling upon a vast collection of samples and recorded snippets coming from an incredible cast of collaborators: Kepla (Chinese horn and cello), John Sampson and Ondrej Zajac (field recordings), Adela Mede and Martyna Basta (voice), Tom√°s Niesner (guitar) and Andreas Dzialocha (bass). Masterfully arranged by Donoval, shreds of sound transform into pure melancholy to construct a peculiarly ethereal oeuvre that feels grounded, real and familiar.
