Out Now! Jazzdefector and Slow Clinic – Green Echo

This new release is a collaboration between two artists who have released solo albums with us; Sebastian Buccheri as Jazzdefector and James Armstrong’s Slow Clinic. The duo met after James admitted on social media that he was suffering from writer’s block and their work together produced something that flowed freely. ‘Green Echois an album of varying drones, full of peaks and troughs which ebb and flow through moments of solitude and more epic bursts. Sebastian’s signature guitar sound is interspersed careful soundscaping. This will be available in 2019’s signature gatefold-LP style CD, in a run of 100 copies  and we’ll release this officially on or around the 19th of October 2019. This one might appeal to artists such as Robin Guthrie, Darkroom or Thom Brennan.

Green Echo was released to subscribers of our mailing list last weekend, who had the first opportunity to grab a copy and these have been selling fast!

press release
“Our next release sees the return of both Jazzdefector and Slow Clinic, who contributed albums to our catalog in 2016 and 2018 respectively. The pair have been connected via social media for quite some time but when James Armstrong (Slow Clinic) had posted about a stint of writer’s block, Sebastian Buccheri (Jazzdefector) messaged to suggest a collaboration.
James agreed and set about creating the sort of paired-back material which started this journey, with his debut for Somehow Recordings; a guitar, a volume pedal, octaver and an endless feedback delay. This was passed over to Sebastian who added his signature guitar sound to add new layers of improvised melody to James’ drones.

The collaboration that became ‘Green Echo’ drew out a combined strength between two artists who had reached a plateau in their creativity at that point. In their mutual brick walls they found that the blocks were removed through the creation of Green Echo. The bouncing back and sharing of ideas, or echoes if you prefer, translated into something greener, as hope and optimism took hold. The album itself has also become a collection of memories which reflect this positive experience created in winter and for Sebastian in particular, he recalls the fading green landscapes of the midlands, UK countryside in which he lives.”

Out Now! WLR013 Jazzdefector – Solo

We recently posted up a preview of our next release which is by Leicester, UK based guitarist Sebastian Buccheri, under his Jazzdefector guise. In ‘Solo’ we have a short album of late night reverb-drenched guitar improvisations that will appeal to fans of Robin Guthrie, Loren Connors or Harold Budd. 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 many copies have sold already. At time of writing there are some 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
“Jazzdefector is a Leicestershire based guitarist called Sebastian Buccheri. Sebastian’s most recent work includes an album for Cathedral Transmissions, an EP on our sister label Audio Gourmet and he’s also had a record out on Assembly Field.
His sound is typically reverb-drenched guitar but not necessarily pure drone; instead, Sebastian’s work sees the guitar compositions take centre stage. He has recently begun performing live with artists such as Yellow6 and Cluster and in his album for Whitelabrecs, much of the work is improvised live and fed through a chain of pedals and plugins.

In ‘Solo’, you’ll be struck on the jazzy yet intimate tone of the 12 short pieces which is best enjoyed late at night in solitude. Fripp, Eno and Budd are inevitable influences but Sebastian also enlists Jazz greats Miles Davis and John Coltrane as guitar legend Jimi Hendrix.
He wanted Solo to adopt a loose label of ‘Ambient love songs’, focusing on love as an emotion but without being too specific. This means that individual interpretation can allow it to relate to the listener.
