Boomruin/BMRN – ‘Monochrome’ C41 $6
Originally released in 2012 as a digital download, the moving electronic sounds and heavy beats of Monochrome has been re-conceptualized into a physical format. The album brings forward fresh sounding beats that progress the sounds of visual electronics and psychedelic samples.

Movie style moments to comedy and jazzed slang, the album flows in a genuine manner with retro appeal.

Heart Heart Julia featuring Blood Blood – ‘Lost Moments’ C62 $6
Lost Moments features Justin Bieler and George Dutton teaming up with Blood Blood in an unusual experiment. Bridging spoken word stories about situational memories and drone pieces with fuzzy distortion and broken fragments from archived recordings, Lost Moments represents the torture of being the one left behind. Searching for a way forward when everything appears dead, recognizing that with each break a new birth can be born. The album explores this concept through two short stories and over 60 minutes of archived sounds from a 2009 recording session Justin had with Seamus Williams, and new meanderings of George Dutton and the absorbed synth breaks of Blood Blood. Brief moments we catch a glimpse of O.Wyatt’s honest critique of what music is. Limited to 23 rare turquoise cassettes with yellow reels.
