Welcome to the Helen Scarsdale Agency.

Our first production comes by way of the Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, the cryptic ensemble from the American Midwest who have never failed to entrance us with their post-industrial reconstructions of exhumed tape and mildewed 35mm film stock. We are delight to announce the forthcoming release of August 53rd, which Fossil Aerosol qualifies as a prequel to the much acclaimed The Day 1982 Contaminated 1971 album from 2016. Yes, there are a lot of dates there to consider.

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
August 53rd // LP/ Digital
release date : February 23, 2018

Recently published:

Stelzer/Murray Connector // Cassette / Digital
Stelzer/Murray is the duo of Brendan Murray and Howard Stelzer, two stalwarts of the Boston noise / experimental scene over the past two decades. Through destroyed tape and long-view compositional strategies, the two manifest an irradiated, almost Kirlian glow through Connector's slow accretions and erosions amidst the soaring crescendos of compacted tone and vacant shadows of mechanical thrum.

Ekin Fil
Inflame OST // Cassette / Digital
Istanbul's drone-pop producer Ekin Fil turns her sites to the big screen for the first soundtrack in her impressive catalogue of recordings. Less informed by the retro-garde aesthetics of Carpenter and Argento, the spectral electronics of Inflame's soundtack finds its neighbors in the skeletal sprawl of Raime and the darker ambient propositions sponsored by Posh Isolation.

Kate Carr The Story Surrounds Us // Cassette / Digital
Australian Kate Carr melds the exquisite details of her field recordings with an ephemeral approach to the song. Emblematic of her work is a gentle dislocation between the environmental sounds and her drone-dub ellipses of somnambulant melody. Look to Carla dal Forno, Alan Lamb and those moments of clarity in the shapeshifting ethos from Jewelled Antler for neighboring sounds to Carr's chimerical compositions.

Fossil Aerorol Mining Project
The Unlistening Place // CD
Fossil Aerosol Mining Project are an enigmatic lot, comprised of sonic archeologists residing the American Midwest. Their work spans several decades and is almost always in flux through the variable states of contextual re-investigation and technological degradation. Aesthetically, FAMP align with the post-industrial research of :zoviet*france:, Cranioclast and Robert Turman.

Ekin Fil Ghosts Inside // LP / Digital
Ekin Fil is the acclaimed drone-pop chanteuse working with the sparest of materials in her ethereal, shoegaze deconstructions. Ghosts Inside stands as her most arresting recordings to date, written during a period of personal despair with an oblique poetry of sadness cascading through the songs. It's an introspective sound, completely turned in on itself and tuning out the socio-political tumult of her native home in Istanbul.

Distributors and retail outlets are welcome to contact the agency if interested in directly buying from the Agency; and a full list of our current distributors can be found here.

We highly recommend that customers outside the North America make their purchases from these distributors, as the shipping costs have gone up dramatically for first class and priority to cross the border of the United States. In 2016, the rate increase was on average 21%. We cannot incur losses for this increase, and unfortunately this gets passed onto our beloved customers. If the shipping calculator through Paypal (which has always been a very blunt tool) over charges you, we will refund the difference upon calculating the exact price. If the shipping calculator under represents the cost, we may ask for an addition charge to cover the shipping. We do apologize; and again, we highly recommend you contacting any of our distributors to inquire about our products.

Digital distribution is also available through Bandcamp, iTunes, Midheaven, Boomkat, and emusic, amongst other purveyors of the MP3.
