Spatial Relation - Beyond The Zero

Peripheral Minimal is proud to present Beyond the Zero, the highly anticipated debut album by Brooklyn-based duo Spatial Relation.

Through word of mouth, the band has built up an international fan base in the past few years. Interest has come largely from appearances on seminal European compilations such as the TSM series produced by The Scrap Mag (Spain) and Until the Sun Grows Cold from Vocoder Tapes (England). Spatial Relation’s cassette EP Thoughtcrime also was released last year by Infravox Records (Peru), and this was preceded by a split seven-inch single with the artist Xiu on Peripheral Minimal in 2013.

The eight songs that make up Beyond the Zero were produced, recorded, and mixed in the band’s home studio from 2012 to 2014. In addition to new titles such as the stand-out singles “Tacit Knowledge” and “Phantoms of the Future,” the album includes the cult hit “Contour Lines,” which helped launch Spatial Relation to public attention, and closes with the minimalist favorite “Mysteries of Chance.” All tracks have been mastered with care by the famed Dutch producer and engineer Alden Tyrell.

Limited vinyl edition of 300.

Miscalculations - Kill The Whole Cast

Miscalculations were formed in a dark, asbestos-lined basement in Harlow and a towering loft overlooking the concrete, steel and flesh of North London.

Absorbing their environment, watching, analyzing and calculating. Miscalculating.

Black Egg - Melencolia

BLACK EGG est un code secret, une intention speciale, une discipline du chaos.

Dans un temps où la rigueur n’est qu’un concept économique, nous affirmons notre désir, sans concession, avec persistance, selon le mot de Coil, et obstination. Un art sans concession, guidé par l’absolu du désir et de la perfection, en dehors des modes et de la complaisance, puisé au fond de la chair et de l’esprit, profondément, rigoureusement.

BLACK EGG est un collectif, une œuvre, une voie vers la lumière, vers la lumière noire du rêve, vers le réel intérieur, ouvert au-dedans.

Nous croyons en la pureté brutale, en une poésie mutilée, en une musique révélée, en un monde sonique où la paresse n’a pas sa place.

Nous voulons une musique, une esthétique qui change la vie, un art de vivre et de mourir.

Limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies, white vinyl, gatefold.

Brooklyn post-punk/dream pop band The Harrow walk a fine line between the alluring and the surreal. Driving, club-centric electronics nestle against lush organic instrumentation, woven with vivid songcraft. The result is a hauntingly familiar sound that is never complacent in scope.

Cold Showers - Plantlife

Cold Showers, a band formed in Highland Park, California in 2010, fuses the brash power of their shoegaze pedigree with the smokey compulsions of post-punk / no-wave ancestors. Cold Showers would fit in well amongst their idols on the Factory or early Rough Trade back catalog, but blend in perfectly amongst the unique foliage of the Dais Records roster. Cold Showers sophomore album out sees the band step up to the plate with more pop sensibility under their belt. This is the pervasive pop mode against which Cold Showers cast themselves, but haven’t fully relinquished themselves from their signature piston-precision rhythms and anthem laden synthesizer illuminations that came about within the band’s formation.

Limited edition of 300 hand numbered copies, white vinyl.
