We are huge fans of Hand Drawn Dracula Records and are really excited that they have announced a division of the label called Artificial Records. This new division will focus on cultivating artists in the electronic, drone, and dark corners of the music scene. Artificial Records is Josh Voynovich (Artificial / Forming parties) and James Mejia (Hand Drawn Dracula / Mejia Design).
The first release on the label is Dream Affair‘s 12″ (February 2013) and Digital (December 2012) album. We are loving the first video The Porter lifted from the 12″ – take a listen / watch the video below via YouTube.
Pitchfork accurately describes the young Brooklyn trio as “gothic sounds of 1980s Britain – fusing voguish Cure/Sisters of Mercy-derived morosity with industrial and pop leanings”.
