Yes, folks — Hydra Head Records boss and former Isis mastermind Aaron Turner has officially announced his label partnership Sige with Faith Coloccia of Mamiffer.
The Sige label will release Mamiffer‘s new outing Mare Decendrii on March 15.
“Sige was formed as an outlet for projects that Faith and I are directly involved in,” said Turner in a statement. “The idea was to create a situation whereby we could maintain control over our own music and art to the greatest extent possible, from the process of inception all the way through manufacturing and distribution.
“By approaching things this way we can have a greater level of certainty that the releases will meet our expectations and stay true to our original intent. It also allows us a channel through which to work more closely with those we collaborate with and thus further strengthen those ties.”
Mare Decendrii was co-produced by Randall Dunn — who has worked with Sunno))), Bjork, and Six Organs of Admittance — Coloccia and Turner; the disc features guest spots from Eyvind Kang, Earth’s Don McGreavy, Thrones’ Joe Preston, Mika Ratto and Jussi Lehtisalo of Circle, Russian Circles’ Brian Cook, Black Math Horseman’s Sera Timms, Travis Rommereim and others.
