The duo of Mark T. Smith (Explosions In The Sky) and Matthew Cooper (Eluvium) have come back quickly and unexpectedly with a follow-up EP to their widely acclaimed recent album, Maze of Woods. The Blanket Waves EP features two side-long tracks that weave together mechanical rhythms, vocal samples, and indeterminate instrumentation into the occasionally noisy ambiance that has quickly become their hallmark. This limited edition vinyl-only release is available for pre-order now, and while supplies last you can snatch the special clear w/ black smoke colored vinyl variant!
Maserati are back! And when we say back, we mean wayyy back, circa 1980! Their new album, Rehumanizer, forges Krautrock, classic rock, and vintage synth meditations into one massive, motorik vehicle. They produced and recorded this one entirely in their own studio, and have fully embraced technology as a songwriting tool. It's that signatire marriage of man and machine that Maserati have turned into a unique art. The cover art is also supremely bitchin'. While supplies last we have a super cool red & orange sunburst colored vinyl that fittingly looks like an exploding sun. Buy up or burn out!
Australia's preeminent (and probably only) post-punk neo-industrial doom-dirge trio have retuened after what seems like an eternity! Their new album, the aptly-named Severe, bears little resemlabnce to their previous work, and sounds like nothing else happening in music right now. Bold words for a bold band who have made their boldest album yet! Limited edition colored vinyl is available while supplies last, along with standard black vinyl, and the ever-convenient Compact Disc™ format. You can also pre-order lossless 24-bit WAV files via our Bandcamp store!
The unstoppable beat machine that is Prefuse 73 has already stunned critics and fans with an onslaught of brilliant releases this year, including his triumphant comeback album, Rivington Não Rio, which Pitchfork called "his best work in well over a decade." Well, he has now followed that up with an equally amazing new EP, Every Color of Darkness. This concludes the triptych that began with Forsyth Gardens and Rivington, and it seems as though he may have saved the best for last. The vinyl format is limited edition, so jump on that before it becomes as scarce as Forsyth Gardens!
Last year, we released the new album by the inimitable German composer, Hauschka, to much acclaim and fanfare. The recording sessions for that album, Abandoned City, were an embarrassment of riches. There were so many brilliant songs that didn't end up on the album, many of which we have now compiled on a limited-edition vinyl-only release called A NDO C Y. In addition to the five Abandoned City outtakes, we've commissioned sterling remixes from Eluvium, and Devendra Banhart. As if that weren't enough, we've also included a very special bonus digital live album, featuring two stunning 20-minute tracks recorded live in Japan. This vinyl release is limited to 1,000 copies, pressed onto 100% virgin black vinyl and housed in a beautifully designed full-color jacket.
