We’ve another release lined up hot on the heels of the recent album from label owner Harry Towell as Spheruleus. Next up we welcome Japanese duo Colbets with a collection of mid-length Ambient drones concocted using guitar and synthesizer. Colbets is Saitoh Tomohiro and Kari Takemoto and their work will appeal to fans of Darkroom, Twine and their compatriot Shaula. You can listen to a preview of the album by using the Soundcloud player below or keep a check on our Facebook page to preview the packaging when we share it.
Whitelabrecs low-run releases will be made available suddenly without official release dates, meaning they’re likely to sell out fast. The best way to keep informed is to join our mailing list which can be located through our website menu.
“Colbets is a duo from Tokyo, Japan consisting of Saitoh Tomohiro and Kari Takemoto. They have previously released music on labels such as Twice Removed, Twisted Treeline, U-Cover and Vent in a project that began in 2011.
Saitoh also records solo electronic material as Shreber Harber Mole Flying Wheel whilst Kari is a guitarist; together they produce dense and hazy linear drones.
Come To The Surface was composed as the soundtrack to an imaginary nostalgic movie, designed to evoke thoughts of flickering, grainy film imagery. The entire album is an immersive listen from start to finish, designed with Brian Eno’s original description of Ambient music in mind: to be neither foreground nor background. There is a weight and power to the contemplative sound palette that will pull you into thoughts of nostalgia as you try to recall abandoned memories to the surface of your mind.“
