We have new stuff from Squintfucker press, Erewhon, 18k, Dekorder, or artists such as jgzrinich and Marc Behrens. And specially, the new Cronica releases, a cd and dvd (sold separetely) featuring dozens of great artists.

And if you want to get some not so recent cds of Sirr catalogue, this is your chance. We have a great late summer special prices that, with your help, will allow us not just to clean the shelves, but also to prepare new releases. Take a look: we’re offering 6 cds for 50 euros or jrzinich “insular regions” with two more at your choice for only 30 euros.

New reviews regarding our recently published cds Insular Regions by jgrzinich and “untitled songs – 49 years after gesang der jünglinge” have been posted in the reviews page:

About jgrzinich’s “insular regions”, Steve Roden dix it: “jgrzinich’s insular regions is one of the most beautiful drone/field recording combinations I’ve heard in a long time”.

And TJ Norris at Igloo Magazine finishes with this delicious words: “It’s a
long trek through this vast forest, and I am not sure if granny would be
awaiting anyone with pie of any kind.” About “untitled songs, 49 Years from
‘Gesang der Jünglinge’ (2005-1956), Dan Warburton wrote a great review for
