Each record is carefully curated, designed, and packaged with unique goodies; a musical metamorphosis ready to flutter its wings, and send ripples from the North East of England across the rest of the world.
The Black Sheep Frederick Dickens
The legacy of a man who threw it all away.
TBSFD's dark and cinematic soundscapes combined with unhinged, baritone vocals, conceptualise the life and legacy of Charles Dickens' wastrel brother. They take a tragic story filled with darkness and despair and use it as a metaphor for the modern day.

Ceiling Demons - Nil
A narrative album riddled with dualities, Nil explores the light and dark in themes of nature and an all-or-nothing view of existence. Marching through the ups and downs, the dreams and nightmares, it is a record that searches the void to find it masked by opposites, where all can be found in nothing.
Pressed onto beautiful black & white splatter vinyl, and paired with a collection special prints, stickers, and other bits and bobs.
Profits from this release will be contributed to Teesside-based charity, Men Tell Health.

One Sided Horse - Between Light & Space
Featuring four members of the band Embrace, this release offers the listener eight tracks of beautiful soundscapes and epic arrangements.
Likened to to Nick Cave, The National and Leonard Cohen, yet with a still unique style and emotional vocals. Described as songs for people who have lost and found love in equal measures; this album will not disappoint.
Produced by Mickey Dale, who also added inspired orchestral arrangements, the album has become a favourite listen to many people who have heard it.

Veil - Memory Box
Memory Box was inspired by one person's collection of physical memories passed down through letters, photos and trinkets stored in boxes and tins. The album features warped and augmented soundscapes created using music boxes, field recordings, spoken word, and stringed instruments played in all manner of unorthodox ways; the haunting soundtrack for a film that is yet to be created.
Released on May 23rd 2019
