    Januar is available in this physical, lathe cut record version only, in an edition of just 40 copies. The clear record comes in a hand worked record jacket with an archival printed, modified sepia toned print of Aidan and Stefan as the god Janus on the front, with a central musical figure, cut from an ancient book of hymns, and it’s/their all-seeing eye! The back covers have a uniquely original, 100+ year old print of ancient, German wrought iron gates, each opening to show a printed, stamped and numbered credit sheet inside. The jackets are then bound with twine that is threaded through both a title stamped scrap, and a metal clock hand. The artists names are hand typed at the bottom of rack musical sheet on a classic, German, Olympia cursive/script typewriter. As usual the fantastic sounding records are cut by Bladud Flies , in Wales, UK…

about

TRS has a new release! The upcoming album Januar is a collaborative, improvisational beauty from Berlin based musician Aidan Baker, of the duo Nadja, and Canadian musician and political activist Stefan Christoff, with Aidan on guitar and electronics, and Stefan at the piano.

This is a musical landscape of dynamic scope…of contrast and acceptance, and of an indelible urgent restraint. The chiming, shivering, rolling tones of the piano flow out the windows of the large open room and are absorbed into the world without. The rumblings of industry…the throbbing drone of the world of man, and the dense echoes of his noise outside embrace the bright and melancholic melodies, and together this beauty is formed, and rises to our ears and to the sky.

Januar will be available digitally, as well as in a physical, lathe cut record version in an edition of just 40 copies. The clear record comes in a hand worked record jacket with an archival printed, modified sepia toned print of Aidan and Stefan as the god Janus on the front, with a central musical figure, cut from an ancient book of hymns, and it’s/their all-seeing eye! The back covers have a uniquely original, 100+ year old print of ancient wrought iron gates, each opening to show a printed, stamped and numbered credit sheet inside. The jackets are then bound with twine that is threaded through both a title stamped scrap, and a metal clock hand. The artists names are hand typed at the bottom of the musical sheet on a classic, German, Olympia cursive/script typewriter. As usual the fantastic sounding records are cut by @bladudflies , in Wales, UK…

The god Janus was symbolic of beginnings, transitions, entrances and gates, and time…and like the month named after him, was responsible for ushering in the future. The album Januar is an inspired soundtrack to those hopeful ideals, and this future of ours!
