Today Auricular Records begins the celebration of our 25th year of bringing you all our specific brand of soundart, experimental and difficult music. It is hard to think back to those beginnings when we signed a lease on a store front in San Francisco and the next day were hit by the Loma Prieta earthquake. We do know we could never ever do what we do without all the artists that have become a part of the Auricular Records family. From that first ultra lo-fi compilation cassette sewn up with twine between two 7" vinyl records featuring Haters, Big City Orchestra, Molecules and Nux Vomica to our double enhanced CD in a tasty gatefold jacket by PAS Musique & Philippe Petit due out next week - it has been incredible. Over 123 artists spanning the entire globe have appeared on our compilations or have had solo releases through us. We are hoping to bring some special treats to everyone during the course of this 25th year so stay tuned!
Special thanks to all the artists who are members of the Auricular Records family.
