New Online Shop + Warehouse Finds

Hi Folks,

fab011_full

So, the distro folded. A very big “thank you” to everyone who placed orders and helped clear a lot of the distro stock during its last two weeks of existence. We’re now simply going to focus on promoting and selling Fabrica releases and the occasional “friends of the label”-related releases.

Thank you!

Fabrica Records 2013: Part 3

New on Fabrica Records:

Culver LPFABREC030 CULVER Gateshead Graves LP
In the crowded field of guitar droneworks, UK musician Lee Stokoe could be said to be hidden in plain sight. For two decades, his solo project Culver and in-house tape label Matching Head have produced a consistent stream of releases without approaching anything near household-name status. This is due in part to a workmanlike, low-profile approach to recording and releasing music, despite time served in the mighty Skullflower. And then there’s the music itself: unpolished, unsettling, a history of textures divorced from any linear notions of progress. Prolific as Culver has been, “Gateshead Graves” marks only the third instance of Lee filling 24 inches of grooved real estate on his own (after the obscure “Route of Aesthetic” lathe cut and the oddly elusive “Dead Winter Blood” LP). It features two side-long tracks that put the listener first in the hold of a ship bound nowhere good and then in an aircraft headed in roughly the same direction. Volume and isolation recommended for an appropriately immersive experience.

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

Limited edition of 200 on black vinyl with hand-numbered insert.

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.
Edition of 50 pro-dubbed high-bias chrome cassette.  Buy Here


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.

FAB019 – HAKOBUNE  The Still Life of Reverie  C-32
Hakobune aka Takahiro Yorifuji uses layers of guitar to create meditative hypnotic sonic landscapes. We are very proud of this release. Yorifuji is from a small town in Hyogo, Japan and currently resides in Tokyo.Edition of 50 pro-dubbed high-bias chrome cassette. Buy Here

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.
