> Podcast 01

Our first podcast went live an hour ago.
‘On Becoming Invisible’ is a 70 minute exploration of drone, dark-ambient and post rock, blended together by Dundee-based artist Erstlaub who will be releasing new music with us in the next few months.

It’s pretty amazing stuff. Check the podcast link and get stuck in.
Next podcast is from label head TVO and should be here in a couple of weeks…

> Introducing Broken20

hello
welcome to Broken20.

Broken20 is a new label from ruaridhTVO, with assistance from production unit and erstlaub

Broken20 will release all sorts of music. Rather than be genre-tied, we will be releasing music rooted in a particular aesthetic – releases concerned with decay, erosion, entropy, mistakes and errors, line noise and tape hiss, hum and buzz.

We’ll primarily be a digital download label, although there will be forays into highly limited cd- and dvd-r variants of our releases. We hope to eventually release some vinyl editions.
