AOR017 ANNA VO – SHE CONTINUES TO FAIL

My new album finally got pressed and released on cassette, and recently came across this video I knew nothing about that a video artist/musician made:

You can get gold and bronze A0 screenprints of the cover art on black card sent from Berlin:

Anyway, it was recorded near the Berlin Wall in the building Bowie recorded his Berlin trilogy, and Eno and David Byrne and a bunch of other rad doods recorded. So that was pretty cool.

AOR018 FATPL ASTIK – ST4TIK

The cassettes finally arrived in the mail!! A few months after their release date, but better late than never. Jett, queer artist from New Orleans releases their debut album on An Out recordings, and hell yesss. Beautiful textural ambient awesomeness. Can’t wait to see them play live 🙂

AOR019 RVNES + MASS - ALL MEN ARE PREY TO THE SAME BEAST LP cover art

AOR019 RVNES & MASS collab 12″ LP

MASS from Northern England is the shit, and so is RVNES from Berlin. Here they are together in a freakin beautiful package.

AOR021 MOLOCH - DIE ISOLATION cs cover art

AOR021 MOLOCH – DIE ISOLATION cs
Moloch is from the Ukraine, and as a result I can’t mail physical copies of his own album to him at the moment, unless it is with Global Express. If people haven’t heard about what is happening on the border of the Ukraine and Russia, look it up. Anyway, Moloch is a wretched black metal feast for the senses. I’m excited to be able to give this a US release and distribution.

AOR022 EXPURGATORY - X cs cover art

AOR022 EXPURGATORY – X cs

Librarians from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, inspired by the likes of Wold, Urfaust, and Bone Awl. They are proudly left-wing, and wholeheartedly embrace the lo-fi DIY freedom that black metal provides, despite its various communities trying to hide it beneath a veil of elitism.

The launch in Melbourne, Australia is https://m.facebook.com/events/1380925798875593/

AOR023 - RAGANA 12" LP cover art

AOR023 RAGANA 12″ LP coming in June!!!!!!!!!!

Ragana are a mindblowing queer lady doom band from Oakland, CA, USA.
12″ LP will be released for their Summer Tour of 2015.

AOR024 HREINN cover art

AOR024 HREINN – s/t cs soon after. Will be ready for shows later this year.

Releases on An Out Recordings

 amended cover

http://anout.bandcamp.com/

AN OUT RECORDINGS, along with being an ethical, anarchist label, has always made an effort to release more projects from women, people of colour and queer people, which has meant releasing projects that are sometimes less well-known, or less established than others on the label roster. AN OUT tries to curate a rotating mix between doom, black metal, harsh noise and drone, and asks fans to check out stuff from the label that they might not have heard before, to support upcoming artists. Feel free to ask any questions about any of the roster. Always open to submissions from thoughtful, brutal, political projects.
