Wud Records: web traffic reaches new monthly high

Posted by Wudmaster on 16/11/13

Back in August 2013 the web traffic for Wud Records reached a new monthly high and almost broke the 3000 unique hits mark for the first time. This is an improvement of around 7% on our previous record, which was set in October 2012.

Curiously, this figure was achieved during a time when our office technology was largely broken for the second half of the month, which means word of mouth played a big part.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all 2955 of our visitors in August and hope you enjoyed yourselves while you were here, and do come back soon. Oh, and please tell your friends about Wud Records and how splendid we are!

Dark Company: Broken Tubes and Listen

Posted by Wudmaster on 13/11/13

We finally uploaded Broken Tubes and Listen, the final two sonic upgrades for the Mind Dance album by Dark Company. Broken Tubes is track #13 and Listen track #14 of Mind Dance. This brings the entire collection up to full alpha status.

Dark Company have not been very active in recent times as they have been busy with other commitments or suffering illness. Dark Company hope to be able to return to the important business of making music again soon.

These two latest mixes are produced to full alpha stage. Both Broken Tubes and Listen will require further performance and production work before they are completed, as indeed will the rest of the alpha mixes from the Mind Dance album.

If you would like to listen to Broken Tubes, Listen, or indeed the whole of Dark Company’s Mind Dance album as it stands right now, you can do so by clicking here.

Wud Records: recommended albums at Bandcamp

Posted by Wudmaster on 09/11/13

Wud Records have changed their three recommended albums at Bandcamp. If you would like us to recommend your album at Bandcamp, please contact us by emailing info@wudrecords.co.uk and if we like it we’ll add you to our rotation list. We aim to change our recommendations every six weeks or so, if we remember and the Wud Records office technology doesn’t break!

These are our new recommended albums at Bandcamp:
http://greatpagans.bandcamp.com/album/great-pagans-ep
Dreamy, evocative, whimsical, beautiful harmonies and lakes of guitar, fueled by the quiet power of the underdog. You will want them to win! Utterly enchanting post-Smiths indie pop rock grunge.

http://sleepingbrothersrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-independent-hand
Lo-fi heartfelt self-deprecating musical comedy from The Throats on Sleeping Brothers Records. A collage of emotions crafted of leftfield sounds add to the wonderful guitar/voice arrangements.

http://wearehighlow.bandcamp.com/album/raygun-ep
Hi-energy big sound post-shoegaze indie rock from Southend, England. Guitar wall assaults your senses and great use of vocal harmonies. Hints of Foo Fighters and The Who. Came to us via Twitter.

These are our previous recommended albums at Bandcamp:
http://sleepingbrothersrecords.bandcamp.com/album/assembly
Fabulous quirky lo-fi rock from the talented entertaining Pink Lights on Sleeping Brothers Records. We love what Sleeping Brothers are all about and their awesome cassette-salvaged archive repertoire.

http://hungersleeprecords.bandcamp.com/album/propeller-album
This album is a beautiful, cerebral, multi-genre collection of lovingly produced songs. It has a ‘big’ sound and was created with careful attention to detail. These songs will stick inside your head.

http://karlzumar.bandcamp.com/album/my-guitar
Charming and quirky, the wonderful original songs on this album are performed with ease by Karl. His voice and guitar recordings contain elements of legendary folk Johns – Rembourn, Martyn and James.

Dark Company: Alien Heat beta mixes

Posted by Wudmaster on 08/11/13

All of the beta mixes for the forthcoming Alien Heat album by Dark Company have now been uploaded to the Wud Records site. The most recent additions to the Alien Heat playlist are Alpha Omega, Jigsaw, Crash and The Joker.

If you would like to listen to the Alien Heat album as it stands at present, please click here and then press play on the player in the new tab that opens.

All of the Alien Heat songs still need much work to finish them off. Alpha mixes are only ballpark approximations of songs, whereas beta mixes have been worked on some more with most parts recorded to varying degrees of finalisation, and they may even contain several elements that will appear in the final fully mastered mix.

It is said that it takes 95% of the time to do the first 95% of the work on a song, and then another 95% of the time to finish the last 5%. These songs are now into the final 95%. We hope you enjoy listening to these Dark Company songs.
