2014 Record Store Day release. Comes with large poster and limited to 1,000 copies.

In Utero, in Tribute, in Entirety is a tribute album to Nirvana’s 1993 third and final album, In Utero, by various artists. The album will be released through Robotic Empire on April 15, 2014, and an exclusive version will be released for Record Store Day on April 19, 2014. The compilation, which represents Robotic Empire’s 100th release overall and 15th anniversary as a business, took over 7 years to make because of “extended delays and legal wrangling.” In the time it took to make the album, Jay Reatard died and These Arms Are Snakes, Thursday and Daughters disbanded (though the latter reformed shortly before the release), making their contributions some of the last music they recorded. An unmastered version of Jay Reatard’s “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle” leaked online a few years prior to the official release of the album.

About the release and the history of the label, Robotic Empire’s head Andy Low said: “It has been a privilege to introduce so many unique bands to like-minded freaks over the past 15 years. Looking back at what’s transpired almost seems unreal, and even with a shameful carbon footprint of many thousand plastic circles — I can safely say that it has been an honor to work with the artists we have, and a hearty thank you is due to all who’ve listened thus far. I genuinely hope you’ll enjoy this tribute to one of the bands who first showed me the strange side of music. Nirvana was truly one of the greats, and we’ve done our best to craft an appropriate homage to so many people’s all-time favorite band.”

All songs written and composed by Kurt Cobain, except where noted.

12”/digital out on Erased Tapes/Kranky (US) on April 28, 2013

Erased Tapes and Kranky are pleased to announce the release of A Winged Victory for the Sullen’s ’ATOMOS VII’. It’s the first installment leading up to the release of the second full length studio album ‘ATOMOS’, and score for choreographer Wayne McGregor’s long form dance piece. 

McGregor was heavily influenced by the duo’s 2011 self-titled debut, playing it repeatedly during practices with his core group of dancers. After noticing the group’s reaction with the music, he contacted Adam & Dustin to see if they could write the score for his new oeuvre. 

The duo recorded more than sixty minutes of music over a four month period during the summer of 2013 in Brussels, Berlin, and Reykjavik, with the help of their longtime collaborative sound engineer Francesco Donadello. This EP also sees the involvement of Ben Frost, who composed McGregors previous work ‘Far’. 

“While we were re-amping guitars at Greenhouse studios, Ben expressed interest and admiration in the sounds we had created. We were planning for the B side to be a metamorphosis of part VII, and Ben seemed the obvious choice. With the multi-tracks transformed, it follows a trajectory that we had not felt comfortable with before, but with Ben’s involvement and influence, it was a painless entrance to this crooked, distorted world.” - Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie

“We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us 2 years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, and let go. It was incredibly liberating.” - Dustin O’Halloran

McGregor, mastermind behind the Random Dance Company, and resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet since 2006, and is known in popular culture circles for serving as movement director for the film, ‘Harry Potter’ and the ‘Goblet of Fire’. He has also choreographed the Radiohead video ‘Lotus Flower’ and ‘Ingenue’ by Atoms for Peace.
