|Dear friends of Bleak,
it’s been a while since our last newsletter, but now we have exciting news for you!
|Our dear friends Cultural Amnesia have another release on Bleak, “Agile Business Practices“, a four-track EP that shows yet another aspect of CA’s broad artistic spectrum.
Included with the free download are two videos, one for their track Core Values, and … well, you better watch yourself 😉
Read about it and download as MP3 or FLAC package here: http://bleak.at/bleak058
|Out since July, Radio Pulso by Durán Vázquez, an excellent piece of experimental industrial dub.
Born in Vigo on 1979, Durán Vázquez started recording at the beginning of 1998, using self-taught methods and without prior musical formation. His work is mainly focused on audio creation, radio-art and live performances.
Occasionally he composed pieces for cinema, sound-art contests, audio collaborations and his own video-art productions.

|In June, we released Cultural Amnesia‘s Ring The Hungry Bell EP, for the first time in digital format.
Ring The Hungry Bell comprises four tracks recorded 1982/3. They are taken from the double album of 1980s material Press My Hungry Button, now available at CA’s Bandcamp.
The EP comes with a video for the track ‘Hot in the house’, written for CA by John Balance. The video features mailart and other images by Balance.

|Earlier this year we released a compilation of material from Expose Your Eyes, who also contributed to the infamous White Stained Covers tape we re-released together with [aufnahme + wiedergabe].
Paul Harrison has collaborated with many other musicians over the years but now, apart from contributions to some forthcoming S&Q stuff, is ploughing most of his energies into his own personal psychedelic powerhouse.
|With the upcoming release by Fear Incorporated, Cloak And Dagger, we are entering a new realm for Bleak that could maybe be described as dark cabaret, we are quite excited about releasing the full album after the Sweeney Todd EP last Halloween.|
|And last but not least we still have vinyl copies from Konstruktivists‘ amazing Destiny Drive release from last year, get it from the Bleak Store at http://bleak.at/index.php?menu=cart – we also have some distribution items as well as some quite special single items.|
In case you didn’t know, Bleak has a 24/7 radio station with ever changing program, have a listen at
Have a great summer,

The new album by Swiss producer Francisco Meirino, titled “Surrender, Render, End” (released on 24th June by The Helen Scarsdale Agency), has been described as “an electro-acoustic dialectic, unremittingly engaged in a pugilist conflict between art and accident”, whose numerous, fleetingly abstract allusions are matched to “fragments of a nightmare that linger days after”.
