  • lee noble – un look – patient sounds

    out of stock

    Based in Los Angeles, Lee Noble is a musican and artist that creates provocative and generally shadowy work fused with materiality and wear. Un Look adheres to Lee’s aesthetic, feeling worn, maybe slightly musty. And yet, it offers some of his most glimmering and forward pop-structured songs yet. His voice feathers about in the dust. The drones are thick, the drums rattle and glass, guitars jangling in the hall. A phantom violinist. See through it, or don’t at all. Instead unsee.

  • lee noble – ruiner – bathetic records

    out of stock

    Lee Noble has stepped out from behind his lair walls to unveil Ruiner, the follow-up to 2011’s show-stopping Horrorism. Noble is progressing with his vaporous sound, once again turning the idea of pop music elemental and stealing your heart. There’s a warbling, home-spun quality to Ruiner, with it’s atmosphere soaked in the warmest of fuzzy hiss, guitars woven into and around organs, and Noble’s voice, a combination of moans and whispers.

    Ruiner doesn’t just pick up where Horrorism left off, it moves beyond it, with its hooks and with its drive. Ruiner is an album that will dominate you. It’s a record that demands full attention, start to finish. It’s a full album in every sense of the word; each part compliments the other, but it is absolutely a collection of songs.

    Noble isn’t just walking in fields of ambient air and drone dirges, he’s bending and manipulating sounds and textures to craft his art. It straddles between a world of ethereal experimental music and fleshed out indie-rock. Weighing heavier on the former, it finds itself a Grouper-meets-Radiohead in a basement type affair. He has created a sound that feels familiar, comfortable, and lived-in – but it’s entirely his own sound. You immediately know when you’re listening to Lee Noble.

    With Ruiner, the sounds are worn well, they’ve been thought about, they’ve been executed with Noble’s delicate touch, and they’ve been strung together beautifully. Ruiner is an ardent record, and it’s a heavy listen, that’ll have you introspective and reflecting. It’s unquestionably both haunting and gorgeous, but what else would you expect from Lee Noble?


  • lee noble – persona – bridgetown

    out of stock

    No stranger to making weirdness accessible and relatable, Lee Noble presents a new full-length album of alien loner transmissions broadcast and received just down the hill from Dodger Stadium in downtown Los Angeles, CA. The sound of sparkling lights burning out all across an isolated island on a comet hurtling through the interstellar tropics, burying the familiar tones of keyboard and plucked guitar somewhere off in the distance.


  • lee noble – our star, the sun – moon glyph

    Lee Noble’s “Our Star, the Sun” marks Moon Glyph’s eighteenth release. Recorded in his Los Angeles bedroom, Noble’s album is an epic drone encounter with big concepts as well as an expansive emotional spectrum. Implementing an array of instruments such as harmonium, korg ms-10, and guitar, the songs spiral around a notion the instrumentalist describes as “leaving small memories behind when you look at the scale of the universe” – really one of many touchstones of inspiration cited by Noble himself. By gerrymandering passages of subtle catharsis out of alienating tones, “Our Star, the Sun” is a consummate performance that supports and sustains Noble’s complex themes.
    Ed. of 150.

  • lee noble/ ensemble economique – motion forever

    out of stock

    The composers of two magnificent albums in 2011, Lee Noble (Horrorism) and Brian Pyle, aka Ensemble Economique (Crossing The Pass By Torchlight), have agreed to join forces for a superb ambient/drone/pop collaboration. The project goes beyond allocating one side of microgroove per artist, theming itself as a whole around Brian’s poem and Lee’s visuals. The result of these two Californian artists’ harmonious fusion will overwhelm listeners with auditory emotion.


  • hobo cubes / lee noble/ derek rogers / rambutan – split – deep tapes

    out of stock

    Music from 4 different, strange dimensions…

    Hobo Cubes is Frank Ouellette, a cat from Montreal who makes some unbelievable, space-age, mind floating sounds, runs the fantastic Hobo Cult Records & Moduli TV. Sleep Searchers is truly a trip to another planet…
    transcending the river:

    Lee Noble lives in Los Angeles and runs No Kings Records. Lee’s sound perfectly straddles a line of pop harmony, guitar freakout and synth drones in a very beautiful and interesting way. Lee’s work on this split is in this spirit…
    indian princess:

    Derek Rogers is amazing. This work feels very organic to me, and evolves in a very natural way. He seems to get more focused and natural with every recording I have the pleasure of hearing.
    behold, you have not understood (III):

    Rambutan is Eric Hardiman (Century Plants, Tape Drift). Eric’s sounds have a weight to them, a very heavy feeling, that’s deeply emotional, yet it maintains a playfulness that keeps it captivating. Enjoy immersing yourself in his world of guitar/synthesizer textures…
