Huge Thanks to Vena Cava for an awesome performance and being our video crash test <3
Keep your eyes open for more soon!

It’s here!

Vena Cava’s Entropy EP is out now on CD + Digital download/Streaming

GUITARS…..…..LOUDER… PEDALS SET TO STUN…CREATING WALLS OF GUITTARIFIC SHIMMER blasting melody and noise onto a different orbit!

There’s an intricate interplay between the psychedelically embued sprawls, dreamscaping vocals, and an almost post-hardcore attacking rhythm section, this is high octane stuff, not to be messed with lightly.. dive in, if you dare, you will catch the sonic-waves and soar.

You can also buy/stream it at iTunes here

Since setting up the label, the support we have had from people in Bristol and the South West has been awesome. The podcast has allowed us to reach further with submissions coming from all over the UK and abroad now too.

We did an interview with Adam Burrows for his last feature as editor at Bristol 24/7’s music arm. Having played in bands before, aswell as running his own label, he’s been helping spread the word about Bristol music consistently for years. We were really pleased when he suggested getting together. The feature can be found in the February 2017 print edition which you can pick up for free at various news outlets. You can also read the full interview on the B24/7 site here



We are pleased to say that our first release, a split single is coming out on the 16th December 2016

A. Charivari – Purge
AA. Iceman Furniss Quintet – 180716

It will be available from the bands, You’ll see them playing live all the time in Bristol / Bath so go check em out!

We will also have some copies available through our website, and a few good record shops going forward!

Its been a real journey getting this up together, for everyone. but a good one!

We feel proud to have been able to work with so many friends on this project. From the musicians/ production/ mixing / mastering to the artwork, design, print. All within a local network of talented creatives working together to push new sounds.
