Hand Drawn Dracula Branches Out with Artificial Records Sublabel
Published Oct 19, 2012Over the years, Toronto record label Hand Drawn Dracula has delivered a diverse run of records from the likes of By Divine Right, Holy Fuck and Wintersleep, among others, but the company is looking to expand its scope even further via a new experimental imprint called Artificial Records.
According to an announcement from HDD, the new sublabel will "focus on cultivating artists patrolling the electronic, drone, and dark corners of the music scene." The imprint will be run by Josh Voynovich and Hand Drawn Dracula founder James Mejia.
Up first from Artificial is a new 12-inch from Philadelphia post-punk trio Dream Affair. A tracklist has yet been made available, but you can check out the video for the single "The Porter" down below. You can nab the set digitally in December, while the physical edition should arrive sometime in February.
