We proudly announce our next release:
TRISTAN DA CUNHA is a post rock/slowcore duo from Pavia, Italy formed by Francesco Vara and Luca Scotti on August 2016. Francesco releases music with his drone/ambient project ALTAJ as well. Luca Scotti is the current drummer of the kraut/free jazz ensemble INTERSTELLAR EXPERIENCE.

Tristan da Cunha is an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, one of the remotest inhabitated islands of the world. Every song of the EP is inspired by the suggestions of this island. On “Soçobrar”, using only guitar and drums, the two musicians manage to build huge atmospheres out of almost nothing. From mellow and fragile, almost reluctant interludes, they play their way to harsh, repetitive loudness – steadily incorporating harmonies into their composition.
The EP was produced, recorded and mixed by Paolo Monti, man behind Italian
drone/ambient project THE STAR PILLOW.

Full stream and review from The New Noise:




We are proud to release the preorder for one of our upcoming releases:

Split 12″ / 180g black vinyl / limited to 100 copies
Artwork with photographs by a death cinematic
Aeronaut tracks mastered by James Plotkin
Swamp Flower Rhyme track mastered by Role/Die Tonmeisterei


Both sides of the 12″ include banjo, the traditional instrument that has it’s roots in the American Folk music history. The photograph on the album cover was made by A Death Cinematic and shows a run-down house from the rust belt. Both these facts try to build the slight historical and critical approach of the release, trying to reflect on social, economical and political conditions that once existed and therefore, how they might have had an impact on the current situation of world-wide crisis.

On February 20, 12 years ago, Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide, leaving his body of work and those few last words behind.

On February 20, 108 years ago, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti published “The Futurist Manifesto” – capturing the mindset of an era blindly believing in industrial development to bring peace and wealth to everybody. It has instead brought horrible destruction and suffering.

perverts in white shirts / power to the sheeple / CRB012 official release date.



So this is our final post for this year, we are looking forward to what the coming 365 days have ready for us. There are already a couple of releases and collaborations planned that are going to be awesome. You will hear some new stuff from Euphrasia, Zwischenwelt and Swamp Flower Rhyme and hopefully many more.

One release we are really happy with is already up for preordering, the debut LP of perverts in white shirts:…/perverts-in-white-shirts-po…

There are as well a few shows we will probably do, keep your eyes open.
We’re not expecting 2017 to be easier for small labels like us, but it was never about making big money. It is about dedication and passion, giving experimental and non-mainstream musicians a chance to spread their work and words. All of it would never be possible without the ongoing support from the people around us; thanks to all of you who have helped us with setting up shows, doing artwork and taking pictures, telling others about our work, buying records or just having a conversation with us. It is deeply cherished.


For closing this post, we would like to share our own favourite records of this year with you: Matthias really loved Body Sculpture’s debut “A Body turns to Eden”, released on posh isolation. Dave nominates the new Ulver soundtrack to Justin Oakey’s “Riverhead” – released on House of Mythology – as his favourite record of the year. All great bands and even greater labels to check out.

that’s it, thanks for your support.
much love
