THE IVL DISCOS Series IVL-0001-0004
The IVL Discos is a new PIAPTK subsidiary inspired by the weird, avant garde, non-commercial side projects of so many bands that I know. Here are the details. Some of these will have been made by bands that you know and love, and some will be bands that you WOULD have loved had you known them.
Listen to them all HERE: https://soundcloud.com/user-124791780
1) All releases will be limited to 53 lathe cut 7” (max 6 min per side) copies. 17 artist copies, 33 copies sold through our website, and 3 copies that will be mailed to a randomly chosen thrift store in an American town that nobody has ever heard of. All releases will be sold through the website for $8.88 each.
2) Each release will be recorded by musicians in other bands. Could be established bands, collaborations between friends, super groups, solo artists, whatever. Each release will be credited to a pseudonym (chosen by the band), and all performers will choose pseudonyms for themselves. No information (other than the pseudonyms) about the band or performers will be released until after all the copies have been sold.
3) All music will be in the vein of avant garde, experimental, noise, etc. It is preferable that the music be so far outside the standard output of the artists involved that it is unrecognizable.
4) The label is responsible only for curation of the artist… the artists will be given FULL creative control to record/release ANYTHING they want.
5) The records will be on clear, square, 7” lathe cuts. They will be packaged in minimal, consistent, and relatively ugly covers.
6) All releases will be available for streaming through Soundcloud until they are sold out, and will then be taken down. No digital files will be offered.
