Fossil Aerorol Mining Project The Unlistening Place // CD
Fossil Aerosol Mining Project are an enigmatic lot, comprised of sonic archeologists residing the American Midwest. Their work spans several decades and is almost always in flux through the variable states of contextual re-investigation and technological degradation. Aesthetically, FAMP align with the post-industrial research of :zoviet*france:, Cranioclast and Robert Turman.

Ekin Fil Ghosts Inside // LP / Digital
Ekin Fil is the acclaimed drone-pop chanteuse working with the sparest of materials in her ethereal, shoegaze deconstructions. Ghosts Inside stands as her most arresting recordings to date, written during a period of personal despair with an oblique poetry of sadness cascading through the songs. It's an introspective sound, completely turned in on itself and tuning out the socio-political tumult of her native home in Istanbul.

Relay For Death Natural Incapacity // 2CD / Digital
We have the long awaited epic noise construct Natural Incapacity from the twin sisters Rachal and Roxann Spikula, who operated under the moniker Relay For Death. The full composition is an unbroken piece that is over two hours long; and the download of this version will only be available for purchase with the phyiscal release. This physical version comes in an edition of 150 copies with hand-corroded & screen printed steel plates as the cover artwork.

Jim Haynes Throttle & Calibration // Cassette / Digital
Throttle & Callibration by Jim Haynes smolders with corroded and compressed recordings made during the Active Crossover project in Estonia. A previous digital-only version was made available earlier this year from Cronica, but this cassette has nearly 25 minutes more material that the previous iteration.

Francisco Meirino Surrender, Render, End // CD / Digital
Surrender, Render, End is an electro-acoustic dialectic, unremittingly engaged in a pugilist conflict between art and accident. The Swiss noise-composer Francisco Meirino began working on the skeleton for this piece in 2014 as a multi-channel, modular synth patch, which has been in an ongoing state of modification through public diffusions and private rumination.

Distributors and retail outlets are welcome to contact the agency if interested in directly buying from the Agency; and a full list of our current distributors can be found here.

We highly recommend that customers outside the North America make their purchases from these distributors, as the shipping costs have gone up dramatically for first class and priority to cross the border of the United States. In 2016, the rate increase was on average 21%. We cannot incur losses for this increase, and unfortunately this gets passed onto our beloved customers. If the shipping calculator through Paypal (which has always been a very blunt tool) over charges you, we will refund the difference upon calculating the exact price. If the shipping calculator under represents the cost, we may ask for an addition charge to cover the shipping. We do apologize; and again, we highly recommend you contacting any of our distributors to inquire about our products.

Digital distribution is also available through Bandcamp, iTunes, Midheaven, Boomkat, and emusic, amongst other purveyors of the MP3.

The Helen Scarsdale Agency occasionally will send out e-mail announcements of performances, events, and publications related to the Agency. If you would like to received these announcements, please fill out the form below. This information will not be shared with any other organizations.
