Labradford

Prazision

1994

Alternative/Indie Rock

Sparse drones, minutely plucked guitars, keys and vocals darting through the mix like elusive vapor trails; the album is a monochromatic dream sequence that fades and flickers as it soundtracks the moments in between the moments of life. The perfect record to kick off years and years of like-minded records from Kranky.

The Sound of Summer Running

1997

Post-Bop

This roster of jazz musicians (Frisell, Metheny, Johnson and drummer Joey Baron) had the potential to produce a bombastic noodley explosion of an album but instead turned out a warm, summery, laid-back melodic charmer.
