Ekin Fil Maps // LP / Digital
Our fourth production with Ekin, Maps quietly continues her complex dream-pop compositions, following her very well received Ghosts Inside LP as well as the acclaimed soundtrack to Inflame. The saddest songs of The Durutti Column excised of rhythm and those few plunges into sorrow by Harold Budd make for apt comparisons to Maps, in addition to the drone-on classics of Grouper, Slowdive, and Sarah Davachi.
Fosil Sangiran Pasar Fosil // Cassette / Digital
Fosil Sangiran Khayal Kuno // Cassette / Digital
The pseudonym for Seattle polymath Matt Shoemaker (1974-2017). The two recordings that have been uncovered from his archives under this moniker were recorded during a lengthy sabbatical in Java, Indonesia between 2012 and 2013. Though these works both operate very clearly within Shoemaker's aesthetic, he choose to operate under this moniker to provide a clarifying distance from what he believed to be his commonplace birth name. Sangiran refers to the UNESCO world heritage site in Indonesia where numerous archeological discoveries have been made providing insight into the understanding of early human development. It's an apt metaphor to his churning arrays of psychotropic sound design, which give the allusion of being distressed from aeons of jungle rot.
Fossil Aerosol Mining Project August 53rd // LP / Digital
Continuing their post-industrial dialectics through their "songs of enhanced decay and faked resurrection," the Fossil Aerosol Mining Project has been quietly producing such works since the '80s with a uniform brilliance in the exquisite reconstruction of exhumed cassette tapes and moldering 35mm film stock. August 53rd harbors the rich enigmas of distressed sound collages found in the work of likeminded artists such as Philip Jeck, Felicia Atkinson, and of course Fossil Aerosol's occasional collaborators :zoviet*france:.
Stelzer/Murray Connector // Cassette / Digital
Stelzer/Murray is the duo of Brendan Murray and Howard Stelzer, two stalwarts of the Boston noise / experimental scene over the past two decades. Through destroyed tape and long-view compositional strategies, the two manifest an irradiated, almost Kirlian glow through Connector's slow accretions and erosions amidst the soaring crescendos of compacted tone and vacant shadows of mechanical thrum.
