Whitelabrecs Box Set

We’re busy working behind the scenes on our next release which is imminent, however we’ve had the idea for a long time of putting together a Box Set of our first 20 releases so that there is at least some way of people new to the label being able to get a copy of our many sold out/out of print items.

We’ve made it clear that we won’t re-press any albums as we want to keep things small and collectable but for those looking to either preserve the collection or play ‘catch-up’ if they’ve only recently discovered us we think it’d be cool to make things available as a box set.

The package itself is simple and ‘DIY‘, very much like each of the CDr releases we put out with a card board box being the perfect size to comfortably house the 20 discs. The box will be hand-stamped in an ink colour of your choosing and the vinyl-style CDrs will be contained with a polaroid of the cover artwork and inside card sleeves. Again, you can choose the colour of the sleeves.
You’ll be contacted following your purchase and we’ll consult on your options and then we’ll order the materials, burn the discs and deliver to you securely!

Out now! WLR012 Colbets – Come To The Surface

We’ve just moved house and we’re already up online and ready to crack on releasing some of the wonderful demos that are building up.

Next up we welcome a duo from Japan called Colbets, who some may be familiar with their recent work on now defunct Australian label Twice Removed. ‘Come To The Surface’ is a set of 5 mid-length synth and guitar led Ambient drones that will appeal to fans of Darkroom, Twine and Colbets’ compatriot Shaula. It’s available now on Whitelabrecs in a very low run of just 50 CDrs.

We released the album to our mailing-list subscribers last weekend and most copies have sold – there are just a few left however at time of writing. To find out more or to secure your copy, you can click the link below or on the image above to listen. To avoid missing out on future releases, you can join our mailing list HERE

Press release
“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.
