Compilation / VA

Sagittarius

Limited Edition of 100 copies. Cassette compilation, black shells, 4 panels both sides printed. 21 Tracks. Free digital download at bandcamp. It’s time for Umor Rex to issue a new compilation, to include the sounds of artists who have released records on our label, plus friends; artists whose work we admire. Umor Rex is a bit superstitious, and each collection celebrates some astronomical movements. In 2011 we published Dezember. Because December is the month with the shortest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. In December the artists spend more hours creating music. In addition there is a sympathy for the night and the absence of color. This year our collection is called Sagittarius, the dominant sign in this month, and functions as an offering to the December solstice, which will happen on the 21st, the longest night of the year. 21 tracks, 21 artists. The digital version is totally free. We have also released a cassette version limited to 100 copies only. The cassettes are available only from Thrill Jockey , Experimedia and Morr Music.
