Knut Interview (in French)

Falling Down Zine posted an interview with Knut on their blog. You can check it out here: Falling Down. It's in French but features the amazing trivia fact that Knut's album Bastardizer is the subject of a question in the Swiss version of Trivial Persuit, which is pretty awesome in our book...

Conspiracy releases update.

The Master Musicians Of Bukkake – Totem 1 LP kind of instantly sold out when the album came out last May. The band is coming back over for a few weeks of tour in Europe so we decided to do a one time pressing of 300 picture disc’s of Totem One, designed by mr Seldon Hunt. The records will be available for their European tour and we will start taking pre-orders early March.

Over to Thrones. Yes, Joe Preston’s Thrones! The 7” record has been announced a couple of years ago, and it got delayed and delayed ever since, but now it is official. We have the mastered recordings for the first new Thrones record in 5 years! And it shreds! The record will be released in March to coincide with the Thrones / Nadja / Ovo European tour. Pre-orders will start early March.

Red Sparowes’ new album ‘The fear is excruciating but therein lies the answer’ LP/CD will be released April 6 on Conspiracy Records. The album is pretty amazing, you can check a preview posted on our blog.

In other release news we will also be doing the new album for Year of No Light and Knut is currently in the studio recording their follow up to Terraformer. More news to follow.

Taiga - hsheal review

"One would perhaps have expected Bryant Clifford Meyer, Keyboarder of a-category-of-their-own Heavy-Post-Sludge Rockers Isis, to come up with a similar momentous in-your-face approach. Instead, „hsheal“, released under the taiga moniker, has turned out a zero-gravity, darkly ethereal Ambient album flourescing in the same impressionist watercolours bleeding into liquid forms on the record cover."

Yet another awesome Tokafi review! Read the full article

Red Sparowes

Los Angeles quintet Red Sparowes offers a preview of song snippets from its forthcoming epic, heavy and sprawling third album in a video trailer posted a couple of days ago. The disc, titled The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer will be released via Conspiracy Records in Europe and through Sargent House in the USA. There has never been as pronounced of a leap in style and scope as with Red Sparowes' latest offering. The Fear is Excruciating, But Therein Lies the Answer maintains their layered arrangements and swirling amplified crescendos, Americana noir soundscapes (punctuated by the extended pedal steel on “In Every Mind”), and gloriously triumphant melodies (“Giving Birth to Imagined Saviors”). Earlier records focused on the larger scope of the album, but the new album is song-centered, with the individual tracks harboring stronger independent identities. And where previous endeavors found the band propelled by enormous walls of sound, they now temper their monolithic progressions with distinct passages of separated and soft-spoken instrumentation. Red Sparowes were suspiciously absent from the playing field over the last three years, and now it’s apparent that they were busy drafting the grandest statement and finest achievement of their existence.

Keep an eye on our blog for more info about this release! We will also post an overview of all our upcoming releases somewhere next week!
