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! WLR016 Finglebone – Sunlit Plumes Of Dust

We recently shared a preview of ‘Sunlit Plumes of Dust‘, which will be our final release of what has been a busy 2016. This record is produced by Adam Varney under his Finglebone alias and is a detailed blend of Folk and Electronica, with finger-picked guitar joining drones and hushed voices; an album themed around memory. The album should appeal to those who like Alexander TuckerBenoit Pioulard or Matt Christensen. It’s available now on Whitelabrecs in a very low run of just 50 CDrs.

At time of writing there are a few copies of this album left – 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
“Finglebone is the artist name for Adam Varney from Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK. He has previously released music on labels including Best Kept Secret Tapes, Rural Colours and Cold Spring and also performs live from time to time, sharing stages with artists such as Loscil, Alasdair Roberts, Expo 70 and Barn Owl.

Adam has been recording as Finglebone since he was fifteen and strives to straddle the lines between folk/post-rock and electronic music. Adam has spent years building his own library of sounds and recordings and he regularly recycles this material, always looking to process it into something new. The songs in ‘Sunlit Plumes of Dust’ are all interrelated; call-backs to previous releases. They build upon melodies and phrases to create new spaces/compositions, like the muddled memories of a nostalgic old man, sat on a bench looking out to sea.

This is the sound track to those memories, good and bad; the emotions they conjure and the acceptance of it all, as his final moments play out sat beneath the setting sun.
Loosely based on Adam’s experience caring for his Grandfather during his final weeks, he witnessed how dementia would render him silent, lost in his own mind, but then release him back into reality. From the glassy-eyed expression to a smile as he regained his clarity of mind and memories.

This record combines electronica and folk inflected finger picked guitar to create an introspective world inhabited by the ghosts of memories, the looming spectre of death and the passing of time. Sunlit Plumes of Dust is presented as a journey through the central themes; melancholy, reverie and the feeling of alienation. This state of mind reflected in the pace and mood of the album as a whole.
