2016 in retrospective

Another exciting year has passed for The Weevil Neighbourhood.

We kicked off the year with the first non-musical release in April, an untitled 2-colour Risograph print on found paper by Lee Noble (cat. name FROST). Lee has been responsible for the majority of sleeve artwork for the label since 2013, so most of you guys are already familiar with his graphical work.
This is most likely to be the last Risograph piece by Lee for a while since he sold his machine after printing the edition.

2016 was also the year where we decided to reissue out of stock releases from the label’s catalogue, starting with “LR EP” by Steven Porter from 2011 as well as Repetition/Distract’s “salles des perdus” LP, which was originally released in 2012. The reissues come on black vinyl in a sturdy brown cardboard discobag, hand-stamped and -numbered in editions of 150 and 100 copies.
We plan on repressing more of the label’s catalogue in 2017, certainly interesting for those of you, who just got familiar with The Weevil Neighbourhood and/or missed out on the earlier releases.

In September we were massively happy to add SPR to the label roster with his third solo work after two EPs on V I S and JSME Records. “Tesselation Districts” (cat. name COLONY) is a four tracker of experiments in quasi- and anti-rhythmical music from the Hamburg based artist and producer, somewhere “between messed-up dance music and outright fucked-up electronic abstraction” (Norman Records) – and also one of the more controversially discussed releases on The Weevil Neighbourhood. Oh, and obviously, Lee Noble did the artwork for the release.
Btw.: If you’re in Hamburg on the 31st of January, you will have the chance to witness one of SPR’s live sets at Astra Stube.

Thank you for all your support in 2016. I’ll be in touch with more news and information in the near future. Until then, take care!
