The Glove Of Bones: Fawkes Mask

Fawkes Mask Cover

Just in time for Guy Fawkes Night, Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present “Fawkes Mask”, the newest, and perhaps most mysterious missive from The Glove Of Bones. Continuing with the process of auditory alchemy displayed on the previous albums “Heretical Alchemy” and “9”, “Fawkes Mask” is an expansion of sources and themes, appropriate for both the day and the times we live in. Elements of industrial, electronica, dub and ambient can be found herein, along with the intrigue one encounters when multiple musical genres are fused together in this manner.

The origins of this project can be traced back to May of this year, when The Glove Of Bones received an anonymized email from “Fawkes Mask”. Included was a link to four core pieces: “Fol’eah Dispersion (Ante & Post), Chephaecarro, and Dora JS. These tracks, in addition to original production, were also aided by the Generlter by Thomas Park and additional samples by State Azure (all Creative Commons Attribution licensed). These tracks were then further altered and extended by The Glove Of Bones, and three additional tracks were created to serve as intro, respite, and outro, further building on the already established project themes. Primavera (For E.V.) is noted as being a rework of a track made in the spring of 2020, with the Anxiety Machine and other ‘real instruments’.

For the keen eared among us, there are several repeating loops and themes throughout the album, which may help navigate the provenance of the individual parts and sections. It is also important to emphasize that the individual known as “Fawkes Mask” is NOT Thomas Park, State Azure, The Glove Of Bones, or John Lithium.

Finally, additional credit also to Hainbach for the Noises “Creative Texture Instrument” (www.audiothing.net/instruments/noises/) which gets a huge work out within and very much color the whole work.

Remember, remember, the fifth of November.
THIS IS ARGREC47.
THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.

Now Accepting Track Submissions for our 4th quarterly experimental music compilation

Hello all. Argali Records Netlabel is now accepting tracks for our FOURTH-quarter experimental music compilation for 2022. For this year, we are mixing things up a bit, as the compilations will be (mostly) unthemed and untitled until just before the release date. Hopefully this will encourage people who feel constrained towards adhering to a certain theme/genre. If you are interested, please check out our submission procedure guidelines here (https://argalirecordsnetlabel.com/submission-procedure/). Please note that we will be a little bit stricter regarding people following the guidelines, as it really does help up run the compilation submission process as smoothly as possible as well as reduces the chance of possible mistakes and/or confusion later on. Also be sure to label your email subject something along the lines of “Track for compilation” so we can easily identify it. The last day to send tracks in will be DEC 9th, with a planned release date of DEC 16th. Thank you.

Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present the “Third Quarterly Report Of Argali Records Netlabel: Language Of The Fall”. In the days preceding the darkening nights, the world speaks in the language of the fall. Sounds at once both comforting and unsettling, sometimes easily identifiable but just as often uncomfortably unknown. A cyclical transition, yet each time different. Herein are fifteen auditory explorations of these and other themes, featuring a mixture of techno, industrial, electronica, dark ambient, and as always the less-definable melding of these and other genres.

Music for the language of sound rising from the descent.

This is ARGREC46.
This One’s For You.

Lezet : RoMoXoZ / New Age

Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present “RoMoXoZ / New Age”, a collection of electronica and ambient synth minimalism, respectively. As stated by Lezet, “RoMoXoZ” contains some of their most uplifting, lighthearted tracks in their catalogue, ‘which lent themselves to some tasty remixes in the style of early-to-mid 90’s electronic music’. Definitely something we could all use during these harrowing times. Meanwhile, the “New Age” collection was composed whilst under a spell of Vangelis’ music for 10 days in a row. ‘I did not know until about halfway through my 10-day musical diet that he had passed away. The music of Vangelis and his thoughts ended up being the sole source of inspiration for the album’.

Music for memories and remembrance.
This is ARGREC46.
This one’s for you.

Featuring tracks from long time friends and supporters of the label, this collection is an eclectic mix of electronica, techno, avant-garde, industrial, dark ambience, and noise.

As befitting our troubled times.

Note: this compilation features a wide range of recording volumes.

Music for forward momentum.

Dawnbreaker : Greater Things On The Horizon

Listen/Download here: https://argalirecordsnetlabel.bandcamp.com/album/greater-things-on-the-horizon

Argali Records Netlabel is proud to present “Greater Things On The Horizon” by “Dawnbreaker”, a forty-seven minute longform epic of slowly evolving, blissed out beats, atmospheric light ambience, and chill electronica with a worldly edge. As Linn F states:

“My first artistic alias was Dawnbreaker, founded initially back in 2004 for the sake of releasing a soundtrack I produced for the school video game project. This is by no means a revival, just a proper alias for the final pre-pandemic recording gathering dust on my laptop”.

Linn F. (pronouns she/her) is a statistics student at Linköping University, Sweden, who makes electronic music in her spare time (mostly taking part in diverse projects of Slavek Kwi a.k.a. Artificial Memory Trace), curates/produces the annual INTENT compilation series on a French netlabel Kalamine Records, and develops Oriondrive (representational state transfer API), grown out of collaboration with Thomas Jackson Park. Her passions include programming in R, natural language processing (at this point mostly implementation of diverse AI language models), and hydroponic gardening. Interconnected DWC systems in her tiny apartment in central Norrköping provide her with fresh greens and tomatoes all year round, and something to gaze upon while working out a solution to the next coding/modeling problem. Some of her work is available on her GitHub, updated sporadically, as well as on her Kalamine Records page:

Music for the hopeful horizon.
