Listen: ETRC - The Obsidian Was Like Touching Lips

A micro-label called End of the Alphabet Records, dealing in locally and internationally produced experimental music, is being launched from the capital city. Helmed by Wellington musician Noel Meek, the label is poised to unveil its first release next month - a compilation titled NoFi Rainbow Vol. 1, which is packed with tracks from noise and drone artists. Meek says the musicians range from "lo-fi godfather Bruce Russell (The Dead C) to young noise-beat innovator, Mischancerie, and offers a curated snapshot of the local scene". One of the lesser-known names who will be included is solo artist ETRC, who Meek says represents a younger generation of artists on the compilation. His track 'The Obsidian Was Like Touching Lips' is a meeting of natural and industrial sounds, captured using an old school four-track tape recorder. Listen below...

NoFi Rainbow Vol. 1 will be available on cassette, CD and download from Saturday 13th September through End of the Alphabet Records and features Our Love Will Destroy the World (Campbell Kneale), Bruce Russell and Peter Wright, i.ryoko, Antony Milton, Shannon Reed, Mischancerie, Noel Meek and Oona Verse.

The album artwork (pictured above) was created by Campbell Kneale.
