Merck Records Closing Its Doors
The label home to releases by Mr. Projectile, Machine Drum, Lackluster, and many other fine electronic musicians, announced that as of release #100, due out later this fall, it will close its doors for good. No concrete reason was given. It only states on the label's website the old refrain of "it's time to move on."
The label is currently at #90. Once they've reached 100, they intend sell their remaining stock, at which time there will be no more represses. MP3s will still be available from iTunes and Bleep, but if it's hard copies of the music you're after, get them while supplies last.
