ACL 2016: The Year’s Best Labels

France’s Eilean Records ascends to the top spot this year, followed by Erased Tapes and 1631 Recordings.  These labels each released an impressive amount of work in 2016, all of consistent quality.  Each is a role model for the industry.  One has been

Sustainer ~ Medicina

On the surface, Medicina seems like a lost album from The Caretaker, until one considers its pedigree.  These old records didn’t come from the 20s and 30s, but the 60s and 70s.  They represent a loving reclamation of a maligned form of

E and I ~ The Colour of Sound

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from E and I (Emmanuel Witzthum and Craig Tattersall).  Their last album was on the sorely missed Cotton Goods label; the only thing we don’t miss about Cotton Goods is the tiny print runs.  Eilean Records

Florian von Ameln ~ Rvvr

The last of Eilean’s summer releases, Rvvr captures that late season, dry gulch moment, when all is mud and dust.  As with all of Eilean’s releases, it’s assigned a color ~ in this case, blue.  But this blue, visible only in the

An Eilean Spring (Part II): Daniel K. Bohm & Phi Bui

Eilean Records continues to investigate its experimental side with its third and fourth releases of the season: a mysterious outing from Daniel K. Böhm and an elaborate, cross-genre debut from Phi Bui. Daniel K. Böhm’s Carrier comes with a carefully constructed fictional back

An Eilean Spring (Part I): Jason Van Wyk & Chris Dooks

One of our favorite labels of 2015 continues to come on strong in 2016.  The difference this year is that the label has made a conscious effort to expand its sound palette.  Spring’s releases begin in the ambient vein, but

Autistici & Justin Varis ~ Nine

It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a color-based release, the last being Machinefabriek’s Colour Tones.  The new release from Autistici & Justin Varis is just that: an investigation of shades and tones, garnished with a diverse remix disc.  The topical choice is
