The bee and flower 7″ is available now (check releases and mailorder sections for more info), consists of 2 tracks (of wich one unreleased before) and features the beautiful artwork of Nicole Boitos. Limited to 500 handnumbered copies.

The god is an astronaut – Far from refuge 12″ is planned for the 2nd week of april if everything goes as planned at the pressing plant.

I’m also glad, honoured and really excited to announce my 3rd release: A split-10″ between the wonderful artists A whisper in the noise (Minnesota) & Rhys Marsh and the autumn ghost (UK/Norway). The plan is to have this out somewhere in july/august.

First glimpse of light

Just writing a quick post on here to avoid the impression not much is happening. At the moment the first release is almost finished and will hit the press somewhere next week. Estimated release date: Beginning of february.

Negotiations about the 2nd release are as good as done, so that can be expected around springtime. After that things will probably start to run a bit smoother and I can start giving updates about future releases.
