Again, news from labels

Ok, here we are with incoming releases:

- Eleven Pond “Bas Relief” LP (Dark Entries Records)















Dark Entries Records is proud to announce the reissue of the debut album by Eleven Pond. Long sought after by collectors, the Rochester, NY band only released a single LP in their time together before dissolving into obscurity. Their sound–a merging of post punk’s dark dance and synthpop’s melodic arrangements–reflected the originality of gifted songwriters who met in art school with a shared interest in 4AD and Factory Records.
In cooperation with the band members, the entire album has been remastered from the original 2-track analogue masters by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The recordings on this release comprise the band’s entire recorded output and the LP includes an original insert including photos, lyrics and liner notes.

- Brigade Internationale - Regard Extreme LP (Eirkti)


















Originally released in tape 25 years ago, it still remains one of the finest exemplars of the French coldwave scene. Brigade Internationale, an obscure act formed in 1982 really shook the scene right from its foundations by exposing it to their dark-mannered claustrophobic syntheses. To which track should we really draw our attention? ‘First Time’?, ‘Normal Night’?, ‘In Obscurity’?, ‘Le desert des tortures’? To which other really, if not all? An extensive synthesis composed of fearful trombonnes, profound bass-rhymes, intense dark synths executing minimalistic maneuvers in all. Finally, after all these years the group’s magnificent material is released in a proper format ready to re-construct cold ambiences and re-vitalize memories as per their concept of rebellious act against political totalitarianism and unjustifiable violence (Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it..). Eirkti is finally ready for this strictly limited edition of 500 copies including a special info-card.
