this is probably one of my favorite record labels today. there's such variety in their releases and they are consistently solid. check out some of the music below!

I do really enjoy most of the stuff they release. Who would have thought that witch house would evolve into a respectable genre? it was such a bullshit marketing-oriented flash in the pan when it first came up.

Yeah, probably one of my top labels in recent years. I have almost everything that's been released on this label. Solid collective, TONS of deep moody atmosphere throughout, love it. I've been meaning to her some more Wife but it's been hard to track down.

I think TRI▽ANGLE avoided that by really honing in on good artists and not getting focused on maintaining itself as a "witch house" label. I think even now with so many R&B influenced releases coming out by hyped producers the artists on TRI▽ANGLE still stand out.

 

I always had a good feeling about the label's future when I heard this mix by the founder:

definitely check out vessel's album. you will be pleasantly surprised. it definitely has more of a techno vibe than anything else on tri-angle records.

 

i like holy other's album, but it can get a bit samey. i would suggest listening to it if you're in a dark mood. it would fit very well in that sort of situation. but for casual listening you could skip over it and i don't think you'd be at a loss. of course, others will have different opinions. a lot of people found purity ring's album very repetitive, but i thought it had a great balance of variation/consistency. idk man, it can never hurt to have a listen. you might really dig it!

Holy Other and Purity Ring are very similar in the sense that they've pinpointed a distinct sound and stuck with it. It's not so much repetitive as it is very consistent - they figure out what works for them and just focus on that. I feel like M83s old albums were the same way, even down to the structure of the build-ups.

Balam Acab's album was brilliant

 

My issue with this album is that it seems like some of the most excellent tracks are only on the Rough Trade exclusive (??) bonus disc. So, I want a physical copy but now I have to track that weird-ass version down instead of a normal one.

I can recommend the Holy Other and Vessel albums too, not so impressed with the Balam Acab album, too many pitched vocals ruining tracks, Rough Trade bonus disc good though, especially Heavy Living Things.

 

When is the Haxan Cloak album out? I loved his Latitudes release, not so keen on the debut album though.

 

Not heard of Wife before, will have to track down the Stoic EP.
