[LISTEN] Numb.er // Goodbye


Numb.er is the sonic brainchild of Los Angeles based photographer and visual artist Jeff Fribourg. With a background in graphic design, Fribourg imbues his work with a sense of architectural composition, layering angular guitar riffs and analog synths over throbbing drums and driving bass. 

Fribourg developed his love affair with synthesizers -- and his open-minded approach to music -- as a founding member of LA psych-kraut favorites Froth. However, it was only with the creation of Numb.er that he was able to fully explore his eclectic musical inclinations. Combining elements of punk, shoegaze and post-punk, the project never commits to a singular worldview, allowing Fribourg’s vision to go anywhere without sounding ironic or forced. 



With the release of Goodbye, the band’s first LP due in late May on felte, Numb.er offers a genre-defying sonic document that finds them maximizing the creative potential of the studio while always remaining true to their dynamic and arresting live sound. Mixed and mastered by Mikey Young of Total Control, Numb.er takes a carefully orchestrated approach to chaos and adds Fribourg’s own subtle knack for memorable hooks and soft, melodic passages.

REPLICANT // The Resistance


The year is 2018. A maniacal demagogue remains in control of the federal government, but not without protest. An election looms as chaos ensues, fracturing the general public. This will undoubtedly be this republic’s most decisive test – to succumb to mania or renew its commitment to democracy. Resistance is not futile. 

All donations will be transferred to the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project to protect the right to vote from spineless officials peddling disenfranchisement and hellbent on staying in power at all costs. 

Released a month before the pivotal mid-term elections, The Resistance follows The Reckoning, as Part II of "A Taste of Midnight" - a portrait of our modern dystopia, and a scathing commentary of our current ill-equipped administration.

CUTS // A Slow Decay



UK-based audio/visual artist CUTS came into the world at the tail end of 2012, claiming the influences of abandoned spaces, white noise and sleep paralysis.



'A Slow Decay' precedes the debut album from composer and filmmaker CUTS, featuring the lead single 'A Gradual Decline' and two new compositions. The music addresses the planet’s current fragility using actual field recordings of ice collapsing from glaciers, weaving these momentary, dramatic events directly into the DNA of the music.

Chasms // Divine Illusion



Divine Illusion” is an homage to the loved ones the duo lost in Oakland’s Ghost Ship fire. Created in the haze of confusion that follows devastating loss, the song reflects on longing to connect with those who have left this realm. As the band shifts their sound toward the murky depths of dub with an upcoming LP to be released on the Felte label in early 2019, “Divine Illusion” is the final chapter of the duo’s industrial / shoegaze sound. The song also serves as a farewell to the Bay Area, to an era that has passed.
