007 – Wist Rec Mix – Exiting Music
We were so very pleased to be asked by the radio program Its Just Music Baby and the likeminded label Shimmering Moods to come up with a mix of music which influenced us. There are traces of the themes and sound fidelity in here which can be found throughout our records. Oddly, there appears to be a niggling hint of thematic closure in there for some reason but no serious need to worry. Music from Rhue, Clara Rockmore, Slowdive, Grouper, Hood and others.
Bonus obscurity note: The image is likely the oldest surviving photograph by Nicéphore Niépce, taken in the late 1820s.

001 – 1916 Oncoming
Is time slipping more than we here at the label pretend? Regardless, we would like to thank all of those who helped to maintain the co-op this year.
For the months ahead a scurrying of projects:
• A handsome jackdaw from the Sly & Unseen
• The worrying return of rural rhetoric from Depatterning after an unhealthy absence
• Our label’s first vinyl release by
the Tape Loop Orchestra
• A secret gift to our original homesteaders.
• Useful object for the recording the seasons with April Larson, Lost Trail and Ekin Fil
• Other projects long delayed should come to light.
