Here are some of the brand new netlabel releases at the Internet Archive. These are currently in play in our environments. The set opens up with R. Stevie Moore. Personally, I think his Comfort Stand release is more fun, but that may just be from overplaying it! The Winter Tales compilation is quite varied, so even if the first tracks aren't your cup of tea, you might get lucky! I'm feeling pretty lucky hearing all of these releases that I'd have never found without the Internet and the Internet Archive! Enjoy!
R. Stevie Moore - Hobbies Galore [LF060MP3]

allthatfall - hopecrash [luv005]
"kevin (allthatfall) has a way with tiny sounds. his samples sometimes flow and sometimes fight - guitars crashing through a quintet of humming radiators or maybe the fey voices of children and passersby. it's probably because he sometimes records as panda kommander that i can't shake the image of monochrome figures of panda bears bubbling out of his synthesizers like so many angled bleeps and crackles... pandacore!"

Eloi Brunelle - Psychotonic EP [EPS14]
March 4th, 2005
"Here's a man who definitely needs no introduction: Eloi Brunelle, man at the center and founder of the Epsilonlab label. This explosive release still red hot from the lab's furnaces and destined to shine demonstrates how his sound is threaded with his personality. Open those ears and receive the very essence of Epsilonlab, via four distinctive tracks with souls of their own. It's a roller-coaster ride starting with a biting, deep intro transforming into the energy of the mad scientist and his contraptions sliding through a warm, festive jet stream rouding up with a slow concoction that will make you smile.
