Lightarmour Editions

The rebellious and inquisitive musical spirit is unrelenting, and the aspiration for beauty (both light and dark) essential. Now is the time, again.

What The . . .

Lightarmour Editions is a Record Label and Multimedia Studio inspired by an underlying musical zeitgeist rather than any specific genre; the jewelled ghost of primal-era Factory, 4AD, Mute, Fast Product, and Rough Trade (amongst many others, including Australia’s Volition) has been in the air for some years now, and the Post-CorporateHipHopPop generation has gagged on crass and vacuous non-imagination long enough . . .

"Zeitgeist" |ˈzʌɪtɡʌɪst|

the defining spirit or mood of a particular period of history as shown by the ideas and beliefs of the time. From German, literally “spirit of the age”; Zeit, meaning “time,” and Geist, meaning “spirit” or “ghost.”

Retrospective E.P.#1 Edition LE/005 is the first of two retrospective releases of remastered Fate Razor material circa 1993 to 2000. Retrospective E.P.#1 collects 5 tracks previously available only on compilations long out-of-print; a snapshot of the sound and headspace of that era – dimly lit swangsongs to lost love, Situationist manifestos and globalist defiance delivered via Dalek angst, deity-destroying mantras in metallic glitter, nihilism, and the raw thrill of sampling and sound.

Crimson Boy - Street Gods and Neon Dogs

Crimson Boy

Street Gods and Neon Dogs

Moving through the vaguely-cinematic landscape of “Street Gods” and “Neon Dogs”, there are encounters with string-machine anthems celebrating the power of sound and imagination; “Here are the Young Men”, drum machine exorcisms on love’s abuse; “I Will Sacrifice”, and tight Kraftwerkian paens to human aspiration caught in the teeth of life’s machinery; the “Hearts in Armour” trilogy. . .

Crimson Boy

Always Alana (NightStar Remix)

An extended bassline-centric reworking of track 8 from the Street Gods and Neon Dogs album. If Depeche Mode, New Order, Ladytron, and Sisters of Mercy collided on a street corner would it sound like this? . . .Nah. . .

Lake Lustre - Cocoons

Lake Lustre

Cocoons

Something unique this way cometh; having circumnavigated Europe’s key musical hubs, Melbourne-based composer and visual artist Joe Scerri manages to affix the veil of 4AD’s soft-focus beauty to the streamlined fidget of a post-glitch/lounge underframe, the result is. . .

Edition: LE/005

Fate Razor - Retrospective E.P.#1

Fate Razor

Retrospective E.P.#1

A snapshot of the sound and the headspace of primary-era Fate Razor, the 5-track retrospective is comprised of dimly-lit swansongs to lost love, Sitiuationist manifestos and globalist defiance delivered via Dalek agitation, deity-destroying mantras in metallic glitter, nihilism, angst, and the raw thrill of sampling and sound.

Fate Razor is the Mr Hyde to CB’s Dr Jekyll – a much harsher, darker twin soul fastened to a dense propulsive sound that melds industrial noise, dub, electronica, and bastardised hip-hop. After a hiatus of over a decade, two EP’s of songs sourced from ’93 onwards are been released in prep for new material.. . .
