    New label that has cropped up on Soundcloud, very tasty first release. Anyone got any info?


    Blurb from said page:

    We intend to occasionally release highly limited once-off bespoke pressings of music that we believe is both timeless and relevant. All releases will come packaged in hand-numbered full artwork sleeves, pressed to the highest standards of quality.

    With our future releases we hope to continue to bring you music that captures the dark, organic, timeless, tribal vibe we've always looked for in a record. Feel free to chuck over a few tunes for us to argue about.

    Trees, Stone Circles, Rivers, Hazel Scrub, The Burren, Bog Oak, Turloughs, Mythical Heroes, Fairy Hills, Mushrooms, Swans, Silver, The Táin, Cattle, Rain, Salmon, Cú Chullain, Holy Wells, Bodhráns, Whiskey, Sheep, Ould lads with watery eyes singing a poem at the fleadh cheoil, Ring Forts, Fiddles, Ruins, Hurling, Stout, Tenspots and Queen Medb's friendly thighs.

    Actually just noticed this was put up 3 years ago...

    Story! That was us, one release in 2010, thought long and hard about doing more but then one of us moved to the UK.

    Might do another release one of these days if we feel we have the right music, if we don't then we're just proud to have played a small part in helping two of our absolute favourite tunes get a release.

    Thanks for checking!

    Glad you like! Cartridge is (was?) a Canadian producer who had a handful of releases around 2005-ish on labels like Freak and Bassbin and who then kind of dropped away from the limelight; last I heard he'd started a band and was doing pretty well out of it.

    There's a tune he did on Bassbin that's not on Youtube for some reason, and it's probably one of my favourite records of all time, really REALLY intense pounding tribal drum workout, if you can't find audio for it anywhere just do yourself a favour and splash out on the record, you'll get it for absolute peanuts and there's a sick Nolige tune on the flip as well.
