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.

In other news, while doing a clean up and sorting out the distro stuff we ran into a few stray copies of out of print Fabrica cassette releases. We’ve just listed them in the shop, there’s only 1 or 2 each of:
STRNGLV Psychotropia C-30 (FAB004)
EARTHMASTERS Dwellings C-20 (FAB009)
ADRIANVARALLYAY/STRNGLV Split C-45 (FAB011)
DEREK ROGERS Hex Illumination C-30 (FAB014)
We’re also working on a new website and our 2014 schedule of releases, expect some awesome news very soon.
The new Fabrica Recs batch is finally HERE. 3 new tapes, all in editions of 50.
FAB017 – WOLF FLUORESCENCE We’re So Glad You’re Home C-36
Wolf Fluorescence is the solo project of experimental musician and NY-native Ross Devlin. On We’re So Glad You’re Home he conjures long summers, nostalgia for youth, and time spent with family and loved ones. Dream-like ambient music with a warmth that seems to be a missing from a lot of the very precise and clinical-sounding experimental music out there.
Edition of 50 on pro-dubbed high-bias chrome and full color j-card + insert (made by the artist).
FAB014 – DEREK ROGERS Hex Illumination C-30
Six new dark electronic tracks from this distinguished and extremely prolific gentleman currently residing in the city of angels. Hex Illumination is the perfect soundtrack for a late night drive through post-recession America’s once thriving cities.
FAB012 – INSECT FACTORY/LUCIERNAGA Split C-80
New sounds from Silver Spring, MD’s own guitar-drone project INSECT FACTORY and Gowanus Brooklyn’s LUCIERNAGA.
INSECT FACTORY provides two extended guitar-based drones of sounds and textures that meld into haunting yet-tuneful melodies. These two tracks are an excellent companion to the recently released full-length INSECT FACTORY LP on FABRICA/INSECT FIELDS.
LUCIERNAGA, normally a guitar-only project, this time around includes acoustic and electric guitar, mbira, buddha machine, and looped field recordings. LUCIERNAGA is accompanied by Sean Keane (STRNGLV) with additional sounds generated by circuit-bent synth and effect pedals.
First edition of 50 packaged in 1/4″ reel-to-reel box.
