It has taken over four very active years for the people behind the Finders Keepers label family to finally return to what we still consider to be one of our favourite vinyl projects. The ongoing Disposable Music library subscription series is a series which pools some of the best emotive, comprehensive, previously unavailable instrumental music from the unmarked archives of experimental artists within the expanding Finders Keepers family and presents it as a series of limited uniformed archival vinyl discs. Like all the most influential library music labels on the 60s, 70s and 80s the music from DiM is sourced, compiled and produced catering to the requirements of the film, television and radio industries but as the interest in thematic instrumental ‘picture music’ seep deeper into the record collector psyche these limited multi-purpose discs are naturally recommended for whichever creative application you see fit. Each disc combines two full musical programmes sourced from both vintage archives and new exclusive recordings by contemporary artists specially paired to compliment the individual musical sensibilities and mutual affection.
This time Disposable Music are proud to bring you metronomic jazz made for the Swiss cheese information board; wind synth music designed for planetariums; possessed pastoral mechanical folklore sounds; primitive electric organ sci-fi music; Spaghetti Western themes for Scandinavian fashion shows; drum machine music for household appliances; unused Polish detective theme tunes; Gallic dreamscapes for graveyard dates; mouthorgan music for mutants; Eastern street music field studies, and a selection of commercially unreleased tracks that have been recycled from French and American horror soundtracks, short-run TV ads, one-off radio programmes and educational science programmes. Having learned, enjoyed and expanded since the first run of DiM we are very excited to unleash this custom collection to your ever expanding music tastes.
Exclusively housed in uniformed die-cut sleeves designed by Finnish pattern designer Paola Suhonen of Ivana Helsinki with the optional inclusion of a limited edition tote bag for subscription participants. Subscribers will receive the first two releases with the tote bag and a new instalment of the series each month until the end of the year.
