Sean McCann starts new record label Recital

Acoustic drone dude Sean McCann has started his own record label, Recital, to release what he describes as "more focused, lasting music". Recital was launched in January, and the first three records are now available. McCann says he'll be mainly releasing CDs and LPs. There will be a digital store, although the details are not yet finalised.

Following an initial CD-R release (catalogue number 00), the first 'official' release from the label is McCann collaborating with Matthew Sullivan. Vanity Fair is their second release as a duo, the first on Sullivan's own label Ekhein. It will be released on vinyl, and limited copies will come with a CD-R. The two other initial releases on the label are Micromegas by Radiant Husk and Evening Song Awaken by Troy Schafer. Listen to a track by McCann and Sullivan below.
