PLASMIC FORMATIONS - “YEARS OF AN UNWANTED PAST”: This release collects the early, un-released works of Josh Fink aka Plasmic Formations, pre-dating even his work with Yes,Collapse (2004 - 06) by several years. In fact several of the tracks were recorded as far back as 1999, before Fink was able to obtain a synth. These are archived from private tapes never intended for any kind of release, recorded quickly and crudely, and the sets ups were crude and minimal, yet upon unearthing the material for this tape it was discovered that even on these early recordings Fink still held the ability to create the expansive, slowly evolving blissed out synth vibe we’ve come to expect. Even while using as little as a contact mic on a cheap bubbling water toy found at a novelty store thru a barrowed delay pedal and an old (new then) kaos pad, still has that horror film soundtrack feel, still has that halucainagenic warmth, that deep space spectral muck. FACT013 2xC90 LTD TO 50 COPIES SOLD OUT !
TEETH COLLECTION – “MISUSED GLORY” completely acoustic noise. Main sound sources are bells, banjo, the tumbler from a dryer, springs, small motors, and various other metal objects. Similar to the “Objects of Tape and Metal” sessions, but stripped even further of electronic aid by leaving out the use of tape. One mic in a large room. FACT014 C60 LTD TO 50 COPIES SOLD OUT!
PLASMIC FORMATIONS – “I NOW KNOW, KNOWING NOW”: This release shows Plasmic Formations moving in the direction it has been heading since it’s inception. Mostly influenced (albeit somewhat subconsciously) by watching cult and horror film classics by the likes of Hooper, Romero, Lynch, and Jodorowsky, and a heavy does of psychedelics to fill in the gaps, the vision seems fully realized, sounding somewhat akin to early Tangerine Dream or a synth only Goblin, Plasmic build a tense atmosphere of sound using real time looping, and minimal synth lines, to create rhythmic structured pieces. If you caught Plasmic Formations live on our recent tour, you heard him perform one of these tracks. FACT015 C90 LTD TO 50 COPIES SOLD OUT!
TEETH COLLECTION – “PEPAW – FOR HARLEY DILL”: after my last living grand parent passed away a few years ago, I was bequeathed a banjo, which I have used on these recordings as almost the only sound source in tribute to my late grand father; Harley Dill, a moon shiner from South Carolina who moved to Ohio in the 50’s for a General Motors job. These recordings are completely acoustic, quiet, improvised noise, with a great deal of personal meaning to me, with the banjo having symbolic meanings to my life and the lives of my family. I feel this is one of the most focused works I’ve ever done. FACT016 C40 LTD TO 50 COPIES SOLD OUT!
PLASMIC FORMATIONS / TEETH COLLECTION - 2010 SPACE ODYSSEY TOUR SPLIT/COLLAB: one tape is a split, with plasmic doing his synth drone song pieces and me doing the super quiet acoustic noise set.

FACT004 TEETH COLLECTION "oddities" c40 A collection of random tracks that got bumped off of other releases for time (a 20 + min epic), just never had a home (two 10min + pieces) or just didn’t fit with any other release (a totally fucked up found tape from a hotel). junk yard covers to compliment the junk yard sound. made these for 2009 summer mini tour, edition of 20.

FACT006 TEETH COLLECTION / JOSH LAY 2xC30 Tape one is two sidelong collabs recorded in Nicholasville KY in 08 of doom laden heavy drone, factory scrapes and ghost moans. Tape two is one solo track each. Lay’s side is like scrapping sounds from the insides of a coffin, muffled by a dark cloud of depression and hate. Teeth’s side is a study in anxiety. edition of 50. SOLD OUT!
FACT007 ALISTAIR CROSBIE "the suntrap" c30 Scottish electro-acoustic composer Alistair Crosbie delivers “the suntrap”, a single track that wraps around both sides of the tape with a slowly evolving glacier like drift, the process building up and collapsing in on itself over and over. edition of 30 SOLD OUT!

FACT009 TEETH COLLECTION "objects of metal and tape" c60 all sounds made from amplified metal objects and magnetic tape of prerecorded sounds of amplified metal objects, and a minimal amount of effects and editing were used. Mixing elements of musique-concrete, electro-acoustics, and improv techniques, all of which have been explored on past teeth collection releases, but never brought to the for front as on this release, it also sees bit of a departure from the early industrial / doom drone sound as of releases like “Putridity and Liquecense” edition of 100. SOLD OUT!
FACT010 A SNAKE IN THE GARDEN "hypnocil" c30 Grimeology guy Matt Mayer’s new nightmare! The crumpled, crackling organ drone at the beginning is just to lull you to sleep… then all the things that go bump in the night come out in the form of heavy electronics and feed back systems that peal the skin off yr face. Side B is the epic “Hypnocil”, a slow moving composition of glorious beauty. edition of 30 SOLD OUT!
FACT011 SWAMP HORSE "obsidian" c20 Ky duo of Josh Lay (solo/CADAVER IN DRAG) and Morgan Rankin (GNARLY SHEEN), both of HUSK records fame. In Josh’s words “by far the darkest thing we have released”, a mix of funeral doom, dark synth ambience, and creeping murky bleakness. edition of 30 SOLD OUT!
