7"s-only label established in Gothenburg, Sweden, 2014




AUGUST 27, 2016

Sarah Mary Chadwick 7" available now! Total late summer days back to school soundtrack.
Next 7" is from Sweden and it is at the plant right now and will be out in October.
Fördämning #10 in the works and ready "soon".
New Arv & Miljö LP out now on Förlag För Fri Musik, available here.


SARAH MARY CHADWICK - THIS FITS/THIS IS FAMILIAR 7"
One of the most played albums in the IDDB office of 2015 was Sarah Mary Chadwick's 9 Classic
Tracks (Siltbreeze). On this 7" the Melbourne-based artist gives us two tracks from the same
session as the new album Roses Always Die which was recently released on Rice Is Nice. Two tracks of
just guitar and vocals, stripped down to the bare minimum and driven by an austere ambience.

As always, 200 copies, black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm. (IDDB012)




JUNE 9, 2016

Posset 7" out now!
Stuff from Australia and Sweden is coming next.
Also available: Fördämning #9.


POSSET 7"
Two new tracks from the Newcastle-based improvisor Joe Murray and his Posset, known
from releases on Mantile, Chocolate Monk, No Basement Is Deep Enough and more.
'Fanzine Ink Dries Like Black Blood' was recorded on 9th Jan 2016 at BOOKSHOP in Sunderland
City Library. Mainly mainly made up of vocal-jaxx loops, dry breath and child chatter.
It's the final four minutes of a longer live jam. No overdumps! 'Slurpy Slurpy
Creep Creep' is the relentless squelching from a wet mouth that's been physically
spliced into cranky tape. An improvisation. An exploration of sharp pencil tap
and wickedly pinched spools.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm. (IDDB011)




APRIL 15, 2016

New seveninch out today!
One more before the summer.
Fördämning #9? Soon.


LEDA - CITY/CLEAR7"
The two-song vinyl debut from Sofie Herner, the younger half of the Malmö/Gothenburg
duo Neutral, following up a fairly unheard cassette released on Ingen Våg in 2014.
The A-side cut wouldn't have been completely out of place on a Root Don Lonie For Cash
lathe cut from the 90's, but the underlying heaviness and overall psychedelic
guitar/synth blur blasted through a shitty amplifier totally sets it apart. Flip
the vinyl and find a sort of fragile take on kosmische musik, straight from the
Utmarken elementary school. Japanese whispers. A homespun scorcher and a completely
unique voice in the Swedish underground. Recorded at the IDDB headquarters spring 2014.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached,
stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm. (IDDB010)



FEBRUARY 24, 2016

Charcoal Owls!
IDDB010 and IDDB011 at the plant. More Sweden, more UK.
New issue of Fördämning out in a month or two.


CHARCOAL OWLS - KID BROTHER 7"
The duo of Russell Walker and Tom James Scott follows up the Coventry Campbell CS
from 2015 with two new tracks. A splendid, minimalistic mixture of post-Savoury
Days UK DIY slow motion pop through shimmering organ melodies, sparse drumming, piano
and field recordings, with a sense of melancholia sort of recognizable
from Tom James Scott solo recordings but at the same time not at all. Everything
unified with the unmistakable vocals of Russell Walker, covering
Navinder Singh Sarao and whatnot.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 33rpm. Mastered by Viktor Ottosson. (IDDB009)



JANUARY 22, 2016

A new 7" out now and another two at the plant.


ARV & MILJÖ 7"
An ode to Gothenburg. Ten minutes focusing almost entirely on the sounds
of seagulls and rain, with only tiny hints of the troubled A&M past. Recordings
from a window, July 2015. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 33rpm. (IDDB008)



OCTOBER 28, 2015

The Dead Seee 7" is indeed sold out but should still be available from
Fusetron, Metamkine, Penultimate Press and a few other places. Last handful of copes
of the Idea Fire Company and No Intention 7"s too so now is the time.
IDDB008 and IDDB009 at the plant and will both be done early 2016.
Fördämning #8 is taking shape, deadline for review stuff is November 30th. Over and out.



