MIE is out of this world to be working with Rhyton on their new LP 'Navigating by Starlight'. Having worked with the trio Dave Shuford, Jimy Seitang and Rob Smith on various Black Dirt Oak releases and Rob on the Pigeons LP too it was great to be able to get to work with them together in their Rhyton guise. It will be released in glossy tip-on sleeves for the decadent look and comes with d/l codes and will be released on the Winter Solstice, 22nd December.

"Saturday Night Fever" takes the concept of the movie of the same name and stretches the night a bit later, the fever a bit higher to the point where the party ends up blending into something much more sinister and wild. What starts out as a disco drumbeat with funky guitar swagger and melodic horns, may slowly deteriorate into some sort of corroded ambient loop that eventually morphs into melodic horn samples..

You might remember Black Dirt Oak from that incredible LP we released last year called 'Wawayanda Patent' and you will probably not have heard of Jantar as their only other physical release is the tiny run & free LP, Suit Withers, but you should really be making amends to this fact quickly.
This is the new split 12" by the two bands and its unsurprisingly incredible. Limited to 300 copies and then its gone. Finit.
"The two sides of Presage are distinct but describe in tandem the elemental contours of a shared world: namely, that of Black Dirt Studio and these musicians, some of whom have been recording here in other more familiar constellations for a decade now. Like the Dog Star Sirius, whose heliacal rising presages the wet season of planting and fertility, this twin system also rises, and hopefully augurs well for continued fertility and sonic flooding upon the plains of the lush Wawayanda region and this proven studio." - Rob Smith

MIE has had a little hiatus but we do still have 4 new records at the pressing plant right now and RSD delays aside (boy are they big) we should e getting back into the swing of it. Arriving at the end of May is an enchanting LP by the band Pigeons entitled The Bower. Known primarily as the duo of Wednesday Knudsen (guitar, woodwinds, vocals) and Clark Griffin (bass), they have grown to a three-piece for this LP with the addition of Rob Smith (drums, harmony vocals). The music has also taken on a more sylvan quality, perhaps due to their home / recording studio The Bower in Austerlitz near Hudson, New York.
Limited to 500 LPs and out on May the 29th. Read more and pre-order it here .
