Available titles:

BT. HN. - He is Risen CS

Pier Paolo Pasolini's "The Gospel According to Matthew" portrayed a Christ mythologized by two millennia of history and faith. "He is Risen" is 2000 years of the Christ-figure's crumbling decay.

BT. HN. is Sam McKinlay (THE RITA) and Josh Rose (SICK BUILDINGS).

C34. Edition of 102 copies on professionally duplicated red rubine tapes.

FLATGREY - Tombs CS

Currently located on the west coast and active since the mid-2000s with time served in both Vancouver and Montreal, FLATGREY continues to launch assaults of pure harsh noise. Plain and simple. This is the first document since 2012's split tape with GRKZGL and comes 11 years after the premiere releases on noteworthy Vancouver label rundownsun.

C26. Edition of 100.

THE NAUSEA - Requiem Aeternam CS

Anju Singh has been the primary figure behind the Vancouver Noise Festival for the past seven years, the drummer and vocalist in long-running (and now nearing fully-realized) death metal band AHNA, and has held countless other roles in the punk, metal, and harsh noise scenes in Vancouver. THE NAUSEA has existed alongside all of this for the better part of a decade now. These six violin-based movements channel GYORGY LIGETI's works popularized in "2001: A Space Odyssey", and JOHNNY GREENWOOD's contemporary classical score for "There Will Be Blood", as they both ascend to levels of compositional clarity and descend into a cavernous, hellish nightmare populated by the harrowing voices of the dead and the dying. Similarities can be drawn to JASON LESCALLEET's epic "The Pilgrim" as the crescendo of harsh noise begins to decay. Death is the ultimate theme at play here. A long-awaited debut release from a figure instrumental in maintaining Vancouver's integrity in the harsh noise scene and beyond.

Original artwork by Mark Orton (Skinny).

C28. First edition of 100 on pro-dubbed, pad-printed, sonic-smoke coloured tapes sold out. Second edition of 50 on pro-dubbed matte black tapes available.


ANDREW NOLAN - Background Music CS

Recycled fragments of larger elements. Heavy electronics and acoustic instruments. A transparent labeling of daily soundscapes. Musique concrète from the urban wasteland.

C30. Edition of 105 copies on professionally duplicated red rubine tapes.

PYROX - Intersect CS

Abrasive waves of blown-out static executed with considered pacing.

PYROX is Alan Bloor (KNURL).

C40. Edition of 102 copies on professionally duplicated red rubine tapes.
