Dear folks, we'll take a short break (aka vacation) before we return with new stuff in autumn (aka the extension of this "summer")
Office will be closed until Sept 29th. All orders will be shipped afterwards.
Take care & see you later
Have you ever tried to smoke a water damaged cigarette? It's not that much fun, is it?
But maybe you're not a nicotine addict. Maybe you're more of a music addict...
But let's start this from the beginning:
Like many independent record labels we have a kind of back-stock.
And like many others it's in a cellar room.
And like many cellar rooms ours was flooded last weekend. I assume you're already guessing where this is going.
To speak frankly: kilos of vinyls, CDs and packaging material have been damaged. Or ruined. The move of lifting a sodden cardboard box filled with LPs still dripping from water pinches your heart. I can tell you.
But it is what it is... The coming days will be spend with analysing the scope of the devastation.
What we already can say is that some of the goods have only been slightly touched b the force of the elements.
Those will still be sold at the shop with some sort of "watedamaged rebate".
Stay tuned, stay dry...
Who can deny that it's really hard to get a grip on the whole genre that goes by the tag of "postrock".
And who can deny that it's almos impossible to describe the sound of one particular band without referring to the standout artists.
We'll try our best not to do that, so let's stick to the facts:
WATERED are a german postrock / posthardcore outfit that has just finished
recording their second album "Some are born into the endless night". This album will be released in late May 2014 on Vinyl, on CD and digitally worldwide.
What will you get?
A deversified and utterly dark shimmering piece of music. An unprettified, rough trip swinging from stirring highs to seething riffs that weight tons.
Check their first track on our soundcloud, get your copy, and check the dates below to catch them live.

The 2nd EP of the german Ex-Industrial rock outfit reaching for a more organic & flowing sound.
The precision of progressive rock, the stoicism of industrial unexpectedly combined with the raw “fuck you” attitude of punk topped off with a lyrical deepness and purity, one has to search for at this day and age, making utopia:banished on the one hand hard to describe but on the other hand the reason they stand out of the uniformity of bands found in those genres today.&nb
