{New Single} A Reason (To Be Alive) – Attasalina

“Hauntingly Beautiful”

A Reason (To Be Alive)
– Attasalina

A Reason (To Be Alive) speaks to a journey that the artist must undertake in order to arrive at a pre-ordained destination. From existing in feeling of monotonous disorientation to finding a place in the world and transforming to a sense of belonging in one’s own life.

An eerie piano introduces a sense of premonition while layers of psychedelic guitar carry us through to the uplifting finale. Attasalina’s signature style fuses acoustic and electric instrumentation with electronica influences while her lush, smokey voice takes us on her poetic adventure.

{Patreon Launch} Attasalina is Creating…


A Record, Book and Map

Freed From Rage and Sorrow is a musical album and photography book in the making. Inspired by death and realization, this work documents a life long journey toward understanding and recovery, revealing the inner process reflected in the outer world. Through subconscious voices, sending coded messages, speaking in poetry and images, the self is lead to discovering what is real. And in so doing, builds a bridge back to wholeness.

{New Album Release} Black Needle Noise – Before The Tears Came – Colored Vinyl

While the term “legend” is often bestowed quite liberally these days, few would argue that producer/artist JOHN FRYER carries that title quite appropriately.

With a musical fingerprint that shaped the sounds of labels 4AD, Mute, Rough Trade and Beggars Banquet and bands as seminal as Cocteau Twins, Nine Inch Nails, HIM, Yaz, and Depeche Mode, John Fryer has been the sonic architect for four decades of alternative music. Currently masterminding the new artist collective BLACK NEEDLE NOISE (like the iconic supergroup of sorts, This Mortal Coil, which he was co-founder), Fryer is creating a whole new direction for alternative music to forge ahead.
