Available Now: INSECT FACTORY Melodies From A Dead Radio LP

FABREC015/IF012 INSECT FACTORY Melodies From a Dead Radio LP
Insect Factory is music from Silver Spring, MD musician Jeff Barsky. Insect Factory focuses on texture and mood, building layers of dense sounds that slowly evolve into hypnotic and
atmospheric drones. Since the 90’s, Barsky has continuously played in bands and improvisational collectives, and has performed frequently on the east coast of the U.S., in Canada, throughout Europe, and Japan. Barsky’s various projects have shared the stage with acts as diverse as Richard Pinhas, Nels Cline, Acid Mothers Temple, and Carla Bozulich, and he has performed at Suoni Il Per Popolo festival in Montreal, Terrastock 7 in Louisville, KY, and D.C.’s Sonic Circuits, Queering Sound, and Fringe Festivals. Insect Factory’s first release, “Air Traffic Control Sleep”, was released in the late summer of 2007, to acclaim from the likes of Washington Post, the Wire, and Terrascope. Following a recent split 7″ with RST (New Zealand), Melodies from a Dead Radio is Insect Factory’s second full-length and vinyl debut. Melodies From A Dead Radio was mastered by Christopher Leary (Melograf Studios) and the master lacquer was cut at Golden Mastering.
Edition of 300 on 140 gram black vinyl. This is a split release between Fabrica Records and Insect Fields.

2 New Fabrica Tapes

Hi Folks,

After some unfortunate delays, FAB013 BRIZBOMB 1107 C-42 and FAB011 ADRIANVARALLYAY/STRNGLV C-45 have now arrived and are available for sale at the Fabrica Store. Also, all other in-print Fabrica titles are on sale for $3.00.

FAB013 BRIZBOMB 1107 C-42
New 6 track 40 plus minute recording from Vancouver, WA one-man synth-rack project BRIZBOMB. 1107 is BRIZBOMB’s follow-up to the mind-blowing 0909 LP from 2010, and is a continuation of the drone-synth explorations of said album, yet the 6 tracks contained herein stand on their own as the even heavier, intense, and forward-thinking children of its predecessor. All tracks were recorded using an 1.8 meter tall, 147 kilo (5’10”, 325+ pound) rack (click here for complete gear listing) and all audio was generated live with no edits, no overdubs, no computer, no keyboards, no sequencing, no samples, and no pre-recorded material.

Mastered at Stereophonic Mastering by Timothy Stollenwerk. Edition of 100 on pro-dubbed high-bias chrome cassette.

New collaborative split cassette between mysterioso noise-maker ADRIANVARALLYAY and psychotropical ambient sound collagist STRNGLV. ADRIANVARALLYAY is a Brooklyn-based experimenal musician and is the mastermind behind COVERED IN DIAMONDS AND JEWELS whose self-titled cassette was Fabrica’s second official release. Using an astounding amount of analog effect pedals, contact mics, bass guitar and other resonant objects like metal pipes, he makes heavily delayed psychedelic ambient noise. STRNGLV is the child of NJ-native Sean Keane, a collagist of both sound and image (check out some his prints here), and this is his second release with Fabrica (and definitely not the last). On this occasion, STRNGLV provides us with a single-side track of post-industrial ambient drenched in tribal, komische and sound cut-ups created by synth, circuit bent effects, and tape loops.

First edition of 50 on pro-dubbed high-bias chrome cassettes with amazing cover art by Sean Keane (STRNGLV).
