Whitelabrecs Box Set Volume 2

We’ve managed another 20 releases since our last box set, so we thought we’d prepare ‘volume 2’ following our last set which covered releases 1-20.
This new box set starts at re-issuing a ‘whitelabel vinyl’ effect version of our Whitelabsounds compilation and includes all catalog numbers until WLR040, which is Daliah’s Holy Mountain.

Also included are some out of print items, from artists such as Sven Laux, Steve Pacheco, The Prairie Lines and Slow Heart Music.

We’re committed not to 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 you’ve only recently discovered us, we think it’d be nice 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 boxes are 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!

Best of 2017: Covarino

Our ‘best of 2017’ feature continues as we chat to Francesco Covarino, one half of Covarino/Incorvaia who released ‘Granada’ with us in the summer. There are still a few copies of this album so scroll to the bottom to find a link. Before you do, take a look over his favourite records from 2017 – there are some belters!

[Lily Tapes and Discs]

“My favourite album of the year, it is soothing, warm and very delicate. Listening to it makes me feel like I’m floating on the sea, being lulled by the waves with the sun on my face.”



ot to, not to
These Movements I & II
[ACR]

“This album was a big surprise, I listened to it the first time without too many expectations (I had read there was a guy singing and this somehow put me off), and then I just couldn’t stop listening to it again and again. “



M. Sage

Jupiter Primative (Fragments from 2016)
[Self Released]

Every album of M. Sage is unpredictable, you press play and don’t know what’s coming: an album of acoustic guitars? Field recordings? Electronica? I like the feeling of everything this guy makes, especially his electronica albums. I am not a fan of electronic music at all, but M. Sage plays a different kind of electronic music. When I listen to his music I don’t picture a guy in front of a computer, instead I perceive a lot of physicality, a sort of handmade, physical touch and then I love his weird, unpredictable touch. This album is a recollection of various tracks recorded throughout 2016 and it features all the sounds of M. Sage’s palette.

[Rat Tail Tapes]

“A guy alone with his drumkit, no electronic devices, no overdubs, just his hands, his sticks and his drumkit. What you see if what you get, no tricks. He is very creative and colourful in his playing and playful and melodic, too. I found out about this album after I recorded my own solo drums album, and listening to it made me feel less lonely: somewhere in the world there was another guy recording weird drums-solo improvisations, someone else going alone with his drumkit against the world.”


Josh Mason
Barque Of Phosphor
[Self Released]

“I like everything Josh Mason releases, the reel to reel feeling of his music. This is a short album, a 4-track summer tour tape, with modular synth, guitar, tape. It is Josh Mason, so it goes on my list. Also, by following Josh on bandcamp I found out about Naps for the first time, so I’m grateful to him twice.”


What have you been up to Francesco?
“A few weeks ago Thirsty Leaves Music released my first solo album, “Olive”. It contains short improvisations on drums and percussion, and it was released on CD with beautiful packaging. I recorded those improvs on a single day when my wife was pregnant with our first daughter, so it is a very special album to me and I’m very proud of how it came out. In January, we’re recording some new music with my duo Covarino/Incorvaia, we will record some drums/guitar improvs for a couple of days here in Granada. I would also like to do some sort of long-distance collaboration with musicians I admire and with whom I’ve been in contact in the last few months, we’ll see how all that works out”
