We will be releasing a highly limited cassette of Carine Masutti's "Of The Glowing Mud" album in March of 2014. The album bristles with uncompromising sonic experimentalism and howls with mystery and faded voyeurism. Check out the sample track on our SoundCloud page and stay tuned for more release info.
We are currently working on a new release for Barge....hopefully hitting the streets in March! Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, head over to Northern Plastics and check out some of our distributed items. We scour the depths searching for the coolest records, tapes and CDs on offer. It's a multi-genre, thoughtfully selected affair for the heads. So if you're looking for some new sounds in 2014 NP + Barge got yer back!
If you haven't sorted out any NYE plans and you're in the Boston area we strongly recommend heading over to the Hynes Convention Center for the Animal Hospital Ensemble show. Our own Ian Lawrence will be providing pre/post performance music via two turntable and a bunch of weird records. No doubt this will be a great night of music and a memorable way to ring in the new year. Details here.
Animal Hospital Ensemble will be playing at the Hynes Convention Center on New Years Eve in Boston. Ian will be playing records at the event. More to follow but initial details below...
We are moving our Cambridge HQ and so to celebrate (and to lighten the load a bit) we are having a huge Barge Recordings catalog sale. 40% off the entire catalog!!! Now is the time to pick up any releases you may have missed over the years. Head over to Northern Plastics to get in on the savings. While you're there we are having a 15% off store wide sale as well. I'd say this is a good time to buy some records!
Spectral Rehab Presents will be picking back up next week Monday May 20th at the Lily Pad in Cambridge, MA. Killer line-up including Concern, Work/Death and High Aura'd with John Twells and myself playing records throughout the night. Come wash off your Monday with a delightfully brutal aural rinse. OH....and Lily Pad has BEER now.
It's been a LONG time since we've done any kind of stylistic upgrades to the Barge website. We've redesigned and simplified the site down to it's bare essentials. Hopefully it'll be a cleaner and leaner browsing experience. Look forward to more information regarding Barge releases and related events. Since our catalog is handled by Northern Plastics now we've gone ahead and linked straight to the NP/Barge page on the Northern Plastic site.
