A re-release of Land & Buildings' early album Hibiscus, that's "Equal parts isolated mountain music, minimalist composition breezes and Zuckerzeit-era Cluster, these songs sound very much like the seedlings they are."

Released on Life Like.

Anyone who's followed Antiquated Future knows we love weirdo spoken word music. From Tapestry to Aboriginal Flowers to Hecka Ar, we've carried and released albums that push the bounds of music and poetry since the get-go. That's why we're thrilled to carry the new release from Emily Roll that continues the wild, graphic word-art that she's been until-now making under the name Haunted.

Released on Life Like.

Two vastly different takes on what ambient synth music can sound like. 

Released on Life Like.

High-quality experimental mood pieces for trumpet, violin, synthesizer, drum machine, and flute. 

Released on Life Like. Listen on Bandcamp.

The new LP from Portland duo Lore City. Weighted and ethereal, heavy and light. Reminiscent of classic 4AD artists like Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, and This Mortal Coil. Add in the more psych side of Mazzy Star, and you might have Alchemical Task.

The newest zine from Nomadic Youth, a London-based DIY youth project that provides free pop-up activities to teenagers across the city and supports youth activism and mutual aid. This small art zine celebrates Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement with 11 pieces of art by young people of color and/or young people who are LGBT+. 

20 pages, full-color, quarter-size. Comes with free sticker.

In How Are You?, Moe Bowstern reviews cancer. What comes out of these "reviews" is a tale of being changed—feeling different on a fundamental level and not being able to explain it to anyone. The zine is real, sad, hilarious, and wise as all hell. 

"One of the more exciting experiences we can have as human beings is almost dying," Moe writes. "Brushes with death don't need to be all that close to have a tremendous impact on our psyches, reminding us the close line we walk between the worlds at all times. A cancer diagnosis that comes somewhat out of the blue from a routine mammogram—perhaps the very first mammogram that one has in one's life—is a brush with death with no actual basis in a reality of death."

28 pages, half-letter size. Free to people experiencing cancer; contact us if you'd like one. 

Range drags the queerness of the frontier out from between the lines of Louis L’Amour’s cowboy story Lonely on the Mountain. Through a series of erasure poems, a dusty free-box Western novel is transformed. Range is playful, sexy, hilarious, and at times somehow transcendent, otherworldly, glorious. 

40 pages, half-letter size, text & illustrations. Cover colors vary. 

Instrument combines color photography, personal biography and gripping, restless poetry into a unique melding of literature and art. 

The companion book to her Antiquated Future Records release Traveler's Ode

165 pages, large trade paperback.

Dao Strom’s Traveler’s Ode is an interwoven series of textured, ethereal song-poems. Atmospheric yet weighted, minimalist yet lush, the album combines voice, electronics, piano, guitars, and field recordings from sources such as rivers, sea, jungle, and birds to create a deeply emotive song-cycle that explores themes of displacement, diaspora, and hauntings.

Echoing the work of artists like Tara Jane O'Neil, Grouper, Black Belt Eagle Scout, and Tiny Vipers. Released in conversation with her hybrid poetry-art book, Instrument, on Fonograf Editions.

Released on Antiquated Future Records and Fonograf Editions. The first printing with reversible J-card. Listen on Bandcamp.
