STURM und DRANG is part 2 in BABEL’s trilogy of improvised, extended technique pieces for prepared electric guitars. As with HEURTER (part 1), guitar and bass are primarily treated as percussion instruments. These pieces also feature delay loops, junk percussion, wind instruments and electronically manipulated vocal performances.
Since we just dispatched the pre-orders for the BEARD CLOSET / PRIMATE PYRAMID tape, and it’s official release is tomorrow, we figured it’s a good time to post our revised release schedule that will bring us up to the end of 2013.
- Oct. 31: BEARD CLOSET / PRIMATE PYRAMID tape
- Nov. 11: PARTLI CLOUDI “Two Moron Ever Nose” CD
- Nov. 25: BABEL “Sturm und Drang” CDEP
- Dec. 02: MUTED RAINBOW “Intuitions” CD
- Dec. 16: ROSS BAKER / TRANZMIT tape
- Dec. 30: BABEL “Rillingen” CD
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Also, now is a good time to put out a call for 2014 releases. If any of you have a project without a home, and it’s sufficiently weird (or at least insufficiently normal), and you’d like to see it get a small, ridiculously packed, run (50 copies, tops) drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or if you know a weirdo whose music needs a home, send them our way.
And if you’re someone who we’ve been discussing a release with, this is a friendly reminder to send us those files!
We plan to do up to a maximum of 12 releases (cassette / CD / CDEP / maybe a 7″?!?) next year, ideally on a monthly basis. Also, there’s a very specific (yet completely undefined) label aesthetic (and limited budget), so let that be a caveat that we reserve the right to be beggars and picky choosers.
