Kane Software
dda666

Kane Software’s resident saxophonist and Don’t Drone Alone’s resident pen-pusher is a certain Robin Smith former dogsbody for Norman Records™  - writer of about a billion of these blurbs over the years.  Robin - and your fellow partner-in-Kane Matthew, for that matter - I’m not gonna give it to you how you want. No, I’m not. I’m not gonna spend the whole description referring to your band as Harry Kane Software or wondering why it doesn't sound like Travis. You see, this cassette, full of screeching drones and ghoulish digital meltdowns, is very good value at £4.99. However, we think they have missed a trick at not pricing it at £6.66.

Hoof Glove
Hoof Glove

Leeds grind skronk! Messily textured and compassionately crafted, the band Hoof Glove offer their first smattering of tunes for the don't drone alone label. Featuring members from a plethora of local hardcore and doom bands (including Hex, the Afternoon Gentlemen and Groak), their mix of surfy riffs, disaster electronics and heavily processed vocal yelps combine into an incredible set of weird, weird songs.

Talbot Fade
My Voice Would Reach You

The ambient alias of Local Action affiliate Yamaneko, this release sees Talbot Fade offer an hour-long homage to motherhood through soundscaping both earthy and astral. Named after an installation by artist Meiro Koizumi detailing a son grieving for his mother, My Voice Would Reach You is still as a landscape painting -- and yet never far from total collapse. The descendent chaos of the record is in turns beautiful and nightmarish, much like the From Software video games that influenced it.

Chrissie
From the Carboniferous

This new tape from don't drone alone is courtesy of Chrissie Caulfield (Helicopter Quartet, CSMA), an experimental violinist & synthbarbler based in our hometown of Leeds, Yorkshire. Inspired by a local quarry and played in one single take, the 30-minute A side veers from fragile string slicings to monolithic chunks of FX-drizzled sound and back. A synth ode to Blade Runner on the B side concludes things. Limited run of 50 !

Add Red

The Don’t Drone Alone label makes a long-awaited return with their second release, an intriguing realisation of a Michael Pisaro score by sad_rave. Add Red mixes field recordings of club scenes with precisely tuned sine waves and plain synth interjections, knitting together an abstract sound-narrative that’ll entice and beguile. Limited edition of fifty cassettes on Don’t Drone Alone.
