We are proud to release the preorder for one of our upcoming releases:

CRB014 – SWAMP FLOWER RHYME/AERONAUT

Split_DigitalCover_Final

Both sides of the 12″ include banjo, the traditional instrument that has it’s roots in the American Folk music history. The photograph on the album cover was made by A Death Cinematic and shows a run-down house from the rust belt. Both these facts try to build the slight historical and critical approach of the release, trying to reflect on social, economical and political conditions that once existed and therefore, how they might have had an impact on the current situation of world-wide crisis.

On February 20, 12 years ago, Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide, leaving his body of work and those few last words behind.

On February 20, 108 years ago, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti published “The Futurist Manifesto” – capturing the mindset of an era blindly believing in industrial development to bring peace and wealth to everybody. It has instead brought horrible destruction and suffering.

GOOD BYE 2016

So this is our final post for this year, we are looking forward to what the coming 365 days have ready for us. There are already a couple of releases and collaborations planned that are going to be awesome. You will hear some new stuff from Euphrasia, Zwischenwelt and Swamp Flower Rhyme and hopefully many more.

One release we are really happy with is already up for preordering, the debut LP of perverts in white shirts: http://cruelbones.tictail.com/…/perverts-in-white-shirts-po…

There are as well a few shows we will probably do, keep your eyes open.
We’re not expecting 2017 to be easier for small labels like us, but it was never about making big money. It is about dedication and passion, giving experimental and non-mainstream musicians a chance to spread their work and words. All of it would never be possible without the ongoing support from the people around us; thanks to all of you who have helped us with setting up shows, doing artwork and taking pictures, telling others about our work, buying records or just having a conversation with us. It is deeply cherished.

For closing this post, we would like to share our own favourite records of this year with you: Matthias really loved Body Sculpture’s debut “A Body turns to Eden”, released on posh isolation. Dave nominates the new Ulver soundtrack to Justin Oakey’s “Riverhead” – released on House of Mythology – as his favourite record of the year. All great bands and even greater labels to check out.

that’s it, thanks for your support.
much love

CRB012: Perverts in White Shirts – Power to the Sheeple PREORDER

As announced last September, here is CRB012:

161109-final-version

“Power to the Sheeple” brings some experimental diversity to our small label:

when an institution in noise music like Dave Phillips (of the early troublemakers Fear of God and the Schimpfluch Kollektiv) asks you to help release the vinyl of a sideproject, that has been long in the making, well – what do you say?

The album captures songs that were crafted by Nathalie Dreier & Dave Phillips in the past 5 years. As “perverts in white shirts”, they work with various genre elements and create something that could be described as “noise pop”. Jarboe-like voices and hidden references on historical situations crawl through these 8 songs, blend together with chaotic noise and hunt down the peace, that society tries to make us believe.

This record – indeed – is a tough one.

Listen and download the album for free here.
