Cristopher Cichocki Desert Drone Cycle // Cassette / Digital
Cristopher Cichocki is an interdisciplinary artist from the Coachella Valley, with an extensive body of work that examines transmorphic cycles of decay and renewal. On one level, Cichocki’s sound research and experimental applications highlight the complexities around land use management when humanity encroaches upon sensitive environments. And on another, it stands as a harrowing document of isolationist composition paralleling that of Thomas Köner, Deathprod, Alan Lamb, and BJ Nilsen.
Junkie Flamingos Lemegeton Party // LP / Digital Lemegeton Party is the narcotic and occluded industrial-ambient debut for the Junkie Flamingos, a project conceived in 2017 by Luca Sigurtà, Alice Kundalini, and Daniele Delogu. Each of these musicians has their distinctive sounds: Sigurtà with his vertiginous electronica, Kundalini best known as the author behind the death industrial project She Spread Sorrow, and Delogu in the bombastic folk of the Barbarian Pipe Band. Their collective amalgamation shifts but does not denude each of these aesthetics in the construction of this oblique, sidereal album.
Bloom Offering Episodes // LP / Digital
Bloom Offering is the synth-wave / blighted electronic project of Seattle’s Nicole Carr, who has steadily honed her abilities in sculpting sharply cold electronics and declarative vocals set upon propulsive spines of whipcrack snares and throttled kick drums. This refinement and culmination of those motifs emerges as a compulsive communion with bleak noise, dark-eyed melody, controlled rhythm, cathartic release and emotional drainage. For ancillary listening references, Chris & Cosey, Lebanon Hanover, DVA Damas, and the rhythmic facets of Janushoved might of use.
Ekin Fil Maps // LP / Digital
Our fourth production with Ekin, Maps quietly continues her complex dream-pop compositions, following her very well received Ghosts Inside LP as well as the acclaimed soundtrack to Inflame. The saddest songs of The Durutti Column excised of rhythm and those few plunges into sorrow by Harold Budd make for apt comparisons to Maps, in addition to the drone-on classics of Grouper, Slowdive, and Sarah Davachi.

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, amongst other purveyors of the MP3.
