“Beyond the ken of mortal men, the stars hang o’er our thoughts. Within our grasp and beyond our reach, the galaxies churn and writhe in the celestial darkness. Thresh’d into being, expanding into the outer void. The planar harrow continues: ever onward”.

Thirty-two tracks designed for interstellar sojourns, featuring dark ambience, industrial, techno, noise, avant-garde, and as always, experimental permutations and cross-hybridization of these and other genres.

Music for galactic tectonics.
This is ARGREC 40.

THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.

Quick update on compilation submissions

•March 7, 2021 • Leave a Comment

Update soon. While you wait, a few quick reminders:
-PLEASE be patient with us if we do not respond to emails/messages right away. We try our best to respond the same day, but sometimes it can be a few days. If we somehow manage to miss your message after a week, feel free to send it again.

-Tracks need to be Bandcamp compatible lossless-codec files, with the file name being “ARTIST/BAND NAME – TRACK NAME” format. This last point is especially important, as it helps us immensely when we are writing update posts, compilation release descriptions, etc.

-Promotional graphics need to be 1500×1500 minimum dimensions to comply with Bandcamp standards. We will NOT upscale your image due to the resulting image quality loss.

-Only one submission per band/musician please. Please do NOT submit multiple tracks and/or ask us to choose which track should be featured.

Believe that covers everything. Deadline for submitting to this compilation is MARCH 31st. Still debating on what to do regarding the cover graphics, more details and a specific release date to be announce in APRIL.
THANKS AGAIN and have a great day!

Hello all. As always, apologies for a lack of timely updates. We hope that next year will be considerably less tumultuous than this one. That being said, here is what we have been able to release since July:

“…and it’s so late…” compilation description: Dark music for dark times. Experimental, electronica, ambient soundscapes, industrial, techno and more awaits the wearied listener. Let these songs be a balm upon your soul in this dark era.

“Pro Choice Noise (For All To Have A Voice” compilation description: Argali Records Netlabel proudly presents “Pro Choice Noise: For All To Have A Voice”. an all-inclusive compilation to support reproductive rights, with all proceeds to be donated to Planned Parenthood. This massive six hour collection, curated by the members of Tomokie’s Cup, features many current luminaries of experimental music. The tracks within contain (but are not limited to) elements of rock, punk, noise, free improvisation, dance, spoken word, avant-garde, drone, free jazz, industrial, and other less definable permutations of sound, with no restrictions regarding genre or track length.

This concludes our compilations for 2020. We plan to announce the first compilation for 2021 in early January.

Hope you are all well, and as always thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

The Glove Of Bones: 9

•December 7, 2019 • Leave a Comment

Ca + Li 9

Listen/Download: https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/album/9

’9’ is the second release where the Glove of Bones ransacks the Lithium Tool Box for inspiration. This isn’t an RMX project, it’s a far more complex & abstracted beast. The LTB content has been sampled, looped, smashed through any number of digital blenders to form back bones and skins on/in fleshy bodies of sound.

The ‘9’ of the title are the daughters of Mnemosyne & Zeus. An erotic (potentially, based on novelistic freedom) issue of their non-consensual interaction, it produced the Nine Muses. Their designations have informed many creative types, artists & poets for as long as they have been spoken of, with their names filtering through to our contemporary understanding of ’the muse’.

The GoB, whilst pilfering sonic content from the Lithium archive has played with broken bells, busted tape machines & radios, essentially fucked guitars, warped temple gongs, dub infected and degraded beatz, and the endless static of gig corrupted hearing. Never entirely finished, they are ripe to move on from.

Many thanks to Nathan for producing the Lithium content and being the big wheel at Argali.
