Yin-Yin – The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers
Where to place YĪN YĪN on the map ? Maybe somewhere between Netherlands and South-East Asia, on an imaginary tropical island. That’s where they brew a strange cocktail made of discogrooves, powerful “thaï beat” tunes and experimental tropi-synths. After two remarkable singles on Les Disques Bongo Joe, they’re back with « The Rabbit That Hunts Tigers ». Made of groovy tunes and dance killers, this album could be the crazy soundtrack of a 60s hippie village on the South China Sea.
Features members of O(Kreis) and Bounty Island

Piggy Black Cross – Always Just Out Of R.E.A.C.H.
Drawing on their experience in a variety of genres including IDM, post industrial, jazz, hardcore punk, ethereal wave and popular music, Bridget Bellavia and Toby Driver have created a body of work that defies classification. Driver, a prolific avant-garde composer takes the reigns with a densely electronic compositional work. Bellavia, a vocalist, songwriter, and visual artist tells tales of the human condition, authoritarian machination and lyrical horror such as with the tale of the haunted glove in Psygh Øn Raindom ÆllÆy. Bellavia draws from literature, film and art to create vocal melodies and lyrics as well as visuals for live shows. From astral projection to supernatural manipulation, Driver draws on countless caliginous forces to fashion unpredictable and somber arrangements. Piggy Black Cross is a tumultuous yet harmonious project that will stir the inmost affection.
Edition of 100 cassettes housed in a diecut cardstock case.

Onhou – Endling
Releasing their first full-length Endling, Onhou is expanding on the hopelessness of their arduous sound, fighting against the inevitable. Endling will find you dragged into discomfort with Onhou’s bulking riffs, dark electronics and thundering rhythms. One can try to find reason or refuge, wagin a war with all of your might while it burns the heart out of you. But one will only find loss, without a trace of existence. There is no legacy. There will be no judgment. This is Endling.
Endling is a co-release with Lay Bare Recordings (LP) and Tartarus Records(Cassette/digital)
Edition of 100 cassettes housed in a cardstock diecut sleeve with printed burlap bag

All You Know is Hell – Gape
All You Know Is Hell is a sludge solo project formed in 2016 Brooklyn, NY by Joseph Merlini.

Gape is now available on cassette. Vinyl in 2020
Edition of 100 pink cassettes housed in a diecut cardstock case

Skemer – Benevolence
Skemer is a brand new cooperation between singer Kim Peers, who’s also a model for Vogue, Steven Meisel, Prada and guitarist Mathieu Vandekerckhove of post-metal band Amenra and his personal project Syndrome. Two very different worlds collide and lead to minimalist dark wave deconstructions that are equal parts brutal and erotic. This duality is reflected in the name Skemer, which next to its obvious English meaning of ‘intriguer’ also stands for ‘dusk’ in Mathieu’s native tongue West-Flemish, as well as in their debut album.
Edition of 100 cassettes housed in a deluxe box with metallic red hotfoil finish.
