New Whitelabrecs clothing range, out now!

Today we launched some new merchandise on our Bandcamp page, a range of unisex clothing in various colours and sizes. We’ve teamed up with UK based supplier Fanbace which integrates into Bandcamp. This means that instead of limited editions that sell out fast, our customers are able to choose colours and sizes that are made to order and shipped directly from the supplier.

We thought we’d share pictures and details on each of the ranges, as well as links where you can check them out for yourself.
Please note, we’ll be running a winter sale in December so there will be a discount code, which will make these items a bit cheaper. We’d rather point this out now just to save any disappointment.

Stanley/Stella Cruiser Unisex Deluxe Hoodie – Yellow Logo:

This pullover hoodie is made from 85% Organic Ring-Spun Combed Cotton, 15% Recycled Polyster, featuring our logo in ‘Whitelabrecs’ yellow. Of the two hoodies available, this one is the ‘deluxe’, due to its brushed fabric, double layered hood, metal eyelets and a single needle topstitch at the neckline and along the hood opening.

The fit for this one is ‘medium’, so if you prefer your hoodies to have a relaxed fit, go for the next size up.

Sizes available are small, medium, large, extra large, 2 x extra large and 3 x extra large and as you can see from the images above, the colour options are ‘British Khaki’, Navy or Black.

Stanley/Stella Drummer Unisex Pullover Hoodie:

This iconic Stanley/Stella Drummer hoodie is made from 85% Organic Ring-Spun Combed Cotton, 15% Recycled Polyster and features our logo in yellow. This hoodies a fair bit cheaper than the deluxe one above, whilst still having plenty of quality features, including a lined hood in single jersey, stitched button-hole eyelets and this one’s a little bit lighter weight out of the two.

The fit for this one is also ‘medium’, so if you prefer a relaxed fit we recommend you go up a side.

Sizes available are small, medium, large, extra large, 2 x extra large and 3 x extra large and the colour options are Royal Blue, Bottle Green or Anthracite as above.

Bella Canvas 3001 Unisex Glåsbird T-Shirt

Lastly, we decided to launch something that’s not strictly a Whitelabrecs garment, with this Glåsbird T-shirt.
It is 100% airlume ringspun cotton with the Glåsbird logo on the chest. It’s longer sleeved and longer in the body and overall, is a slightly more premium feel to our other two Whitelabrecs T’s.

Sizes available are extra small, small, medium, large, extra large and 2 x extra large and the colour options are Navy, Pink or White as you can see above.

[whitelabtapes] – wlr-t02 – [mixed by Andrew Sherwell]

Last year we made a small batch of 20 mixtapes available after a disagreement between my wife and I, as she didn’t think people still had tape players. I decided to prove her wrong and put together a special anonymous mix solely using Whitelabrecs material and the tapes sold out in hours.

I’m not sure why, but we haven’t made any more and I’d love this to become a series that anyone can get involved in – over the last few weeks I’ve been in touch with Andrew Sherwell who released ‘Orthodox Tales’ with us earlier this year and he’s kindly assembled the wlt-02!
Many record labels create compilation samplers of material but for our version of this, we decided that mixtapes would be a fun format to introduce people to the label, similar to how vinyl DJ mixes might have been home-taped back in the 1990s.

Andrew’s mix traverses two different paths over sides A and B,
with a dark opening to A unfolding to lighter, dreamy moments with the accompanying micro sounds of overlapping field recordings. Side B is more of the same, yet with added warmth. As always, the tracklist is anonymous as these tapes are intended to be works of art in their own right, rather than a compilation tape.

There are so many amazing releases on Whitelabrecs. 
I should imagine that it would be quite a daunting exercise, a label specific mix. Where to start? What tracks to choose? Or harder still, what tracks to leave out? Impossible.
Luckily for me, when Harry suggested the idea, I already had a head start. I was already working on a mix which contained quite a few Whitelabrecs tracks. It was a mix to accompany my habitual dusk-time walk along a wild and deserted estuary foreshore, next to which my elderly parents live. A few blustery moments in which to forget the pressing effects of the passing of time, to stop worrying about what is surely hurrying towards us, and to just be……present.
With quite a tricky limit of just under 23 minutes a side, I edited the mix down, keeping the Whitelabrecs tracks already there in place, adding others that suited the mood. Soon the two sides developed their own personalities. Side One: the walk from the house to the rock from which to watch the sun sink slowly into the mouth of the estuary. Side Two: the walk back to the house in the gathering gloom.
Recorded digitally within Ableton (my laptop is all I had with me.) Some tracks are edited, some have additional processing, some suffered both. Thanks to Harry for the invite and to all Whitelabrecs’ amazing artists. Apologies to those artists whose work I have mangled.
For my parents.-ANDREW SHERWELL

The cover artwork printed on the packaging was taken during a huge thunderstorm at the end of an extended period without rain.

[whitelabtapes] – wlr-t01

For a good while, we’ve been meaning to put together a sampler mix to showcase some work from select releases in our catalog. Ever since recent studio experiments with tapeloops, we’ve taken an interest in the cassette format again and decided that our sampler would literally take the format of a mixtape, similar to how bootleg vinyl mixes might have been home-taped back in the 1990s.

The mix is a ‘guess-who’ of material from our discography, blending tracks harmonically into 22 minutes and 50 seconds each side of the tape. The mix is available digitally if you’ve sold your cassette player on a car boot sale but for anyone who still have a machine, the added hiss will surely add to your listening experience.

The cover artwork printed on the packaging was taken in a field a couple of hundred yards away from our home, on a warm summers day.
Our tape supplier has many colour options so these will change as this infrequent sub-series continues but naturally, we plumped for white in this inaugural edition.
