Description: We were having a clear up and found a few copies of this quite lovely Machinefabriek lathe cut 2x7" featuring some beautiful paintings by Rebecca Norton that we released back in 2012 on our now defunct Fake Jazz imprint.
Note: These are unique musical artefacts. Each of these lathe cut records was made one at a time, in real time, on a 1940's mono record lathe. It was cut onto polycarbonate plastic (plexiglass), a material intended to be used for point of sale displays and unbreakable windows, not records. Therefore, the fidelity of these records is different from that of a traditional record. A small amount of pop and crackle is an unfortunate and inevitable part of the cut, but the plastic also builds up static electricity which attracts dust and causes additional noise. To remove the dust and static, use a dry, lint free cotton cloth and wipe along the grooves. Lowering the highest frequencies on the EQ of your stereo will also help reduce noise. Because of the hardness of the material, the grooves are also shallower than its mass produced counterpart. This means that these records do not play well on all turntables. When possible, adjust the tonearm weight and anti-skate to improve tracking. all of these records have been play tested to ensure that they do not skip on a properly calibrated turntable. These records will not harm your turntable or needle and will not degrade after multiple plays.

the latest entry in a very impressive catalog, this album is a gift from quiet details to the world. a welcome respite from sources of worry and trouble, it is interesting but calm enough to work its way in without me even noticing -- a minute went by before I even realized it was ended. almost playful at times with careful attention to detail, "frost forms" continues the observatories magic.
