Fabrica Records 2013, Part 1

New on Fabrica Records:

rambutan lpFABREC025  RAMBUTAN  Inverted Summer  LP
“Inverted Summer” is the full-length vinyl LP debut of Eric Hardiman’s (Century Plants/Burnt Hills) solo project. As Rambutan, Hardiman has released a steady stream of quality material on a variety of underground labels since 2007. Subtly bridging realms of noise, dub, psych, drone, minimalism, and musique concrete, Rambutan brings listeners into a unique sonic headspace that finds common ground between bliss and dread. Utilizing various electronics, synthesizers, tapes, guitar, and bass, “Inverted Summer” is a sprawling, wide-angle piece of work, yielding deep zones of textural soundscaping that can soothe and unsettle in equal measure. “Inverted Summer” captures Rambutan’s thick, dubby atmospherics in all their glory, revealing Hardiman to be a sound artist whose improvisational techniques are as formidable as his sense of structure and development. These are alien soundtracks for the recombinant generation, just waiting for you to disappear into them. Mastered by James Plotkin, and cut by Golden Mastering. Edition of 300 on thick black vinyl. Includes free download card.

Blanton_Ravine_Download_CoverFABREC027 PUBLIC SPEAKING Blanton Ravine LP
On his knees in a semicircle of electronic processors and percussive clutter, the singer quakes and moans, possessed with a passionate, paranoid vision. Public Speaking is the solo moniker of Brooklyn experimental musician Jason Anthony Harris. Utilizing found objects, radio, tape recorder, synthesizer and effect pedals, he constructs percussive, textural music for his deep, soulful vocals to croon over. Somewhere between Brian Eno and Tune-Yards, or Tortoise and James Blake, Harris’ music explores pop music as organized sound.
The Deli Magazine wrote: “This is soul music functioning as 21st century meditation… [This] is what happens when an artist personally realizes the sound of his environment, and puts it to use.” His first full-length, “Blanton Ravine” is a lush collection of songs and sounds drawing on avant rock, IDM, ambient, noise, and R&B.
LP Edition of 225 on black vinyl.CD Edition of 100.

Robert Turman “Beyond Painting” 2xLP

FABREC020FABREC020 TURMAN, ROBERT Beyond Painting 2xLP

Robert Turman began making sound experiments in the early 70’s employing reel-ro-reel tape, cassette decks, arp synth, drum sequencers, multiple string and percussion instruments, and whatever else he could scavenge. In the late 70’s he co-founded NON (along with Boyd Rice), but left shortly after the release of the Mode of Infection/Knife Ladder 7″ e.p. to focus on composing and releasing his own music on limited-edition, and now extremely rare, cassette tapes. Robert has collaborated with art rockers FZ13, post-apocalyptic industrialists Z.O. Voider, and more recently Aaron Dilloway (Wolf Eyes, Nevari Butchers), Neon Depth and Jandek.

Beyond Painting, with its 72 minutes of haunting lo-fi ambience, is probably one of Robert’s most accomplished recordings. Layers of meditative synth loops, guitar, and eastern tinged melodies, all beautifully delayed, bring to mind blistering desert landscapes, high-tension cold war era spy action sequences, and dark cavernous sounds.

Originally recorded in 1990, these tracks did not see the light of day until 2010 when they were self released on a limited run of 100 professionally printed and duplicated CD-Rs. Beyond Painting follows in the footsteps of the recently reissued “Flux” cassette on LP (Spectrum Spools).

Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk (Mississippi Records, Sublime Frequencies, Grouper, Wooden Shjips, Yellow Swans) at Stereophonic Mastering.

Edition of 500 on 140grm black vinyl in full-color gate-fold jacket.

First 100 copies sold through this website will include a small zine with an interview with Robert Turman, discography and photos.

FAB021 AERONAUT Coronal Mass C-36
Aeronaut is Steve Fors, a multi-instrumentalist and composer from Brooklyn, NY. Also member of the Chicago-based drone/noise outfit, The Golden Sores, he’s been experimenting with long-form song structures since 1995. In his current work, he is interested in exploring the relationship between sound and time; specifically how sustained fields of sound can alter our temporal perception and physical awareness. He says of his work/process, “It’s that moment–when everything around you ceases to exist, or rather you become everything around you, or rather still the boundaries of skin and self and earth and air are shattered; when you’re acutely conscious but completely powerless and everything turns to white–when that split second turns timeless, there is nothing else but crushing joy.”
Two 18 minute side long tracks of ear blazing epic drone contained in a 36 minute pro-dubbed cassette secured in a black wooden box. Each and every box was painted. printed and hand-assembled by the artist himself. Includes digital download. Buy Now

FAB016 – LAZURITE  s/t  C-36
Fluorescent night dystopian city music.
This is the second full-length release by hyperactive Brooklyn-based experimental musician and visual artist Megan Moncrief. Her first release was a self-produced, self-packaged (each cassette was hand-painted and was one of a kind) cassette whose eerie ambient sounds captured our imaginations. A message offering to release more of her music was promptly sent via the world wide web. Lucky for us, she accepted, and now we are able to offer 36 minutes of amazing new sounds extracted from the ukelin, synths, drum machines, medicine balls, drums and voice processed through a diverse link of effect pedals.

FAB018 – SOUND OUT LIGHT  Bloom  C-30
Music like the sound of a power generator in the middle of a vast desert where the escaping ions affect the landscape, creating unusual lifeforms that grow out of the cracked ceramic floor after an acid-rain storm. Sound Out Light is David Doyen on digital synth.
