Update: This release is now available for pre-order! See below for details.
After about a year in the making it is of great excitement to announce the upcoming release of this compilation called “And You Will Find Them In The Basement” on Desire Records. This eight track compilation is a communal effort of a small group of London and UK-based synth/wave groups that at some point decided that releasing a compilation would be a good way to document their emerging scene. A number of meetings in East London pubs and through back and forth communications allowed all involved to hammer out the details on how this record could be released with Desire eventually taking interest.
The title itself refers to the small clubs in East London where these artists have been putting on shows and sharing stages together at a number of events over the last few years. Tracklisting is as follows:
LEBANON HANOVER “Cadaverously Quaint”
LINEA ASPERA “Attica”
MILD PERIL “Alpha Zone”
TEAM PI$$ “Low”
GERTRUD STEIN “U Bahn”
N?I KABÁT “I Corrode”
SOFT RIOT “Cinema Eyes”
A TERRIBLE SPLENDOUR “Garçon Dans Le Vent”
The cover artwork is a silk-screen print by Jonas Ranson of N?i Kabát with the layout and typesetting by JJD of Soft Riot.
“And You Will Find Them In The Basement” is out March 2013 on Desire Records and is available for pre-order now:
