New Words For Old Wounds is William Ryan Fritch's parting gift to those that supported his ambitious eleven album subscription series, The Leave Me Sessions merges the colorful orchestration and high drama bombast of albums like Heavy and Emptied Animal, the sweeping soundscapes of his finest works for film, and the restrained, nuanced textures of Empty to create its own distinct identity that is both haunting and infectiously exuberant. With guest vocal appearances by DM Stith, Powerdove, and Ceschi Ramos, New Words furthers the collaborative spirit found on Revisionist and seamlessly laces each of the artists unique talents into his compositions.

"Entralling and Doomy... with bewitching original artwork" - BANDCAMP
"Fritch's strongest and most emotionally resonant work yet" - TINY MIX TAPES
"Dense, hallucinatory indie-folk whose semi-ecstatic energy level is so powerful it can barely be contained" - TEXTURA
"The orchestral instruments are mixed so cleanly and fully that they seem to be pushing against the inner walls of the speakers." - A CLOSER LISTEN
Western Skies Motel - Settlers

In the dry desert of Arizona that Lost Tribe Sound calls home, a letter is received from guitarist René Gonzàlez Schelbeck who’s eager to share a collection of intimately composed songs, titled Settlers. Upon listening, we are immediately enthralled. There’s a timeworn, arid, and almost badlands quality to Schelbeck’s hypnotic, cyclical guitar style. It seems to perfectly capture the lonely, barren landscape of the American West.
Mastered for vinyl by Taylor Deupree (12k), and with the additional step taken to create the master lacquers with Roger Seibel at SAE Mastering, Settlers sees a 180-gram heavy weight gatefold release very similar to the recent Mute Forest debut, Deforestation. The acetate and test pressings were scrutinized for anomalies on world-class vinyl setups at Arizona’s esteemed audio dealer, Arizona Hi-Fi. First 50 purchasers of the physical editions of Settlers will also receive the six song bonus EP, Generations. Mastered by Kirk Marrison of Kiln (Ghostly Intl.)
"The Danish musician’s experimental folk instrumentals blend cyclical guitar and droning harmonium into hypnotic reimaginings of Americana style graced by the life experience of a post-rock fan who cut his teeth in punk bands" - TINY MIX TAPES
"The music penetrates each living cell and every atom, evading all analysis and tests...it feels so very raw and special" - HEADPHONE COMMUTE
9/10 STARS "I’m not sure if Schelbeck has seen No Country For Old Men, but I’m pretty sure if you hooked this album up and let it play underneath, it’d sync up Floyd/ Wizard of Oz style." - DROWNED IN SOUND
William Ryan Fritch has another stunning full length album out now, titled Clean War. It’s a woozy descent into some of the dirtiest psych music around. Clean War delves into an entirely new world, one which comparatively speaking would rest comfortably alongside the dank tape delayed burial grounds of Ian William Craig and Leyland Kirby's Caretaker project.
The Reforestation EP is out now worldwide, the same day as Mute Forest's debut Deforestation. It features remixes from Kiln, Porya Hatami, Mombi, Western Skies Motel, Spheruleus, and two brand new originals from Mute Forest. The EP comes FREE with the Vinyl Edition, or sold separately above.
