New Release Addendum:

As some of you probably noticed, several of the tracks from the recent Sypha Nadon release ended rather abruptly. This was not intentional. The damaged files were up for the first dozen or so downloads, but they have since been replaced. If you were one of the enterprising, though unfortunate, early downloaders, you might wish to return to the download page so you can hear the full release as it was meant to be heard. We apologize for the inconvenience.

New Release from SYPHA NADON:



Sypha Nadon - Threnody for Zumb Zumb


This, Sypha Nadon's second full-length release, marks a new phase in his musical development. The familiar elements are still here - the signature off-kilter melodies and savage noise breaks - but the album is more unified than previous efforts. Threnody is also SN's most minimalistic work thus far, allowing simple patterns and complex textures to unravel over time, revealing their inner richness.

01. Sonic Lwa
02. Phil Collins finds the Godhead
03. Ginen
04. Barracuda Lullaby
05. The Sypha Nadon Factory Tour
06. Threnody for Zumb Zumb
07. Russolo for Dummies
08. The Meon
09. Kill the Violence
10. Kind Hands is the Cure

Oddio Overplay Compilation: Calling All Fiends

"Halloween is meant to be scary, right? Year after year we dust off the old silly 1950s and 1960s novelty records. While they are fun, they not at all frightening. Oddio Overplay put the challenge to musical artists the world over to create Halloween music that is "frightening, damaging and disturbing." No 'Monster Mash,' instead creepy soundtracks to a fiendish Halloween. They succeeded with CALLING ALL FIENDS! Some of these pieces will creep you right out of your skin."

New Release: Harel Gal - the beginning the end [plague006]

For this, our sixth label release, the dream is taken up by Israeli songwriter and soundsmith Harel Gal. When Harel contacted the PlagueDream Institute, we were immediately struck by the intimacy and tenderness of his musical vision. His sonic palette is often melancholic, occasionally foreboding, but never bleak. In addition to playing guitar, flute, electronics, and many other instruments and non-musical objects, Harel also has the distinction of being the first singer on the label. His gentle voice graces two songs, away and sounds of sorrow.

Another Announcement:

Sypha Nadon hit another milestone today, as his Enter Horus reaches 200 downloads!

(I don't suppose I'll keep making these announcements indefinitely - we're a young label, and we still get, perhaps, unreasonably excited about these sorts of things.)

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

We were surprised and gratified this morning to find that This Plague of Dreaming is now listed at Mothers Against Noise (dot org). Unsolicited links feel good.

Nice site. Come for the outrage, leave with a compilation.

I am Posting to Make An Announcement: Sypha Nadon's 11 Chants for Russolo has reached 100 downloads!

If you were among the lucky listeners who survived the album, why not leave a dazzling review?

And if you have not yet tested your mettle, why not give it a go? We'll be waiting.
