Serein v4

Serein v4. Online UK label Serein's last redesign saw a number of ambient and experimental albums released for free. They've redesigned again with a slightly more realistic business model, and in addition to the two releases out so far, they've put out three free "forecasts" so far, mixtapes of a sort, arranged by the artists. Three is the latest, and by halfway through I knew it would likely be appreciated here.

They do very nice work. This might be useful to those of you who still like to get your music in plastic and cardboard format (weirdos!).

They had 18 free releases from 2005-2008, if Discogs is accurate. That back catalog is available on Archive.org, though it might take some prodding to find all 18 prior releases. I found SER001 by searching Archive.org for the term, as it wasn't listed under the Muhr category on the label.

thanks, filthy. Yeah, apparently giving the music away didn't work for them. I hope they rerelease some of those, though, Red After Image was awesome too.

According to Discogs, at least a few of the releases were put out on limited edition CDr, including Red After Image. That same release was available as a 320kbps MP3 release, but it's on Archive.org as VBR MP3. In other words, the Archive.org version is a bit lower quality than the original MP3s, if Discogs is to be believed.
