celebrating five years of decorative stamp

how time races by indeed, and how strange a path it is. still, with a dear gladness in our hearts we can indeed reveal that decorative stamp is now celebrating its fifth year of existence. although we do not have an official birth date for this curious enterprise, we can safely say that by these summer moons we are very definitely celebrating such a milestone on the path.

so, might we simply extend a wildly-vast thank you to every single one of you who has helped us along our merry way, whether it be helping to book a show or being in attendance at a show, offering to help sell our releases or graciously purchasing them, saying a kind word or two, letting us sleep on your floors, generally showing enthusiasm in the direction of our antics, be it words between friends or lines on blogs and web pages... we are truly grateful indeed.

we shall naturally be endevouring to mark the occasion by sharing with you all as many undiscovered treats from the archives that we can lay our hands on, perhaps a few exclusive lost tracks and the like, perhaps even some small interviews with some of our merry bunch. so, please do keep your eyes open for some unexpected delights in the coming weeks, and please do help us continue to spread the word as far and wide as possible.

all the love

jamesreindeer - landscape eternal - out now

might we gladly present landscape eternal, the second spoken-word release from our very own commander-in-chief jamesreindeer. collecting together sixteen pieces, woven seamlessly together as a whole, jamesreindeer takes us on a brief journey through distant lands, evoking moods of eerie unease and foreboding amidst a psychedelic landscape of strange sights and sounds. 

the release also contains a twenty-minute ambient soundpiece to accompany the spoken-word selections, to be used in conjunction with the words or as its own separate entity. a darkened drone-piece that crackles and moans under its own weight, and certainly a fitting companion to the ominous lines. now available for digital download and as an ultra-limited edition hand-crafed cd. get involved.

keep safe
