Greetings from Accretions!

2023 saw a steady stream of releases from mainstays Marcos Fernandes, Hans Fjellestad and Damon Holzborn then came to a trippy end with Shizka Ueda's debut a small sun. With both songs and improvisations, this yearend offering encapsulated the label's motto of sonic explorations. And so we continue the journey in 2024 as we await our 100th release (who and what will it be?) plus approach our 40 year mark (yes, we turn 40 in 2025). Becoming aware of these hallmarks makes us ever more grateful for the artists' resolute creative pursuits and your continued support over the years. thanks for listening!