SEPTEMBER 26, 2015

Autumn breeze! The Dead C - Palisades 7" out now.



THE DEAD C - PALISADES 7"
This single by New Zealand’s most overly-prolific trio is taken from the sessions for
their upcoming double LP on Ba Da Bing. Forthcoming non-selections recorded live in an
empty bar in Port Chalmers, and produced by the band as all their records are. Nothing much changes
in the Dead C’s world, it just all happens again and again in the same way. Who could ask for more?

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm. (IDDB007)



AUGUST 17, 2015

Summer's gone. Krube. 7" out now! Full info below.
Fördämning #7 available too, featuring Corpus
Hermeticum, Penultimate Press and Massimo Toniutti.
IDDB007 at the plant and out within the next 2 months.



KRUBE. 7"
Untitled two-tracker from Berlin's Krube, following up releases on labels such as Hrönir and
Fragment Factory. A step even further into oblivion, exploring unknown territories via
daunting everyday life recordings and electronic slices of nothing and everything.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Mastered by Viktor Ottosson. Plays at 45rpm. (IDDB006)



MAY 5, 2015

A new 7" is out now! Next one at the plant, to be
released this summer. Also available now is Fördämning #6.



RODGER STELLA - THE FINAL PROGRAMME 7"
Two prime cuts of intense noise bliss from Rodger Stella, sort of in the vein of some One Dark Eye
stuff with a psychedelic twist slightly reminiscent of C.C.C.C. Stuff flies out of everywhere.

200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped
white labels, insert. Plays at 33 1/3rpm. (IDDB005)



JANUARY 2, 2015

Two new IDDB 7"s available now.
Issue 5 of Fördämning is hot off the presses too.



KOSTIS KILYMIS - CRYSTAL DROPS/GROUND LOOPS 7"
Kostis Kilymis is a sound artist based in London, UK. This 7" contains new material
following two cassette releases for Mazurka Editions and Hideous Replica. Two tracks
recorded at home and outside in 2014 using circuits, pulses and wind
noise - one a bit rhythmic, the other less so.

Mastered by A.F. Jones at Laminal Audio. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard
sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 33 1/3rpm. (IDDB004)


LEA BERTUCCI - LIGHT SILENCE, DARK SPEECH 7"
Lea Bertucci's debut album Resonance Shapes LP from 2013 is an overlooked gem that
caused a small stir at the IDDB office. On this much more stripped down affair
the New York-based artist changed her bass clarinet for an old alto sax and the two
cuts delivered here are somewhat different, but just as intimate and perplexing.
10 mesmerizing minutes that owes just as much to free jazz skronk
as it does to contemporary sound art.

Mastered by Viktor Ottosson. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve
with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 33 1/3rpm. (IDDB003)



AUGUST 2, 2014

More plastic. First two IDDB releases ready to be ordered,
played and adored. A crusade for good taste.
1 euro per inch. Lots of 7"s in the works.
Free 1" buttons with all initial orders.



IDEA FIRE COMPANY - THE LABORATORY 7"
2013 marked the 25th anniversary of Idea Fire Company, the duo of Scott Foust and Karla Borecky
based in Amherst, Massachusetts. Right before the end of the year The Laboratory EP was
recorded. Two tracks of icy synth work, at times sort of reminiscent of parts of the
Anti-Natural LP from 1999, but this probably being the most stripped down and monotonous material
you will be able to find in the splendid discography of Idea Fire Company.

Mastered by Zupe. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with
postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 33 1/3rpm. (IDDB001)


NO INTENTION - GOOD INTENTIONS/MATERIAL DILEMMA 7"
Sound poetry/tape music from Allen Mozek/Good Area, following up the Debris Music CS
released on Vitrine in 2013. Recorded at home, early 2014 in Philadelphia, PA.

Side A plays at 45rpm, Side B at 33 1/3rpm.
200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard
attached, stamped white labels, insert. (IDDB002)
