In celebration of Dark Entries' 5th Year Anniversary, the San Francisco avante-art, experimental, dance and noise label is re-issuing a trio of releases in early July, most notably in the mix is Philly's own entry, "Executive Slacks" and their s/t EP from 1983. The label's plan to reissue the aforementioned, a trio of releases among which also includes Australia's Severed Heads, and (Cult of) Xymox is timely and should be noted; if not for originality in sound and inspiration (Executive Slacks can count luminaries like LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy among fans), then for those projects' legendary and continuing relevance today and into the future.
Each monthly reissue of greats has been hand-picked by the label under the moniker of Dark Entries Editions label (and with care). Items have been remastered and the artwork crafted with either silkscreened covers, expanded liner notes, or simply engaging and renewed graphic accompanying packaging to embody the feeling that the band or release itself is something really special and to be celebrated. We've included links to this month's preview of releases below, as well as more information on the upcoming tour with current roster artists.
Dark Entries celebrates with a label-based tour in conjunction with their 5th anniversary which will feature current acts. The tour, including alums REDREDRED (whose debut album is out now on DE), Bezier, Max+Mara and label founder Josh Cheon, begins July 17th in San Francisco, and will eventually make its way to Philly when on July 28th it is slated for the new upstairs live performance venue Bourbon & Branch.
