Releases:
Fritz Welch - a desire to push forward without gaining access to anything RDLP07

Mutant vocals crash alongside sobering dada sentiments on this new LP by Fritz Welch (Peeesseye, FvRTvR, Ki, Lambs Gamble, Asparagus Piss Rain Drop, Ego Depletion, etc). Fritz presents a ping pong vocal dance that transforms into a twisted exchange of rhythms and melody. A recorded journey into the interior of Fritz’ brain hole. Unrelenting and beautiful in its execution across both sides, you’ll be gasping for air by the end of it all.

available in a pressing of 300 copies. Green vinyl packaged in hand numbered, offset neon green covers designed by Reuben Lorch-Miller. Mastered by Sebastian Lexer.

Dean Spunt - EE Head RDLP06

On “EE HEAD” Dean Spunt (No Age, Wives, C.R.A.S.H.) presents a musique concrete dish served in four parts. The ingredients for this record consist of a pre recorded palette of samples that are anchored by the occasional pounding kick drum and microphone feedback. Using these parameters, Dean gently weaves a through line across four separate (but eerily familiar) tracks by employing a motion sensor to trigger the samples at random. The themes begin to emerge and reverberate out across side A and B like heavily toasted versions of an original song that has been lost or buried by time.

*The inspiration for this record came from an initial performance of this piece at Gordon Robichaux Gallery (NY), September 16th, 2017

Available in a pressing of 250 copies. Mastered by Scott Cornish

Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson - I Say to You RDLP04

Originally released as an extremely limited cassette in June 2014, this fantastic material is finally making its debut on vinyl.

Not to be missed.
